What's the difference between Online Certification & In-Person Training?
As the weekend teacher training requires a large amount of interactive in-person partner work, we offer a specialized online certification to cover the most important part of a healthy FeetUp practice: SAFETY!
The online course only offers 1/3 of the required material of the official teacher training curriculum, hence the certification title is different (FeetUp Inversion Safety Specialist).
Our goal is create a pathway to support FeetUp enthusiasts who are ready to share their practice with others in a safe and informed way.
Although you won't be a fully certified FeetUp Instructor (yet), you will have the tools and insight to safely incorporate the Trainer into your existing practice and help others do the same.
