Prenatal Yoga Certification

July 18 - July 21


Yoga is a gift to the pregnant mother, her child and her family as well as a gift to the yoga teacher. In this Basic Level training students will learn the anatomy and physiology of the growing fetus and the resulting changes in the mother’s body during each trimester. Topics covered include fetal development, physiological and hormonal changes in the mother’s body as well as possible body responses to these changes. Appropriate asana, assisting, pranayama, sounding and meditation will be covered for each trimester, including post natal. Pregnancy discomforts during each stage will be explored along with ways to use yoga, non-traditional methods and traditional techniques to help alleviate these ( synonym for discomforts ) . Each day begins with a prenatal yoga class during which participants wear “pregnant bellies” for each trimester to simulate the experience of moving in a prenatal body. Class will be followed by theory, practical application and practice teaching. In addition, the course will provide tips for labor and birth, partner prenatal yoga and marketing oneself.
