Teaching yoga during the time of pregnancy can be such a privilege. As a prenatal yoga teacher, it is vital to be able to create a consistent and supportive space for women at their most intense period of change in life.
This 4-day intensive training will provide the tools for teachers to deliver safe, creative and nurturing classes to women during all stages of their pregnancies – whether you’re integrating pregnant students into your class or teaching dedicated pre-natal classes. Each day will contain group practice and experience of pre-natal yoga, lectures, group exercises and teaching practice. There will be additional non-contact hours in the form of assignments and class observations.
The course will cover:
- Teaching pre-natal yoga classes
- Integrating a pregnancy student into a general class
- Anatomy and Physiology during each stage of pregnancy
- Emotional considerations and changes during pregnancy
- Common conditions and ailments during pregnancy, and how to adapt the practice
- Pranayama, meditation and relaxation for pregnancy
Who’s it for?
Yoga teachers (qualified and currently in training) who wish to teach Pregnancy yoga or better equip themselves for integrating pregnant students. It is also open to qualified practitioners in the field of pregnancy/birth support and other complementary health disciplines, although in this case please contact the studio for confirmation of your eligibility before making your booking online.
