PRENATAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING & CERTIFICATION
This is a rare opportunity, as Yoga Alliance usually requires in-person training for certifications and CEUs. Through December 31, 2021 they are allowing virtual trainings.
Prenatal Yoga is a great way for moms-to-be to stay physically healthy and emotionally grounded during pregnancy. It addresses challenges inherent to pregnancy and childbirth while nourishing the spirit to set the stage for confident parenting. Teaching yoga for pregnant women is a wonderfully fulfilling way to help women experience a more comfortable pregnancy and prepare for the demands of birth and beyond.
This comprehensive teacher training will provide you with a rich framework and effective tools to:
EXPAND your teaching and learn the benefits of yoga for pregnancy, birth, and beyond.
GAIN an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy.
LEARN sequencing and the essential components of a prenatal yoga class.
UNDERSTAND the energetics of pregnancy and how to use energetic yoga practices during and after pregnancy.
ADDRESS the common discomforts of pregnancy with specific yoga postures, breathing, and sequences.
ADAPT and modify group classes to accommodate pregnant women.
HELP women prepare for birth, physically, emotionally, and energetically.
FACILITATE a woman’s capacity to access her own inner wisdom and strength and empower her birthing experience.
A certificate of completion will be awarded upon completion of this 20-hour training and successful completion of the take home exam. This training qualifies as continuing education if you are registered through Yoga Alliance.
