Prenatal Yoga:

Supporting Health & Vibrance Through the 4 Trimesters
and Beyond

Develop the skills needed to create a safe and empowering yoga experience for expectant moms to feel vibrant, confident and supported during each stage of pregnancy. We’ll explore anatomy and physiology by trimester including physical changes, hormones, the pelvic floor, discomfort and how yoga can help plus postures, modifications and use of props. Beyond skill building for teachers,  this course is highly recommended for expecting, or TTC women who want to incorporate yoga more deeply into their wellness practices.

Curriculum includes:
• Physical and biological changes to the female body
• Development and growth of the baby, the stages of labor, and birth plans
• Debunking myths about pregnancy and exercise
• Breathing, relaxation and meditative techniques that may be used throughout pregnancy and into labor and delivery
• Postpartum considerations, depression, diastasis, and stages of recovery and returning to the mat
• Structuring classes for prenatal + safe practices for pregnant yogis in open-level class

PRICING: $550 ($450 early bird)
