An 85 Hour Registered Prenatal Yoga School through Yoga Alliance (RPYS)
Prenatal yoga celebrates the mom and baby connection and the beauty and power of a woman’s changing body. The ChildLight Yoga 85-Hour Prenatal and Postnatal Teacher Training prepares trainees to guide yoga students through the new motherhood year, from conception through postpartum. We cover best practices for safety, sequencing and teaching techniques for pre and postnatal yoga.
As a physical practice, yoga during pregnancy supports strength, endurance, and flexibility. Many expecting mothers find that regular practice improves circulation, combats fatigue, and reduces tension and stiffness in muscles and joints. As a mental discipline, yoga cultivates focus and emotional stability. Breathing exercises during prenatal yoga help mom relax deeply and connect with baby. ChildLight Yoga’s well-rounded training addresses the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga for pregnancy as well as important background information on health, anatomy, nutrition, Ayurveda and more.
Our three month training format allows participants to put teachings into practice between training weekends. Alternatively, when offered, the nine day intensive allows for complete immersion in the topic over 75 contact hours with our lead trainers.
Who should attend: This training is open to yoga teachers and experienced students of yoga with a strong desire to support women and mothers through pregnancy and beyond, including:
The training curriculum includes but is not limited to:
