with Avantika Waleryszak
Developing instructional skills in prenatal yoga allows you to add an entirely new dimension to your career as a yoga teacher and childbirth educator. In this training, you will be taught the skills and given the experience to develop classes for students that are overlooked by traditional yoga practices. More importantly, you will be able to help mothers-to-be relieve the aches and pains that are often associated with pregnancy.
Training will focus on modifications of traditional yoga postures for pregnancy, anatomy and physiology of the pregnant body, the changing needs of each trimester, prenatal pranayama, and creating sacred space for mothers and their babies. By participating in this professional workshop, each participant will receive the confidence to teach a fun, effective, and safe class for mothers-to-be.
