The intention of this 25hour Prenatal and Postnatal Teacher Training course is to give you more tools to support and empower your students during and after pregnancy, in a group and in a private setting.
By the end of this course, you will be able to create sequences for each trimester of pregnancy and postpartum and you will understand better each phase of pregnancy, what to focus on and what to avoid.
As each woman is unique, her practice will also be. We all have different bodies with different limitations, strength, mobility and goals. It is fundamental to be able to adapt the shapes and the sequences to individuals. These are the subtleties of teaching yoga.
Each module will start with a led class designed for a certain trimester of pregnancy or postpartum. This is for you to be able to see how a class is led in this context and what type of cueing we use. We will also guide you through some special sequences such as one for diastasis recti or for post miscarriage. Each module will have an anatomy/physiology lecture, a section on affirmation and your intention as a yoga teacher for each month of pregnancy and postpartum.
We will cover in the teaching section, how to incorporate this new knowledge into your regular classes and give you lots of tutorials on how to teach pelvic floor and abdominal tonic, breathing exercises, guided meditation with scripts and much more.
