With contributions from midwife Emma Yate and a detailed training manual this course provides both the theoretical and practical training necessary to teach yoga classes specifically for pregnant women. Sessions will include mantra, mudra, nada yoga and pranavidya practices, encouraging you to think
for yourself and to develop your own style and method of teaching pregnancy yoga within a clear framework of safety guidelines. This course also includes some time on the early stage of postnatal recovery.
The emphasis of the course is on supporting healthy pregnancy through appropriate holistic yoga practices. There will be opportunities for teaching practice, as well as informal assessments during the course and you should be prepared for both a short pre-course assignment and written work during the course.
Uniquely, each day of this intensive training course begins with specially designed yoga nidra practices designed for pregnancy, and exquisitely beautiful meditations, sound practices and breath work that gives all students on the course a direct experience of the subtle power of yoga to support the transition to motherhood. There are also deep relaxation and sound practices in the afternoons, and a lot of direct and practical encounters with restorative yoga. The emphasis on practice experience and subtle yoga practice makes the learning process effortless and enjoyable.
