Conscious Pregnancy & Birthing Yoga Teacher Training

August 3-10, 2019

Join Jennifer and guest teachers for a comprehensive and holistic prenatal yoga teacher training, during which we will explore the precious time of the child birthing years. Not only will you deepen your knowledge of pregnancy, labor and birth, you’ll also learn techniques for on and off the yoga mat to support women through the myriad of transitions that occur before, during, and after birth. Becoming a prenatal yoga instructor means to contribute to the magic of bringing beings into this world – an incredibly important and rewarding task!

This training is geared towards certified 200-hour Yoga Teachers who wish to lead prenatal yoga classes in their communities. Participation is also available for non-certified yoga teachers who wish to broaden their experience and knowledge to supplement their existing practice of working with pregnant women (such as doctors/midwives/nurses/doulas/childbirth educators, etc.) Extra practicum time will be required for non-certified yoga teachers to enhance their teaching capabilities.

Topics covered:

  • The benefits of yoga for pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum
  • The essentials of Asana (postures), Pranayama (breath work), meditations & visualizations as well as vocal toning for the Mama-to-be
  • Sequencing a healthy prenatal yoga practice for all levels (including beginners and the experienced yogi)

During the training you will:

** given full participation, everyone will be supported and prepared for all assignments

Post-program requirements include reading assignments, attending prenatal yoga classes for observation & documentation, and one follow-up Skype consultation with the staff for review & any Q&A from the trainee.

To be considered for certification, you must participate in all training hours & homework assignments, and currently be a certified 200 hour Yoga Teacher.

A certificate of completion will be given to other providers/non-certified yoga teachers.
