Motherhood can be exhilarating and daunting. As a woman's body begins to shift and change as the baby develops, it is hard to know how to stay healthy and supportive during the 3 trimesters. Yoga has been shown to help both the mental stresses as well as the bodily changes. A combination of Asana (poses), pranayama (breathwork) and yoga nidra (relaxation) are invaluable tools to assist women in shifting gracefully from pregnancy into motherhood. A prenatal yoga practice can strengthen, stretch, and tone the body, calm and relax the mind, and nurture and nourish the spirit during this most special time in a woman's life.
In this two-day training, we will explore:
Appropriate Asanas for each trimester of Pregnancy
The Anatomy and Physiology of Pregnancy
Breathing and Relaxation Techniques for a more comfortable Labor and latter Pregnancy
Structuring a Prenatal Class and Practice Teaching
**A manual will be included in the training fee
