PRENATAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
A Yoga-Alliance recognized 85-hour training

INTEGRAL YOGA INSTITUTE - NEW YORK CITY

MAY 11-14 and 18-20, 2018
10:00 - 6:00 pm

This training prepares Yoga teachers to teach classes in Prenatal Yoga. The specialized prenatal practices help the students tune into the needs and changes of pregnancy and promote relaxation and suppleness. The Prenatal Yoga pranayama, chanting, and visualizations are powerful tools for the mother to attune to her baby and its needs.

An in-depth review of the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, labor and birth sets the foundation for teachers’ understanding of the myriad benefits of Hatha Yoga for pregnancy. Teachers will gain extensive experience with asanas well-suited to pregnant women and a thorough understanding of contra-indications during pregnancy. The training will attune teachers to the profound physical, emotional, mental and spiritual transitions of pregnancy and birth and demonstrate how tools such as chanting, pranayama, deep relaxation and meditation can be effective ways of coping with these changes.

Discussions of the energy anatomy of pregnancy and birth will deepen teachers’ understanding of the Integral Yoga Prenatal Hatha Yoga practice.
