Prenatal yoga encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing for the expectant mother. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies by improving sleep quality, reducing stress, increasing strength & endurance, and decreasing lower back pain.
This workshop is for yoga teachers who work with, or wish to work with, pregnant and post-natal women in a group class setting or privately. This workshop is also for yoga teachers who teach public group classes that may be attended by pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy.
You will learn how to adapt yoga to the needs of the pregnant woman at each stage of pregnancy.
