About the course
Yoga teachers who teach to the general population need a basic understanding of prenatal yoga to provide safe instruction when pregnant women take regular yoga classes.
This workshop is designed to help yoga teachers and teacher trainees to go a step beyond what was learned in basic teacher training to become more familiar with the unique needs of this population. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the transformations of pregnancy, common discomforts, which asanas are contraindicated, how to appropriately modify poses and ways to adjust your lesson plan to ensure it is beneficial and safe for prenatal yoga students.
This workshop is open to certified yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainees.
