Yoga and Pregnancy go hand in hand; the physical and mental benefits of yoga are particularly helpful in pregnancy on the journey through gestation, birth and parenting, and this workshop is designed to demystify the process and remove the fear that is sometimes associated with pregnant students in public classes. In this 15-hour Prenatal Yoga primer, we endeavor to take the worry out of teaching a pregnant student and supply you with the basics to be safe, knowledgeable and helpful in your teaching. We cover the anatomy of the pregnant body, some basic "Do's and Don'ts, " the strengths and weaknesses in a pregnant body, some helpful modifications to well-known poses, basic Ayurveda practices and thoughts about pregnancy, and how yoga can prepare one for birth both physically and mentally. This module can be taken as a stand-alone or as a requirement of the larger certification program.
