Prenatal Yoga Teaching Primer: The Do and Don't With Your Pregnant Students

Yoga and Pregnancy do in fact go hand in hand. The physical and mental benefits of yoga are particularly helpful to the pregnant student on their journey through pregnancy, birth and parenthood, and this short workshop is designed to de-mystify the process and remove the fear that is sometimes associated with pregnant students in public classes. In this 3-hour Prenatal yoga primer, we will endeavor to take the worry out of teaching a pregnant student and supply you with the basics to be safe and helpful in your teaching. We will cover some basic "Do's and Don't’s, " strengths and weaknesses in the pregnant body, and some helpful modifications to well known poses. Open to 200-hour level teachers and higher.

Helping Your Post-Partum Students Return To Their Practices, Group Classes, and Themselves

After the birth of a baby, the body, energy and psyche of the person have changed significantly. At this tender time, many people feel like their body is fragmented, weak or even like it is simply falling apart. They may be eager to jump back to regular group yoga classes and when they do, can sometimes find themselves feeling even worse.  This is a workshop for all yoga teachers to help their students understand how to practice safely through better alignment, through awareness in their yoga poses, and through sound integrity in any movement practices.
Through our detailed study of anatomy and alignment we will learn about the postpartum "Core," understand some common issues that the post-birthing body can encounter, such as Diastastis Recti, and learn about healing and supporting the pelvic floor. After the weekend you will feel more confident in supporting your students as they make their way back to public group yoga classes.  (10 hours of Teaching Methodology for Advanced Study Students)
