The Pre/Postnatal Holy Yoga training is a 20-hour program that occurs as a 4-week home study program and includes weekly webinar meetings, instructional videos, individual journaling, required reading, personal practice, community participation and a student teaching practicum. This training is open to all adults who are interested in working with pregnant women. You do not need to be a previously certified yoga instructor to participate.
We will explore techniques to prepare and optimize a mother’s body for labor/delivery/birth, empowerment of women in birth experiences, fears of labor and delivery, common postural issues for pregnant women, and the concern of diastasis recti postpartum. This is not a program that takes yoga and modifies it to a pregnant body; it is a course that scientifically looks at what the body needs during pregnancy and labor, and then teaches how to use yoga to meet those needs.
I loved all the material we went through. I loved how it gave me more light on my own pregnancies, and that there are more people “out there” thinking like me. Now I have this down in a very concrete way and I can teach other women about the blessings of their bodies! Also the connection between body and emotions in the psoas section was very exiting!Kerrie Knox, R-HYI & Pre/Postnatal Holy Yoga
