Course Objective

A certificate programme accredited by the Yoga Alliance, this Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher’s Training Course provides an excellent opportunity to expand your skills on teaching a specific group of students – pregnant women. The course guides one to develop the inner teacher within you and discover that everything we need is already within us. The course aims to guide you on how to use the practices as a tool for inner and outer transformation.
T he Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Course is intended to give better and deeper insight into the applications of Yogic practices and their benefits on pre and post-natal students. Most of the times students coming to prenatal yoga classes know that yoga will help them through their pregnancy, labour and beyond. By equipping oneself with a better understanding of the bodily changes over the trimesters and possible complications of pregnancy, Yoga teachers are able to be more sensitive and mindful of pregnant students by offering appropriate modifications as and when needed to make the practice suitable and comfortable.
T his course will cover fundamental understanding of the pregnant body and how to sequence a prenatal yoga practice. The course also covers the yogic perspective of pregnancy and how to use yogic tools to prepare oneself during the transitional phase of pregnancy and beyond.
