Course 2 : 7th – 11th September | 14th – 17th September 2020

Set over 85 hours across 9 days, this Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive background on the subject, as well as the tools required to teach safe, practical and effective classes.

Participants will learn how to use intelligent sequencing to confidently guide pregnant women through their prenatal journey and beyond, on both a physical and emotional level. The course helps develop a thorough understanding of the physical and biological changes in prenatal bodies, and awareness in postnatal bodies. Participants will be shown how to implement best practices in prenatal yoga, and will learn techniques for supporting and empowering both mums-to-be and new mums, providing them with the knowledge and tools needed to ease fatigue and build on their awareness of the emotional highs and lows bought on by pregnancy, and later in caring for an infant.
