The ShivaShakti Level 1 Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training provides participants with a strong foundation in teaching asana (poses), pranayama (breath work), and meditation to pregnant women. This 4-day course focuses on teaching yoga practices that support a pregnant woman by both relaxing and strengthening her body and mind. All three trimesters are covered in detail including both the development of the woman’s body and that of the growing baby. A strong emphasis is placed on understanding the anatomical and physiological changes happening within a body during pregnancy and how yoga can support the health of a pregnant woman.

One is educated in common discomforts of pregnancy, types of birth and birthing methods, and how yoga can prepare a woman for an easier birthing experience. Instruction is given in pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation to recognize fears/doubts around the birthing process and to encourage a peaceful state of mind for a pregnant woman. Participants learn ways to empower women to trust in the innate wisdom and power of their bodies and to embrace pregnancy and birth as an incredible and transformative experience.

This course is perfect for yoga instructors or dedicated yoga practitioners wanting to gain the basic skills necessary to teach yoga to pregnant women. This training is also excellent for health care professionals working with pregnant women, doulas, midwives, nurses, etc who have some prior yoga experience. Pregnant women who would like a deeper understanding of how yoga can support their health and wellbeing during pregnancy are also invited to attend.
