This training is residential and is 80 hours to meet with the strict standards of The Yoga Alliance UK. To apply for this course you will need to have completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training certification or be a qualified midwife. This thorough teacher training covers both pre and post natal and is grounded in sound physiology and anatomy as well as the more subtle aspects of yoga, the aim of which is to offer guidance towards a woman’s very special journey of pregnancy into motherhood. Our goal is to offer support and guidance to our student teachers so they are fully equipped with the knowledge and expertise to deliver safe, effective and uplifting classes and one to ones. This is achieved via a combination of appropriate asana, pranayama, mudra and visualisations. We also honour the Shakti (female) energetics that resides in all women and allows such an amazing event: (conception, pregnancy and birth) to occur. In addition, we will discuss and study the fourth trimester, otherwise known as the post-natal period, in great depth and how yoga and methods developed from Sally’s’ knowledge of Pilates and gentle exercise rehabilitation, can assist a mothers' post-natal recovery.

TOPICS COVERED • Yoga related movements for all the trimesters to stretch and strengthen the physical body and help alleviate common conditions of pregnancy. • Appropriate relaxation, pranayama, visualizations and meditation. • Working with an exercise ball or chair for both pregnancy and in preparation for labour • The spiritual aspects of pregnancy and birth. • Positions for Optimal Foetal Positioning • Mula Bandha - the importance of a healthy pelvic floor and the correct alignment of the pelvis during pregnancy and the post-natal period. • Birth and labour - description of a `normal’ birth using both anatomical images and a dummy baby and model of the pelvis. • Positions for the three stages of labour • Post-natal support including exercises following Caesarean Section • The spiritual aspects of pregnancy and birth

VENUE For this course we are very pleased to be heading back to The Dru Yoga Centre.
