Adapting Asana for Moms-to-Be

Yoga teachers often experience a significant information gap when it comes to guiding pregnant women in regular classes. If you teach yoga to the general population, you need a basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy to provide safe and confident instruction. This workshop, offered under BirthDevi Maternity Services, LLC, is designed to help yoga teachers (and trainees) to become more familiar with the basics of pregnancy and the unique needs of pregnant women in every trimester.

This workshop is a continuing education opportunity for yoga teachers who want more information for guiding pregnant women who attend regular classes.

  • Yoga teacher trainees


  • Male yoga teachers are welcome and encouraged to attend!
