Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training
Prenatal Teacher Training with BirthDevi Maternity Services will fully prepare you to confidently teach a safe, mindful and beneficial prenatal yoga class. You will learn about the physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy, when modifications are necessary, and how the prenatal yoga practice can help to manage some of the discomforts experienced during each trimester. You will also gain some basic familiarity with the labor process and ways to prepare expecting mothers physically and mentally for the challenges of labor utilizing yogic techniques and philosophy.
