Postpartum Yoga Teacher Training
October 20–22, 2017
Training taught by Lara Kohn Thompson and Beth Donnelly Cabán
Personal Care, Adjustments, and Restrengthening. Emphasis is often placed on the process of labor and delivery, while little attention is given to the early postpartum period—a crucial and powerful time for a woman’s recovery, well-being, and vitality.
In this training we will address aspects of the physical and emotional recovery and recuperation from childbirth. Learn tools you can use with women in the early weeks and months postpartum to support their healing and prevent injury. You will learn to guide your students through a gentle and safe asana practice, as well as tap into the power of deep relaxation, pranayama, and meditation.
We will gather tools from Therapeutic Yoga and include practical exercises and age-old techniques to assist women in recovering their core strength, rehabilitating and toning those areas the most directly affected by pregnancy and childbirth: the pelvic floor and abdomen.
Learn ways to help women transition smoothly from their prenatal practice into the postpartum phase, and discuss ways to integrate those methods into women’s daily life and practice with a young child (or children).
