Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training
May 11–14 and 18–20, 2018
Taught by Beth Donnelly Cabán and Lara Kohn Thompson
An in-depth review of the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, labor, and birth lays the foundation for teachers’ understanding of the myriad benefits of Hatha Yoga for pregnancy. They will gain extensive experience with asanas well suited to pregnant women and a thorough acquaintance with contraindications during pregnancy. The training will sensitize teachers to the profound physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual transitions of pregnancy and birth and demonstrate how such techniques as chanting, pranayama, deep relaxation, and meditation can be effective ways of coping with these changes.
Discussions of the energy anatomy of pregnancy and birth will deepen teachers’ knowledge of the Integral Yoga prenatal practice.
Integral Yoga Prenatal Teacher certification includes teaching a practicum. Students may schedule their practicum from May 21 to June 8, 2018.
