This workshop for prenatal and postpartum Yoga teachers will provide an understanding of concepts and terminology related to gender and sexuality, common barriers to care for trans and gender-expansive pregnant and postpartum people, and how prenatal and postpartum Yoga instructors can be more affirming of the diverse identities and experiences of people moving through the childbearing year(s). There will be space to ask clarifying questions, examine assumptions and biases, and explore and practice the integration of gender-expansive teaching.
