Taught over 5 days:

Pregnant women worldwide are flocking to yoga classes for it's reputation as a safe and effective 'exercise'. As yoga teachers we know it is so much more. The pregnant goddess can drink from this vast ocean of yogic wisdom to gain greater strength, clarity and vitality that surely has the power to change the world - one baby at a time.

Assisting women to have an empowered experience of pregnancy and birth is one of the greatest rewards of teaching prenatal yoga.
