Are you a certified yoga teacher looking to expand your skill set? Do you love to provide a nurturing space of loving self care for women? Ready to upgrade your Yoga Alliance or Yoga Australia accreditation? Or are you a doula or mum-to-be who would love to deepen your understanding of yogic practice through a beautiful, nourishing retreat experience?
There is nothing as powerful as a group of women coming together to support one another. The primal journey of birthing our babies is a pivotal moment in a woman's life, so spending this time together should not be underestimated in its power for us to ‘hold space’ in our minds and heartsfor birthing.
TEACHING PREGNANCY YOGA provides just this precious opportunity and is a great addition to your skill set as a yoga teacher or doula, as well as a great relaxation if you are an expecting mother.
Yoga has proven to be a safe and effective practice during pregnancy. It has a whole variety of positive effects on the mother’s body, including developing strength, maintaining fitness and reducing symptoms of pregnancy such as muscle aches, swelling, sciatica, cramps, and fatigue. But even more so, yoga has demonstrated a positive impact on mother's and baby's mind, inducing a sense of inner peace and wellbeing. Join us to learn how to safely practice yoga asana in pregnancy and how to adapt your yoga classes for pregnant women.
