Prenatal Yoga Workshop
When: Friday, September 20th
Serving and supporting the prenatal community is an area many professionals are interested in but few feel confident in doing. Expectant mothers are often unsure how to modify their regular practice to accommodate their evolving body.
This workshop is for teachers, expectant mothers, doulas and midwives. This workshop will provide the tools to understand what areas of the prenatal body need consideration in order to provide safe and effective practices for yourself, students and/or clients.
In this workshop you will learn:
• Fundamental anatomy and physiology of the pregnant body including hormonal, spinal and pelvic changes.
• About the pelvis, pelvic floor & core and their essential role in prenatal movement and pelvic health.
• About diastasis recti and how certain poses can cause further abdominal damage and which ones are safe to do.
• Breathing techniques for pregnancy.
• Common contraindications associated with pregnancy.
• Common conditions associated with pregnancy.
• Accessible yoga for prenatal students based on common conditions and contraindications.
• How to put it all together.
