20-Hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

with Laura Wood

Friday, June 7- Sunday, June 9, 2024
This 20 hour training is for yoga teachers and movement professionals looking to deepen their knowledge of the physiological and psychological changes that occur during pregnancy. You’ll learn how to implement an evidence based and therapeutic approach to movement to support pregnant people through one of life’s biggest transitions.
After completing this training, you’ll feel comfortable and excited to work with students at all stages of pregnancy and have the skills to help pregnant people build confidence in themselves and manage fear and stress.

In this training we’ll look at:

  • Anatomy and biomechanics related to pregnancy and birth
  • Up to date research on prenatal exercise guidelines
  • Common postural patterns and how to use movement to reduce strain and restriction
  • Managing and preventing common pregnancy aches and pains using yoga, mobility and strength based exercises
  • Special considerations for the core and pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy and birth (minimizing effects of Diastasis Recti and Pelvic Floor Symptoms)
  • Common pregnancy issues (Pubic Symphsis, SI and Sciatic discomfort, etc) and how to modify and use props to support students
  • How to use breathwork and movement to support the para-sympathetic nervous system and help students develop a greater sense of trust and confidence in themselves
  • How to modify common yoga poses for students who may be in non-prenatal specific classes
  • The birthing process and how to use movement as a way to prepare students physically and emotionally for birth
  • Sequencing and cueing for safe, effective and inviting classes

Laura Wood has 20 years of experience as a prenatal and postnatal yoga/pilates teacher and trained doula and shares her deep understanding of pregnancy and birth to help you feel confident working with and creating movement classes that meet the needs of pregnant students.
