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? 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?
Either way, join us for a joyous, wholesome getaway with seasoned teachers who create a loving space of femininity, self-care and motherhood for all stages of life. This course serves as a nurturing time of self-care for expecting mothers as well as an accredited training for yoga teachers.
This course is also a precious opportunity for doulas and expecting mothers to learn about pregnancy yoga and for those people it is not necessary to do the homework or assignments.
This training is all about supporting pregnant women to reclaim feminine intelligence, trust in themselves and intuition. As the ancient yogic scriptures (Rig Veda) remind us 'Reverence to the Divine in the form of the Female Power (Shakti) that defends the entire world in various manifestations.'
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.
Pregnancy including conception and fertility awareness, guidelines for safe and effective asana, prananyama (breathing techniques), sadhana (conscious spiritual practice), yoga nidra (deep relaxation), chanting and meditation.
