Full Description

Yoga offers special gifts to women who are pregnant. The spiritual rewards can only be told by those who have experienced them. But modern clinical trials have also confirmed objective medical benefits of prenatal yoga. This evidence suggests that yoga can ():
• Improve sleep
• Reduce stress and anxiety
• Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
• Decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath
• Decrease the risk of preterm labour, pregnancy-induced hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction — a condition that slows a baby's growth
Other research suggests that any regular physical activity during uncomplicated pregnancy has advantages that outweigh risks. Thirty minutes of exercise daily benefits both the mother and baby. Clinical trials on low-impact yoga taught by qualified teachers concluded that such practice is safe. However, expectant women should get doctor's approval before beginning yoga practice.

Why joining a prenatal yoga teacher course?
To be successful, yoga instructors need to develop trustworthy relationships with their clients. Appropriate teaching skills are a cornerstone of such relations. Teachers who are secure about their abilities gain confidence in the eyes of their clients.
But pregnancy is that special time in the life of a woman. She and her family want the reassurance that they are providing only the best available for the awaited child. You may have read the literature and watched videos about prenatal yoga. But how confident are you that you can handle a real session?

Designing speciality yoga classes involves the knowledge of yoga postures, breathing and relaxation practices, but also many auxiliary disciplines. A responsible yoga teacher combines the ancient and modern understanding of the human being. The doshas, koshas, vayus and chakras blend with anatomy, physiology and psychology. Conception, pregnancy and early-motherhood (postpartum) involve changes in all these dimensions.

Speciality teacher training programs in prenatal yoga focus on the needs of women in these three phases of life. They emphasize a different approach for each of the trimesters of pregnancy. Such course will equip you with the knowledge and experience necessary to establish trusted relationships with clients expecting a child.
