Students will learn the anatomy and physiology of the growing fetus and how this produces changes in the mother’s body during each trimester. Topics covered include fetal development, physiological and hormonal changes in the mother’s body as well as possible body responses to these changes. Appropriate asana, assisting, pranayama, sounding and meditation will be covered for each trimester, including after birth. Pregnancy discomforts during each stage will be explored along with ways to use yoga, non-traditional methods and traditional techniques to help alleviate these discomforts. Each day begins with a prenatal yoga class during which participants wear “pregnant bellies” for each trimester to simulate the experience of moving in a prenatal body. Class will be followed by theory, practical application and practice teaching. In addition, the course will provide tips for labor and birth, partner prenatal yoga and marketing oneself. Students will leave confident, qualified and comfortable to teach prenatal yoga. This course provides 35 Yoga Alliance CEUs
