Prenatal Yoga Advanced Teaching Concepts: Module Two

Self-Paced Learning with Live Support

ChildLight’s 85-Hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training prepares trainees to guide yoga students through the new parenthood year, from conception through postpartum. Prenatal yoga celebrates the parent and baby connection and the beauty and power of a person’s changing body. We cover best practices for safety, sequencing and teaching techniques for prenatal and postnatal yoga.

As a physical practice, yoga during pregnancy supports strength, endurance, and flexibility. Many expecting people find that regular practice improves circulation, combats fatigue, and reduces tension and stiffness in muscles and joints. As a mental discipline, yoga cultivates focus and emotional stability. Breathing exercises during prenatal yoga help parents relax deeply and connect with baby. ChildLight’s well-rounded training addresses the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga for pregnancy as well as important background information on health, anatomy, nutrition, Ayurveda and more.
