Introduction into teaching pregnancy yoga

Gain the confidence to teach pregnant women during your general yoga classes

Taught By Amy Jones, Yoga Coach

Most foundation yoga teacher training courses devote at best a couple of hours on how to adjust a yoga practise to accommodate a pregnant woman. Yet the likelihood is at some point most yoga teachers will probably find that one of their regular students becomes pregnant or a pregnant woman unexpectedly joins the class.

Concern or fear when teaching yoga to a pregnant woman is an all-too-common problem for yoga teachers, especially for newly qualified teachers.

This Yoga Alliance Professionals further developmental workshop, will give you the confidence to integrate a pregnant woman safely and effectively into your general yoga classes, using easy to remember principles of support, soften and space.
