A Self Paced online course for yoga teachers of all styles wanting to upskill their knowledge about pregnancy with the intention of being able to adapt their general classes to welcome in pregnancy students. 200 hour teacher trainings only scratch the surface of yoga, I am sure you agree. There is so much to learn to get you started teaching that typically 200 hour courses out there just cover very basics of pregnancy awareness, if at all! Please note this course is designed as additional learning to a 200 hour yoga teacher training and supports you in guiding pregnant students in your general classes. It does not qualify you as a full pregnancy yoga teacher nor cover curriculum for pregnancy yoga classes/courses. When I was a new teacher I can honestly say that my knowledge of teaching pregnant students was this: no core work, no belly down poses, no deep twists. That mindset was ok, until pregnant people showed up to my general classes. I can't explain the panic. I probably messed the whole class up worrying about every flow, every pose, every breath. With hindsight what I actually did, if we are being honest here, was chat to them at the beginning, tell them to take it easy, rest when needed then I let go, I assumed they would be all good on their own, creating their own evolutions of poses to suit their changing body. Imagine being that pregnant person, hearing cues for cobra, bow, dancer, wheel, arm balances and more and thinking "no way I can do that" I don't know what alternative to do so I'll just sit it out". They would be sitting out half the class! What you will learn in this 10 hour course: pregnancy adaptations of common poses what poses to avoid and why what props to offer and how they can be used in pregnancy how to evolve your teaching for pregnant students how to evolve common vinyasa transitions and sequences when and where to refer out if needed what is happening in the body each trimester
