Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training


About the training:

The Sacred Journey to Motherhood™ is a prenatal yoga system evolved to help mamas develop strength, self awareness, and a calm mind to provide the most comfortable pregnancy possible.  This system weaves the ancient arts of yoga with modern science and therapeutic practices.  You will  learn how to teach yogic pranayama breathing techniques, yoga postures for pregnancy, basic sanskrit mantras and meditations.   You will also learn how to alleviate some common physical discomforts with modern muscle rolling techniques using therapy balls and foam rollers.  We will explore the use of social media to help mamas connect and build community, a piece that is often missing in our modern lives.   As a teacher of this holistic system, you will assist women to flourish in pregnancy and beyond.

What you will learn:

  • Ways to help pregnant mamas connect
  • Pranayama practices for pregnancy and childbirth
  • Yoga postures and modifications for various stages of pregnancy
  • Anatomy of Pregnancy: the breath, the spine, the pelvis, and the womb
  • Meditations and mantras to support  a healthy pregnancy
