30h Full-Spectrum Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with Sarah Scharf

The prenatal time is about letting go of what was and embracing the body’s new changes. Yoga and meditation practices can be more than tools, they can be allies. The group of women we meet in yoga classes and the importance of having a safe place to share our experiences can be the support needed through the journey of pregnancy and motherhood.

Taking care of the mother’s health has a direct effect on the entire family and ultimately the community of our world. We will learn approaches to asana, as well as breathing and relaxation techniques, that give women tools for labour as well as everyday life. Respect for the physiological and anatomical changes of pregnancy are the basis for this way of practicing and teaching yoga.

Jai Maa!

You will learn

  • how to create a nurturing and honest circle of women in group classes
  • how to educate without increasing fear
  • how to give attention to each individual
  • how to teach beginner students, mixed levels and different stages of pregnancy in one group is a reality of group classes

  • how to handle many conditions that are common in pregnancy (so that you are familiar with what your students are going through)

In this training, we will discuss the full spectrum of pregnancy, which includes loss and infertility. The ethics of teaching include supporting each mother’s experience with respect and sensitivity, no matter if their approach to birth is different from your own. Creating a circle that is inclusive and providing an emotional support network for sharing resources and knowledge is the deeper goal of this style of teaching.

We aim to understand the physical and emotional shifts taking place during all four trimesters, from conception through lactation. You will learn how yoga poses affect the baby’s position and how to offer helpful yoga asana for many common aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Common attitudes and fears related to pregnancy will be discussed with an emphasis on framing pregnancy as a healthy part of life and not an illness. Practical knowledge of how to include modifications for all stages of pregnancy in open group yoga classes is an important skill we will work on. You will learn how to help guide yoga students with any level of experience through pregnancy.

Each trainee will receive a PDF course manual and a Pre & Post-natal practice DVD.
