Pregnancy Yoga Teacher training is such a fun course. Even though there is soooo much information to share and the time goes past so quickly, I love, love, love teaching this course.
The best part about this course is that everyone is so enthusiastic about new life - babies seem to inspire people in general but women particularly. This year there are 7 beautiful Yoga Teachers coming together to learn how to teach Pregnant women, couples and the Moms with their babies afterwards. After one weekend of intensive training we are about a quarter of the way through, and have dealt with pre-conception and fertility, and the 3 trimesters of pregnancy.
The following weekend will cover Couples Yoga for Mom-to-be and Partner; Yoga for the Labour and Birth; Post-natal Yoga for the moms; and Moms and Babies Yoga, which incorporates some baby massage. On these weekends we go through the practical aspects of teaching yoga for these stages and after the weekend get-togethers there is time for on-line theory study before the final examination.
