Pregnancy is a mind- and body-altering life stage. The pregnant body is ever changing, and a prenatal practitioner’s needs change along with it. This fluctuation can be gratifying, but it also can be disorienting because prenatal practitioners often feel disconnected from their pre-pregnancy bodies, and uneasy with group classes that do not instruct on prenatal variations and modifications.
This two-hour workshop will empower prenatal practitioners of Yogahour and other form/flow styles to maintain a safe, strong practice throughout pregnancy, and to use the practice as a guide on the journey from pregnancy to birth to parenthood. The tools the workshop will provide will empower practitioners to stay in their group classes and thus to stay connected to their yoga community. It takes a village to support pregnancy and raise children—this workshop aims to allow prenatal practitioners to remain in their villages.
This workshop is also appropriate for yoga teachers, as it will provide technology instructors can use to teach a prenatal practitioner alongside other students in a group setting.
Workshop participants will be able to:
• Understand the basics of prenatal anatomy and how to make space for baby in practice;
• Confidently take (or, for teachers, lead) any all-levels group Yogahour or form/flow class throughout the stages of pregnancy;
• Identify poses that are safe for pregnant practitioners and vary or modify poses when necessary to maintain a safe, strong practice; and
• Use a yoga practice to help prepare the mind and body for a positive birth experience.
*Space limited to 20 yogis*
