This two and a half day training shows certified Prenatal Yoga teachers how to help students prepare for labor and delivery using many of the techniques and philosophies of Hatha Yoga. A comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and the physiological process will ground teachers in the dynamics of labor. Learn how positions and movement, breath and vocalization, touch and massage, relaxation, visualization, and meditation can ease labor and delivery and be effective in coping with pain. Teachers may also use this knowledge to help partners prepare to support laboring women. Teachers will be ready to facilitate a labor preparation workshop for expectant couples/partners and incorporate labor preparation into Prenatal Yoga classes. The training offers a wonderful way for teachers to enrich and expand their offerings to prenatal students as they reach the later weeks of pregnancy. Additional independent study requirements are needed for certification.
