Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Earn 20 Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance

Yin Yoga is a reflective mind/body practice that targets the connective tissue, joints, meridians (energy channels) and organs of the body. This practice provides an opportunity for a deeper release and transformation of energetic congestion in the body (as a result of held emotions, habitual thought patterns, stress and life experiences).  This training provides a comprehensive understanding of the yin yoga format; its effects on subtle anatomy, how to teach and sequence the basic yin poses and how to assist students in finding an appropriate level of safe practice.

Adapting Asana for Prenatal Yoga Students™

Earn 5 Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance

Yoga teachers frequently experience a significant information gap when it comes to guiding pregnant women in regular classes. If you teach yoga to the general population, you need a basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy to provide safe and confident instruction. While many 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings offer a unit on prenatal yoga, it typically does not cover the most crucial information that yoga teachers need to guide pregnant women safely. This workshop dispels many common assumptions and misconceptions held by yoga teachers and provides a much clearer understanding of the needs of pregnant women in every trimester and what to do when they attend regular yoga classes. 

This curriculum was created by Kelly Devi in 2009 to address numerous questions and requests from yoga teachers wanting more background and guidance on this topic. This workshop is designed specifically for yoga teachers who are not prenatal yoga teachers. Completion of this workshop does not qualify you as a prenatal yoga teacher.


WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID:

“My 200 hour training touched on modifying for prenatal students, but I was never completely confident when a pregnant student came to class. This workshop provided so much insight, not only about modifying poses, but about what questions to ask and what poses to avoid. I wish I had taken this workshop years ago!" ~Debbie

"I not only learned more than I expected, I gained a deeper awareness and ability to modify for pregnancy. As a yoga teacher, the first priority should be to cause no harm. Completely recommend this workshop to all yoga teachers". ~Tina

Thank you again for all the experience you helped me gain. I just graduated from nursing school and now applying to labor and delivery positions! I’m so thankful for the experience of supporting a birth with you, and to observe your lactation and childbirth classes! Not only did it change my life it made me absolutely sure I am on the right path.

“My experience in the Yoga for Labor and Delivery Teacher Training was a very positive one. I feel this certification will also help me in being a better prenatal yoga instructor. I have much more understanding of what an expectant mother and partner experience in birth. Kelly is an exceptional teacher, and I am so happy that she shared her vast knowledge and experience with our class”.  ~ Elizabeth
