Immerse yourself in the study of yoga for the childbearing year with Jane Austin’s Mama Tree Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training!

Whether or not you have the goal to teach this training is also a fit for you if you work with women in any capacity (doula, midwife, obstetrician + gynecologists, massage therapists, etc.). Also, mamas looking for ways to deepen their own practice will find a lot of benefit in this immersion as will yoga teachers from every discipline.

This Training will include:
• The effects of pregnancy on the body
• The benefits of yoga in pregnancy
• Postures to aid common discomforts
• What poses are contraindicated (what to avoid)
• Appropriate pranayama practices
• Prenatal bonding
• Physiology of childbirth
• Yoga for labor
• Observation of classes
• The effects of racism on infant mortality and the health of the childbearing parent

This training also features guest teachers: Stephanie Forester from Preggo Pilates, Suzannah Neufeld, MFT on prenatal and postpartum psychology, Melylah Botté Smith on the Black Maternal Health Crisis and Katie Louderback on Nutrition.

+++ BONUS Material: Yoga for the early stages of postpartum, postpartum issues, mom and baby yoga, the 4th trimester and infant development.
