Postpartum Yoga Teacher Training Online
October 23, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - November 1, 2020 @ 3:00 pm
October 23 – November 1, 2020
with Lara Kohn Thompson and Beth Donnelly Cabán
Emphasis is often placed on the process of labor and delivery, while little attention is given to the early postpartum period—a crucial and powerful time for a woman’s recovery, well-being, and vitality.
In this training we will address aspects of the physical and emotional recovery and recuperation from childbirth. Learn tools you can use with women in the early weeks and months postpartum to support their healing and prevent injury. You will learn to guide your students through a gentle and safe asana practice, as well as tap into the power of deep relaxation, pranayama, and meditation.
We will gather tools from Therapeutic Yoga and include practical exercises and age-old techniques to assist women in recovering their core strength, rehabilitating and toning those areas the most directly affected by pregnancy and childbirth: the pelvic floor and abdomen.
Learn ways to help women transition smoothly from their prenatal practice into the postpartum phase, and discuss ways to integrate those methods into women’s daily life and practice with a young child (or children).
Please be aware that you must have regular access to the Internet to participate in this online training. You must be able to run Zoom on your computer, and also have an active e-mail account for delivery of course materials.
