This CPD is being offered in conjunction with Birthlight – the world’s largest Pregnancy Yoga Teacher training organisation.

This is the third time Nadia teaches this workshop for Birthlight which has been very well received by all who have attended.

Yoga is inherently a mindful practice and yet often pregnancy yoga teachers do not communicate the mindfulness or, it is communicated, so subtly that it is neither received nor understood by the pregnant student.

While all experienced yoga teachers understand that mindfulness is implicit in their practice, teachers are often not given the necessary training in how to communicate these skills to their pregnant students.

Yet key mindfulness skills such as acceptance and present moment awareness can literally transform the childbirth experience. Learning to work with Fear and Pain using Mindfulness techniques really empowers pregnant women to embrace the normal birth process.

Pregnancy Yoga teachers can hugely benefit from specialised mindfulness training adapted specifically for the unique challenges of pregnancy and birth.

By learning to teach the key skills of mindfulness and incorporate meditation into their pregnancy yoga context they will pass on a body of knowledge to their mothers with manyfold benefits some of which include:

  • transforming the birthing and mothering experience
  • enabling the mothers to really listen and hear the communications of their own bodies and to develop trust in their maternal instinct
  • reducing mental anxiety during pregnancy and childbirth
  • reducing fear during pregnancy and child-birth
  • enabling a deeper fuller connection with their unborn babies
  • deepening their yoga practice
  • strengthening their inner focus and expand their inner awareness
  • reducing postnatal depression
  • instilling confidence in their mothering

This one day workshop for pregnancy yoga teachers introduces the essential skills of mindfulness and meditation and explores how to incorporate them into your pregnancy yoga teaching and specifically to your teaching of yoga around childbirth and new motherhood.

If you would like to weave this powerful knowledge into your own Pregnancy Yoga Teaching then please come and join me for the next workshop.

All CPD Participants will receive a Birthlight Certificate of Attendance. The day’s training will count towards your organisation’s annual quota of CPD required training points.

This CPD is open to ALL Pregnancy Yoga Teachers and Yoga Teachers undertaking Pregnancy Yoga training.
