Basic Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training
This 30-hour training is designed for yoga teachers interested in learning how to help pregnant women enhance their experience during pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. Students will learn the anatomy and physiology of the growing fetus and how this produces changes in the mother’s body during each trimester. Topics covered include fetal development, physiological and hormonal changes in the mother’s body, as well as possible body responses to these changes. Appropriate asana, assisting, pranayama, sounding and meditation will be covered for each trimester.
Each day begins with a prenatal yoga class during which participants wear “pregnant bellies” for each trimester to simulate the experience of moving in a prenatal body. Class will be followed by theory, practical application, and practice teaching.
You will leave confident about leading and sequencing a prenatal yoga class including language, visualization, and hands-on assisting. In addition, the course will provide tips for labor and birth, partner prenatal yoga, and marketing oneself.

The Universe inside the Body of the Yogi: A Journey into the Chakras, Granthis, and Nadis
Ancient texts of Hatha Yoga state that inside the body of the yogi are mountains, valleys, oceans, and rivers; the moon and stars move in that inner space.
When practice took ancient seekers deep inside, they encountered an amazing world beyond rational thought. They used symbols to map this inner journey and, over time, those symbols became the esoteric Chakras, Granthis, and Nadis of medieval Hatha Yoga.
Come and see what you find when you shine the light of Kriya, Asana, Pranayama, Bandha, and Mudra into your inner world and look closely through the eyes of meditation. Come and practice as the ancient yogis did, using Hatha Yoga rituals to remove the obstacles to inner experience. Instructor: Yoganand Michael Carroll, E-RYT 500, IAYT
