Our course is divided into 5 sections: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimesters, the
birth itself, and the post natal period. We will work through
theoretical and practical insights in how to help both mum and baby
during each and when certain practices ought to be avoided and why.
This will include:
– Preparing the class. What you need to know before and how to set up.
– Getting to know your mums. How to understand individual and groups
needs and expectations, and understanding common questions.
– Anatomy. What changes, where, when, and how.
– Nervous Systems. Both the sympathetic and parasympathetic.
– Asanas. Positions to promote healthy alignments, strength and
flexibility, according to the changes in the body, as well as supporting
– Breath. As a diagnostic tool and also to encourage support.
– Pranayama: Dirga, Ujjayi, Bhramari, Kapalabhatti, and Nadi Shodana
– Movement and sequencing. Working with both energy flow and physical needs.
– Bandhas. In particular working with and for the pelvic floor.
– Visualizations and meditation. To help mums gain a deeper
understanding of where they are at, promote peace and health, and
maintain these, no matter how plans and expectations are challenged
during the trimesters, birth, and post-natal period.
– Yoga props and assistance. How to make the most of these.
