Taught over 4 days (Thursday 21 - Sunday 24 February):

Pregnant women worldwide are flocking to yoga classes for it's reputation as a safe and effective 'exercise'. As yoga teachers we know it is so much more. The pregnant goddess can drink from this vast ocean of yogic wisdom to gain greater strength, clarity and vitality that surely has the power to change the world - one baby at a time.

Assisting women to have an empowered experience of pregnancy and birth is one of the greatest rewards of teaching prenatal yoga. As modern women, many of us have forgotten our inherent birthing wisdom. Yoga skillfully reminds us that our body is made for this and assists us to feel at ease in the sacred flow of life.

 Through this 4 day training you will gain confidence in supporting pregnant women at all levels on this great rite of passage into motherhood including birthing wisdom (Active Birth) and postnatal yoga options.

This course is taught by Vanessa Rudge (E-RYT500) of Being Yoga. On completion you will receive a certificate of attendance and be eligible for Yoga Australia Continuing Education Points.

Vanessa showed us how to find a balance between strength and softness, and inspired me not to be 'afraid' of pregnant women coming to class! Every teacher training or yoga class I have been to with Being Yoga has been top quality, with Vanessa and Michael and all their team sharing their experience and wisdom with generosity and integrity."Kathleen Buckley.
