Pregnancy Yoga for Yoga Teachers

A course for yoga teachers who’d like to improve or extend their own classes. From a midwife’s perspective participants learn how to assist, relieve and support women during  pregnancy and birth. The basic course takes three days. An intensive seminar can also be given over three 3-day-classes or four weekends.

The training can be adapted to midwives with basic yoga knowledge.

Yoga has been practiced during pregnancy for thousands of years. It can help strengthen a woman’s body during this phase and improve both her well-being and her baby’s. Based on Jutta’s extensive experience as a midwife and yoga teacher Jutta Wohlrab this course is focussed on the special issues and needs of pregnant women, whose bodies change profoundly and continually.

The course
