At the beginning of the module, participants are encouraged to examine their own strengths and weaknesses and to develop a personal set of goals regarding the specialty of teaching pregnancy and postnatal recovery yoga.
There is a crying need for pregnancy and postnatal recovery yoga classes. We aim to set out basic guidelines for setting up and running pregnancy classes and classes for babies and mums.
Lots of expecting mums are referred to by their midwives and doctors and during their yoga sessions they have the opportunity to develop a profound bond with their unborn child.
As well as enhancing the vitality, mobility, general health, and emotional wellbeing of the expectant mother, pregnancy yoga also provides a valuable quiet space in which to develop their relationship with the baby inside.
Once those babies are born, we owe it to them and their mothers to give them the chance to continue to develop that bond through yoga, promoting postnatal wellbeing for mother and child.
It is a special kind of work, and we need more teachers who are able to run these kinds of classes.
An important aspect of the role of the yoga teacher in both pre and postnatal work is to mother the mother. For both the expectant and the new mother, her yoga class can be a time to rest in the assurance that she is in safe hands, and that the experience and training of the teacher can allow her to enjoy the sense of being cared for, understood, supported, and encouraged in her role as mother.
