This includes knowing when to suggest that the student consult a health care professional regarding pregnancy issues. Gain an understanding of psychological considerations during pregnancy and how to differentiate between high-risk and non-high-risk pregnancy.

The training includes yoga techniques specialized to the needs of the pregnant person. Further this training includes practice and teaching skills for trimester-specific yoga techniques. Some of these techniques are: alignment for the expectant parent, appropriate yoga techniques for each trimester, how to practice yoga techniques safely, and relaxation/stress management techniques.

You will learn how to design lesson plans for the beginning and/or advanced student during each trimester.

Topics of consideration are: an overview of what is normal anatomy and physiology during pregnancy; how organs function during pregnancy; overview of the potential complications; including miscarriage, premature labor, hypertension and pre-eclampsia.

Traditional yoga philosophy as it may apply to lifestyle and well-being during pregnancy is also included in this program.
