Prenatal Teacher Training in San Francisco 2019

Join Sarah Walsh from Drishti Yoga Teacher Training in collaboration with The Pad Studios for a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Fall  2019 in San Francisco.

Curious about how to better assist your prenatal students in class? Interested in creating a space for expecting mothers in your own dedicated Prenatal Yoga class? Perhaps you are pregnant yourself and are looking to deepen your practice during this exciting journey? In this four weekend intensive we will learn how to adapt the practice to better suit expecting mothers in all stages of their pregnancy. Learn how empower these mothers-to-be through breath work, movement, labor & delivery techniques and by cultivating a supportive community.
