Why You Should Do A Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

Have You Ever…

  • Had a pregnant woman walk into your class and your heart started to race because you were unsure how to modify the poses for pregnancy?
  • Wanted to create a Prenatal Yoga Series for expecting Mothers?
  • Are you pregnant yourself and want to learn how to adapt your own practice during this exciting journey?

 

Hi, Carri here. You may be thinking Why is Carri writing this?  Sarah is the Prenatal expert!

The above was me. I used to have the “deer in the headlights” syndrome when a pregnant woman walked into my class.

Oh crap! Doesn’t she know this is a Power Vinyasa class? Doesn’t she know I specialize in Arm Balances and Inversions? Doesn’t she know people come to my class to sweat?

It’s embarrassing to type that out loud, but it’s true. That is, until I finally took a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training a full 10 years after my initial 200 hr YTT!
My advice to you… Don’t be like me! Don’t wait.

For my first decade of teaching I could have been more accessible. I could have had more information, I could have done better, but I don’t like to dwell. I just wanted to chime in and give my personal perspective on why I think it’s important to have a Prenatal YTT in your back pocket even if it’s something you don’t think you’ll specialize in.

I don’t advertise that I’m a Prenatal Yoga teacher. I don’t teach a 3 month or 6 week series, but I could! When a pregnant woman walks into my class, not only do I feel 110% confident that I have the skills and tools to guide her through an awesome class, I have fun doing it.

No more deer in the headlights!
