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?
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!
