Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training
- Level 1- 25 hours
Focusing on the anatomy and physiology of the female
body during pregnancy, you will explore how the changes that affect the body and mind during this time need to be incorporated
into an essential exercise routine to avoid injury, stress and exhaustion.
Beyond modifying Asanas, the goal of this course is to provide the tools
to intelligently adapt anything (from a walk to the grocery store to a challenging inversion) to fit the needs of the pregnant
student. We will focus on understanding the female pelvis and core, the deep changes they go through, and how these
changes affect the body as a whole.
We will also discuss childbirth and how we can help women have a birth experience that is free of trauma and suffering.
It is a fundamental part of the Yoga practice to be present in the moment. Helping women achieve this during pregnancy, labor
and delivery can be both immensely challenging and overwhelmingly gratifying.
LEVEL I – 25 hours
This training will explore ways to help the
pregnant woman work with her body to maintain optimal posture and a healthy lifestyle. It will also explore how to allow the

Reservation:TBA Juliana Secches, RYT, Exercise Physiologist, Childbirth Educator, Doula, and Pre/Post Natal expert, created this very
informative workshop to share her experience. She developed a true fascination for understanding the movements of the
human body from very early in her life. Pregnancy and childbirth were just topics she grew up discussing with her father,
who’s an OB/GYN and apprenticed her into a lot of the work she does today. Juliana is also a new mom to baby Bruno.
