Embodied Yoga for Women

A therapeutic application of yoga for pregnant & postpartum women


Embodied Yoga for Women ~ Pre & Postnatal Training explores the intuitive connection of a woman with her body during pregnancy, birth & beyond.

In our experience as yoga therapists, teachers & mothers we strongly advocate for yoga as a therapeutic practice, catering to the needs of the individual. This is what sets our training apart from other pregnancy & postpartum courses. This training is designed to help women to connect with their bodies and to feel empowered on their journey.

By giving women the tools to listen to the messages of their body, through connected, intuitive practices, we can adapt our programs specific to their needs.

Our approach to pregnancy & postpartum goes beyond typical Western yoga practices and applies multi-dimensional tools in preparation for motherhood.

This training is designed to help you work one-on-one and in intimate groups with women, catering to the individual needs of your clients & students.
