About Hersha Yoga
Hersha has created her own set of trainings based on student demand and encouragement from her teachers and mentors. Her trainings and courses are a result of her 17+ years of teaching yoga and 10+ years training yoga teachers. Hersha Yoga’s approach in all her trainings is to educate teachers to be inclusive, accessible, able to adapt to all abilities and encourage a positive body image. All people no matter their age or ability can have equal benefits to the practice of yoga.
About the Accessible Prenatal Training
Pregnancy is an exciting and often happy time in a woman’s life. It symbolises a person’s future and legacy. The process of change, transformation and birth, while exciting, can bring up feelings of uncertainty and for some women it can equally be a frightening experience. Hersha Yoga's Accessible Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training is an effective course that will train you to be a knowledgable prenatal yoga instructor capable of adapting your class to suit all abilities across all trimesters. Graduates will be able to create a complete integrative yoga class that is classical, dynamic or adaptive. In addition, students will be competent in teaching a workshop to prepare students for labour, as well as postnatal rehabilitation.
The training covers the larger education of yoga to include yoga philosophy and lifestyle, and Anatomy & Physiology specific to pregnancy and future parenthood. Hersha Yoga is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School and graduates will be able to apply for registration as a Registered Prenatal Yoga Instructor (RPYS).
The training is a combination of LIVE + ONLINE training, to get your 85 hours required for accreditation. The curriculum is as follows:
Learn Prenatal Yoga theory & techniques
