Last week I taught my first pregnancy yoga class and it was such a joy. Pregnancy yoga is a specialist area that requires additional training above your initial 200 hour qualification. Yes I had previously read some books and had a knowledge of modifications but whenever a student came up to me before class and told me about their pregnancy I always had a moment where I worried about not being able to guide them enough.
So when I met Clare at Harmonise Training Academy whilst completing my Pilates Instructor training and she told me of the post graduate course in Post and Antenatal training I signed up on the spot.
It was an incredible four day course that taught me so much, not to mention meeting such a lovely group of other teachers on the course (I love the friendships made on teacher trainings, so many kindred spirits). Having not had babies of my own yet was a real eye opener to just how amazing, in context to flexibility and strength, the female body biologically is, in the way it adapts to growing a baby. When educated on this level it became clear that why specialised classes are recommended.
So now gorgeous pregnant Yogis and Pilates students, come see me in class. I confidently know just what to do with you or better still sign up for a pregnancy course.
I photographed the course for the training academy to feature on future website updates and social media and here are some of my favourites. The food pics at the end are from the delicious graduation meal we had at https://www.bo-brighton.com
