Prenatal Yoga Workshop at Union Yoga

This event has already passed

The Monterey Birth and Wellness Center and Union Yoga presents a Prenatal Yoga Workshop led by Jill Willett on Saturday, March 30, 1pm-3pm. It is open to those who are pregnant, yoga teachers, and student yoga teachers.

This workshop will demystify prenatal yoga by exploring safe practices for students and practitioners. It is meant to educate non-prenatal teachers to feel competent to address the needs of prenatal students. It is also meant to prepare prenatal students to feel confident to walk into any yoga class, modify movements for themselves, and feel that they are keeping themselves and their babies safe. Modifications will be demonstrated and discussed for pranayam, asanas, and props.

Issues to be discussed will include low back pain, hyper mobility, hyper tonicity, diastasis recti, anxiety, and physical discomfort during and after practice ("listening to your body"). Nothing applies to every body the same way.

A practice class will be offered with sequencing ideas for all 3 trimesters. Please sign up on the Union Yoga website. Fee is $35. Scholarships are available - please contact Brett.
