Workshops

Prenatal refresher for yoga teachers

Workshop lead by Erin Bidlake

This workshop is intended for:

  • yoga teachers who want to sharpen their knowledge and skills when it comes to working with prenatal students
  • yoga teachers who are occasionally asked to substitute teach a prenatal class or encounter pregnant students in their regular hatha classes but lack confidence in their ability to safely teach prenatal yoga
  • anyone who is interested in learning more about prenatal yoga (doulas, pregnant women, partners of pregnant women)

Topics will include:

  • basic physiology
  • prenatal considerations and contraindications by trimester
  • modifying classical hatha poses for pregnancy
  • identifying poses that are especially useful during pregnancy

The cost of the workshop includes admission to Erin’s 9-10:30am prenatal drop-in class.
Attendance at this drop-in class is optional but recommended.

About your teacher Erin: My first experience with prenatal yoga was in 2008 when I was pregnant with my son, Zack. Although I continued to take other classes, I found myself looking forward to my weekly prenatal yoga class, as I grew to love the community that was created around the shared experience of pregnancy. I completed my prenatal teacher training in 2010, and since then I’ve taught prenatal yoga in a variety of settings, both private and public. Recently I’ve begun to share what I’ve learned with other yoga teachers, by delivering sessions on teaching prenatal yoga in both workshop and teacher training contexts.
