Kundalini Yoga involves more than just the physical body. It is an awakening of the true nature that exists in all of us. This is a practice that helps you experience being more fully yourself, to experience a more natural unfolding of destiny and to implement inherent gifts and talents without inner obstacles (such as the kleshas). The human has changed more in the last 100 years than in the previous 1000 and is now experiencing a loss of health and a dwindling supply of inner energy to match the outer energy and demands of life. There is stress for resisting this situation where the old layout just won’t work on the new grid. The human must evolve to the next stage or as we like to say move on. Kundalini Yoga was called a well kept secret. The ancients were so wise and very insightful to see what was coming down the pike for the human of today and the future . Kundalini yoga was preserved for these times and well designed for helping you keep up and grow!
Do you feel properly prepared to teach the pregnant student? Have you found yourself nervous or unsure how to guide a pregnant person in class? Do you want to learn more about honoring the needs of pregnant students while maintaining the flow of an open-level class?
This four-hour training will equip participants with knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the pregnant body, specific needs of the pregnant student in an asana class, modifications or substitutions for common poses including vinyasa transitions, and the benefits of yoga during pregnancy. In addition to lecture and conversation, Shelley Jones, mama of two, Ph.D., E-RYT 200, RYT 500, and YACEP, will lead you through a prenatal-appropriate class so as to embody the teachings. Most importantly, participants will leave with a sense of confidence in their ability to support the prenatal student in class.
Led by Shelley Jones of Birth & Beyond Yoga, mama of two, Ph.D., E-RYT 200, RYT 500, and YACEP. Shelley found yoga in 2005 and began teaching in 2009. She considers herself a student first and has extensive and ongoing training in both alignment-based and vinyasa flow yoga, yoga philosophy, meditation, kids’ yoga, and pre- and postnatal yoga. Her most recent training was an 85-hour prenatal certification with Deb Flashenberg and Caprice Abowitt of the Prenatal Yoga Center in New York City. Shelley credits yoga with helping to make her transitions from pregnancy through birth and into motherhood easeful, though not easy. Now she shares the gift of yoga with her kids, while realizing the power of her own personal practice in supporting her as a mother.
This training is designed for those who have graduated from or currently attending yoga teacher training and provides continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance® Registered Teachers.
