Tomako..

I would like to wholeheartedly recommend the Prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher training through the AURA school. I completed my certification in April and am currently teaching 3 prenatal classes per week with an average of 5-6 students per class. Jane was my online teacher and I found her to be very supportive and extremely positive. If you truly think this is an area that you are interested in, go for it! If you would like any further information, please contact me anytime.

About how many hours does it take to complete the Prenatal Yoga teacher course? Is this Yoga teacher course completely by correspondence?

So the Prenatal course is completely digital? No postage, customs, or other fees, attached? Are there any extra fees?

Yes, you are correct about the cost of the downloadable Prenatal yoga E-course. One flat fee. There are no shipping, handling, customs, import taxes, or hidden fees. This applies to all e-Courses.

Namaskar Everyone,

The Prenatal / Postnatal Yoga teacher course, written by Jane, was our first downloadable course. We have continued to develop more new Yoga courses, and we will be developing many more courses to enhance the education of Yoga teachers and serious Yoga practitioners.

Shanti,

Paul

Hi Fellow Yoginis!

The Aura prenatal yoga teacher course is great. To begin, yoga is beneficial to your body in that it tones and strengthens your body and can teach you breath control and helpful meditations. Yoga can also help you stay calm and joyous when you are feeling dizzy, flustered, or even somewhat depressed. Yoga may even help you stay calm during the birthing process if you are practiced at its breathing techniques and meditations. There are also several specific sequences of moves that relieve many of the physical annoyances associated with pregnancy, such as nausea or constipation. Prenatal Yoga will also strengthen your body for the process of birth.The Prenatal yoga teacher training course from Aura will share with you positions that will specifically strengthen and control muscles you need for bearing down. After birth you may even get more enjoyment from your little baby than other moms in a similar situation since you will be more rested and fit and better able to cope, physically and emotionally, with the demands of a newborn. Yoga will help you to listen to your body and know when you need to take a break before, during, and after birth, and may also strengthen your intuition which may be valuable in the birthing process (and after) if there are any difficulties. Yogic deep breathing will help make more room for baby in your body as the chest is regularly expanded and it will assist you in getting more air yourself. Yogic breathing is very important to practice all throughout pregnancy so that it is second nature; you want to be able to slip into deep breath control automatically during the birthing process.Best wishes to you, your yoga students, and your babies.

Prenatal Yoga For A Healthier Birthing Process

By Gunjan Massey

"Congratulations!!!!! You are going to be a mommy soon." What an immense joy I had when heard those words. My brain started racing with anticipation and anxiety. All good food habits and exercise regimes started popping in my head. And then I thought of Yoga. Can yoga help me through all these months? Is there any prenatal yoga posture that can enhance the healthy development of my baby?

We desire to stay in shape even when we are grumpy, nauseated and bloated, seeking ways to accomplish our objective, while keeping the little caterpillar safe in our wombs. We may exercise at the gymnasium or swim in the pool, yet with precautions and feasible posture guidelines, prenatal yoga prepares you for the birth process, in addition to keeping in shape. It has been observed that expecting mothers who had given a shot at prenatal yoga, give birth to healthy and well-developed babies, who in their later years grow up to be well-adjusted human beings.

In the first trimester, inverted yogic postures like Cow pose (Gomukhasana) and Cat pose (Bidalasana) aids in strengthening the abdominal muscle. Meanwhile, Child pose (Balasana) helps in toning the muscles of chest and pelvis for easy childbirth and feeding.

In the second trimester for making birthing easier, hip joints and muscles must be more flexible. Yoga positions like Ardha Chandrasana, Pigeon, Baddha Konasana Warrior II and Triangle, will improve flexibility and consequently easier birth process. In the third trimester practice the birthing breath (deep breathing), take deep breaths through the nose and exhale through the mouth.

During these nine months the body produces relaxin that intends to soften bones and ligaments to accommodate the growing baby. Hence, you're body is vulnerable to wear and tear. Therefore, avoid extreme yogic positions, and if necessary discontinue.
