“By dismantling the culture of fear that surrounds the birthing process we can positively affect entire families. Respecting the process and allowing women to labor on their own terms elevates the roles of the laboring mother and her partner to active participants. Participating in the process is the difference between trauma and empowerment - birth is not something that happens to us, it is something we do. It is time to take back the birth experience, to bring back the Goddess.” -RjM
Join your Love in Motion friends in Costa Rica this spring for an intensive training and yoga retreat!
Rebecca and Kath are delivering a comprehensive, multidimensional prenatal yoga teacher training inspired by our own individual work in the community and our years of background within the yoga tradition. We have combined the knowledge base and skill sets of of our individual work as a doula and a women's health physical therapist to craft an immersive experience where we become more than teachers of a modified prenatal yoga practice - we become ambassadors of empowerment and agents of change.
Along with female anatomy, the physiology of pregnancy and the act of labor we will look deeply into the spiritual aspects of the entire process from 1st - 3rd trimester and the transition into motherhood. This training has been years in the making and we are so beyond ecstatic to share in this sacred work with our beautiful community.
During this 60+ hour training we will cover the following items and SO much more:
Anatomy of the female pelvis
Anatomical changes during pregnancy
Pelvic floor function/structure and integration during 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimesters
Prenatal/Postpartum strength and exercise
The birth process and its stages
Yoga sequencing for all the stages of pregnancy
Breath exercises, meditation and kundalini kriyas
Adaptive practices for pregnant women with special needs
