There are many contraindications to certain poses, new orthopedic challenges to be aware of, and special emotional considerations. This class will break down the most important parts of branching into prenatal yoga practice. Upon completion, participants will be able to create and teach a prenatal yoga class with confidence. No matter your practice setting—gym, studio, or private lessons—this course will improve your ability to work with pregnant students.
