I'll be speaking about The Postnatal Body: Important Things To Know For Optimal Recovery.
We will discuss issues like what to look out for after having a baby, plus safe & simple things you can do to start your journey to recovery and physical fitness. This is for both parents, taking into consideration the type of birth had, as well as for the adoptive parent!
This important course is designed for anyone who works with the Prenatal and Postnatal population, including yoga teachers, fitness instructors, doulas and other health professionals as well as parents-to-be.
We will look at practices for each stage including support for fertility, partner yoga for pregnancy and labour, postpartum recovery and parent/baby yoga. Resources will also be provided in the event of pregnancy loss.
Topics include pelvic floor issues, diastasis recti & scar care and teaching to online students.
This is a fun and comprehensive weekend training program. My goal is for students to understand the pre and postnatal body and feel confident modifying their own practice to suit their individual needs and goals.
As instructors, you will feel more capable and confident, your classes will be more accessible and welcoming, and make you stand out as a skilled yoga teacher!
Here's what previous students have said about the course:
"This was beyond my expectation!"
"Melissa is very informed on pelvic floor and I really appreciated her knowledge AND experience"
"I loved the content, the stories, the group, the practice. I wish we had more time!"
