This training has been designed for all perinatal birth educators including pre and postnatal yoga, pilates and fitness professionals, midwives, doulas and other birth professionals to give a strong skill set for post birth rehab yoga in group and one to one settings.
Postnatal yoga can help recovery from prolapse, leaking, back pain, diastasis and scar recovery scar recovery. Post pregnancy can also be a time when serious problems in later live initiate. We are beautifully placed to make a huge difference to the health and wellbeing of the postnatal community. Parent and baby yoga is wonderful and we can support the post natal recovery period in a joyful way with full family involvement.
This training has been created in a way for you to be in a position to influence the physical and mental wellbeing of new families. Allowing the postnatal community to regain ownership of their new bodies as they never be what they were nor should they be.
I’ve been running programmes like these for years and have seen so many incredible transformations and it is what makes my heart sing. Through this training you can reach the most vulnerable and need of our postnatal community.
What you’ll gain:
- A deep knowledge of the postnatal body

Week 4 - Integration Week - an opportunity to work through homework, ask questions and do addtional reading and practice

Feedback from Amy's Training for Yoga Teachers:
"Amy is a natural presenter, very engaging and has a huge amount of knowledge. I was really enthused by her explanations of the role of our muscles in breathing and how using the muscles correctly strengthened our body."
Margaret Sorah, Yoga Teacher
"This is a really interesting training workshop which combines fascinating anatomy and useful exercises which can be integrated into a class, or applied specifically to someone wanting to understand more about their knee issues. The tutor's depth of understanding and skilful ability to transfer this into practical exercises makes this an outstanding workshop."
