Poppy Perinatal Yoga Training
The level 1 Poppy Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training comes in two forms — a 3-day training and 5-day training* (40-hour training — 35 hours of contact time, plus 5 hours of coursework).
Both trainings equip yoga teachers, birth-workers, doulas and pregnant and postpartum people with the tools to navigate through the life-changing events of pregnancy, birth and post-birth with more support, strength and confidence.
The yoga practices within the Poppy Perinatal Yoga style are designed to help people:
1) balance and align the body and emotions
2) skillfully soften and relax within intensity
3) increase stamina and endurance for the realities of labor, childbirth and postpartum recovery
The pranayama and asana practices meet you and/or your students where you’re at and accommodate your/their needs during pregnancy and post-birth — whether that's a slow, gentle practice or a moderate to more athletic practice. The Poppy Perinatal approach is Forrest Yoga Inspired and incorporates specialised alignment and core exercises designed for supporting prenatal and postnatal people.
All trainees receive a comprehensive manual, daily meditation and breath-work exercises, prenatal and postnatal yoga classes, hands-on assists workshops (even in the online format), sequencing exercises and tools for skilfully supporting birth-givers through pregnancy and postpartum.
The 5-day yoga training also includes: additional asana practices and meditations, more detailed information on specific prenatal and postnatal conditions such as sequencing for post caesarean surgery, diastasis recti etc, teaching practicum, feedback on teaching.
Upon completion of either the 3-day or 5-day perinatal training, graduates are equipped and ready to support birth-givers through pregnancy and postpartum.
Who Can Attend:
The training is open to yoga teachers/professionals, aspiring teachers, birthworkers, or anyone who is experiencing pelvic floor disfunction. You do not have to be a yoga teacher.
