Pre and Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training
Here is training that endeavors to equip women with knowledge and experience of herself so she naturally enters motherhood with thoughts of love, confidence, and trust. Existing patterns of inadequateness are deep in women today and make her prone to exploitation, even by the medics.
The training is aimed at those who wish to empower themselves or others by providing the tools which connect them to their infinite self and the magnificent Mother Power.
The training includes Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan as well as many rituals from Nature based traditions where women assumed their rightful place as healers, teachers and leaders.
The Mother´s Journey is also aimed at those professionals who work with mothers to be, such as obstetricians, midwives, and doulas. It will expand your mindset and give you confidence in relating to your clients differently.
The training is opened to women over 18 years old.
The training will be facilitated in English.
There is a minimum number of 13 participants to guarantee that the training takes place.
Please see the Terms and Conditions.
