Baby + Me Yoga Teacher Training

 

Trauma-Sensitive Baby + Me Yoga Training

Are you interested in empowering parents during this special time of incredible transformation?

Join this empowering, progressive, trauma-informed Baby + Me Yoga Teacher Training! Yoga Alliance Certified (40h YACEP). You do not need to be a yoga instructor to join, as it is accessible to all – doulas, moms, and others who wish to support new and new again parents and babes.

 

What is Baby + Me Yoga?

We explore various ways to offer support to new (and new again) parents, physically + emotionally, within our scope as yoga instructors. This is a very special time for parents and babies to bond, impacting their relationship and the child’s development. Many new parents will experience various challenges. Offering a supportive and empowering community allows parents to connect with each other, nurture themselves, and to be more fully present for their child(ren).

We explore further support and resources, and gain a thorough understanding of post-natal anatomy and physiology with expert knowledge shared by Cheryl Leia – Pelvic Health Physiotherapist (B. Sc., P.T., MCPA).
