Join this empowering, progressive, trauma-informed Baby + Me Yoga Teacher Training! Yoga Alliance Certified (30h 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 will 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).
