to Jun 10

Module 3: Taking Your Seat ~ Om Births Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training

  • Om Births at Inner Strength (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Find YOUR Teaching style!
This third portion of our Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training is the first of its kind in the Boston region!


In Module 3 we'll expand upon the themes in Modules 1 and 2, and delve even deeper into the methodology of teaching pre and postnatal yoga. This weekend offers numerous opportunities to refine your teaching techniques as well as your overall focus as a yoga teacher in the pre/postnatal field.

Who is this training for?

This module is appropriate for anyone who has taken the prenatal module of the Om Birth teacher training. Taken another prenatal training or have a question? Drop us a line.

The workshop will include sections on:

  • How to “take your seat” as the teacher and create a nurturing and welcoming environment while still maintaining your position as guardian of safety.
     
  • Specifics of the Om Births style and philosophy around pre and postnatal yoga practice and mindfulness throughout the childbearing year and beyond.
     
  • Hand-on adjustments; learn specifics about physically adjusting the pregnant body. Some common do’s and don’ts as well as deepening your understanding of alignment and anatomy. Along with this will be an exploration of using props to enhance rather than just “prop up” certain postures.
     
  • Working with specialized populations - How to sequence for students with specific prenatal challenges such as Pubis Symphysis Dysfunction, or postnatal concerns such as Diastasis recti. We’ll explore more fully the causes of these and other challenges and learn how to prevent and protect against them
     
  • Sequencing for advanced students. Building off our discussion of special cases we’ll discuss and explore teaching more advanced postures such as deeper backbends and inversions to experienced students. Be prepared to have your own understanding of alignment in these postures challenged.
     
  • Yoga Nidra for Pregnancy, Birth and beyond. We’ll cover the impact of relaxation on the nervous system when pregnant and the importance of relaxation during the birth process. We’ll then walk through restorative postures appropriate for pregnancy. How to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and practice the key restorative yoga asanas for Pregnancy, Births and Motherhood.

Cost: $450// Early bird before 8/21 $395

This weekend is designed to fully certify prenatal teachers as Om Births Prenatal Yoga teachers, in the Om Births method and lineage. Completion of all 3 Modules and Practicum will allow students to apply to Yoga Alliance for the RPYT designation. Completion of any of the Om Births training weekends will also qualify you to attend the Om Births teachers retreat (needed every 3 years to maintain certifications) to be held in the Summer of 2018

More than a decade of studies in yoga plus 15 year in early education, and continuous studies with leaders in the field such as Jennifer Harper Cohen, Mayuri Gonzales, Tara Rachel Jones and Abbie Davies had helped shape her methodology. As a young woman, Lara was mentored by the education director of Pine Village Preschool, Jacie Feinberg, and also by Roman Szpond, owner of Inner Strength Studios. She now resides in New York City

Spinning Babies Training for Yoga Teachers and Birth Professionals

SpinningBabies Logo.jpg

Om Births is thrilled to host BACE-NMC, Spinning Babies and Lorenza Holt for a special training in the philosophy and techniques of Gail Tully and Spinning Babies! This workshop is for midwives, childbirth educators, doulas, nurses, nurse practitioners, obstetricians, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, myo-fascial release practitioners, perinatal case managers, community health workers and others who work with birthing women.        

The Three Principles of Spinning Babies are: 

Balance, Gravity and Movement. Learn how to encourage and support pregnant women having more comfortable pregnancies and laboring mothers having easier labors by using the Spinning Babies principles and techniques. 

Spinning Babies promotes better fetal positioning during pregnancy and labor by using techniques that help soften and balance the pelvic ligaments and muscles that support the pregnant uterus and pelvic floor.  We relate pelvic alignment and mobility to an easier and shorter birth. 

Spinning Babies gives your work greater success by teaching you specific techniques. You will learn to know when to do what- and why - to help baby engage, descend and rotate through the pelvis and pelvic floor.  You will practice techniques for when labor stalls due to lack of engagement, a cervical lip or transverse arrest. 

Spinning Babies will teach you about:

  • The anatomy and physiology of the pregnant uterus and the soft tissues that support the pelvic structure
  • Belly Mapping, - a fun and effective way that encourages mothers to connect with how their babies are positioned inside them during the last weeks of pregnancy
  • The effects of an occiput posterior labor
  • Assessing what a stalled labor pattern is telling us 
  • What techniques we can apply to ease labor progress through the three levels of the pelvis
  • How a doula, within her  scope of practice, can use the Spinning Babies principles

Spinning Babies will change the way you think about birth interventions.

Lorenza Holt, Spinning Babies Trainer, and approved birth doula trainer with DONA International comes to this workshop with more than 20 years of experience as a childbirth educator, birth doula, and trainer in a variety of women’s health topics.   She is a native of Guadalajara, Mexico who lives in Boston, Massachusetts. 

This workshop will provide you with 7 hours of DONA International approved continuing education credits.
