Two-day Advanced Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training with Sally Parkes BSc in Worthing, West Sussex.

About this training…

This training is for qualified 85hr Pregnancy Yoga Teachers and aims to deepen your existing knowledge so you can broaden your offerings to your post-natal clients. It is a 20hr Advanced Postnatal training presented by Sally and her carefully selected guest speakers. This training focuses on the anatomy and physiology of the postnatal mother directly after giving birth, to the first twelve months that follow, and is particularly helpful for those yoga teachers who would like to offer a more bespoke approach to post-natal care of their clients.

Topics covered:

  • What does ‘being post-natal’ actually mean?
  • Anatomy of the female pelvis including the different types of pelvis.
  •  What happens to the pelvis during a vaginal birth – nutation and counternutation.
  •  What is the hormonal cascade effect that happens during and directly after birth?
  •  Explanation of the different types of C-Section.
  •  Explanation of other interventions such as episiotomy, forceps, vontouse.
  •  What is suturing and when is it required.
  •  Premature birth.
  •  Infant Loss
  •  The effects of lacation on the hormonal and skeletal system
  •  Adaptation of the application of yoga practices in relation to different birth experiences.
  •  The varying stages of being post-natal: coregulation, recovery, rehabilitation, rebuilding.


After this training you will be able to:

  • Improve your teaching skills and feel more confident as a postnatal yoga teacher. 
  • Deliver bespoke small classes and one to one postnatal yoga sessions that cater for the mother who requires extra nurturing.
  • Adapt your existing post-natal classes for those who have experienced a particularly challenging birth of their baby or babies.
