About this training…

This training is for previously qualified 85hr Pregnancy Yoga Teachers and aims to deepen your existing knowledge so you can broaden your offerings to your postnatal 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. It is particularly helpful for those yoga teachers who would like to offer a more bespoke approach to postnatal care of their clients.
