200 Hour Yoga for Pregnancy Teacher Training In Rishikesh – Haridwar, India

Yoga is said to be ideal preparation for labor and birth. It is also an excellent way to get back into shape after birth. In yoga, the body is eased into alignment with the awareness of breath. And performing yoga poses with awareness creates a state of calmness. When a pregnant woman feels inner clarity, her confidence grows. When she feels peaceful, her anxiety concerning the birth process decreases. The mind becomes involved in body movements. This focus allows pregnant women to tune out the distracting forces around her during labor and to respond appropriately to the contractions. yoga world alliance

Yoga provides a way to refine the movements of body. When first performing the poses, lady may feel slightly awkward and stiff. After practicing them over and over again, the body will stretch, adapt and gradually move into alignment. This is invaluable training, for labor is a very physical process. Knowing where you are tight or weak, and working on those areas, will help prepare the body for birth.Hence, Prenatal(Yoga before birth) and Postnatal(Yoga after birth) Yoga helps to adjust the physical demands of labor, birth, and motherhood.


Pregnancy Yoga is divided normally in two stages nowadays - Prenatal Yoga(Yoga before child's birth) and Postnatal Yoga(Yoga after child's birth). But in our Vedic Indian Tradition, it had been divided in 3 stages - Yoga before Pregnancy, during pregnancy and after pregnancy. So, we at Om Yoga under Prenatal Yoga teach it in two stages - Yoga before Pregnancy and during Pregnancy.

Yoga Before Pregnancy(PRENATAL YOGA): This yoga has been given a lot of importance in our Vedic culture. It is seen nowadays, people give birth to child without being fully prepared. Our Vedas bring our attention to these integral questions before deciding to reproduce: 

1. Are both parents fully prepared for the birth of a child?

2. Are both parents physically as well as mentally healthy? 

To have a child, both expecting parents should be internally capable. They must have a clear mindset about imparting good physical and mental health to the child. With this intention, both parents should first consult a doctor about their physical and mental well being. Since the child's physical and mental health is heavily influenced by its parents, it becomes necessary that parents are healthy themselves. Yoga for pregnancy takes a huge step towrds this direction by preparing the human body and mind for birth.

Yoga During Pregnancy: Now comes the time when lady conceives, when physical and mental changes need to handled carefully. According to our Vedas, a child learns many things inside its mother's womb. For example, Ashtavakra ( had taken all the knowledge of vedas inside mother's womb from his father and after coming out, had given the great teaching of ashtavakra geeta to great king Janaka Ji) King Kans, was the son of very religious parents. One day his mother who was pregnant with him took a  walk in their garden outside.Unfortunately, at the same time demon Durmil was also present there and his shadow fall upon his mother who had a great impact on the child present inside. Due to that influence, he grew up to be a cruel king.There are many more examples. From this it is clear how external atmosphere and energies affects the child inside.

Yoga during pregnancy helps the parent through the time of pregnancy by supporting mental stability as well as overall physical health. With proper practice it ensures that thoughts, emotions and energies of the parent nurture a positive environment for the expeted child.With the practice of presribed asanas , special breathing techniques in pranayama and meditation, we at Om yoga help prepare the parent for a smooth pregnancy phase and healthy delivery.

Yoga After Pregnancy: This caters to the time after child birth. Ensuring physical and mental health after childbirth is an equally crucial phase that this style of Yoga addresses.This Yoga for Pregnancy Teacher Training Course has a duration of total 30days (4 weeks). This course is very effective, especially for women. Yoga further enhances your knowledge on the whole birth process by exploring the ancient wisdom of this beautiful science. Here at OM YOGA we follow  ancient techniques given by our sages for the upbringing of children right from the time parents are prepared to have a child till the time the child is born and grows up. This is a unique attribute that our center uses to guide the pregnancy yoga trainees.
