YOGA FOR PREGNANCY TRAINING COURSE IN RISHIKESH, INDIA
|UPCOMING COURSES: 24th Jan 2019|
Pregnancy is truly a wonderful stage in women's life. She is going through an incredible transformation. Pregnancy brings the whole new set of changes and challenges. Your body needs to cope up with the continuous changes occurring at physical, emotional, biological and psychological levels. Practicing Yoga in pregnancy makes sense as it prepares the body and mind to integrate the process of change that is taking place. By drawing your attention inward, your awareness of and connection with your baby is deepened, preparing you for the new responsibility. Practicing Yogic postures, breath awareness- pranayama and relaxation techniques is a stepping stone for the healthy mother and baby.
|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: has been given a lot of importance in our Vedic culture. It is seen nowadays, people give birth to child without being fully prepared. Educated people still have started thinking about this but uneducated or unaware people have only focus on giving birth to children. But our Vedas says before Pregnancy, the parents should ponder upon various things: 1. Are they both fully prepared for child or not? 2. Are both physically as well as mentally healthy? 3. What type of mental level they want for their child? To have a child, first both parents must be ready from inside to have the child. If anyone of them is not ready, it is better to wait. And also they must have a clear mindset about what type of mental level they wish for the child? Before going for conceiving, first both should consult a doctor about their physical well being and must focus on their mental well being. Because at time of conceiving, physical and mental level of both plays a great role. If anyone of them feel physically or mentally they are not healthy, it is better to wait for some time first and when they feel are fully realxed, then must go on for child. Because if any of the parent is not physically or mentally healthy, so child also suffers. So, Yoga before Pregnancy is very very important.
Yoga During Pregnancy: Now comes the time when lady conceives, these days are still more crucial for both of them. Because this time lady suffers from many physical and mental challenges. Here both of them needs to pay a much more attention than before. As our Vedas says the child learns many things inside the mother's womb. For this, many expamples have been cited in our Vedas which we teach in our course like Ashtavakra(who 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), and King Kans who was son of very religious parents but when he was in his mother's womb, one day she was taking a walk in the garden outside, but unfortunately, the same time demon Durmil was also present there and his shadow fall upon his mother which had a great impact on the child present inside that made him a such a cruel king when he came on this planet and like this many more. From this it is clear how atmosphere affects the child inside. Good atmosphere also affects and bad atmosphere also affects. So, mother needs to take a lot of care in these days. Specially, what type of mental level you require for your child, are you giving him that atmosphere or not? It is very important to have a look that time. Each and every action of a mother affects her child. Her good thinking also affects and her bad thinking also affects her child. Her good actions or bad actions also put affect on her child. Like doctor says mother's physical health decides the physical health of a child. Similarly, her mental health also affects the mental state of her child. So, lifestyle of a mother is of utmost importance. It is seen nowadays, people do think before for a child that are they prepared or not? But during the pregnancy this thing is not taken in account. Even eduated parents fail in this. Very rare people are seen who knows about it. That how the physical and mental level of mother affects the physical and mental level of her child. It is very important to be aware what type of lifestyle is good for a mother? What should be her mental level? What type of people stay around you? For ex., you want your child to be a good person with positive thinking, not of disturbed mind, very intelligent, but mother in those days stays in an environement where every moment there are fights, negative people stay around, speaking lies, cheating others. So acc. to the thinking you had for your child you are unable to provide him a compatible atmosphere. This results is having a bad effect upon your child. So, this child will learn many negative things instead of positive things inside the womb itself. So, if you want your child should be a good person, mother should think good, stay around more nice people. These things are very important. Ofcourse practice of some required asanas , pranayama or meditation helps to relax the mind and be prepared for normal delivery.
Our course helps the mother to be ready for pain the delivery process. Nowadays, delivery is done through two ways: one is normal delivery and another is through C-Section. Normal delivery is ofcourse the better one and every lady wants to go through this stage. But this fact very much depends upon what type of life she has been living in the previous 9 months or whatever time. In this, Yoga has a lot of impact. Yoga with the help of many breathing and relaxation and meditation techniques prepares the mother for normal deivery rather than c-section. This also helps her to bear the pain she faces at that time. As this is tme most tough time for the lady because it is said the pain that oocurs to a lady at this time is equal to thw bite of 100 scorpions. So, this is very painful. By daily practicing yogic kriyas, she becomes physically and mentally strong that she learns to manage it. We here at Om Yoga teach many different yogic techniques which help her to go through the stage of normal delivery only.
Yoga After Pregnancy: Now comes the time when your child has come in this world. Here, again many things accounts. Giving proper care to the child, giving him a good environment what you desire for him. Keeping yourself physically and mentally healthy is again very important. Because if now again mother is not physically or mentally relaxed, aloong with her, her child also suffers.
This Yoga for Pregnancy Teacher Training Course has a duration of total 30days (4 weeks). This course is very effective for ladies specially. And Yoga is very much required to have a complete knowledge about the birth process of a child. We at OM YOGA tell the ancient techniques followed by our sages for upbringing their children right from the time they were not even in the mothers womb. From the time they were prepared to have a child till the time the child was born and even later upto he grew. This is the main speciality followed at our center to guide the pregnancy timing.

I am very pleased with the course. I feel that i have got a basic understanding about Asanas, Philosophy, Teaching and what it means to be a Yogi. With the word basic, I donot mean simple, I mean a solid foundation from which i can learn more things. I thank from my heart to all who made this training possible. I would have liked more time for self-practice, may be teacher guided self practice.

200hour Yoga TTC
I had a great experience here in the school. The teachers are very friendly and positive. If you come here, you must smile, you have no other option.The people are so very friendly that you feel like a whole family. The yoga classes, practically and theoretically is a very big knowledge. I think i will come back again because it is such a big stuff. But as for now, i got to know many things. It was a great trip here, was a bit difficult to find but if you find them, it is really good. You must stay in the Om Yoga school, because they are so amazing, I felt in love with them.
Alica Anna Wildenauer, Germany
50hour Yoga for Beginners Course
Fantastic. I just completed my course and have already booked to come back in November for 15day 100hour. Good, Healthy Clean food, basic but adequate accomodation. The staff is like family. Very attentive to all your needs. Yoga Teachers were able to work with individuals at their level and to extend their practice without overworking us. If you have never done Yoga, you can do this course. Even if you cannot touch your toes..you will surprise yourself how much improovement will be seen in a week.
Dolly Darling, Australia
50hour Yoga for Beginners Course
I very much enjoyed my teacher training with Om Yoga International. I was impressed with the quality of teaching, and felt that I was learning a lot during the course. My other teacher trainings has been more westernized, and it was really interesting and inspiring to get a traditional and philosophical perspective. There was a lot of focus on Pranayama and meditation in addition to the asanas, I really felt I was given the opportunity to explore yoga in a different manner. If you are looking for an authentic traditional yoga practice then this is perfect!
Lise Knudsen, Norway(Europe)
500hour Yoga TTC
I am from Germany, I attended the Kundalini TTC. It was a wish from heart to learn that knowledge, and even it was a short course (50hours), but all the knowledge was taught to me what is important to know, in theory and practical lessons. The teachers are very nice and they teach from heart. Also they are nice in person and take care of you, that you feel comfortable with everything. The room is very nice and all the Ashram, with Ganga view and nice people and good indian food. I am very thankful for my experience and I will always come back for drop in class or any course.
Maura Herzog, Germany
Kundalini Yoga TTC
I have completed my 200hour Yoga TTC from 18th June till 17th July 2018. I really enjoyed my time at OM YOGA INTERNATIONAL. Was really impressed by theory and practical class. The theory class taught here has given me such a great insight and foundation for my career as a Yoga Teacher. I really feel honoured to have these teachers during my TTC on Yoga. Mantras were also taught in a beautiful way. Lastly, i am thankful to all the staff. I leave from here with a good basis to start my career as a Yoga Teacher.
Harsimran Waraich, India
200hour Yoga TTC
I loved the course because I love all the instructors here. They are all awesome in each unique ways. Yoga Theory is life changing knowledge, much more than i expected! ()This is the best reason i recommend to learn Yoga in India!) Practical Classes are really powerful to formulate the basics of body and mind; instructor skills are all very impressive! Its beyond description what i gained from this course:)
200hour Yoga TTC
I completed my 200 hour Yoga TTC and Kundalini Yoga course in the month of September, 2017. I could feel so many changes in me. I had a habit of taking drugs but after studying the course, i really changed my habits to Sattvic. Also, what we all use to feel that happiness is something that comes from outer world. Here, I learned what is true happiness? Now, i can say and can feel that i am very happy and can feel happiness from inside and doesnot require outer things to keep me happy.
Kyosuke Atsumi, Japan
200 Hour Yoga TTC and Kundalini Yoga
I was very happy to learn Yoga Philosophy so deeply. I feel myself fortunate because the beginning of my yoga course was in Om Yoga!! I feel it was my best choice that i started my yoga course here. As i learnt everything in a traditional way. At some parts i feel more different asana practice can be set up in the course rather than repeating asanas everyday.
Yusuke Honda, Japan
500hour Yoga TTC
I have completed my 500 hour Yoga TTC course in the month of Nov,2017. Before 5 years, i suffered from Diabetes and due to this, i underwent a lot of stress. i could feel everytime i use to hide my real self. I could never express myself the way i am. This very thing always made me feel not good. After completing the yoga course, i was able to recognise and accept real me and could question myself as a neutral person. This was so superb that i started dealing with my problems so nicely. This was the first thing that helped me here to overcome my stress. The best lesson i learned in my Yoga course is Aparigraha. Have as much required. Ask yourself how much you require rather than working unconsciously. I was able to manage my stress effectively.I was deeply benefitted by this program as i learned the right way of living a life.
Yuki Yamamoto, Japan
500 Hour Yoga TTC
Before this course, my aim was only to achieve certificate. But later, this course became such a great experience for me. This course helped me to face myself deeply that how negative i am. But, yes this also helped me to become positive. Learning Yoga here helped me to learn to accept the things as they are. The best part of this course was i could meet Ruchika Sensei, whose lessons had a great impact on my mind. It was great and fantastic to take lectures of her. I would really love to take advance course in the future here.
Kimie Sato, Japan
200 hour Yoga TTC
I completed my Kundalini Yoga TTC from 1st July till 11th July 2018. I am happy to complete my course here as teachers here are very excellent and understanding. Ashram location is very beautiful on the bank of Ganga river. Also, they provide us with all the facilities. So, overall it is a great education and positive experience.
Sarthak Arora, India
Kundalini Yoga TTC
Before coming here, I thought yoga is stretching body . I used to meditate but thought it was nothing to do with yoga. Now I know meditation is nothing but yoga. Everything I learned here, asana, meditation, pranayama, theory are very useful in a practical life. I feel this brings calmness into my life even if I don't mean to attain samadhi. We can learn something we are missing in today's Japanese society. I will keep learning more deeply and make my life even better.
Kenji Kobayashi, Japan
500 hour Yoga TTC
By studying Yoga here, i learnt to get answer to my questions by developing awareness about them. I could feel the connection in between my body and mind, and keep calm, this is what actually yoga is. I used to be negative about everything before, but now I stopped differentiating people from me because i feel everything is connected with love. Now i accept everything flexibly,be honest to myself and others. This is something i learned through yoga. Yoga is necessary habit for me. inevitable in my life. I will keep practicing. Be strict to myself but not force myself.
Mayu Kono, Japan
500 hour Yoga TTC and Kundalini Yoga TTC
Ashram is located at such a peaceful place that I was so overwhelmed by my stay at such a pleasant place. Rooms are so clean and spacious and well-ventilated. Food provided is fresh and hygienic and purely sattvic food. All people staying here are so kind and cooperative. Regarding my Yoga experience, before I didn’t know correctly what is Yoga? For me it was not more than exercise. But now, after completing the course, I can say clearly ,”Yoga is life” because yoga focuses on our body and mind and more than that, inner self. At last, I can only say that my life changed, and sparked by understanding Yoga, and meeting so nice Yoga teachers of OmYoga
Saki Takagi, Japan
300 hour Yoga TTC
We came to this centre to do yoga for beginners course from 6th July till 13th July 2018. This is really a good place as teachers here are very good and course is also good. The main thing here i like is hospitailty and the openness of teachers. I would like to thank each and every teacher for teaching us basic concepts in a very proper way. I would like to thanks each and every one who was serving us food at each time with a smiling face.
Madhan S, India
Yoga for Beginners
I completed my Yoga for Beginner course from 6th July till 13th July 2018. I am very new to yoga. My first impression about the course is discipline, way of teaching and more importantly everyone took care personally to explain every taught. Thank you very much for all, it was really a great experience.
Sivakumar K, India
Yoga for Beginners
I completed my 200 Hour Yoga TTC course in the month of August 2017. I was able to meet so kind people here. Here, I learnt how body, mind and breath are connected with each other. Yoga is not merely asanas. Doing asanas, by connecting mind with body helps in achieving better pose. I learnt from here,"“Don’t make the problem bigger by yourself.” This is what I learned from teacher Ruchika Saran. “Be satisfied with what you have now.” “You become far from happiness if you are focusing on past or future.” “Find happiness from where you are, be responsible for yourself, choose to be better.” These are golden things i have learned from here.
Saori Nozaki, Japan
200 Hour Yoga TTC
I am very happy that i completed my course here. Before this, i did my course at other places before coming here : Patanjali University and In DU. But i was totally confused in yogic concepts. At some of the places, i even hurt myself while doing asanas because the way of teaching was so hard there. But as here i have completed my course, I am so happy that finally i know what is Yoga and how to implement it in my life. Because here, everything taught is from traditional concepts.
Swati Sharma, India
500hour Yoga TTC
I am fully satisifed to do my course here. I was bit scared before coming here but now as i have completed my course, i can say this is the best and safe place for females also. All people in ashram are very loving, caring and helpful. For 3 months, i didnot felt as if i am away from home. Now, regarding the course, I had a completely different experience. What i knew about yoga was totally difefrent from what i gained from here. I came to know yoga is so deep and had learnt so much knowledge which i had never ever thought of also.
Jitu Bala Brahma, India
500hour Yoga TTC
I had so many confusion for yoga. But after taking course here, i felt very happy. It was very relaxing and comfortable for me. I had a very nice experience here. All people and teachers are very cooperative. So, I am fully satisfied while leaving from here and would like to come in future for advanced course
Nilima Chowdhury, India
200hour Yoga TTC
I am extremely satisfied after completing my course. I had enquired from so many yoga centres before coming here. At last i decided to choose this centre for me. I am happy from each and very aspect from yoga classes to accomodation to meals here.
Lalit Kumar Singh, India
500hour Yoga TTC
I had done PG Diploma of 2 years from Patanjali University before coming here. And also i had learnt yoga from various other places but had no confidence in me. But after completing my course, i can say what i could not learn there in 2 years have learnt more than that in just 3 months and also confidence came in me.
Ram Kumar, India
500hour Yoga TTC
I could learn, "What is Yoga?" through he lessons from the Indian Instructors who have accumulated experience with the true knowledge in India, the holy place of Yoga. All reached my heart very smoothly and clearly, because of its truthfulness and concrete examples in daily life. Instructors of Asanas, Pranyama and Meditation were also experts in their fields. I spent everyday with enjoyment and with the feelings of changes in my body and mind. I am glad that i came here.
