Yoga Shakti 85 Hour Prenatal Teacher Training Program
With Andrea Rasla, RYT500

This comprehensive training program is intended for yoga teachers that have completed a 200-hour training program with a Registered Yoga School, who are interested in teaching Prenatal Yoga, addressing needs of the postnatal students, or who simply want to gain more confidence and assurance guiding pregnant students that join their regular yoga class. Students that complete our 85-hour training will be qualified to offer yoga to pregnant and postpartum women and will be eligible for the RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) designation with the Yoga Alliance. The demand for professionally trained prenatal yoga teachers is on the rise, as health professionals and childbirth educators continue to recognize and experience how the prenatal yoga practice contributes to the well-being of pregnant women. This training creates an opportunity for teachers to become a bigger part of this movement and provides the tools to ease and empower women going through their most incredible and transformative journey - the first stage of motherhood.

FREE Introduction to Ayurveda
With Sandhiya Ramaswamy

Ayurveda, which literally means "The knowledge of Life and Longevity", is a 5,000-year old powerful natural healing science from India. Health as defined by Ayurveda is a balanced state of body, mind and consciousness - Health according to Ayurveda is not just the absence of illness or symptoms - it is a state of balance, radiance, joy, vitality and peaceful wellbeing. Ayurveda focuses on the whole person and seeks to correct the imbalances at the root cause of the disease, instead of focusing just on the symptoms, which is the Western medical paradigm. Another unique aspect of Ayurveda is that it views each and every one of us through the lens of our unique constitution or blueprint and the treatment plan is customized just for you - this is very different from the Western medical approach of 'one size fits all'. Ayurveda offers various tools to support the body and mind in its journey back to balance and health. Based one one's unique constitution and the nature of the imbalance, Ayurveda employs a (w)holistic and customized approach, offering dietary recommendations, medicinal herbs, yoga, meditation, breath-work (pranayama), aromatherapy, sound and color therapies, daily and seasonal lifestyle practices to bring us back into our state of balance.
