The Birthlight Perinatal Yoga teacher training started with a pioneering module in the first Diploma of Yoga Therapy offered in London by the Yoga Biomedical Trust in 1995. A decade of experimentation by Françoise Freedman consolidated the integration of prenatal yoga, yoga for birth including birth partners, postnatal and parent with baby classes. Birthlight is acclaimed internationally as a trainers’ trainer in Perinatal Yoga.
The Perinatal Diploma course will equip teachers with specific adjustments of yoga asana and innovative techniques for each of the trimesters of pregnancy. The practice is expanded and developed through to the other side of birth, introducing a gentle postpartum practice for stabilizing the body in the fourth trimester.
