Important Information pertaining to all 8 Limbs Teacher Training Certification Programs.

Prenatal and Postnatal are life changing journeys that can profoundly affect one’s current yoga practice or be a catalyst for someone seeking out a yoga class. Yoga offers a unique tool to help address the specific discomforts of pregnancy, prepare the body for birth and support healing postpartum.

This four-part yoga training will offer sections ideal for pregnant or postpartum yoga students and birthworkers or yoga teachers looking to support students who come to their regular classes. Teachers who opt to delve into all four modules will receive in-depth training in creating safe classes and practices and will explore the nuances of the art of teaching for working with pregnant, birthing and postpartum folks.

About the instructor: Megan Sloan

Megan Sloan Yoga SeattleMegan has been teaching Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga since 2009. She did her first training with 8 Limbs Yoga Centers as an exploration to deepen her studies as a yoga teacher which then blossomed into a passion for supporting parents in empowering their experiences of pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood through the tools of yoga. She has since attended many births as a doula and has had the humbling opportunity to witness and support birth folks in childbirth in a variety of settings from home births to birth centers and hospital births. She currently teaches weekly prenatal yoga classes and offers regular Partner Prenatal Yoga Workshops. She also welcomed a daughter in 2017 and outside of the joys of new motherhood she also finds time to continue teaching through her business Be Strong Mama and writing several books for prenatal teachers including “Yoga for Pregnancy & Birth” and “Yoga for the Pregnant & Postpartum Core”.
