Together with Birthing Mama® founder Corinne Andrews, Amy Wright Glenn crafted curriculum for an exceptional Birthing Mama® Prenatal Yoga and Wellness online Birth Professionals Workshop.
This workshop is designed to support birth professionals in integrating the benefits of prenatal yoga practice and wellness wisdom into their current work. In particular, doulas, midwives, and childbirth educators will find the information presented to be extremely useful in their work with expectant mothers. While yoga teachers are warmly welcome to participate, one doesn’t need to be a yoga teacher to register.
The Birthing Mama® online program serves as the curriculum for the workshop and is very comprehensive. The online program covers six components of Prenatal Yoga and Wellness from weeks 14-42. The components are: prenatal yoga videos, developmental benchmarks, nutritional guidance, inspiring articles, self-care suggestions, and creative/mindfulness activities.
As a Birthing Mama® Prenatal Yoga and Wellness Teacher Trainer, CD(DONA) birth doula, and prenatal yoga teacher with over a decade of teaching experience, Amy brings a great deal of skill to the task of supporting each participant in integrating knowledge learned into her own specific context.
This workshop consists of 7.5-hours of live, online instruction skillfully guiding participants through the online Birthing Mama® program. Each of the five 90-minute modules is recorded and all participants can access recordings at any time. There is no need to attend the program live in order to successfully complete the workshop.
Participants will be given the option of earning a 30-hour Certificate of Completion or earn a 20-hour Certificate of Completion depending upon their choice of two homework options presented in the workshop.
