Four Module Online Workshop: Yoga Tools for Birth Professionals

Doula Canada and Angela Jackson have joined together to offer you a comprehensive course that will help you develop your knowledge about Yoga principles, philosophies, and how it can positively influence our clients lives!
This knowledge will position you to offer guidance through discussion with your clients. It does not position you to teach Yoga, prescribe Yoga therapies or make recommendations to address medical concerns. The goal of this course is first and foremost to help you understand Yoga practices as they related to a healthy pregnancy, recovery, and postpartum period.
Much of the knowledge gained in this course can also apply to your personal lifestyle choices!  

Course synopsis:

Yoga Tools for Birth Professionals is a course designed for doulas, midwives, nurses, doctors, massage therapists, and anyone else who supports prenatal and postnatal people. You will come away from this 4 module course with;

  • A better understanding at how a regular yoga practice can benefit prenatal and postnatal people holistically
  • Poses and movements to relieve common pregnancy discomforts
  • Yoga beyond the physical poses
  • Tools you can use to support your clients
  • Contraindications and cautions during pregnancy
  • How to apply yoga philosophy during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period
  • The value of mindfulness

This course is NOT a certification to become a Prenatal or Postnatal Yoga Teacher and facilitate public classes. You will be able to recommend poses, meditation, breathing exercises, and more to your clients with an understanding of the proper application. Each week has a “Reflection of the week” and it is recommended that you complete this in addition to the course material. Recommended readings are optional and can be completed at a later date.

Module topics:

WEEK ONE: What is yoga?

WEEK TWO: The benefits of yoga during pregnancy.

WEEK THREE: Yoga during birth.

WEEK FOUR: Yoga for parenthood.

Questions and support during your course:

Even though this is an online course it is important for you to have your questions answered as they come up and a place to discuss client cases and have clarity around your role when it comes to nutrition and support. Doula Canada and Angela Jackson will provide an online forum where you can post questions and receive answers. If the questions are more of a private nature you may email Angela Jackson directly for one on one support as it pertains to course content.
