Trauma-Informed YTT: Supporting Pregnant & Birthing People (Spring 2024)

May 9 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Supporting Pregnant & Birthing People with Melylah Botté Smith

In this module, you will learn how U.S. birthing culture, healthcare disparities, and systemic trauma can all lead to traumatic experiences for pregnant and birthing people, and why it is essential to hold this knowledge when teaching to this population. In a brave and courageous space, you’ll learn how to create safer and more welcoming yoga classes that incorporate invitational and inclusive language for your prenatal students. This module includes healing-centered practices such as body scans, somatic movement, affirmations, and connection.

Schedule: Thursday, May 9th, 2024 | 5:30-8:30PM (via Zoom)
