Accessible Prenatal Yoga - Student Edition

Accessible Yoga that is gentle and safe for pregnancies of different abilities, risks and health conditions

When your pregnancy reality is so far from your expectations, you can still focus on your health and wellbeing.

When I was pregnant, I was huge! So much bigger than I could imagine. My mobility declined rapidly as I got bigger and I had a host of discomforts and issues.

Most pregnant women who experience pain or a health condition usually stop practicing yoga altogether because her prenatal yoga teacher simply does not know how to accommodate her in class. Sound familiar? You've come to the right place.

This course is designed to help you practice a more accessible style of yoga for pregnant women through the five stages of pregnancy. Here you will learn:

  • Theory and techniques of Accessible Yoga for Pregnancy
  • The five stages of pregnancy
  • Special considerations for prenatal yoga
  • How to adapt yoga postures for different abilities while maintaining a smooth class flow
  • Addressing the needs of women during the postnatal period
  • Comprehensive introduction to Raja Yoga and meditation
  • Sample classes, guided meditations, resources and much more...

Hersha has studied Yoga under the guidance of Sri Swami Satchidananda and his system of Integral Yoga since she was a child. She is an authorised trainer for Integral Yoga, an Accessible Yoga Trainer and Ambassador and Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Trainer as well. Hersha created her Prenatal Yoga program out of a need for Prenatal Yoga classes to come away from the fitness side and more into the therapeutic side. She developed this program based on demands from students and friends.

Hersha runs Hersha Yoga: School of Teacher Training which donates its profits to YAMA Foundation, a unique non-profit she co-founded (which brings yoga, arts and meditation to underserved and vulnerable communities in the poorest parts of Hong Kong).

She has taught in Hong Kong, New York, Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal, and India and has been featured publications including in South China Morning Post (SCMP), Asia Tatler, Global Health & Travel, Liv Magazine and Green Queen. Hersha has been pregnant herself, twice and her experience was not ideal or glamorous and she boldly shares her journey through pregnancy, labour and delivery and postnatal recovery. She shares all the mistakes she made during her time practicing prenatal yoga and hopes that by educating yoga teachers and pregnant women, they can all have easeful, peaceful and useful prenatal yoga experiences.
