Jivamukti Yoga Prenatal Teacher Training

From Saturday October 14th until
Saturday October 21st 2023

Jivamukti Peace Yoga Berlin, Germany
Vision
The prenatal certificate training is meant to delve deeply into the teaching and practice of yoga for people who are pregnant. While a 75HR or 300HR Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training covers philosophy, anatomy, sequencing, and asana modification, it is just a beginning.

This training will spend more time exploring the aspects of anatomy, sequencing and asana modification appropriate for a person who is interested in continuing to practice throughout the 40 weeks of pregnancy.

There will be a greater focus on pelvic floor anatomy and energy, abdominal muscles, soft tissue changes, breathing, and spiritual preparation to support new life.

At the end of this program participants will have the tools to modify a practice for a pregnant student, understand the various changes happening in the body, choose language and dharma talks appropriate for pregnant students, teach a class appropriate for both typical and pregnant students, and explore the Magic 10 for the pregnant body.

Martyna Eder

Martyna Eder is an 800hrs+ Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher and an actress. She graduated from the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training in Rhinebeck, New York, in 2011 and then apprenticed with her mentor Petros Haffenrichter. Since then, she has been teaching classes at Jivamukti Berlin and Jivamukti Munich as well as workshops and retreats all over the world. Martynas biggest inspiration is the tireless animal rights and environmental activism of her teachers, Sharon and David, which she makes her priority to pass on to her students by imparting a loving and compassionate behavior towards all living beings and by practicing nonviolence in thoughts, words and actions as the first- and most important step of all yoga practices.

About Agricola Samadhi

Yoga in Salento/ Agricola Samadhi is an international yoga community that gives high value to the connection and well being of body, mind and spirit. Salento is that portion of Italian land where the West meets the East, point of fusion among ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean; an earth to be discovered, kissed by the sun and by a crystalline sea.
In this land of millenary olive groves we offer a fun, welcoming, kind and supportive eco-friendly space for Yoga retreats and holydays in tune with conscious living, with the ‘here & now’. Reconnect with Yourself, with Others, with Mother Nature, with your playfulness! The organic farm Agricola Samadhi is surrounded by nature and silence, in the navel of Salento, Zollino, just 10 minutes from Lecce and 20 minutes from the beautiful beaches and coves. The only sounds you can hear are the wind, the chirping of birds and the sound of crickets. Agricola Samadhi has been environmentally aware, careful and graceful towards Mother Earth since its origin.

For all classes/sessions/parts of this course it is crucial that you arrive on time. There will be no (partial or full) refund of the course fee if you miss any classes of the course. The main requirement for successfully completing the training and receiving the certificate is that you need to “show up” and “be present” and engaged at all sessions and complete all homework. Please note that participation will be monitored, and a certificate of completion will only be issued if you take part in the full 80 hours of this course. It is up to the discretion of Jivamukti Global and the facilitator of the TRC to grant a reasonable extension for a student to complete any work or to deny giving a student a certificate for stating the reason(s) in writing. However, in case of missed classes, sessions, regardless of the reason for missing them, the certificate will only be issued if they have been completed, which might involve an additional fee to compensate the facilitator for taking the time to re-teach the missed parts of the program.
CERTIFICATION

This will not only signify a stepping stone in the quality of your teaching, but also give credit to any future re-stratification of levels in the method.
