The details

Postnatal Teacher Training
with Kirsteen Ruffel

The Postnatal Yoga course is accessible to qualified yoga teachers, who wish to offer postnatal yoga classes to new mothers. The course includes some interactive practices with babies but the main focus is on the use of yoga to promote maternal well-being.


Special features of Birthlight Postnatal Yoga

  • Birthlight offers an original set of practices of deep pelvic floor toning and core strength micro-movements that are effective at any point from birth onwards.  All practices are suitable for mothers after Caesarean births. Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga are brought together to ensure a solid foundation for well-being as a new mother.
  • The course imparts an understanding of how asanas can be adapted progressively to ensure optimal spinal alignment through the postnatal year, from supine, raised sitting, all fours and prone positions, to classic sitting, kneeling and standing postures. The course includes ‘off the mat’ yoga practices that new mothers can use in their daily lives while caring for their babies
  • The course imparts unique Birthlight adaptations of classic yoga practices as flow sequences, dynamic or relaxing walks and interactive fun stretches involving babies
  • This course is tutor assessed by means of a simple practical and some home study. Coursework consists of a worksheet and a case study (minimum of 4 sessions). It should be submitted within six months after the course.
