Sonic Yoga Honoring Pregnancy and The Goddess Energy:
A Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Program

Sonic Yoga’s Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training program offers so much more than just the skills to teach prenatal Yoga classes. This comprehensive program integrates the perspectives of Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Prana Flow Yoga. Through an integration of these three styles, the program offers a unique solution for all expectant mothers. Our goal is for each graduate to be empowered to provide a safe, unique, nurturing and supportive experience to all of their students.

We offer an in-depth study of Asana for pregnancy including alignment, modifications, use of props, and Contra-indications and hands on assists for all three trimesters of pregnancy.

Sequencing for Flow Yoga for pregnancy is highlighted and the keys of how to teach a private prenatal Yoga session. Prenatal anatomy is taught including both the female anatomy and fetal development.

We also review the basic tenants of Ayurveda for pregnancy including nutrition for pregnancy. A session is spent on Sacred Yoga for Fertility, and addresses modern challenges to conception, miscarriage and loss. In addition the program covers the mysteries of labor and childbirth, and the role of the doula.

What makes our program special is that it honors the Goddess as we explore the feminine current of Shakti and it’s role in conception, pregnancy and childbirth. We experience the vibration of Shakti in the forms of Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati and learn how to invoke the Goddess energy to support mothers .

The certification is pending accreditation by the Yoga Alliance for a RPYT, Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher Certification.

Created by Shiva Rea, this Pre-Natal Teacher Training (with optional Women’s reteat) is designed to open our creative power, sustain life, and dissolve what binds us. It will connect modern-day yoginis with the ancient yoga traditions that honor the shakti within all of creation. We’ll create a natural collective sadhana focusing on the cyclical nature of the female body by learning movement meditations dedicated to the divine feminine or Shakti Namaskars, which sequence the empowered energy of the Goddess in a way that is accessible, universal, and effective for awakening life-energy. This is the third module that will provide students with the 85 contact hours required to meet the YA Prenatal standards for PNY Certificaion. This module will explore the Goddess energy that is so relevant to the emotional & spiritual process of pregnany & birth. You will learn 4 namaskars created by Shiva Rea that are perfect for practice during pregnancy. * Shakti Namaskars for kundalini and Saraswati Ma (the creative flow), Lakshmi Ma (the abundant flow), Durga Ma (the empowered flow), and Radha (the divine sensual flow) as healing sequences expressing the full spectrum of a woman’s life.You will also learn * Specific mudras, meditation, asanas, mantras, and prayers for awakening shakti.
