As a new yoga teacher, I got a lot of questions I couldn’t answer:

  • Why does my back hurt in this pose?
  • What’s the best pose for knee pain?
  • My neck hurts in the morning – what can I do?

When I started teaching pregnant women and new moms, the questions increased, because during this time small misalignments are magnified. Plus, hormonal and alignment changes introduce all sorts of new pregnancy and pospartum issues:

  • Round ligament pain
  • Diastisis recti
  • Pelvic instability
  • Cesarean wound healing

I didn’t want to be the kind of teacher who said things like “just breathe into the pain” or “maybe don’t do that pose.”

So I dove into alignment studies for 15 years, received my Masters in Kinesology as well as my Anusara Yoga Certification. and developed what I call “The Five Sacred Steps.” These alignment principles arose from my particular interest in how yoga changes – and must change – for women’s bodies, as well as from pregnancy itself.

In The Yoga of Healing for Women, we use The Five Sacred Steps to relieve normal aches and pains as well as the unique issues that arise around birth, throuh both verbal and hands-on adjustments.

Yoga Therapeutics

These alignment principles go far beyond the mat: they are guidelines to practice, teach, and live by. The steps of co-creating can help us enjoy being pain-free, strong, and free throughout our lives.

In this transformative weekend, we will apply these principles to basic yoga poses and sequences, and learn to instruct with them to help our students out of pain.

Poses we teach all the time – chatturanga, downward dog, backbends and standing poses – can worsen pain for the vulnerable pregnant and post-partum body.

Bring your aches and pains! They are often our greatest gurus, so we can learn to help others heal from them. These principles are particularly useful for common pregnancy discomforts, but help reduce pain for all bodies, all the time.

If you would like to become a Certified Ma Yoga®/Yoga Alliance RPYT Instructor, you must take both Prenatal 1 and 2. These are long weekends and can be taken in any order.

What Will I Be Able To Do After Prenatal 2?

  • Relieve common aches and discomforts, both in traditional poses on the mat and those that arise throughout the day and night.
  • Apply the Five Sacred Steps to common birth-related issues, including infertility, back labor, pelvic instability and diastisis recti (or “post-baby belly”).
  • Be guided by the chakras through the journey of postpartum healing
  • Teach moms how to gently strengthen their core and start weaving the abdominals together again

Meet your Ma Yoga® Certified Teacher Trainer, Colleen Hieber

Thank you Colleen for sharing with us your knowledge about bio mechanics of the body, energy flow and mindful movement. I really appreciate you taking us in such an awesome journey through the body’s anatomy and it was really amazing to be able to feel the different alignments ourselves. And at the very end of the training I feel confident enough to be able to recognize mis-alignments and have the tools to guide a student into a better and more optimal position. Feeling the changes and benefits in our own body was key to be able to understanding all the principles of Therapeutic Yoga!

– Andrea Myers
