START TODAY WITH YOUR PRENATAL ALIGNMENT YOGA COURSE!
Are you pregnant and thinking about to start practicing yoga?
This is good because intelligent movement, as we practice it in Alignment Yoga, helps the body to adapt to the pregnancy and common problems such as back pain, neck pain or digestion problems can be reduced with yoga postures. Moving the body during pregnancy is very important!
Your increased flexibility during pregnancy can lead to misalignment in the Yoga poses. This can cause problems! In this course we show you exactly where you have to be careful and how you can adapt the yoga poses for a safe practice.
Would you like to continue with your yoga practice during pregnancy, but are you unsure if it is safe to do so?
This is a valid concern and many ask this question. Yoga is safe if you have clear instructions. Alignment Yoga in particular offers a safe and healthy way to keep your practice going.
As the body changes and flexibility increases, correct and safe instructions for each Yoga posture are important to avoid common misalignment in the joints, which could lead to problems. In this course you will find a gallery where every asana is very well explained and demonstrated for you.
Common issues during pregnancy are back pain, stiffness in the neck and shoulders, digestion problems, difficulty in breathing etc. Many yoga postures, when done properly, can provide relieve. Some postures should be either avoided or adapted to make them safe. We give you valuable tips how to practice them.
Yoga is not only benefiting you physically during pregnancy, but also helps you to calm down and reduce stress. We have included important techniques such as proper breathing, a guided Yoga Nidra and a guided meditation that you can practice for more inner peace during your pregnancy.

Yoga is for me not just a physical exercise I do, but a holistic practice to bring health and healing into the body, which helps me to go deeper and connect with my soul.
To help other souls on their path and to help you during your pregnancy is my true mission.
I am a certified yoga therapist in Switzerland, specialized in Alignment Yoga and co-owner of the yoga place, gmbh. Alignment Yoga is a Yoga style that focuses on the correct alignment of the body in each yoga posture in respect to the person's individual anatomy. I had the opportunity to work with many mothers-to-be over the years, who felt the tremendous benefit from this style of yoga.
To teach Yoga to others is my true inner calling and a natural passion. I am very happy that this workshop was "born" to bring more comfort in your pregnancy through the gift of Yoga.

What is Alignment Yoga?
Alignment Yoga is a style of yoga that respects your individual anatomy and any weak points in the body, thus avoiding yoga injuries. The yoga postures are held for longer periods of time to allow the effects of each exercise to develop in the body. We use yoga props. Props not only support the body, they also allow us to experience the yoga postures on a deeper level.
Do I need yoga props for the class?
What is highly recommended besides the yoga mat is a yoga belt, two yoga blocks and a blanket. A yoga bolster does not have to be, but is certainly a good investment, but the backrest of your sofa or the breastfeeding cushion will help as a substitute.
How long does it take to view the entire course?
The full course features 90 video clips covering almost 8.5h of viewing time.
