BabyMoon Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training is an 85-Hour Training and registered Prenatal Yoga School with Yoga Alliance. Upon completion, teachers register as a Prenatal Yoga Specialist.
Babymoon Prenatal Yoga draws upon the ancient women healers who honored and observed the sacred cycles of nature and the power of the feminine. This collective women's wisdom was different from the more masculine practice of yoga with which we are familiar today. It is more celebratory, is rooted in spontaneous ecstatic experience and honors the female body and female sexuality. These ancient healers blended their knowledge from many sources to create a holistic model of care that nurtures and empowers the body, the mind and the spirit. In this tradition, BabyMoon Prenatal Yoga draws upon female-centered ancient yoga practices, vinyasa yoga, traditional healing arts, eastern mindfulness practices, personal transformation, rituals, conscious birth movement, attachment theory, modern medicine and science as well as poetry and storytelling.
Module 1 The Physical Body: The physiology of pregnancy and birth anatomy of the pelvis and optimal fetal positioning changes in mother and baby in each trimester asana modifications, indicated and contraindicated asanas alignment and safety for pregnancy Pregnancy discomforts.
Carrie Parker Gastelu, E-500 RYT, RPYT, LCE is Founder and Director of BabyMoon Prenatal Yoga and a Certified Lamaze Childbirth Educator. She has been teaching yoga for more than twenty years. She is known for her honest, non-dogmatic yet passionate approach. Her philosophy combines vinyasa yoga with traditional women's healing arts, eastern mindfulness practices, personal transformation, rituals, the conscious birth movement, attachment theory and childbirth education.

Find Your Center
by Jason Crandell
RETURN TO YOUR CENTER | Jason Crandell
August 11-13, 2017
Fri 8am-4pm | Sat & Sun 9am-5pm
$495, $450 through July 28
If you’re a yoga teacher, your practice is no longer yours and yours alone. Your practice has most likely got tied up with your identity as a teacher and the challenges of making a living. Ironically, you might practice less consistently and intensely than you did before you taught. And, when you do make it onto your mat it can be hard for you to find the steadiness of mind that you once achieved because you’re thinking about your sequences and what postures you’re going to teach your students this week. I’ve taught for 20 years and I don't know a single teacher that hasn’t gone through the same challenges. I’ve been there myself, more than once. That’s why I created this program.
This 3-day teacher’s program will return you to your centre and reconnect you to your practice. Think about this program as part retreat, part training, in the company of your peers.
In the mornings, you will be a student again and savor a strong, complete 3-hr vinyasa practice. No notes, no analysis—just practice. It’s time to make your practice a sanctuary again and remember why you fell in love with yoga in the first place. You’ll work at your physical edge, refine your technique and inspire your practice.
In the afternoons, you will refine key components of your teaching that will distinguish yourself. You’ll also create practical strategies to manage the logistical challenges of earning a living as a teacher. In the afternoons, you will focus on:
Day 1: You will hone your sequencing. You’ll learn how to bring greater focus, consistency and purpose to your classes. You’ll learn the absolute essentials for creating consistent, compelling classes that reflect your values and help your students make progress. You’ll also learn how to structure an entire month of classes and build sequences for workshops. You’ll receive sample sequences for every posture group and two ‘master’ templates that teach you how Jason creates all of his classes.
Day 2: You will fine-tune your manual adjustments. You won’t learn any fancy new tricks, like how to use 7 belts, 4 partners and the tip of your nose to manipulate down dog. But, you will make sure that you’re giving excellent, supportive adjustments that make your students feel safe, secure and knowledgeable in their postures. You’ll learn the most effective, successful ways of adjusting key backbends, forward bends and inversions.
Day 3: You will refine your verbal cues. Concise, accurate, accessible verbal cuing is the key to being an effective teacher. In this session, you will learn to trust simple, clear language that everyone can understand. You’ll replace common teaching jargon, cliché’s, and filler-words with accessible teaching cues that will resonate with your students. You’ll make sure that you’re language is inspired, consistent and accurate for every posture category. And, you’ll recieve advice on how much talking is too much and how much talking is insufficient.
About Jason and his teaching:
