Pre & Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training
Aug.
23
to 1 Sep.

Pre & Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training

Training that empowers teachers to be confident enough and have a broader understanding of these physiology changes so they can empower their students to practice safely and confidently.

New mamas and expectants mamas are modern day warriors.  With a firm belief that these women, in fact all women, need to be strong both physically, mentally and emotionally, I am so excited to be able to offer a Pre & Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training that harnesses that belief. 

A decade in the making, this training will be available to qualified yoga teachers, new mamas and mamas to be.  It will give both students and teachers the confidence to create sequences safely, practice intelligently and gain a deep understanding of what’s happening at every stage through pre and post pregnancy.

I’ll be joined by an extraordinary guest faculty, covering elements of anatomy, yoga philosophy, Chinese medicine and more.

The course is certified by Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia and will count as a 50hr teacher training for those who have already completed a minimum of 200hrs certified yoga teacher training.

Held over 2 weekends 23rd-25th August and 30th-1st September 2019.

Limited spaces.

The Climbing Tree in Sydney

Riverside Theatres and Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre in association with Australian Theatre for Young People
THE CLIMBING TREE
By Rachael Coopes

Across the Great Dividing Range lies another great divide. Between us and them. Dreamed and the dreaming. Haves and have-nots. Gold and dust. Coppers and gangs. Always an us, and always a them. Changing form, skin, name. Big sparkling city chewing them up, spitting them out, pushing them over the mountains to us.

It’s Rayleen’s birthday, but she’s not getting excited. She and three other teenagers are caught in an interrogation room. Their lives overlap but their challenges are very different. In this town, the past is with you everywhere you go, looking over your shoulder, whispering songs of survival. It’s hard to live for the moment when you can’t see a future. Particularly when the past keeps closing doors.

Developed over three years as a partnership between Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre and Australian Theatre for Young People, with extensive community consultation, this powerful new play looks at the experiences of generations of teenagers in Bathurst. Part drama, part music, part ghost story, it’s a personal tale that reflects experiences shared in towns across Australia. Rachael Coopes and Guy Webster, part of the creative force behind the multi-award winning Sugarland, bring to life another particularly Australian story.

Please note: This production contains coarse language and drug references.

Suitable for: Ages 14+ and their families

Dates & Times:
Thursday 22 November at 11am and 7:30pm
