Is it a fair assumption for pregnant yoga students to assume “If you had a yoga practice prior to pregnancy, you will know how and when to modify.”?

Whose responsibility is it to ensure the safety of the student and offer modifications.

What potential harm can really happen to the baby and the pregnant person from inappropriate yoga poses?

In this episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies, I speak with my childbirth educator, Spinning Babies Parent Educator, founder of Om Births and my long time colleague, Bec Conant. In our lively and a bit geeky conversation, Bec and I answer all those questions and more. We both draw from our personal and professional experience about finding the balance between offering the student autonomy of their body and when to support the student with appropriate pose alternatives. We also both talk about the difficulty of not being ego driven in one’s practice.
