This course offers a 4 day (2 weekends) training for pregnancy yoga teachers to integrate hypnotherapy into their classes and to expand their therapeutic skill set. This course acknowledges the wide overlap that exists between yoga and hypnotherapy, and how seamlessly hypnosis can be integrated into the pregnancy yoga setting to achieve a therapeutic outcome.
Hypnosis is a completely natural state of absorption or focussed attention (think yoga nidra). During hypnosis we can make helpful suggestions to the unconscious mind to change behaviours, thoughts and sensations during and post hypnosis. Everyone responds uniquely to hypnosis but most describe the experience as deeply relaxing and nurturing.
Research has shown that hypnosis reduces the length of time for active labour for first time mothers and significantly reduces the need for pain relief. It also promotes more spontaneous deliveries and reduces the incidence of post natal depression.
The course will enable you to be an integrative hypnotherapist for birth within a yoga setting. It has been designed and will be taught by Janine Hurley and Lynne Tomlinson, both of whom are hypnotherapists within the NHS. Janine Hurley is also a yoga teacher who delivers the Yogacampus Pregnancy and Baby Yoga and Baby Massage trainings. Janine was also the co- author of the recent Manchester University study on the effects of ante natal yoga on maternal anxiety and depression.
Integrating hypnotherapy into your teaching will be transformative, not just as an aid for birth but also for your general classes. Yoga is hypnotic and by incorporating the finely tuned skills gained through hypnotherapy you can learn to offer students an added extra resource to delve into their intuitive true nature.
