The prenatal yoga teacher training program MA YOGINI of Kashmir Shaivism school of yoga provide this specialization

Yoga for women covers all ranges, from the  lunar cycle, pregnancy stage, postnatal and fertility issues. Learning how to use our energy, the energy of the goddess Shakti in each of its phases is one of the focal points of this training for prenatal yoga teachers. Our job as prenatal yoga teachers is to share the appropriate teachings, practices and alignments in order to educate and empower women during each trimester throughout pregnancy.

MA YOGINI is expressing the potential benefits of Yoga in the journey into motherhood. MA is the primordial and powerful mantra for the supreme mother in Sankrit and YOGINI is the name given to the female adept in yoga. With this name we are honouring the divine shakti, the creative and manifested energy. The ancient wisdom of the tantra in India named the earth the great goddess, the mother of all living things. then womens and the earths fertility were combined, as expressed, for example  in a archaeological seal found In Harappa ( see image below) showing a women upside down , giving birth to an entire tree, with its trunk and branches, with a emanation coming out of her yoni. it is not a baby, nor a plant—it is energy—that of the life force which brings both babies and vegetation into being, into this world. You will notice that her arms are on her knees in an almost meditative position . which are linked with our tradition of Kashmir Shaivism

Kashmir Shaivism has been known for being a non dual philosophy strong linked with the housewife tradition of tantra in India, the connection is clear this philosophy use the shakti force in everything as an important fuel for life and our masters has been aware  that the most accessible aspect of shakti , of primordial cosmic energy , is women, for every women is a goddesses and that Kundalini is that mysterious dynamism which guides the evolution of being from the fertilized ovum onwards. in history and legend the woman is often a source of meditation, vision , excitement, strength, challenge, energy and inspiration to humans and acts as a catalyst in his life, while the role of the goddesses was to guide, direct and give meaning to the lives of the heroes that they choose. Learn how to support women during their journey into motherhood, conscious birthing and postnatal yoga in adequate manner encouraging women to experience a confident postnatal transition, joy-filled pregnancy, and empowered birth

At this moment in feminine  history the right of women to decide on the choice of their childbirth is becoming one of the most important topics in relation to the anthropology of birth. ancient cultures in places like Amazon, Africa and some parts of India can teach modern women  essential lessons in the  rite of passage of pregnancy and childbirth, where we discover new dimensions of womanhood. In India for example, the Carnatic singing method is used during chilbirth and is seen as one of the most powerful technique which is now being recognized worldwide. One of the trainers during the course specialized in restorative Yoga for women, yoga for kids – families and anthropology of birth,  will be sharing  her experience with different shamanic  traditions of south america as well in India  guiding the students to learn about how different cultures of the world  have been approach the rite of passage of childbirth, understanding that woman has been always born of a woman and that woman from other and that this line is connected to the first woman, having us the force of them all .
