Janet MacFarlane is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).
I feel very fortunate to have gone through Hilltop Yoga’s teacher training, with an apprenticeship in teaching prenatal yoga. I having been teaching prenatal yoga since September 2008 and through doing so, I have found so much joy. I have continued my training and completed my 500 hour teacher training through Hilltop Yoga and am registered with Yoga Alliance as a 500 hour teacher and as a Prenatal Yoga teacher. I am also Registered as an Experienced 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher. I continue to learn every day and have completed a Prenatal Teacher Training and Conscious Birthing Certification with Janice Clarfield. As a certified Prenatal Fitness Educator with the International Childbirth Education Association , I have solidified my understanding and knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the pregnant body and how it best reacts to exercise--I know how to keep my students safe.
Pregnancy can be the perfect time to tap into one’s own power. It is a time to cultivate body awareness that comes about through the use of breath and movement. It is a time to tune into that deep connection between a mother and her baby. There is nothing like the experience! I am grateful for the opportunity to share this with the community.
I teach Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga classes. Check my website for details: www.mahamamas.com
You can also find me teaching yoga at my local YMCA.
