Science, art, skills, as well as everyday tasks—all must be awakened by the spark of our inner spirit, to enable us to develop the excellence of our personality, for our benefit and for the benefit of humanity. The Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre abides by these teachings and therefore offers a series of courses that constitute what Swami Vivekanada and, thereafter, the previous Swamis of the Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre sought: a complete University of Man.

Yoga-maternité- naissance -  formation 2019 - 2020



Yoga connects parents to their deepmost self and to their eternal and infinite aspects, and enables a connection to take place between parent and child in this plane, from soul to soul, from heart to heart. The parent-child connection is woven among the fulness of being, harmony, and peace, accompanied by a unique feeling of pure love that instills a love of being in the child.
Each follows their own path during the practice of this pre-natal yoga, through a set of postures and exercises that are specifically aimed at:
- Discovering of the pregnant body: pelvis, perineal area, spinal cord, abdominal muscles;
- Discovering of our newly-shining energy;
- Discovering an art of living the processes of pregnancy and birth, with consciousness and joy.
Over two years, the programme “Yoga for Maternity and Birth” aims to enable students to discover within themselves the treasures of being and to shine them afterwards through teaching, in order to accompany pregnant women and couples. The programme also enables students to shine the Light of the infinite around themselves in their lives, in order to construct together a new world based upon eternal values.
The programme lasts two years and takes place over six weekends and one week-long workshop per year, for a total of 12 weekends and two weeks (during July) of workshops. A course diploma is awarded at the end of this series of weekends and week-long workshops.
Participants receive documents on the techniques and teachings of each half-day during the sessions.
The programme is aimed at yoga teachers, midwives, and more generally to all individuals involved in maternity and who seek to obtain a degree in Yoga for Maternity and Birth.
Pregnant women, couples that are preparing for the arrival of a child, and anyone with a personal interest in the teaching of Yoga for Maternity and Birth, are all welcome to follow any of the weekends or week-long workshops, without taking part in the full programme.
