How Trauma Impacts the Pregnant Body: An East Meets West Approach
Manifest Life is a trauma-informed prenatal yoga and healing series designed to inspire and empower pregnant people to heal, to be fully embodied along their pregnancy, birth and parenting journeys, and to be deeply connected to their beautiful humanness.
As pregnant people we are dynamic and powerful. The generative wisdom of our wombs, is truly the power source that sustains this Universe- the wellspring of life itself and a reflection of Divinity in this earthly realm.
A lot of pregnant people don’t recognize their power, don’t feel they have a voice and that it matters in their own process, and in fact feel disempowered in their pregnancy, silencing their desires, ignoring their intuition, and handing over their fate to others.
Birth can be an incredible experience, a spiritual and unifying experience, it can be an ecstatic experience, an empowering experience but it can be traumatic, and there is work we can do beforehand to set intentions, to heal, to have the best birth outcomes for us.
I believe each pregnant person gets to choose their own path but I want pregnant people to know that they do have choices, that their voice matters, that they are the authority of their own bodies.
Manifest Life is like therapy plus yoga, for pregnancy and birth and postpartum preparation. In addition to the eight, full-length, trauma-informed prenatal yoga video sequences, you get a therapeutic workbook to complete, filled with rich, detailed, journal prompts, reflective exercises that help us engage our minds, our bodies, and our souls as one.
My heart knows that the activities in the workbook are incredibly effective and incredibly healing because I’ve seen them create tremendous shifts within the minds, bodies and hearts of the people I serve, and they’ve been so profoundly healing for me personally.
I know that many pregnant people have had traumatic births in the past, or they’re embodying fear about birth or doubt about their body’s abilities. When we take time to heal our past traumas, metabolize traumatic memory from our bodies, examine our beliefs and values, reconnect to our sense of Self, and align with our soul’s purpose, we show up in our bodies and in our pregnancies so differently. When it comes to birth, arriving to the occasion intentionally, we can evolve and grow through the experience. When we live consciously and are devoted to our healing, we break a cycle of intergenerational suffering, rewriting the legacy for our future selves, our offspring and the generations to come.

Do I need props for this course?
No. If you have props (a blanket, block(s), and or bolster), Nityda will show you how to use them within the course but you can also use household items, like pillows, instead of yoga props.
How long does it take to complete this course?
This course it self-paced so it really depends on you. You may want to stick with on chapter of the therapuetic workbook and/or one asana class for a while before moving to the next. It is about what you need for your healing. You have lifetime access to the course.
Is this a prenatal yoga teacher training?
No. While a beautiful compliment to your prenatal yoga teacher training, this course is designed specifically for personal healing benefits and does not include modules on how to teach.
I am new to yoga. Can I take this series?
Yes! Nityda has designed this program to be appropriate for all experience levels. Nityda provides options for different stages of practice and ultimately, you will be guided to listen to what your body needs in the moment.
I am not pregnant, can I take this series?
Yes! Nityda created this healing course specifically for pregnant people. However, if you are trying to conceive or not pregnant you can definitely benefit from this series. Please be sure to consult your healthcare provider before attempting the physical yoga classes within this series. If you are early postpartum, please be mindful that the focus for early postpartum people (pelvic stability, core strength, etc) is different than that for pregnant people and so some of the practices in this series (like deep hip opening) will not be best for early postpartum people.
