"The Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training was excellent and comprehensive. The study guide is excellent. Janice's sensitivity
and awareness for the expectant mom's developing relationship with her unborn child is deeply intuitive. It was the
second time I attended that the full impact of what Janice is teaching sunk in. The teacher training has enriched all
levels of my teaching." D Humphries
"Janice is one of the kindest and wisest women I've ever met. She intimately understands the emotional, physical, and
spiritual experiences that I had during my own pregnancy and birth. I know Janice has been put here to help women
give birth in the most fulfilling and beautiful ways they can imagine." A de la Garza
"Our Prenatal Training was one of the most incredible weeks I have ever had. I am inspired! " C Lorenzo
Janice Clarfield enjoys an international reputation as an inspiring teacher who is recognized for her groundbreaking and
inspirational work with pregnant women, expectant fathers and the whole birthing journey. She is based in Vancouver where
she consults, teaches and maintains a private practice of yoga therapy, meditation and energy medicine.
Janice sits on the Prenatal Yoga Advisory Committee for Yoga Alliance, USA. She trains professionals to work with pregnant
women and expectant couples. She is the author of a study guide for prenatal yoga teachers and has recorded a CD for
pregnancy and birth preparation.
Janice is passionate about the next generation being birthed as wisely and compassionately as possible. She is interested in
creating optimum conditions for women and couples to empower themselves and diminish the necessity for medical
interventions. Couples access their own vast internal resources to make wise and healthy choices, however the birthing
culture is in their own community and however the birth unfolds.
Janice is known for her warm, gentle and creative approach to helping students enjoy authentically inhabiting their bodies.
The intention of the work is to deepen experience, understanding and enjoyment in the integration of physical, mental,
emotional, energetic and spiritual well-being. Her web site: www.urbanyoga.ca
Prenatal Yoga classes provide an opportunity for expectant women to develop greater vitality and awareness of their body
that is home for two, as well as to deepen their relationship with their baby. Gentle postures, breath work, vocal toning and
meditation are learned to cultivate flexibility, calm and confidence in preparation for labour and childbirth. Women are
empowered to enhance their ability to access greater relaxation, comfort, and enjoyment. Calm and flexibility ease the
birthing process, thus reducing pain and increasing the joy of giving birth. With Prenatal Yoga, women prepare for as active,
normal and natural a birth as possible. In the Prenatal Yoga classes, women experience the empowerment and beauty of this
transformational time in their lives. To be in the company of other pregnant women is a profound opportunity for sharing
common experiences while creating supportive community.
Couples Birth Preparation provides an opportunity for couples together to enhance awareness of and confidence in
pregnancy, labour and birth. Through discussion, gentle postures, breath work, vocal toning, meditation and massage,
couples cultivate greater relaxation, understanding and enjoyment for childbearing. Couples practice postures together that
are both beneficial and enjoyable during pregnancy and during labour. Partners feel more connected to the unborn baby. The
presence and encouragement of a woman’s partner is a powerful aid to labour and delivery. Partners develop greater
understanding to support the birthing mom with confidence and sensitivity.
