Learn to share the calming, strengthening and stress relieving benefits of yoga with those who need it most…superhero mamas to be! While pregnancy is a sacred and beautiful time, let’s be honest, it can also be uncomfortable, exhausting and at times scary. The body is growing, hormones are flowing and you never quite know what to expect around the corner.
Being a prenatal yoga teacher is so much more than teaching yoga. You have the honor of holding space for a group of women moving through the various phases of pregnancy and supporting them in what they need for their self-care and to help them nurture our new generations.
Prenatal Yoga Training is a wonderful opportunity to add something new to your teaching or professional toolbox and truly empower expecting mothers! Prenatal yoga teachers are hard to come by and in demand so if you are considering or even confident in your desire to share this aspect of yoga with others or simply want to learn more for your own personal needs, be sure to join us!
You Will Learn:
- Basic postures for different stages of pregnancy
- Modifications for traditional postures that enable clients to adapt their existing yoga practice
- Sequencing pre-natal classes
- Breathing tools for practice, labor and beyond
- Hands on adjustments specific to assisting pregnant clients
- Ideas and tools for supporting your clients through their postnatal care and return to regular practice
- How to create a strong and supportive community in and develop the specialized niche for pre- and post-natal classes
Note: you do not have to be a current yoga teacher or have had previous teacher training experience to take this training – it is also a valuable and enriching experience for those who may work with pregnant women in other capacities.

“Each section of the course was thought through and taught in a manner that was easy to digest. The dynamics between Mandeep and Kara and how they expanded off each other was incredible. They took the time to make sure any questions we had were answered and provided practice opportunities to teach a PreNatal class to our peers.”
“I enjoyed learning about the body during pregnancy and through labor/delivery. It was interesting to learn how yoga can help prepare us for labor. I loved the prenatal classes we got to experience. I also really loved getting to listen to a doula speak about delivery.”
