Discover your capacity to provide purposeful and powerful support to your students during and after pregnancy!

Pregnancy and the postpartum period are dynamic transitions. Learn how to harness yoga’s potent tools and champion your students in realizing their strengths and their capacities, within a supportive community. This comprehensive and in-depth study of how prenatal yoga can increase self-confidence and self-care works easily with your schedule, prepares you for teaching prenatal students, and strengthens your teaching skills. In addition, a full weekend dedicated to exploring how our yoga spaces can be more trauma-informed and inclusive can help you generate supportive communities for all of your students.

Whether you wish to teach prenatal yoga classes, hope to demystify pregnancy and the postpartum journey, or seek a powerful complement to an existing skill-set, this 85-hour training supports your self-growth and enhances your teaching toolkit.
In this training you’ll:
• Learn how to ease the discomforts and challenges that come with pregnancy and postpartum healing.
• Use mindfulness, breathwork, and yoga in support of labor, childbirth, and parenting.
• Increase your understanding of human anatomy, especially the pelvis, psoas, and pelvic floor.
• Gain tools for supporting populations undergoing major changes, including pregnancy, pregnancy loss, childbirth, and parenting.
• Strengthen your ability to modify your yoga classes, teach sensitively and confidently, and apply what you’ve learned.
Yoga instructors with a 200-hour certificate will be eligible to register as Certified Prenatal Yoga Teachers through Yoga Alliance upon completion of this training. The training is also beneficial for birth workers or life coaches who are looking for potent tools to support your clients.
This program includes all five weekends, ten hours of observation (independent of training weekends), and a final project.
Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training tuition includes a training manual and course materials.
