Welcome to The Yoga of Pregnancy: a live online prenatal teacher training

Why I believe prenatal teacher training is a gift for every yoga teacher

Or maybe you just feel a little nervous when a pregnant woman walks into your class, and you want to feel more confident teaching yoga to pregnant students…

OR, you might be a mom who wants to share the gift of prenatal yoga wth other moms – or make sure they have the guidance and inspiration you didn’t have?

Take it! You will not regret it!


The Yoga of Pregnancy deepened my teaching techniques. I learned about bringing space, earth, water, fire, and air in the body, mind, and heart.

Based on this I can teach easily. It’s fun!

Vicki W.

I really enjoyed the prenatal yoga training. It was very practical and spiritual at the same time.

I loved that it touched on the fundamentals of alignment and how to intertwine with theming.

Sara M.

Truly, you are a gift. Your insight, knowledge, wisdom and pure love for the work flows through in a tremendously positive way.

It was a wonderful training and I feel I have learned so much that I can take out into the world with me and share.

I highly recommend Jessica’s prenatal training.

Her expertise and professionalism, combined with her compassion and experience, makes for an incredible learning experience for teachers, but also for pregnant women with advanced yoga practices.

Sharon O.

My classes have a new flow of energy this week from this process!

Maggie B.

Thanks again for such a great teacher training.

It was so wonderful to see both of my passions, yoga and Obstetrics, come to life together. I learned a great deal from you!

Zorayda Alvair, MD, OB/Gyn

This training felt like it went above and beyond. There is way more to prenatal yoga than just the do’s and don’ts.

Jessica is an amazing instructor that has put a lot of thought and care into the program.

Amber T.

I just taught my first prenatal workshop and I wasn’t nervous at all.

I told my husband I felt sooo prepared! It went really well and I loved it.

Amber T

The Yoga of Pregnancy is a wonderful course that you will benefit from it whether you are pregnant or not. I strongly recommend it.

If you have any questions regarding the poses or what it is being taught in the course the instructor really dives in so you can get a better understanding of it.

Belinda S.

I cannot wait to speak with moms to be and get a feel for how their pregnancy is going and share some helpful tips that I learned.

Jess did an amazing job with the online teaching. I loved it!

Alyssa W.

This is a fun training! Thanks Jess!

Cindy F.

I incorporate the poses we learned into my normal vinyasa classes and my students love them!

I am so beyond excited to be on this journey with you and cannot wait to teach the mommas!


I loved your joy, your passion, your knowledge.

I really appreciated how you commented on our teachings .

You were respectful, positive and uplifting.


I now have a road map for creating a full prenatal class, vs. just picking and choosing poses I think pregnant students can do comfortably.

I just want to express gratitude again. Deep bows!

Lindsay B.

I have truly enjoyed the training so much and can’t wait to start teaching prenatal.

I tried to use our new cues in the regular class that I taught this morning and using them felt great!
