Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training (RPYT)

Why I Believe Every Yoga Teacher and Birth Practitioner Will Benefit from Prenatal Teacher Training

Do you feel a bit nervous when you have a pregnant woman in your class? Or maybe you aren’t teaching yet, but you’re drawn to have your own “Mama Circle” and it feels scary.

The truth is, there’s a lot of fear around pregnancy. It was only in 2002 that the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ACOG) said it was ok for pregnant women to exercise daily.

And yet, pregnant women eventualy carry the weight of a bowling ball – inside and out. We need our strength more than ever during this time. Plus, aches and pains abound, and many postpartm issues (like diastisis recti) can be prevented with gentle, safe, effective prenatal core work.  

With the right guidance and support, we can all be standing at the doorway for mamas everywhere, saying “Welcome.”

I took this training to get more knowledge about appropriate poses for pregnant women. I got a lot more… the Ma Yoga principles are golden and I can use this knowledge for every type of yoga class and even apply them to my own personal life.

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 weekend and I feel I have learned so much that I can take out into the world with me and share.

I really enjoyed the prenatal yoga workshop. 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.

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!

I 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.

Overview of The Yoga of Pregnancy

Let’s welcome each other and dive right into our beliefs and fears around birth. We’ll have a general Q&A with whatever comes up, and get to know each other a bit. Then, enjoy a prenatal yoga practice for yourself with the how’s and why’s as we move and breathe.

Travel Through the Trimesters

Journey through the physiological and psychological changes that arise throughout the trimesters, using the Ma Yoga alignment principles as your guide. Explore prenatal variations of regular yoga poses and sequencing, and learn to adjust poses physically and energetically for each trimester.

Create Inspiring Prenatal Yoga Classes

Learn to use themes to deepen your students’ experience throughout class. You’ll create a theme related to pregnancy, labor, or motherhood, and for homework, practice weaving it through your teaching of a single pose. Next time – we’ll teach each other a prenatal yoga practice you will love!
