Yoga Alliance UK Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher
50 Hour Training Accredited Yoga Alliance Professionals
This course is for qualified yoga teachers who have a calling to work with mums, bumps & babies.
It is also open to trainees who are working towards their L3 diploma or 200 hour certificates.
This course will also allow you to confidently teach pregnant women safely & insured, in your regular classes. The real prerequisite is to be able to teach yoga to bodies that don’t feel like yours.
Having had your own children or being female is not a necessity but being able to listen & have empathy for the body’s multiple changes & a real desire to alleviate the aches & pains of building a baby are.
During course you will be able to book 1-2-1 progress meetings with the course tutor at the studio or on zoom, you'll be able to meet pregnant students & invite them to attend your practice classes. The relationships you make on the course will be long-lasting, as will the support.
The teaching environment is relaxed & non-judgemental, no one way of birthing or parenting is proliferated. The objective of the course is to produce professional yoga teachers who teach interesting yoga & create an enduring support system for families, through gentle, sensible movement, breathing & connection to each other.
