Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Course Objective

Prenatal Yoga Training Teacher

A certificate programme accredited by the Yoga Alliance, this Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher’s Training Course provides an excellent opportunity to expand your skills on teaching a specific group of students – pregnant women. The prenatal YTT course guides one to develop the inner teacher within you and discover that everything we need is already within us. This prenatal yoga teacher training course aims to guide you on how to use the practices as a tool for inner and outer transformation.

Prenatal YTT

The Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training Course is intended to give better and deeper insight into the applications of Yogic practices and their benefits on pre and post-natal students. Most of the times students coming to prenatal yoga classes know that yoga will help them through their pregnancy, labour and beyond. By equipping oneself with a better understanding of the bodily changes over the trimesters and possible complications of pregnancy.

Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Practices

This course will cover fundamental understanding of the pregnant body and how to sequence a prenatal yoga practice. The prenatal yoga teacher training course also covers the yogic perspective of pregnancy and how to use yogic tools to prepare oneself during the transitional phase of pregnancy and beyond. Yoga teachers are able to be more sensitive and mindful of pregnant students by offering appropriate modifications as and when needed to make the practice suitable and comfortable.

Students who are interested in participating should bear in mind that this will be a physically and emotionally demanding programme. It will require a strong commitment and personal sacrifice, as well as the support of the student’s primary support network. We emphasise that this programme may not be for everyone.

Interested students must:

  • Have a deep desire to learn and personally explore the deeper dimensions of yoga
  • No need for minimum yoga practice or prior experience but willingness to put in the extra effort
  • Be free of major injuries going into the programme
  • Have an open mind
  • Be willing to forgo most other personal or professional commitments for the duration of the programme

Graduates of our programme can register as a RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) if they have successfully completed both a 200-hour yoga teacher training and an 85-hour prenatal yoga training—in either order—that are registered with Yoga Alliance. Applicants must submit 30 teaching hours in prenatal yoga which must be performed after completing the training with a RPYS (Registered Prenatal Yoga School). Becoming a RPYT means having a higher profile and gaining international recognition as a yoga teacher, attributes that many hiring studios look for.

Assessment & Practicum
The 85 Hr Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training is based on continuous assessment, project and conduct. Students will be given take-home assignments.
