Are you a yoga teacher with a passion for working with Pregnant women and New Mums? Or do you just want to better understand how to support pregnant women in a general yoga class?

Having worked with thousands of pregnant women and new mums all over Sydney, we know a thing or two about keeping women active and healthy during and after their pregnancy. We are proud to call ourselves Sydney’s Pregnancy Yoga Experts.

We have two offerings to support Yoga Teachers in working with Pregnant women:

Supporting Pregnant Clients in a General Yoga Class – 3 hour workshop

Designed for yoga teachers who don’t necessarily want to teach prenatal yoga classes, but rather simply want a better understanding of how to support a pregnant woman when she attends a general yoga class. You will learn:

  • Benefits of yoga during pregnancy
  • Questions you need to ask a pregnant woman
  • Anatomy and physiology of pregnancy
  • Contra-indicated asana and pranayama
  • Common pregnancy conditions and how yoga can help
  • How to modify class plans so the rest of the students don’t even realise they’re doing a prenatal-friendly routine!

This 3 hour workshop costs just $129 and includes a detailed manual. Book your spot here.

Upcoming dates: 6 February 2021

Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training – 50 hour Course

Designed for yoga teachers who want to teach prenatal and postnatal/mums and bubs yoga classes. Our 50 hour teacher training is in-depth and very practical. We focus on giving you the skills and confidence to teach pregnant women and new mums, as well as the theory. Our past teacher trainees always comment that the mentoring which comes with the course is invaluable.

We offer prenatal classes all over Sydney and are always looking for great teachers to join our team. Many of our graduates go on to become our next generation of permanent or cover teachers!
