Teacher Training

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

You don’t necessarily want to teach prenatal yoga classes,
but you DO want a better understanding of how to
support a pregnant woman when she attends
your general yoga classes. You’ll 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.

Upcoming dates: To be announced

"I have attended Caroline's workshop on "Supporting Pregnant Clients in a General Yoga Class" and it was very insightful! This short 3-hour format was very practical and allowed me to feel much more confident to teach and include pregnant women in my classes. Caroline is very knowledgeable on the topic, and accessible to answer everyone's questions. Would recommend to anyone who doesn't want (yet) to do a full Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training!"

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. 

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!

I loved completing my prenatal teacher training with Caroline at Mother Nurture Yoga.

She was a fountain of knowledge and the course was in-depth and useful with a lot of good resources.

I feel far more comfortable and excited to teach yoga to pregnant women.

I absolutely loved the training with Caroline, I learnt everything that was required, the content was clear, concise and straightforward, it was great to have a clear manual... The atmosphere and interactive approach aid the absorption of the new information. I enjoyed the tests and ability to observe the classes. All in all, I felt that I was trained well and ready to take on new classes right away.
