Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training

Reconnecting women to their innate feminine power and body wisdom

We’ve developed our Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Course for yoga teachers, midwives, fitness professionals, NCT teachers, childbirth educators, healthcare professionals and keen yogis who would like to support the pregnant women they work with through Pregnancy Yoga.

Many of our students find getting to face to face training courses difficult due to their family commitments, so you’ll study our Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training course entirely online with support from a personal tutor. This gives you the flexibility to get the Pregnancy Yoga qualification you need in your time and at your pace.

This Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training is a comprehensive course that will enable you to teach safely and knowledgeably.

When you have completed the course, you’ll have a thorough understanding of Pregnancy Yoga and will have teaching experience, as well as having prepared marketing materials and course and class plans as part of the course assignments. You’ll also receive a Certificate in Pregnancy Yoga Teaching and a listing in our Teacher Directory.

Our Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Course is an 85 hour course with a 9 month time limit (although with dedication many of our students complete it more quickly). During the course, you’ll be supported by an experienced and deeply kind personal tutor Lara Heppell who will mark your assignments, review your class plans and act as your mentor throughout the course. You’ll also receive ongoing aftercare and access to our supportive private Facebook group.

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

Teaching yoga to pregnant women is a real joy. It’s a wonderful opportunity to support women in a special juncture of their lives. However it does require specialist knowledge so your pupils are safe and they feel in good hands.Pregnancy is a time of change for many women, however for others it can be a time of discomfort and a battle against physical limitations. As a teacher you’ll be working with these fluctuating levels of energy and emotions.

It has been a pleasure studying this wonderful course. It is not always easy but it is so much more rewarding … You have to be very motivated as you are alone with your computer and your books. At first I had a more aggressive timeframe to complete this training, but with 3 children at home including a new-born it was not that simple to maintain the paths.

“I’m really happy with the grade and have enjoyed all the assignments. It’s a good qualification because you end up ready to start straight away from marketing to lesson plans.”

“For me Yoga is self-love in action and helps me find balance in a busy world, and as mum to a very active son. I’m obsessed with my cycle, the seasons and the ways in which we can work more closely with ourselves and nature to bring more awareness, compassion and balance into our lives.”
