PRENATAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

Yoga Alliance 85-hour Prenatal Yoga Registered Training
with Beth Kruger

The Women’s Room Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Program prepares yoga teachers to teach today’s health conscious and active expecting mamas.

This 85-hour training program combines childbirth education with yoga, providing women the tools they need for an empowering pregnancy and labor. Women’s Room Prenatal YTT encourages women to become advocates for themselves, for their birth experiences, and for their babies.  The teacher-training program is grounded in research of best practices for pregnancy, labor, and birth.

Explore how yoga can relieve common discomforts of pregnancy, help with pain management during labor, and accelerate recovery after birth. Delve into the culture of birth and learn how to weave concepts of childbirth education into prenatal yoga classes.

The 85 hours of training includes in-person instruction, observation of ten Women’s Room prenatal yoga classes taught by Beth, practice teaching, two private mentoring sessions, and self-study reading and writing assignments.

In-person instruction will take place as weekend workshops of nine hours each over the course of two separate modules. The weekend workshops will explore in detail the intricacies of teaching to a population of childbearing women.

Teachers must attend all classes in both modules and complete all observation hours by the end of the training to receive a certificate of completion.

  • Anatomy and Physiology of Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Postnatal.
