Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training

This training is for any woman willing to have an extraordinary experience. Yoga teachers, moms- to- be, mothers, doulas, midwives… You are all welcome!

This is a beautiful journey to empowerment and self-discovery. A transformative Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Flow Training that will teach you how to support pregnant women through their magic path to motherhood and to enjoy a conscious, respected and peaceful birth of their babies. The type of yoga taught is based on dynamic sequences with a Vinyasa flow base.

 If you want to learn how to teach a safe, creative & full movement prenatal yoga practice, this is a great opportunity.

This immersion will prepare students to work with the special needs of prenatal and postnatal students. You will learn the art of transmitting the ancient philosophy of yoga to pregnant women, and how to support and inspire them safely and with awareness.

The program covers yoga during pregnancy and yoga during postpartum.

The training is based on a dynamic-flow yoga designed specially for pregnant women to keep them agile, flexible and strong both physically and mentally.
All postures are linked through breathing and not only help women to connect with their femininity, their sensuality and power, but also they prevent common pregnancy discomforts that might appear right from the beginning. This type of yoga also allows women to stay strong inside and out so they can face this new stage of life full of health and wellbeing.
