ABOUT YOGA MAMA
The Yoga Mama Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training School is in the heart of Putney, south-west London. Founded by Cherie Lathey, the school runs pregnancy yoga teacher training courses, as well as postnatal and fertility yoga CPD workshops.
Yoga Mama does not offer general yoga teacher training courses. Instead, we specialise in women’s health and have a team of professionals that includes: a women’s health physiotherapist, midwife, fertility doctor, cranial osteopath and yoga teachers. The courses and workshops we provide are primarily for qualified yoga teachers. However, in some instances, applications from other healthcare professionals who have a strong yoga practice may also be considered.
In recent times, pregnancy yoga has witnessed a growth in popularity. Here at Yoga Mama, we strongly believe in the health benefits that practising yoga during pregnancy has to offer. This belief is also held by many doctors and other health professionals. In order to share their insight with other yoga teachers, Yoga Mama was awarded Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training School status from Yoga Alliance Professionals. Since opening its doors, the Yoga Mama Pregnancy Teacher Training School has helped more than 100 qualified yoga teachers and select healthcare professionals accomplish their dream of qualifying to teach yoga to pregnant women.
ABOUT OUR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMME
The Yoga Mama Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training course is an intensive 80-hour programme. The focus of the course is to teach women how to overcome the difficulties that they may encounter during pregnancy. Professionals from different areas will show how to create a supportive environment for pregnant women. This enables them to take from their own strengths and also embrace their innate ability to care for themselves and their baby from pregnancy into motherhood. Feeling at ease with their body and emotions, allows them to make well-informed choices throughout their pregnancy and when giving birth.
As Yoga Mama expands both in the UK and internationally, we have created a pregnancy yoga teacher directory. This will allow women to find a registered Yoga Mama pregnancy yoga teacher in their area.
Yoga Mama Wellness runs a wide variety of general, pregnancy and postnatal yoga, Pilates and tai chi classes in its Putney studio. There are classes to suit the needs of everyone. We also offer rehab classes for those with injuries or looking to return to exercise.
