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. In addition to this, we also run postnatal, fertility and birth preparation yoga workshops for qualified yoga teachers.
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 65-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.
Yoga Baba is an independent organic clothing company for babies. In collaboration with a London artist and yogi, we have produced our own unique range of baby clothing made from 100% organic cotton. These feature illustrated prints inspired by yoga and nature.
The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy is part of London’s largest NHS and Private Medical Treatment Facility. It provides a complete cycle of care, from the treatment of pain and injury rehabilitation to lifestyle changes, preventative exercise and mind-body well-being.
Really enjoyed it, I feel confident and excited to teach pregnant women.
I highly recommend this pregnancy yoga teacher training course.Donna Noble
The amount of knowledge gained I really feel I can lead a well-structured class and very safely.
The environment and all the teachers were highly nurturing and had a wealth of knowledge they were happy to share. I'm so pleased I chose to take this course. It has helped me feel more confident about teaching but also the birth of my first baby.
I thought the course was great overall and am really looking forward to starting my classes. Thank you!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the course and the wealth of valuable knowledge and personal experience of the teachers. Loved it! Thank you so much.
