Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training

Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Mama


Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training With Yoga Mama

Next course: 11 – 13 & 25 – 27 November 2016

Pregnancy is a natural process and should be as uncomplicated as possible. The healthier and more conscious women are during this time, the greater the likelihood that they will enjoy the experience of pregnancy and giving birth.

About the course

The Yoga Mama Pregnancy Yoga Training Programme has been designed 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, enabling them to take from their own strengths and embrace their innate ability to care for themselves and their baby from pregnancy into motherhood. Feeling at ease with their body and emotions, they will be better equipped to make well-informed choices throughout their pregnancy and when giving birth.

Full details about the course are below.

This is an 80-hour course, accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals, with a maximum of 15 students per class. There will be six full days of classes, divided over two weekends. Topics that will be covered are:

  • Asana, pranayama (breathing and relaxation techniques)
  • Sequencing pre and postnatal classes
  • The dos and don’ts of pregnancy yoga
  • Propping and assisting pregnant students
  • Pre and postnatal anatomy for yoga
  • Common ailments associated with pregnancy
  • Setting up classes for pregnant students

We create an environment that promotes dynamic and interactive learning from the start, with positive feedback, individual attention and support. Each session reflects a specific content focus and, therefore, students must attend all sessions in order to qualify to teach pregnancy yoga. Once you have completed the course we strongly advise you to commence teaching as soon as possible in order to cement the connection to what you have learnt during the course.


The objective of the course is:

  • To widen qualified yoga teachers’ expertise and complement trained professionals who already support women during pregnancy and birth.
  • To present a safe, conscious, healthy approach to yoga during pregnancy, and how to teach it effectively.

The course is suitable for both existing yoga teachers who already hold a yoga teaching qualification and trainee teachers. We may also consider applications from midwives and health professionals who have a strong personal yoga practice.


Assessment on the course is ongoing and includes:

  • Watching taught classes and writing up observations
  • Submitting a satisfactory class plan designed especially for pregnant women
  • Teaching a class that will be observed and assessed by the course tutors

Students are expected to:

  • Attend and participate in all classes in the schedule. If a session is missed, it must be retaken at a later date in order to qualify to teach pregnancy yoga.
  • Successfully complete all assessments

Yoga Mama is a Yoga Alliance Professionals training school

Where in London are you most likely to have to weave between kids on scooters and navigate through a sea of Bugaboos? A top contender must be SW15, the home of more expectant mummies than you can shake a stick at (not something we’d recommend). So, where better to launch an iPhone application exclusively designed for pregnant women? Well that’s exactly what Cherie Lathey of Yoga Mama has done. By teaming up with Modu Technologies, Cherie has developed a prenatal yoga iPhone application which comprehensively takes you through a series of poses, meditations and common problem areas, culminating in structured classes.

So, why prenatal yoga? It is well known that yoga increases flexibility, strength and stamina, alongside promoting and manifesting feelings of peace, calm and happiness. Furthermore, Cherie leads you to begin a loving, nurturing relationship with your baby. Together these physical and emotional attributes encourage women to flourish in pregnancy, prepare for strong, calm labour and establish a bond with her baby long before the birth. This will no doubt be the must-have app for any mother-to-be.
