About Yoga Mama
Yoga Mama is a Yoga Teaching School and studio located in the heart of Putney, south-west London. Founded by Cherie Lathey, the yoga training school runs online Pregnancy and Children’s Yoga Teacher Training courses, as well as CPD workshops for qualified yoga teachers and health professionals. 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 regular 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 school has helped more than 300 qualified yoga teachers and select healthcare professionals accomplish their dream of qualifying to teach yoga to pregnant women.
ABOUT OUR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMME
Yoga Mama runs online Pregnancy Yoga and Children’s yoga teacher training courses which are approved by Yoga Alliance Professionals. Courses are intensive, spread over two full weekends. 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.

Our classes are bespoke, which allows us to provide our students with individual attention while also promoting a sense of community. We deliberately keep our class numbers small, with an average of between 6 and 12 per class. In addition to this, we also offer 1:1 private tuition both in studio and online.
