Learn to empower women through the childbearing year with an in-depth prenatal training that is functional, modern and relatable.
Learn so much more than just how to teach prenatal yoga and empower mamas through the childbearing year and beyond. This training is broken into 4 separate modules/weekends; all modules must be completed in order to register for the Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) designation with the Yoga Alliance.
The Unfold Mama Prenatal Teacher Training program is intensive, intimate (capped at 10) and detailed. The time commitment is well worth the empowering and life changing knowledge you will gain.
This training is designed for teachers, midwives, doulas and other health professionals who are interested in teaching yoga to mamas. Ideally participants would have completed a 200-hour basic teacher training or have at least 2 years of yoga experience. All participants should have a working knowledge of basic alignment principles and anatomy. Please note that the training will not cover basic yoga poses, or philosophy.
