Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Q and A’s

Q – Will this course certify me as a Prenatal Yoga teacher through the Yoga Alliance?
A –  No.  The Yoga Alliance has now changed its requirements to 85 hours for Prenatal Yoga. The Yoga Alliance is not a certification body, they are only a teacher/school registry. Schools, nor teachers are certified by Yoga Alliance

Q – Will this course teach me everything I need to know to teach Prenatal Yoga to the pregnant population and how to accommodate that “one lone” pregnant woman who walks into my mixed levels class?
A – Yes. If you are a 200 hr Yoga teacher yes it will.

Q – Does this course cover all of the latest applications of both Prenatal and Postnatal yoga?
A – Yes.

Q – Can I use the hours spent in this course towards Continuing Education units for the Yoga Alliance?
A – Yes.

Q – Does this training come with a certificate?
A – Yes

Q – How often will you be doing these trainings?
A – Monthly – (in my space at 245 E Broadway in Mount Pleasant). Email me to inquire / get on a waiting list.

Q – Will I add to my skill set as a teacher even if I don’t specialize, or plan on teaching Prenatal yoga?
A – Yes absolutely.  Learning how to teach Prenatal yoga will greatly add to the skill set of a teacher in many ways. You will learn modifications, contraindications and breathing practices that are safe and helpful for many conditions that are not only found in the pregnant/postpartum population.

Q – Will this training cover “safe and effective core work/ diastasis recti and pelvic floor health”?
A -Yes it will. Many people have an outdated notion of what the “core” really is. This training has a comprehensive segment on the core, pelvic floor, and possible dysfunction, rehab and resources.

Yoga teachers who take this training will have the skills/know how to teach prenatal yoga afterwards or accommodate the pregnant student (s) who wander into their class and it will definitely remove the fear of teaching pregnant women.
