85 hour pregnancy & postnatal yoga teacher training

overview

We are excited to present our 85 hour Pregnancy & Post-Natal Yoga teacher training, Yoga Alliance certified.

We’ve been guided & inspired by our core values of accessibility, empowerment and love of knowledge. ​

Our Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training is grounded in evidence, celebrates all bodies & pregnancies, and empowers students and teachers to be integrated, active and intentional.

We can’t wait to bring Nourish Yoga Training’s signature approach to making yoga inclusive and person-centred to the important area of pregnancy yoga and post-natal yoga.

In this Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training, the foundation of a safe understanding of alignment and asana during pregnancy is enhanced by exploring restorative yoga, pranayama, meditation, ethics & philosophy, all geared towards pregnancy & birth.

course outline

We’re committed to making the course content digestible, structured and accessible. By spreading it out you’ve got plenty of time to practice & integrate the teachings in between sessions, allowing you to explore questions that arise, and receive lots of support guidance and feedback.

We believe there’s no better way to learn than through experience, which means that you’ll be teaching from as early as possible. Teaching practice will become more autonomous and independent as the course progresses, ensuring that you graduate feeling confident and ready to teach!

We’ve structured lessons to move through each trimester and the postnatal period as the course progresses, meaning you encounter knowledge sequentially and intuitively. 

Our Summer 2020 Online training runs 10am-1pm, 3pm-6pm on 14 & 15 August; 28 & 29 August; 4 & 5 September; 11 & 12 September; 18 & 19 September; 25 & 26 September.

Delivered via Zoom. Live attendance is preferred and encouraged, however sessions will be recorded and catch up available. All  catch up sessions must be completed by 31 December 2020. Final teaching practice MUST be attended live.

"Yoga Quota’s comprehensive training looks at the changing anatomy of pregnant people and its relation to the practice of modern yoga (asana, breathing exercise, and meditation). Harriet’s commitment in encouraging trainees to empower their students in mind and spirits forms the foundation upon which the inclusive teaching method is developed. I definitely would recommend it to any yoga teacher who is interested in taking a pregnancy teacher training."

"I was really thrilled with this training. The quality of the teaching was very high - the course was thoughtfully and carefully put together and I felt that it covered all the topics required, and more! The instructor was very knowledgeable and passionate about the topic, and I felt excited every day to go and learn from her. It was also great to hear from guest teachers, including a midwife and active birth teacher. The atmosphere was so supportive and friendly, with lots of space for discussion and questions. I feel confident, encouraged and empowered to teach pregnancy yoga, and I feel that this training has also benefited my teaching to non-pregnant students."
