Prenatal Yoga

Our Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training will empower you to lead prenatal and postnatal students through a safe, effective basic yoga practice, whether in a prenatal or post-partum class or incorporated into your general yoga class. This program does not teach advanced poses. These are modifications of basic postures, as most prenatal students need to focus on self-care and connection with their baby more than practicing advanced postures.

Our Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training course is available as an online course, which you may start anytime. We also offer it as a live course on occasion.
This course (online or live) is designed to provide foundational knowledge and CEC’s for Yoga Alliance RYT’s. Advanced courses are available from several providers and will usually be priced at around $400-$600, so this low cost class is for CEC’s and a foundational knowledge – not for advanced training, as we could not provide that level of training for such a low cost.

In Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, you’ll learn:

  • Prenatal Yoga Benefits
  • Stages of Pregnancy
  • Pose Breakdown for 21 Asanas
  • Explanation of 3 Specific Pranayamas
  • Anatomy of Pregnancy by Trimester
  • Prenatal Sequences
  • Prenatal Precautions
  • Prenatal Students in Non-Prenatal Classes
  • Prenatal Essential Safety (AGOC Guidelines)
  • Birth and Post-Natal Yoga
  • Prenatal Resources for Further Study

FAQ
How long do I have to complete the course and what if I need longer?

You have 12 months to complete the course. If you go over this time, you’ll need to apply for an extension. There is a fee for extending the course.

What is the refund policy?

There are no refunds on any continuing education courses unless we cancel the course. This is because we make a decision as to whether or not to hold a course based upon enrollment. Once we are committed, we incur expenses.

For distance study courses, there are no refunds. Once someone has the materials, we can’t refund fees because we have upheld our commitment by providing the learning materials.

For live RYT courses, there is a three (3) day (72 hour) cancellation period. Once a student enrollment form is signed, a student may make a written refund request within 3 days (72 hours) and 100% of funds paid shall be returned. All refund requests must be delivered in writing to the school. The postmark shall serve as the refund time. If the request is delivered by hand, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure he/she has a written receipt showing the date and time the request was received.  Other live RYT course refund policy is outlined below.

18 Hours: If a refund is requested within the first 20 live contact hours of 200 total hours, the student is eligible for a 50% refund, less a $150 administrative fee.

More than 18 Hours: No refunds are granted. However, if circumstances warrant, we may offer a student an opportunity to use some of their funds toward another training date. For example, if a student becomes ill or has a family emergency, we will work with the student on a case by case basis. In these situations, we strive to find a solution that is fair to the student and our business.

If we cancel any class, students will receive a 100% refund.
