Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

85 Hour Yoga Alliance Approved 

Brianne Barrett guides prenatal yoga teacher trainees her experience from both leading trainings and prenatal classes, her own experience of being a mother, along with a background in supporting expecting mothers with labor doula and lactation education support.  This training stands above the rest with the level of depth of study in the field of prenatal yoga through the 3 trimesters of pregnancy and the vital 3 months following labor, also considered the "4th trimester". Students are thoroughly instructed in the anatomy and physiology of the pregnant mother's changing body so that they can safely guide her in yoga asanas throughout her pregnancy. This method also combines the very important aspect of encouraging the developing bond between Mother and baby.

Because expecting moms often attend traditional yoga classes, every yoga instructor should consider this training.  Other non-yoga instructors are welcome to register for this program if they have an interest and are also a birth professional, a mother or mother-to-be, or similar.   
If you are a mother, a health care professional, a labor doula, or a yoga instructor this training will give you all the tools you need in understanding and teaching prenatal yoga.  Attendees of this training will be fully certified at the end of the course and ready to help expecting mother’s have their best pregnancy.  This training is Yoga Alliance approved and follows their standards.
