Why complete pregnancy yoga teacher training with Newcastle Yoga School?
Here at Newcastle Yoga School, we have a passion for using yoga to support pregnant women and empowering yoga teachers to feel confident that they can safely accommodate the changing pregnant body in their classes.
We believe that pregnancy yoga is a style of yoga all by itself, with different aims and objectives. During the pregnancy yoga teacher training course, you will learn how to create and teach safe and supportive pregnancy yoga classes and accommodate pregnant women.
Our pregnancy yoga teacher training course has an emphasis on the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy. You will learn how yoga can help with the different stages of pregnancy, from the prenatal period, through to the birth and post-natal time.
As with all our yoga teacher training courses, we will also look at the real-world realities of setting up classes. You will receive two tutorials after the course finishes to support you when you’re set up and teaching yoga on your own.
Is a pregnancy yoga teacher training course suitable for me?
This is a prenatal yoga teacher training course.
It’s suitable for yoga teachers who want to teach pregnant women attending their general or restorative yoga classes, as well as yoga teachers who want to offer pregnancy yoga specific classes or online courses.
