85HR Prenatal Teacher Training 2018/2019

Throughout UB's prenatal yoga teacher training program you'll learn to effectively guide pregnant students in safe and constructive yoga techniques specific to pregnancy and childbirth. Stacy will lead you in exploring the specific needs of pregnant yoga students, how yoga can benefit expectant mothers, as well as yoga, breathing, and meditation for comfort during labor and birth and much more.  This special course is appropriate for pregnant mothers, midwives, doulas, doctors, and health and childbirth educators in addition to yoga instructors.   Program topics and activities:

  • Yoga postures and breathing techniques safe for pregnancy
  • Posture modifications for expectant mothers in open classes
  • The 3 trimesters and modifications for each
  • Benefits of yoga during pregnancy and birth
  • Stages of labor and birth and yoga, breathing, and meditation techniques for comfort
  • Powerful partner postures that help relieve pregnancy discomforts and deepen connection
  • Skeletal, muscular, nervous, and hormonal changes that may affect practice
  • Modifications for common pregnancy discomforts and medical conditions
  • Practice teaching and final exam
Nine additional contact hours will be accrued by observing six 90-minute prenatal classes led by Stacy (or other approved RPYTs). These observations can take place before, during, or after the training and need to be completed in order to receive a certificate..

After completing the 85 hour training, you will receive your certificate of completion from Urban Breath. Yoga Alliance requires that you teach a minimum of 30 hours of Prenatal Yoga before you apply to become a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher.

"This is such a wonderful training program. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn techniques for best navigating the mental and physical challenges of pregnancy and childbirth, whether they are an aspiring prenatal yoga teacher, mom-to-be, doctor, doula or midwife -- really, anyone. 

The prenatal and postnatal period is such a transformative time for most women. This training covers all of the physical changes, and also talks about the emotional transition many individuals go through, and shows how yoga can empower and soothe and best prepare the mom-to-be for all of the experiences she will encounter during pregnancy and childbirth. With in-depth instruction on anatomy and the birthing process, as well as technical instruction on sequencing and modifications for each trimester and common pregnancy ailments, trainees will walk away amazed at how much they learned in an 85-hour format. As a yoga instructor and mom who regularly took prenatal classes through pregnancy, I certainly was impressed. I'd have to believe this is one of the best prenatal training programs in the region."  -Jenn M.
 
"My prenatal training experience with Stacy was wonderful! Stacy's passion for yoga, pregnancy, & childbirth are what make this class so special. I learned so much and now feel confident in my ability to teach prenatal yoga students and show them ways to adapt their yoga practice throughout their pregnancy. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in prenatal yoga!"  - Rachel C.
Instructor Stacy Broussard, E-RYT 200, RPYT

Stacy has been teaching yoga since 2006, after completing a month-long 200-hour training through the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja, Mexico. She teaches, in an intuitive and calm manner,  a flowing hatha style, with a focus on safe physical alignment, strength, and balance. After the birth of her first child in 2009, Stacy became certified to teach pre and postnatal yoga and has since taught well over 500 hours of prenatal, postnatal, mother-baby, and prenatal partner yoga classes. As well, she is certified in hypnosis for birthing and enjoys helping women find comfort in natural childbirth. She created and leads Urban Breath Yoga’s 85-hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training program, which offers yoga teachers, OB/GYNs, midwives, doulas, and others who work with pregnancy and birth an opportunity to bring yoga techniques into their work in a meaningful and valuable way. Stacy’s instruction in the Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, as well as as a lead instructor of UB’s 200-hour Foundational Yoga Teacher Training, combines a wealth of knowledge in yoga and pregnancy/birth with an ability to inspire and prepare individuals to lead practices in a meaningful, relevant way.
