85HR RPYTT

Throughout UB's three-weekend intensive 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
  • Postpartum period and yoga after birth including modifications for cesareans, perineal tears, weakened pelvic floors and abdominal separation
  • Skeletal, muscular, nervous, and hormonal changes that may affect practice
  • Modifications for common pregnancy discomforts and medical conditions
  • Practice teaching and final exam
Three additional contact hours will be accrued by observing two 90-minute prenatal classes led by Stacy. 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.
