Pregnancy Teacher Training

March 11- 14 2019

We believe Pregnancy Yoga is for every pregnant woman. We hope that this course will give the teacher the skills and knowledge to teach pregnant women safely and with confidence and joy. We know that by practicing yoga women feel more in tune with their bodies, building confidence  through the emotional and physical transitions of pregnancy and gathering  tools to prepare for a satisfying birth.
