This training will give you tools and knowledge to safely instruct prenatal yoga classes once you are certified and have teaching experience. It can also be your starting point as you build on your teacher training education. You may use these hours as continuous education for Yoga Alliance or it can be the foundation for a full 85 Hour Certification with Yoga Alliance.
Yoga Alliance Prenatal Certification requires a specific amount of hours with lead instructors and with other practitioners to complement learning along with observing, teaching and reading hours. You would have to sign up to a certification mentorship with Nanci and Lorena who will guide you through the process. Upon completion of all requirements, you will receive a certificate that will allow you to register at the Yoga Alliance website and obtain RPYT designation.
