Accredited Specialty Yoga Teacher Training

Doulas and pregnant women - come along for a nourishing retreat

Are you a certified yoga teacher looking to expand your skill set? Do you love to  provide a nurturing space of loving self care for women? Ready to upgrade your Yoga Alliance or Yoga Australia accreditation? Or are you a doula or mum-to-be who would love to deepen your understanding of yogic practice through a beautiful, nourishing retreat experience


Either way, join us for a joyous, wholesome getaway with seasoned teachers who create a loving space of femininity, self-care and motherhood for all stages of life.

Human birth is a great gift — let’s welcome it with due respect, humility and joy

There is nothing as powerful as a group of women coming together to support one another. The primal journey of birthing our babies is a pivotal moment in a woman's life, so spending this time together should not be underestimated in its power for us to ‘hold space’ in our minds and hearts for birthing.

TEACHING PREGNANCY YOGA  provides just this precious opportunity and is a great addition to your skill set as a yoga teacher or doula, as well as a great relaxation if you are an expecting mother.


About this prenatal yoga course

Yoga has proven to be a safe and effective practice during pregnancy. It has a whole variety of positive effects on the mother’s body, including developing strength, maintaining fitness and reducing symptoms of pregnancy such as muscle aches, swelling, sciatica, cramps, and fatigue. But even more so, yoga has demonstrated a positive impact on mother's and baby's mind, inducing a sense of inner peace and wellbeing. Join us to learn how to safely practice yoga asana in pregnancy and how to adapt your yoga classes for pregnant women.  

The training encompasses three parts:

Pregnancy (conception, asana, prananyama, sadhana, yoga nidra, chanting and meditation)

Labour preparation (yogic scriptures on birth, pranayama for labour, birth without violence or ahimsa, pratyahara in birthing)

Post-natal (care of self, care of baby, sacred 40 days after birthing, mantras and chanting, shraddha, baby massage/yoga).

We also cover:

  • Sequencing and class planning 

  • Anatomy and physiology of pregnancy


  • Business skills for launching your pre and postnatal yoga classes


*This course offers recognised accreditation with Yoga Australia and Yoga Alliance for prenatal yoga teaching.

To get this accreditation you must have completed a minimum of 200 hours of yoga teacher training. The course is open to everyone but only certified yoga teachers can get the certification.
