85 Hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training (RPYS)

Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

ChildLight’s 85-Hour Registered Prenatal Yoga School (RPYS) prepares participants to confidently guide their yoga students through safe & meaningful yoga practices throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. Prenatal yoga celebrates the parent and baby connection and the beauty and power of a person’s changing body. We cover best practices for safety, sequencing, and teaching techniques for prenatal and postnatal yoga.

As a physical practice, yoga during pregnancy supports strength, endurance, and flexibility. Many expecting people find that regular practice improves circulation, combats fatigue, and reduces tension and stiffness in muscles and joints. As a mental discipline, yoga cultivates focus and emotional stability. Breathing exercises during prenatal yoga help parents relax deeply and connect with baby. ChildLight’s well-rounded training addresses the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga for pregnancy as well as important background information on health, anatomy, nutrition, Ayurveda and more.

"The Trauma-Informed Yoga and Mindfulness professional development workshop was extremely informative and engaging. The instructor did a wonderful job of balancing sharing content knowledge, discussion, and physical practice. The tools and trauma informed practices presented will be simple to bring back to my classroom and beneficial for the scholars. The workshop provides both specific strategies and a trauma-informed lens to view your current practices through. I highly recommend attending!
