For yoga teachers who are passionate about women’s health, this programme provides the necessary components to create your fertility, pregnancy, and postnatal yoga classes.

You will receive a comprehensive awareness of the physical, mental and emotional considerations attributed to the continuum of a pre-and-post pregnant Self.

Whilst this programme explores yoga’s potentiality to address primary health outcomes of fetal and maternal wellness, you’ll be taken well beyond anatomy and asana, into the transition from maiden to mother. Thus enabling you to create a safe container for this journey. The process of life is indeed birth and death, to birth your Self once more.

Whether it whispers to deepen your practice or exclaims to share with others, we invite you to hear your inner calling and come explore.

Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training dives into the foundations of anatomy, alignment and movement in a way that is safe, stable, easeful and empowering.

With every breath and movement, you’ll be supported to find your own feet, resource your strength from within, and give voice to the passion that calls you.
