Teacher Training Overview

A Unique and Empowering Teacher Training

Interested in teaching yoga to women during pregnancy, to support their birth and during early motherhood?
This course is for yoga teachers and maternity professionals who want to learn a yogic approach to pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period and to deepen their understanding of these life changing stages in women’s lives.
The course will take you on a personal journey of self discovery, preparing you to hold space for women in a deeply grounded, knowledgable, self aware and sensitive way.
Using traditional, authentic yoga practises, you will learn to support women through the  physical, emotional and spiritual changes and challenges of pregnancy, birth and early motherhood.

Training structure:
To qualify for the Postgraduate Diploma in Pregnancy, Birth and Postnatal Yoga (150 hours), you attend all three courses and submit completed course work for assessment.  Registered with Yoga Australia, the Post Graduate Diploma is taught over a 9 month period and includes personal mentoring with Helen.

The courses (Pregnancy, Birth and Postnatal Yoga) can be attended individually and are recognised as approved professional development (APD) course by Yoga Australia. Each course includes two non-residential weekend intensives held at the beginning and end of a 10 week period. This time allows for the necessary study, practise and course work to be completed and assessed.  These courses are valid continual professional development (CPD) for Yoga Australia membership.
