We are delighted to offer an incredible Prenatal Teacher Training with the inimitable Shana Celnicker-Chong . The program is a comprehensive immersion for 200-Hour certified teachers and beyond that wish to glean skills and wisdom about how to serve this community.
Featuring 85+ hours of content and teaching practicum spread over five months, when you are finished you will feel confident and able to support your pregnant students physically, mentally and emotionally. Each year, we gather a rich program of students, teachers, educators and birth professionals to deepen your knowledge of yoga and pregnancy beyond the "do’s and don'ts" of prenatal yoga.
