PRE NATAL YOGA – A 20 Hr Teacher Training
with Senior Teacher & Midwife Danielle Denwood

Friday July 7 – Sunday July 9


Pre-natal Yoga gives women time deepen their connection to their own bodies, finding more comfort while they experience the rapid and unfamiliar changes of pregnancy. They then learn to trust the body’s innate wisdom for birth.  It is a wonderful space to create as teachers, and having the knowledge and skills to teach a prenatal class is hugely empowering and rewarding.

This in depth course taught by Danielle Denwood, Certified Professional Midwife and Senior PreNatal Yoga Instructor, will prepare you to confidently guide pregnant women through yoga classes and provide support to women in with  their formative stages of pregnancy.  For many women, the physical and emotional support received in PreNatal classes is instrumental in helping them through a healthy and vibrant pregnancy.

PreNatal yoga instructors are highly sought after by yoga studios and continue to be in short supply.    This Certification will allow you to lead a full PreNatal class and also assist pregnant women who are attending your regular yoga classes.

“I felt the practical practice and conversations and information will really aid me in moving forward to teach prenatal classes and also accommodate pregnant women that attend my regular classes
“I learned a lot about pregnancy, opening a door of growth and body awareness. As a yoga teacher, greater confidence in teaching pregnant women”
