Prenatal + Postnatal

Yoga Training

Embracing Mother + Child

In our Prenatal + Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training (40h YACEP), you will learn tools to empower Mother + Child on this transformational journey. We go beyond asana, to explore a trauma sensitive approach to physiology and the nervous system influences between mother and child. In sharing this approach in your classes, you offer moms a space to be seen, heard, and connect more deeply with their child.

What makes our training unique?

This training will support you in creating an empowering environment for Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Classes, including offering you the tools to support moms who join your non-prenatal specific classes. In order to teach, you will need your 200h yoga teacher training.

  • Gain a deep understanding of the nervous system + biology of pain to empower moms

  • Explore Anatomy through a holistic, progressive lense with Cheryl Leia, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist

  • Learn about the biology of trauma and how to create an atmosphere that is supportive for all families

  • Empower moms to go within to connect with themselves and their child, to nourish a healthy relationship

  • Explore how to hold space for Mothers who experience loss, are overwhelmed by choice in providers and more

  • Support families with tools to encourage healthy development in the first year of life + support with common concerns

  • Create meaningful community + classes for your clients, drawing upon Kundalini, Hatha, Yin, Restorative + Nidra practices

  • The opportunity to enjoy (if you're a pregnant or mom with babe) or assist in in-person Prenatal or Mom + Babe Yoga Classes

Katie, Lead

Katie is a mama to two, an Expert Registered Yoga Teacher - ERYT-500, Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT), Registered Children's Yoga Teacher - RCYT, Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP), Craniosacral + Somatoemotional Practitioner, and Masters of Counselling Candidate. She has worked with children and adults for over 20 years, and taught yoga since 2012. Her unique understanding of the emotions, the body, and the nervous system help her to empower those she works with. Learning meditation, breath-work and Somatic tools as a child inspired her life work! Katie prefers the more gentle (Yin) styles of yoga that nourish the nervous system to go within. After having two children, she feels even more called to hold space for Mother, child, and families. Katie hopes to inspire you with tools you can incorporate into your life and share with your clients, to empower them on this transformational journey!

Cheryl, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist

I have been working in pelvic health for 12 years and have been a practicing physiotherapist for over 35 years. I’m well respected for my extensive knowledge of how our bodies work (which includes pelvic health), and my compassionate, caring, and straightforward treatment style. Having had two C-sections myself, a VBAC, chronic headaches, and multiple sports injuries, it’s safe to say I understand women’s and pelvic health issues intimately.

Empathetic, knowledgeable, and always professional (with a side of light-hearted humour!), I strive to make talking about pelvic health concerns easy and comfortable. I believe that working on people’s pelvic health is the best job in the world— and I think it shows!

Yoga is a wonderful way to move, know your essence, and, benefit from your breath. It’s perfect for moms!

What certification do I get?

Upon completion you will receive a 35h YACEP certification for continuing education if you are registered with Yoga Alliance. Otherwise, it's a great training to take for further knowledge, especially if you are working with pregnant and new (again) families.

Do I need my 200h?

This is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education certification, so it is created based on students having a basic understanding of Yoga, however; you are welcome to take this training out of interest... but please know we won't be diving into skeletal variation or each form and how to hold poses perfectly (which isn't true for each person anyway) and other details you may learn in a 200h program. If you want to explore this for personal benefit and are pregnant or have just had a little one, I would recommend our Empowered Pregnancy + Beyond Course on the gloWithin App, which comes with a 1:1 session with Katie.

Do you offer payment plans?

Of course! Please email to arrange an interest-free payment plan after you have submitted your application.
