Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training (100H)


Tly Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training

This Yoga Alliance certified training is a one-of-a-kind programme that brings together subject experts from the field of prenatal and postnatal yoga, women's health physiotherapy and perinatal mental health and wellness. Through this training programme, you will learn what are the benefits of prenatal and postnatal yoga, how yoga philosophy applies to the prenatal and postnatal period, the anatomy and physiology of labour and childbirth, techniques sequencing and class design as well as how to apply trauma-aware principles to your practice and teaching. 

In essence, you will learn how to support yourself or your students/clients in a way that is:

  • evidence-based
  • trauma-aware
  • physiology-driven
  • birth-informed

These elements are not just a reflection of TLY's teaching approach and #wombtoworld philosophy, but what we feel are critical qualities needed in today's world - whether you're looking to enhance your pregnancy and birth experience or teach prenatal or postnatal students/clients that honours the pregnant and birthing body as intelligent, powerful and fascinating

We have designed this programme to be an empowering learning experience for EVERYONE - not just teachers! This course is also for you you are a currently pregnant, postpartum or would just like to equip yourself with knowledge and tools to connect with your body at a deeper level. Graduates from this programme will be able to teach prenatal and postnatal yoga in a way that truly supports and empowers pregnant, birthing and postpartum persons. 


Why are we here? 

We are here because we believe that:

… the practice of yoga was designed by men for the male body - the female body and her cyclical nature and unique anatomy has been largely ignored in the physical/somatic practices of asana and pranayama.

… we want to approach prenatal and postnatal yoga as deserving its own vocabulary to support health and vitality through this precious period - one that does not rest upon avoidance and modifications made in reference to the tenets of traditional (male-centred) yoga.

… we need to bridge the gap between the birthing world and the world of yoga; several incongruences exist and we would like to answer the call to bridge them.


We have three calls to action: 

… we want to provide a more evidence-based and trauma-informed lens to prenatal and postnatal yoga, because this is so necessary in a world where birth trauma, postpartum depression and perinatal mood disorders are on the rise.

… we want to centre the wonder of the pregnant and birthing body - from its anatomy to its physiology and psychology - and not see it as a side dish to a main course.

… we want to empower others to be in their bodies and to trust their inner wisdom and deep knowing.

ALL are welcome to apply whether you're just a curious yoga practitioner, yoga teacher, doula, birth worker or a movement professional. Pregnant and postpartum persons are more than welcome. Should childcare be needed during the day, we will be happy to accommodate babies. 


Why should you enroll?

If you'd like to  to enhance your experience of pregnancy, labour and birth and learn how you can support and nourish yourself through these periods, then this course is for YOU. 

This is also for you if you teach pregnant, birthing and postpartum people. For most teachers, coaches and trainers - most of your clients would fall into those categories once or more in in their lives! Knowing what to avoid and modify for a safe practice is just scratching the surface. We can and should do better for the pregnant and postpartum communities. We welcome you to start this journey with us right here.
