This course is for students who have previously completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training (or equivalent) and wish to deepen their studies.  Our approach is holistic, you will learn to teach all different ages and bodies.  

The first module is prenatal yoga broken down by trimester.  You will learn the stages of pregnancy and how the body is changing and growing.  Explore appropriate poses, modifications, specific situations you may encounter, pranayamas & mediations appropriate for each trimester.  

Then, dive into postnatal yoga: either a soothing practice for the new mama or a fun, light hearted class for parents & babies to enjoy together. 

Finally, let your inner child shine during some kids yoga! In this module of the training, we will learn how to engage children, class theme ideas, safety, how to teach different age groups, etc.

Each section will include a different module where you will learn: how to teach, sample sequences, appropriate asanas, pranayamas, adjustments, safety precautions, meditations, and more!  

Upon completion of the course, you will be certified and confident to teach expecting mothers, new mothers and children of all ages! 

This is a YACEP® Course, you will be qualified to register for 45 continuing education hours through Yoga Alliance.  

How it works:

The course is divided into 3 modules, prenatal, postnatal, kids.  You will be sent one module at a time, along with follow up questions.  After each module, you will submit your answers along with a 15-20 minute video of yourself teaching.  Upon completion of all 3 modules and a Skype final exam (about 20 minutes) you will receive a PDF version of your certificate, Yoga Alliance approved, 45 Continuing Education hours. 

** It is also an option to chose just Prenatal & Postnatal.  This would be 30 Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance.

Feedback:

“I really enjoyed Lauren’s course. It’s informative, supportive and fun. Lauren has so much knowledge and is a great teacher to learn from. The course was such a great compliment to my 200hr training. My first regular class was a postnatal with baby. It’s been a real joy to see how much yoga can benefit mothers and kids. I would strongly recommend taking the course. It’s made me feel comfortable teaching prenatal or postnatal attendees in my open classes.” ~J.L. November 2018

“I loved Lauren's online prenatal, postnatal and kids yoga course that she offers. It was very informative and covered all areas it needed. I was able to take it at my own pace too, which is always a plus. Lauren was detailed in her feedback on videos, routines and the questions we had to turn in and was always available for any questions or concerns. I definitely recommend this course!” ~L.H. September 2018

"I feel the course is well balanced. Lauren is a fantastic teacher who makes the lectures fun and engaging. The pace is steady and informative.
