Prenatal & Postnatal YTTC
Upfront & Payment Plans
The intention of this 25 hour prenatal and postnatal teacher training course is to give you more tools to support and empower your students during and after pregnancy in both a group and private settings.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to create sequences for each trimester of pregnancy and postpartum and you’ll better understand each phase of pregnancy, what to focus on and what to avoid.
As each woman is unique, her practice will also be. We all have different bodies with
different limitations, strength,mobility, and goals. It is fundamental to be able to adapt the shapes and the sequences to individuals. These are the subtleties of teaching yoga.
Each module will start with a led class designed for a certain trimester of pregnancy or postpartum. This is for you to be able to see how a class is led in this context and what type of cueing we use. We’ll also guide you through some special sequences such as one for diastasis recti or for post miscarriage.
Each module will have an anatomy/physiology lecture, a section on affirmation and your intention as a yoga teacher for each month of pregnancy and postpartum.
We’ll cover in the teaching section, how to incorporate this new knowledge into your regular classes and give you lots of tutorials on how to teach pelvic floor and abdominal tonic, breathing exercises, guided meditation with scripts and much more.
Who is this course suitable for?
•Yoga teachers who wish to be able to welcome pregnant women into their classes
•Those wishing to facilitate prenatal and postnatal yoga classes
•Women who wish to learn more about their own bodies and how to adapt their practice

Meet your Instructor!
Gwen Ferreira (E-RYT500 & YACEP). She completed her last 300 hr YTT with Monica Gauci and Gregor Maehle who are KPJAYI certified and published authors. She also trained with Laruga Glaser, Janet Stone, Saul David Haye,Sienna Sherman, Paul Grilley and Jason Crandell for example.
She’s taught prenatal and postnatal women online and in-person.
One of her biggest passions and missions in life is to help yoga teachers develop their teaching skills so they can share their knowledge and help others.
A mother herself, she was amazed of the changes in her body and also in her practice before, during and after pregnancy. Pregnancy is a real transformation of the body and the mind as it always goes with transformation, it’s not always easy and comfortable. This is why having the support from knowledgeable yoga teachers is a must!
