In-Person Prenatal Yoga Program (RPYT)

If you’re interested in earning your Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) designation with Yoga Alliance, learn more about our in-person program.  Currently, our in-person trainings take place via Zoom. Our next training will be held in April 2024.


Many women want to continue their yoga practice during pregnancy. Prenatal yoga helps individuals before and after they give birth, as well as during the birthing process. The breathing and body awareness developed through yoga helps women stay connected to their changing bodies. The stretches and postures help relieve back pain common during pregnancy, and help develop the strength and stamina necessary for giving birth. Yoga helps develop an overall healthier body, making it easier to bounce back after birth. However, if you are unaware of the precautions recommended for pregnant students, you may be putting your students or yourself at risk. Whether you are a yoga teacher, or are pregnant yourself, it is important that you know how to practice yoga safely during pregnancy.
Our prenatal yoga education programs focus on developing your ability to provide pregnant women with safe, effective, and fun yoga practices throughout every stage of their pregnancy. The program emphasizes positive teaching techniques, proper sequencing, safety considerations, and easy modifications to make each class a fun and rewarding experience for everyone. Finally, you will learn not only how to create safe programs, but how to make those yoga practices transformative for your students or yourself during this special time in life.

Our online program is suitable for:

  • Yoga teachers who want to add prenatal yoga classes to their teaching schedule.
  • Yoga teachers who want to be prepared for any prenatal students who may attend their regular classes.
  • Pregnant women who have practiced yoga and want to continue their practice during their pregnancy.
  • Medical and health professionals or childbirth educators who work with pregnant women (physicians, nurses, midwives, doulas, etc).

The Benefits of Yoga For Pregnant Women

  • Improved strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • Reduced back pain and sciatica
  • Relieving stress and anxiety
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved breathing and lung capacity
  • Better digestion
  • Help in maintaining and improving posture

These are just a few of the many benefits for pregnant women when they learn yoga from you.

To earn your certificate:

You will need to complete the following:

  1. Complete an open book written exam, and include a sample lesson plan
  2. Complete a personal statement about your goals and why you want to teach prenatal yoga
  3. Sign and submit a Yoga Teacher Ethics statement

Once you complete the virtual (online) program, you will receive your certificate of completion for the Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training course. This certificate provides you with continuing education credit with Yoga Alliance, and allows you to obtain professional liability insurance for the purpose of teaching prenatal yoga. Many of our students stop at that point and do well teaching.

In-Person Program Option for Yoga Alliance Registration (RPYT):

If you want to complete the more advanced Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher distinction with Yoga Alliance, additional in-person training is required.
