An 85 hour Yoga Alliance Prenatal Yoga Teacher Certification Program


There are many great prenatal yoga teacher training programs abound but not many local trainings that will take you through to certification with the Yoga Alliance. This training led by Kate Noble will immerse you in a program that is designed to support women through every stage of pregnancy, through delivery, and even into the days of early motherhood. 

Print, complete, scan & send application to for approval.

Course Syllabus:

Trainees will take a closer look at the benefits of Yoga specifically for the pregnant mother. With an understanding of common issues for women at this life stage, we can build classes to suit their needs. Trainees will be introduced to the general physiological, emotional, and energetic changes and challenges that occur during pregnancy. Trainees will identify common discomforts and tendencies specific to the pregnant woman so that we can explore modifications to general Yoga practice throughout the training. 


Trainees will explore rapport building skills between both teacher and student, and among students, to create an environment that is conducive to self-discovery, increased sensitivity, and that will encourage students to make deeper inner connections that will help them to feel more empowered in self-care throughout the pregnancy, in the delivery room, and in the role of new mother. Trainees will practice connecting on a deeply personal level with students, will learn how to help build community among students, will explore skills in helping students to open up more intuitively and instinctively, and will encourage students to move in ways that more fully support themselves and their bond with baby. Subjects of study include:


Anatomy & PhysiologySafety for Mother & Baby, Prenatal Teaching Skills, Class Planning & Sequencing, Yoga Philosophy, Yoga for the Birth Process, Partner Yoga for Pregnancy, Supervised Practicum

Program Requirements:

MamaShine’s Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training & PRYT Certification Program runs from May 19, 2017 - September 9 (+ 20 hour personal practicum & 10 hours home study). The program is comprised of core training weekends, home study, and practicum. Yoga Alliance requires Prenatal Teacher Trainees to teach an additional 30 hours of prenatal classes before becoming a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. Shine Yoga center is not responsible for securing this aspect of Yoga Alliance’s practicum. You will receive an 85-hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Traning Certificate at the end of our training period upon completion of your practicum. If a student must miss class room hours - these must be made up with the lead instructor and will require an additional charge to make-up missed time.(As you have only one lead instructor for this training, there is always the possiblity of illness or emergency that may require a shift in the weekend training schedule. Every effort will be made to stay on schedule, but in the case of a schedule shift accomodations will be made that work with each students schedule to make up this time.)
