Pre Natal Teacher Training 2017

I've drawn on over a decades teaching experience, the initiation into motherhood myself (twice). and my work supporting women as a birth doula, to design and deliver exceptional continuing education training programs  for pre-natal yoga and movement teachers.


Yoga Detour

Yoga Detour sets some of the highest standards in the industry for continuing education.  I was honoured to develop the inaugural program, a 100 hour Pre and Post Natal movement program that incorporates an exceptional faculty comprising of a pelvic floor physiotherapist, nutritionist, birth doula, pregnancy yoga and movement specialists, and a pilates teacher.  The Post Natal component runs from September 8 - 10, 2017. Stay tuned for the full program running again in 2018.


Octopus Garden Yoga Centre

Join me from September 15 - 17, 2017 for the Pre Natal Teacher Training Program at Octopus Garden.  Part One of this TT covers all you need to know to keep women in your regular classes safe and healthy and begin to develop your teaching skills towards teaching a pre natal yoga class to a pregnant population.
