All yoga instructors will encounter pregnant women in their yoga classes. Empower yourself with this weekend training devoted to the unique life stages of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum.
Learn the tools needed to guide pregnant bodies through a healthy yoga practice. Prenatal yoga incorporates stretching, mental centering and focused breathing to encourage a state of peace and balance within the body. Practicing yoga while pregnant may help prevent the common discomforts of pregnancy while preparing the body for childbirth by stretching and strengthening the lower back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and opening the hips and sacrum. Learn about contraindicated poses, modifications, hands-on adjustments, and poses to support a positive birth experience. Discover poses that provide relief for common pregnancy ailments and learn how to sequence classes to support pregnant and postpartum mothers.
Whether you are a yoga teacher, a mommy-to-be, or a doula, you will learn the keys to an ideal yoga practice for pregnant bodies.

What are Advanced Study Modules?
We’ve built our Advanced Study Modular Program around the drop-in concept. There are 11 required modules you need to take, each lasting anywhere from 2-5 days long, generally over a weekend. Modules are taught either by one of our experienced staff members or an international yoga teacher. We bring some of the biggest names in the industry to our studio and programs. In this very flexible modular program, you get to decide which particular module you take, at what time and taught by whom. And you have 5 years to complete 11 modules (some students do it within 2 years though). Modules are generally open to the public as well, so you will be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring enthusiasts. Modules can be taken by someone not going after a 300 Hour Certification–though if they decide later to pursue the 300 Hour Certification, they can retroactively include the modules they’ve already taken in the past 12 months only.
Choose 11 modules in total from these four categories:
- Pick at least one 3-day course
- Pick at least one 4-day course
- Pick at least one 5-day Intensive
- Pick the remaining eight courses from any of the four categories (weekend, 3-day, 4-day, or 5-day*)
*You must complete 11 separate modules for graduation. Most modules offered multiple times per year.
