Empower & Inspire

Teaching prenatal yoga asana is the easy part, it’s fostering a loving, non-judgemental environment and encouraging women and beings to find their inner strength while tapping into their innate wisdom which is our most important role as teachers.

What they're saying...

"The Mamata 85hr Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training is hands down the most thorough training I've completed!  This is not a school that just hands out the RPYT designation. Clearly developed with intention and from a place of passion for caring for mom and baby from the prenatal stage, through delivery and into the postpartum stage.  With many hours of in-depth training videos, "face to face" online sessions, assignments and practicum requirements this course not only delivered in overall value but also in developing confidence in teaching to this demographic.   I also loved Clare's dialog in her live sessions as it came from a place of awareness in creating an inclusive environment.  This class was so much more than I expected!  I'm truly grateful I went on this journey with Mamata Yoga."

"I am truly blessed to have connected with Clare Newman and Mamata Yoga: Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga. The training and the information provided is comprehensive and cover more than Pre and Postnatal aspects... One can see that Clare has put her heart and soul into designing this training and the depth of compassion and commitment she has for women and mothers' health."

"The 85hr prenatal/postnatal certification taught by Clare Newman was everything I had hoped it would be. The extensive information Clare taught to us was current, practical, and easily understood. I felt ready to apply what I had learned right after the training was done. I am currently teaching prenatal and postnatal classes every week and love that I have the training and knowledge to support women during these times in their life."

"I spent months looking for the right online training; one where I would feel supported, one that wouldn't rush me as I needed to follow my own schedule. Everything I saw about Mamata Yoga called to my heart from the start, and I could not be more thankful for my time spent studying here with Clare. Upon completing my training, I feel so confident with the body of knowledge I am carrying in my teaching tool bag now. Clare has a clear mastery of the content and teaches it in such an in-depth way while still being beautifully relatable and comprehensible. You can feel all of the thought, love, and intention that went into creating every aspect of this program. Additionally, Clare was so available, helpful, and supportive every step of the way. Her experience, dedication, and passion speaks for itself, and it is so incredibly inspiring."

"I can’t recommend Mamata Yoga teacher training enough! I began with the postnatal yoga training when I myself was a new mom and the course saved me! It helped me understand so much about what I was going through and helped me shift my yoga practice to really help me heal and transition both physically and emotionally. I then went on to do the online 85hr prenatal YTT and I was blown away by all of the information. Clare has a plethora of information that she shares based on her own experience as a mom, doula and yoga teacher. The fact that the course was online worked perfectly with my schedule as a new mom and Clare always made herself available for any questions. I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about the motherhood journey and how yoga can help you along this path."  
~ Nicole
"I participated in the online prenatal teacher training and learned so much. As a yoga teacher, I was able to grow and expand my teaching skills while learning about how to keep pregnant people safe. I feel prepared to teach prenatal students and prepared to support my own yoga practice during my next pregnancy. The videos and supplementary materials were easy to follow, helpful and informative. I especially loved the thorough information about how to take care of the pelvic floor during pregnancy. I really wish I had that knowledge during my pregnancy!  I felt supported by Clare and Mamata Yoga throughout the process and would recommend this training to anyone!"

The Mamata Yoga Story

Mamata Yoga was created in 2011 after Program Director Clare Newman discovered she was pregnant with her second child and decided to create a prenatal yoga teacher training program to help create a solid unification of current yoga instructors and professionals who are interested in assisting women throughout pregnancy. Mamata Yoga has been a Registered Yoga School with the Yoga Alliance since 2011.  

We've been approved by the Yoga Alliance to teach this Online through 2023.  We only offer this Online Certified Training 3 times each year so would love to have you choose your co-hort and join us in this journey of movement and mindfulness!


Meet the woman behind Mamata Yoga

Clare Newman
Hello beautiful souls!

My name is Clare and I'm the Founder & Program Director of Mamata Yoga. I'm also a mother of three with over 23 years of experience in Hatha, Bikram, Anusara, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Kid's Yoga, Prenatal and Postpartum Yoga.

I studied Iyengar yoga intensively for over 4 years, attending the teacher training program at the Yoga Studio College of Alberta in 2005 (Certified).

I am an experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500), Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) and a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) with the Yoga Alliance.

I have assisted and lead 200-hour Teacher Training courses with Yoga Alliance since 2007 and am honoured to be the Program Director and co-facilitator for the 200 Yoga Teacher Training at Vikara Yoga Academy.

In 2005 I became a certified Doula from Global Birthing Institute. For years I volunteered at the Terra Association and assisted in helping teens prepare for Labour + Delivery and motherhood. I also taught several weekly prenatal yoga classes in Edmonton and surrounding cities.

Retirement as a Doula called early when I discovered I was pregnant with my first child in 2008 and made the dedication to focus my teachings on yoga.

I look forward to serving you and guiding you through your prenatal yoga training and can't wait to welcome you with open arms to the Mamata Yoga family!


I'm READY to start my training!
