What are the prerequisites for the program?

In order to received the RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) certification through the Yoga Alliance you must be registered or enrolled in a 200 hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) program.

If you are not currently registered through the Yoga Alliance or do not have a designated 200 hr Teacher Training certification you can apply for certification in the future once you’ve completed such.

If you’re looking to deepen your own practice or interested in looking for other modalities to teach your clients, you’ll still receive a certificate stating your completion of the 85 hours.

If I'm not a current or professional yoga teacher, am I still able to teach and receive insurance based on this training?

YES! Upon completion of the 85 hours, you’ll receive a certification stating you’ve completed the course under my guidance and that of the reputable and registered school of Mamata Yoga. With the certificate, you’ll be eligible to receive liability insurance. Until you complete a 200 hour RYT course you will not be registered with Yoga Alliance.

If I take a 200 RYT program in the future, will I be accredited for the prenatal training at that time?

YES! Once you’ve received your 200 hour certificate, you can upload both of the certificates. Once you’ve done so you’ll hold a 200 RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) designation.

If I cannot attend all three weekends in the LIVE training, can I make up a missed module at another time?

YES! The modules remain the same throughout all the trainings. If you cannot make one weekend, you can make-up the module at another time or in another city. It’s recommended that you always complete Module #1 before the other two as the focus on Pregnancy and Anatomy is covered during the first weekend.

Please check the Course Description for more information about each specific module!

Do you offer a flexible payment plan?

We support and recognize the need to fulfill other obligations and training programs and we’re more than willing to work towards a flexible payment program based on one’s financial needs and situation.

Both the LIVE ($1,050 + GST CDN) and the ONLINE ($800 USD) can be broken into three equal payments.  A deposit is required before the training commences.  Inquire at for a more personal payment plan.

Are there any other requirements for the program?

The program is divided into 70 hours of hand on training with Clare Newman (Program Director). The other 15 hours to complete the 85 hour total is made of practicum classes and observation. Trainees must attend prenatal or postnatal classes for observation. Please contact for classes offered in your area.

These classes can be completed at any time, before or after the training commences. Once completed and the worksheets handed in, the trainee will receive the final seal for the certificate!

As one of the previous trainees called it, “the golden seal of love”.

How do I register?

These trainings have a maximum acceptance of 15 trainees and usually fill quickly. To secure and guarantee your spot, all you need to do is pay the deposit of $250.00 + GST. The remaining amount of $840.00 owing will be due upon commencement of the course.

You can request a registration form at

What if the program is cancelled? Will I receive a refund?

If the program has been cancelled due to low enrolment and/or cancellation on Mamata Yoga’s behalf, than a full tuition reimbursement will be returned. This process may take a few business days upon confirmation.

If a trainee who paid the deposit can no longer attend the course, the deposit will be held and put towards the program in the future. The deposit is non-refundable. If the trainee paid for the course in full, the remainder amount (total – deposit) will be returned.

If you are thinking about Pre-natal Yoga classes, here are some things to think about. These gentle classes are designed to support the anatomical changes and to find comfort in the physical changes that pregnancy bestows on new mothers. Yoga asana or poses that focus on hip opening stretches, stamina strengthening standing poses to help prepare for labour and delivery, shoulder opening stretches to help prepare for motherhood mixed with gentle and guided breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation is the key focus in pre-natal yoga.


Refunds for both the 85 hr course and online course are only offered should the course be cancelled by Mamata Yoga. Refunds and the non-fundable deposits are not returned if the trainee discontinuous with the program.

Liability and Disclaimer

Mamata Yoga Inc. and Clare Newman do not assume the liability for you and your teachings. You must do your diligence as a teacher to ensure your students and mama’s are practicing yoga safely by offering modifications as well as understanding each student’s medical history. Please ensure mothers are ‘safe’ to practice and that they’ve had the clearance to resume their activity in both pregnancy and postpartum recommended by their health care provider, midwife, physician or OBGYN.
