Yoga Alliance 85hr certified
This comprehensive 85 hour teacher training program is certified with the international governing body of Yoga Alliance. We’ve chosen to design our course offering 3 core modules, covering pregnancy, labour & delivery, conscious couples and postpartum education.
Mamata Yoga believes that we are stronger as a community! Throughout our trainings we invite various experts in their fields to share their experiences and knowledge with the group. You will gain knowledge in spiritual modalities such as reiki in pregnancy, ayurveda philosophy, subtle energy movement, reflexology, pelvic floor exercises and thai yoga massage for pregnancy.
All of these healing modalities will allow you as a teacher to help guide and assist a mothers and parents to grow during their pregnancy and to prepare wholeheartedly for the journey into parenthood.
Teaching prenatal yoga asana is the easy part, it’s fostering a loving, non-judgemental environment and encouraging women to find their inner strength while tapping into their innate wisdom that is our most important role as a teacher.

What our students are saying
I absolutely adored Clare from the moment I met her. She has a powerful, loving energy and is passionate about educating and empowering women through such a vital time in their lives. I was lucky enough to complete my 85 hour YTT while I was pregnant and without a doubt Clare not only prepared me to teach pre and postnatal yoga, she prepared me to be in my pregnant body and to birth in a way that I felt more knowledgeable, empowered and informed about.
The education I received from this course was second to none – in fact, when I did my birthing classes I could not believe how much I already knew purely from the education I had received over 3 weekends in Mamata Yoga training. And then having Clare share herself and her heart each and every day in our classes made her teachings so much more relevant and real which was just icing on the cake.
Clare is so, so intelligent, hilarious, caring beyond belief, has a wealth of experience to teach from, and is willing to put her heart on a platter for her students. This to me, is the perfect role-modeling for becoming a teacher of our pre and postnatal population. There needs to be more of this love, this honesty, this education, and this energy for women in this phase of their lives and Clare exemplifies this throughout her trainings while providing a truly wonderful education, and provides outstanding resources. The required assignments, readings and her extra, optional recommendations of books, documentaries and practices for women’s health were extremely relevant and wonderfully complemented the course.
I went to this training to further my own education and connect more deeply into my own practice but I left the training as a truly passionate advocate for women’s health, choices, and unique journeys through what is most-likely the most significant life-changing time they will ever experience. I honestly couldn’t be more grateful for this training, for Clare and for the lifelong education I have received from Mamata Yoga.
So much love for this journey, and so much gratitude for this training.

This training was invaluable as a Yoga Teacher as there are many women who practice yoga out in my area and knowing these ways to modify and practice is absolutely wonderful to know! Both men and women who wish to expand their yoga teaching practice, or even as individuals in various fields such as social work, child & youth care, child development, or other, including parents-to-be (and parents with children), would benefit from this training!
So many amazing concepts and areas that can blend with various practices on and off the mat, which is what practitioners of yoga are looking for: someone they trust to expand their yoga practice, and develop a relationship to continue growing that passion, knowledge and finding who they can be referred to safely in the community for further support.
This training touches on variety areas of the body, mind and soul that adapt and evolve through pregnancy, including, though not limited to: understanding the pelvis and other important areas of the body (including Pelvic Floor muscle softening and tightening), methods to work with women where they are at in their pregnancy (and how to support them and refer them back to their labour team when they are living with significant health concerns), working with their Doula, or other support team to ensure that everyone is working together and supporting the growing family-to-be, and a lot of hands-on techniques (which were very valuable even through an online platform such as Zoom) and a lot of great conversation to address any questions, language, etc.
I would HIGHLY recommend this training online (while it is still available and approved through Yoga Alliance) or in person if you are in the Edmonton, AB, Canada area anytime soon! So happy I followed my intuition and signed up for this training!!
Clare is amazing, her passion and love for what she does shines in her teacher training. I learned so much from her and I truly feel that she shifted me as a teacher and a woman.
I enjoyed Clare’s enthusiasm and knowledge on prenatal and postnatal yoga, both moms and babes. Clare is a wonderful facilitator of learning, and made the whole training both accessible to everyone and fun. I am very grateful for her collaboration with other health care professionals and yoga teachers. I would highly recommend this training to anyone wanting to teach prenatal or postnatal yoga.

I recently completed Mamata Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training, and was very happy with the whole process. I completed my prenatal yoga training with a local company in person, and I can say that I feel as prepared to be a postnatal yoga teacher from Clare’s online support as I did from an in-person class; the online format is a great alternative and much more flexible.
Clare has years of experience and loads of yoga wisdom to pass on to each of her students—you will be a better yoga teacher after taking her training! The manual is very helpful to follow along with the online lectures, and the assignments were fitting to advance my postnatal yoga knowledgebase. Highly recommend!
The Mamata 85hr Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training is hands down the most thorough and intense 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.

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 recently completed Mamata Yoga’s 85 hour Pre & Post Natal Yoga teacher training with Clare and it was amazing! Clare has a wealth of knowledge and shares it in a way that keeps you engaged throughout all of the modules. Her sense of humour keeps it real and allows you to feel comfortable to ask questions without hesitation. Her manual is extremely well done and very informative. I refer back to it often as I plan and teach my prenatal classes.
The knowledge I gained from this training has given me the confidence I needed to teach prenatal yoga classes in my own community. To be able to share what I have learned with others is exciting.
I highly recommend taking this training if you teach yoga or work with prenatal mamas.

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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for a more personal payment plan.
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 email@example.com 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”.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
If you are called to support women in your community and this training program feels ‘right’, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly with any specific questions or concerns at email@example.com. I believe strongly in mentorship and continuous support so no matter which program you choose, I am here for YOU!
