Online Postnatal YTT
Online Postnatal YTT – 25 hrs
Postnatal Yoga or Mom & Baby Yoga classes are THE most challenging classes to teach! I’ve often said that a postnatal yoga instructor is part teacher, part baby wrangler, part baby whisperer and part goddess! You never know what will happen or what to expect, except for a whole lot of cuteness! These classes are incredibly rewarding as you share in the journey of growth and development with each baby and each mother.
Skill and understanding of baby’s development as well as the healing process for mom’s is the key in teaching postnatal yoga. Understanding the hormonal changes, the recovery for new mothers, the emotional well-being and to offer support and kindness are some of the main focuses on teaching a successful postnatal class. The balance between offering mothers time for themselves and including babies in the yoga classes can be tricky, but with skill and lots of tools in your yoga belt, can be flow with much ease.
With this online postnatal yoga training, you will learn much about the recovering mother physical Self whether they had a vaginal or cesarian birth and how to interact with babies. Understand the anatomical and physiological changes and how to appropriately teach poses with specific modifications while mothers heal and babies grow.

Do I need to have previous knowledge and training in yoga before I can take the online prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher training?
Much of the course and the postures are referred to in Sanskrit and English terminology. It’s certainly recommended to have a previous practice of the asana or postures as the course content will flow with more ease and understanding and be able to assimilate the information more quickly.
However, all of the trainings with Mamata Yoga are chalked full of research, information and guidance for even the most novice of teachers to follow along and teach with confidence.
What is the difference between the online prenatal/postnatal training and the 85 hr prenatal training?
Online yoga teacher trainings are not currently recognized by Yoga Alliance because they are not in the physical presence of the teacher. However, the hours for online yoga trainings can be used towards Yoga Alliance’s ‘Non Contact’ hours vrs ‘Contact’ hours.
The 85 hr Prenatal Yoga Teacher training which takes place with our program facilitators is recognized and accredited with Yoga Alliance. Once you’ve met all the requirements of the 85 hr Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training you’ll receive the designation of RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) with eligible to register with Yoga Alliance.
Will I be eligible and certified to teach Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga once I’ve completed the online yoga teacher training?
Yes, once all the requirements have been met and the 1 hr practicum video recording have been observed, the trainees will receive a certificate to obtain liability insurance as well as employment. As a internationally recognized and certified school, the certificate will state you have completed the online yoga teacher training program under the guidance of Clare Newman with Mamata Yoga.
Is the course content the same for both the online prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher training and the 85 hr prenatal yoga teacher training?

The course was designed and inspired by the pregnancy of Clare’s second child in 2011, her daughter.

We do not offer funds for our online courses because we’ve invested a lot of time and energy into creating the course content and videos.
