Learn all the pregnant why's!

To the nervous yoga teacher.... 

 Listen, we've all been busily getting ready to start a class, setting the space for a serene class and reviewing our class plan when a fresh faced, bountiful belly glide in with their mat and smiles.

You instantly freeze thinking 'surely they must be in the wrong class' or 'how will I keep this student safe?' and you've definitely said you yourself 'well there goes my class plan' as you toss it aside. 

You rummage through your mind of poses and refer back to what you learned in your 200 hr training and declare 'whew, I'll just teach Cat, Cow and Bound Angle' problem solved. 

Pregnancy isn't scary and believe it or not, those belly's and babies are surrounded by anatomical glory, but no one wants to only practice three poses all class.  Don't get stuck not knowing what to modifications to teach or how to cue your prenatal students!

The Mamata Yoga Story

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 this AWESOME training today!
