What they're saying...
Dr. Natalie C.
Black Diamond, Canada
'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 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.'
'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 knowledge-base. Highly recommend!'
'I had a most wonderful and enlightening experience with Mamata Yoga. Clare was exceptionally knowledgeable and her experience is invaluable. I am thankful for her and her team and this opportunity. I have taken a lot of training over the years and this online experience was by far the best'

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 comprehensive yoga teacher training program to help create a solid unification of current yoga instructors and professionals who are interested in assisting mothers, beings and parents throughout their postpartum recovery. Mamata Yoga has been a Registered Yoga School with the Yoga Alliance since 2011.
Meet the woman behind Mamata Yoga
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!
