Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Module II: Advanced Techniques

November 7 - November 11

Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Module II: Advanced Techniques with Melylah Botté Smith

One of the most powerful ways to create healing in society is to support those who are birthing our future. Yoga Garden SF is a leading national center for prenatal yoga teacher training with graduates successfully teaching throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe. Our program is one of few that offers Yoga Alliance registration as a Prenatal Yoga School (the only nationally-recognized standard for prenatal yoga teacher training). This gives give our graduates an assurance of quality, and the unique advantage in becoming a Yoga Alliance® Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT®).
Yoga Garden’s Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, led by Melylah Smith (RPYT 500), lays a strong foundation for understanding the emotional, physical, and mental impact of pregnancy and birth in today’s world and birthing culture.
In Module II: Advanced Techniques, you will learn to artfully sequence and teach complete prenatal classes. In this module, you will gain an understanding of how to:
  • Create, theme, and sequence supportive, welcoming, and transformational prenatal classes
  • Support pregnant students in the 4th trimester
  • Use restorative yoga in your classes
  • Teach partner yoga for pregnancy
  • Teach “Baby & Me” yoga classes
  • Understand common postpartum discomforts
  • Practice self-care as a prenatal yoga guide
  • Birth your prenatal yoga teaching business!

This module includes additional offerings by a diverse group of guest teachers. Together, we will explore ideas around collective healing, and how we can grow as a society by uplifting birthing people regardless of race, class, or gender identity.

Module II: Advanced Techniques is recommended for those who feel passionate about prenatal yoga and want to become a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT®). It is also recommended for birth workers, educators, and pregnant students themselves.



This training occurs in two 5-day modules. Please note: Module I: Foundations is a prerequisite for this module. Both modules are required for those wishing to become a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT®).
