Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, Level 1

For experienced or aspiring yoga teachers, doulas, midwives, OBs, labor and delivery nurses, and mothers.

Learn to empower expecting mothers and prepare them for a flowing and connected birth experience. Sarah Longacre, founder and owner of Blooma, a prenatal yoga school registered with the Yoga Alliance, teaches you a prenatal yoga sequence that builds confidence and strength, encourages bonding of mother and baby, and uplifts mind, body, and spirit.

Drawing from a rich history of birthing wisdom, this training includes anatomy, wellness information, and an introduction to childbirth education philosophies, and explains how prenatal yoga helps women prepare for labor and childbirth. Explore your own beliefs about birth, practice with others, and take turns teaching so you can return home confident and ready to lead prenatal yoga classes.

Prerequisites 10 hours of participation/observation of Be Blooma Well: Prenatal Yoga + More (DVD) and/or Blooma’s A.M./P.M. Prenatal Yoga (DVD) is due within two months of completing Level 1, but you are encouraged to complete prior to the training.
