Calling all yoga teachers! Are you ready to expand your teaching skills and support expecting mothers on their beautiful journey into motherhood? Island Prenatal’s Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training courses offer you the opportunity to specialize in the transformative practice of prenatal yoga and postnatal yoga.
Introducing Prenatal Yoga
Prenatal yoga is a unique and rewarding branch of yoga that focuses on nurturing both the physical and emotional well-being of pregnant women. In their comprehensive teacher training, you will gain the knowledge and tools to create safe, effective, and empowering yoga classes specifically tailored to meet the needs of prenatal and postnatal students.
An official prenatal yoga school
As an official registered Prenatal Yoga School, their training program covers a range of topics, including modifications and adaptations of traditional yoga poses for pregnancy, appropriate sequencing and class planning, affirmations to include, guided meditations, effective cueing and adjustments, and prenatal anatomy and physiology.
Their top prenatal yoga course goes beyond the asana practice, emphasizing the importance of creating a nurturing and inclusive space for pregnant women. You will gain insights into effective communication, creating a supportive community, and offering compassionate guidance throughout the prenatal and postnatal journey.
By completing your Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training, you will not only enhance your own teaching skills but also open doors to new opportunities and connections within the perinatal yoga community. Expand your offerings, deepen your expertise, and embark on a journey of transformation for both yourself and the prenatal & postnatal students you will have the privilege to serve.
“Hello, I’m Lauren! I vividly recall the overwhelming panic I felt when confronted with a pregnant student during one of my group yoga classes. Questions flooded my mind: What should I do? Could the poses I had planned harm her or the baby? I was completely flustered, even though I had received prenatal yoga training during my Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program. That moment ignited a determination within me to never experience that helplessness again.
Driven by that experience, I dedicated years to studying prenatal yoga with various teachers and programs. Eventually, I developed my own comprehensive Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training Program tailored for yoga instructors and anyone interested in delving deeper into the world of Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga. Sharing the benefits of prenatal and postnatal yoga has since become one of my greatest passions! I offer both in-person training in Bali and online programs for Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga. If you have any questions or want to embark on this journey with me, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I would love to share this passion with you!”
Who is this course for? This course is for anyone who has previously completed a 200-hour YTT program, something similar, or has a regular practice of yoga and an interest in prenatal and postnatal yoga.

Feedback From Previous Students
“I did my RPYT with Lauren, Island Prenatal Yoga. We got a well prepared manual with a wide range of important information. This includes Pranayama, Meditation, Asanas, Anatomy, Sequences, Teaching skills etc. and I loved every part of it. All the videos and online lectures were great to get more deep into the topic. Lauren is a lovely teacher with knowledge, a good spirit, a big heart and it is possible to ask her questions anytime. I am so happy that I chose Island Prenatal Yoga as my teaching school for my next step in my yoga journey and say THANK YOU for having me. Namasté.” -Theresa
Wow, this course was SO interesting. Lauren is the most compassionate human being ever and she knows exactly what she is talking about. She has helped me so much to understand all that women go through during pregnancy and after. I feel so much more aware and connected to my feminine power and I am so excited to help and support women on their own journey. Thank you for everything!” -Mathilde
“The 85 hour Prenatal and Postnatal teacher training was wonderful! Lauren is a great communicator and extremely supportive. The training prepared me with the knowledge and confidence to teach prenatal, postnatal for moms, and postnatal for mom and baby classes. I am so glad I came across this training and would highly recommend it to others who would like to teach or even just learn a little more about prenatal and postnatal yoga practices and safety.” -Dani
