*Yoga students require a prior YA 200 hour teacher training certification. Attendees from childbirth professions such as a midwife or doula, please note, that we will not spend time going over the basics of yoga poses in the course and that the training does not qualify you to teach a pre-natal yoga class without a prior Yoga Alliance standard teaching certification. It will however, give you invaluable knowledge and tools to help support your own professional practice. Participants of the course are asked to attend / sit in on 3 pre-natal classes prior to the training.
