AboutThis Program

Our 9-day intensive module offers an in-depth and diversified program which allows you to study in an inspiring natural landscape. Our days begin early in the morning with prenatal fitness workshops in the great outdoors before landing on our mats for our trimester intensive classes.

In this training you will learn how to design sequencing for all three trimesters blending prenatal anatomy, use of props, pranayama, visualization and postures which will enable you to lead safe, playful and informed classes for your students.

Our speaker series will also allow you to dive into prenatal subjects that you will be able to encompass into some of your teachings, giving you tools to design unique and safe classes for your students.

We will also discuss stories in regards to women empowerment through birth, and openly discuss advantages of having a yoga practice during all three pregnancy trimesters. 

 

What our team covers during the training:


  • Anatomy for all three trimesters, including mishaps that can take place during and after pregnancy;

  • Postures recommended for each trimester (why we use this pose, alignment when pregnant, support and contraindications)

  • Trimester sequencing for a gentle, intelligent and intuitive flow that is safe for the pregnant body;

  • A variety of pranayama, meditation and visualisation techniques to prepare the body for delivery and postpartum recovery;

  • How to adjust your teaching skills and methodology to accommodate changing bodies,  fluctuating hormones and fears related to pregnancy;

  • How to create and hold sacred feminine space to allow students to become confident in their transforming bodies, embracing the life growing inside with no fear;

  • How to create community through yoga via Pregnant Goddess classes etc.

  • And so much more!
 

You will also experience a series of conferences with experienced prenatal healthcare professionals during lunch hours that will cover prenatal massage, prenatal nutrition, prenatal ayurveda and prenatal acupuncture.

As for the practicum, you will have up to 3 months post-training to complete these hours before obtaining your Yoga Alliance RPYT certificate issued by JUNA Yoga.

This training was well-rounded, and included several knowledgeable and experienced collaborators from the wellness industry. Faithful to yogic traditions and values, this thorough prenatal yoga teacher training offers all the tools necessary to guide and accompany women safely on and off the mat.

3- Does pricing include lodging and meal plan?

We hope to one day provide an all-inclusive Yoga Teacher Training with lodging and meal plan, but in the meanwhile students do have to arrange for their own accommodations and meals in Mont-Tremblant during the training.  The most popular choices for our past students have been the Mont-Tremblant hostel and renting a house/chalet as a group.  Once you register for the training, we give you access to our private Facebook group where you can chat with the other students and sort out arrangements for lodging, carpooling and groceries. Our team is also always available to assist you in this process.

Here are some other suggestions for lodging should you need a place to stay during your training:

La Sauvage

Mont-Tremblant Youth Hostel

Windigo Village

L’achillée Millefeuille

Grand Lodge
