Welcome to the Prenatal Yoga Institute

We offer professional trainings for aspiring prenatal yoga teachers and seasoned prenatal yoga teachers alike. The Prenatal Yoga Institute adheres to the highest standards of prenatal yoga training and education. We do this by offering the latest in perinatal research and childbirth education to insure teachers the safest and most effective ways to educate and inspire students.

MISSION

We believe that prenatal yoga teachers are birth workers.
As birth workers, our goal is to achieve the best birth outcomes by offering classes that engage expecting mothers, while educating them on the full spectrum of benefits related to yoga.
We believe that prenatal yoga should be tailored specifically for the expecting mother, not just offer modifications.
We believe in inspiring teachers to offer the most comprehensive, anatomically accurate, safe, and educational classes.
