Welcome to the Ma Yoga® Prenatal Yoga Certification Homepage!
I’m so glad you’re here! If you’re drawn to supporting women on the journey to motherhood and beyond, you’re in the right place.
After years of doing weekend prenatal teacher trainings, I realized the 18 months around birth are so much more than pregnancy do’s and don’ts.
With the right kind of support and guidance, the journey to motherhood can be the journey to our highest Self, or “Ma.”
As teachers, we can provide practices and principles so that women can experience two beautiful births: the birth of their baby, and the mom to this baby.
Whether you want to create your own “Mama Circle,” or you just don’t want to stress when a pregnant woman walks in the class, you’ll feel confident providing support and inspiration for moms-to-be.
Our onsite and online trainings can be taken for Ma Yoga®/Yoga Alliance RPYT prenatal yoga certification, or individually for continuing education.
The comprehensive, 85-hour Ma Yoga Prenatal Certification Program provides the broadest and most effective training in yoga for women in their childbearing years available today. It includes both off the mat and on the mat practices for pregnancy, labor, postpartum and motherhood – and kids too, as well as principles for healing, wellness, and radical vitality for motherhood and beyond.
Below are the trainings in the 85-hour, Yoga Alliance-registered Ma Yoga Prenatal Certification Program. They may be taken in any order for certification:
- Prenatal 1: The Yoga of Pregnancy and Postpartum Weekend Training
- Prenatal 2: The Yoga of Healing for Women Weekend Training
- Ma Mentorship: One-on-one work with a senior Certified Ma Yoga Teacher Trainer
- MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda for Mamas live online course
- Labor Education: either a doula training you take on your own, or our live online course, The Yoga of Birth
- Class writeups: if you are not close to Southern California, you can watch Ma Yoga classes online at www.MaYogaLiving.com
To find out when and where we are offering our Prenatal 1 and Prenatal 2, just go to our Calendar.
If you’re not in the area, we would love to come to a studio near you and offer Prenatal 1 and Prenatal 2! For details about how to make that happen, please connect with Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In whatever form – a free Prenatal Dreams and Visions call with me (schedule yours here), an individual training, or the whole certification journey, I am so excited to support you on your path as a yogi, a teacher and the Ma Goddess that you are!
