Overview of Prenatal 1
Friday late afternoon, enjoy a welcome circle and general Q&A, and experience a prenatal yoga practice for yourself with lots of how’s and why’s.
Travel through the trimesters
On Saturday, we delve into the five Ma Yoga therapeutic principles of alignment and learn to apply them to the physiological and emotional changes that arise in the different trimesters. Learn variations of poses to accommodate mamas changing body, and optimal sequencing and theming for pregnancy.
Practice teaching and delve into labor
- discover empowering birth and labor-related philosophies and labor-related principles
- learn to create and weave themes through classes as you teach each other
- explore the pro’s and con’s of different prenatal yoga career options
- explore the needs of and opportunities for new moms and how to teach Mom + Baby
- receive more than ten fun preschool yoga sequences
- celebrate the completion of the Yoga of Pregnancy and Postpartum training!
It’s just a great class to learn about the body and all the changes your body goes through. The amount of knowledge that I got this weekend would be so valuable to so many women in this community and in the world.
I can use this knowledge for every type of yoga class
I feel blessed to have been given this gift. Thank you Jess!
One of my personal goals as an instructor is to have authentic themes. That said, I had a major break through last weekend. I am so grateful for the tools I was given to make my teaching more meaningful, and I have already began to incorporate what I learned into my sequences and class prep.
Amazing & light-filled weekend!
It was tremendously helpful to engage with this material a second time, particularly after starting a prenatal class here. I hope you can come back and do this again next year!

More comfortable as a woman
I thank you for inspiring me to help women to feel more like themselves during pregnancy through the practice of yoga.
Warmth, community and support
I cannot wait to become a certified Ma Yoga instructor!

Perspective has shifted
I came in simply to learn to be a better teacher to my pregnant students and left with a new appreciation for the birth process and for life in general. I now see the beauty in both pregnancy and giving birth.
Changed the way I teach
The emphasis on principles of alignment and awareness of kinaesthetics has changed the way I teach and the direction I give my students.
Informative and inspiring
Jessica demystifies some of the misinformation about prenatal yoga, and inspires women to listen to themselves and their baby and to honor this unique and special time.
I'm looking forward to the next weekend we get to spend together expanding our minds and hearts further.
Thank you, thank you. If the timing is right I will take it again, that’s how much I enjoyed it.
Just blew me away
This was just what I needed and did not even know and I walk away with deep connection and great trust in what I am doing.
Clarity, humor, and humility
I liked your softer style combined with clarity, humor, and humility.
Renewed sense of awe
Thank you Jessica for a wonderfully informative and moving weekend!
Second Prenatal TT
A year later, another training with Jessica gave me additional teaching tools. I left with a deepening understanding of how we can help pregnant women use their yoga practice to move their bodies from a place of strength and beauty.
Focused on what they could do
They both did full practices that night and were able to practice safely at the same time. It was awesome!
Attending her prenatal teacher training was inspiring and made me want to learn more and more! this workshop is important for us as women (and man - Danny!) and as yoga teachers.
Made me feel so welcome
This training allows teachers of all levels to feel more confident when a pregnant student steps into their classroom.
Helped me connect with my femininity
Thank you Jessica for sharing your wisdom and energy and for opening new doors for women to explore their pregnancy in a safe and creative way!
Confident and inspired
I do not know where the path may lead for me in prenatal in the future, but I do know that I love teaching it, and now feel even more confident and inspired.
Alive and inspired
She reached out to every one of us with compassion and warmth, and we learned so much. There is something uniquely strong, wise, and supportive about a group of women who come together to learn about pregnancy and mothering.
We were in excellent hands with her!
Reflected my experience
She has incredible respect for pregnancy and her intelligent alignment notes proved helpful to me in labor–internal rotation plus external rotation = more space for baby–even when he is moments away from greeting the world!
My understanding of theming has deepened
Through your course my understanding of theming has deepened so much… I love how you shared with us how you set a theme for your day & how you use your personal daily theme for your classes… You gave me a lot.
Linda C (From B.C. Canada)
Yesterday, I was so excited to apply what I have learned and left class feeling so empowered because I used my theme for a regular vinyasa class. It was so intense and amazing!
I can't wait for your future trainings and to be involved in this process. Thank you so much again for your love, power, and wisdom!
Deepened my teaching techniques.
Based on this I can teach easily. It’s fun!
I feel connected to sacred life
Don’t hesitate. Do it! Be receptive. Have faith in the process. It is a gift to me personally and to ALL.
Ma Yoga principles are golden
I have to admit that at first it was difficult to wrap my head around the five principles, but then it really clicked! It helped everything fall into place for me in my teaching.
