IYTA – Post Graduate Certificate Pre & Post Natal

Total Hours: 150

3 Levels over 4 – 6 months

The International Pre and Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training is offered in a flexible and affordable manner. The course is open to yoga teachers, doulas, midwives, men and women interested in furthering their knowledge of bringing applied yoga techniques to pregnant women and new mothers.

The International Yoga Teachers Association Faculty of senior lecturers includes some of Australia’s most experienced Pre and Post Natal Yoga teachers with multiple Diplomas and qualifications in their respective areas including:

  • pre and post natal yoga
  • nursing and midwifery
  • child birth education
  • hypno-birthing
  • transpersonal psychology
  • lactation consultancy
  • infant massage therapy
  • post natal counselling
  • active birth techniques
  • chiropractors and physiotherapists

The course is endorsed by Yoga Alliance (USA) and Yoga Australia. It is recognised as one of the most thorough and respected pre and post natal yoga teaching courses in the World.

This course is intended for those teachers and professionals who wish to broaden their skills and deepen their knowledge specifically in teaching pregnant women, couples preparing for birth and new mothers – either in dedicated classes or in general classes.

If this Course is not completed or assessments not passed then a certificate of attendance will be granted rather than a full Post Graduate Certificate. The certificate of attendance still reflects CPD points.

The Course is delivered in Three Levels with a combination of home-based study, open book assessments, on-line lectures, and face-to face study weekends held around Australia and the World.

Course Guidelines will be issued on full registration and receipt of payment. If required, Level One and Level Three of the course may be completed via correspondence.

Note – If you are considering applying to become a member of Faculty – and we hope you are – to qualify it’s mandatory that you have completed one of the International Yoga Teacher Association’s Post Graduate Courses, such as this one.
