Creating Better Birth Experiences
Online Teacher Trainings and Workshops
Dig deep into the world of prenatal yoga, pregnancy anatomy, childbirth education, postnatal yoga, and much much more as Jennifer More shares information and experience from her extensive career working with prenatal and postpartum people as well as her over 10,000 hours spent with laboring women as their doula. This depth of experience has been distilled down, researched, filmed, and edited in to a concise package designed to teach students what they need to know to safely teach prenatal and postnatal yoga – or just to learn much more about their bodies as they prepare for their own pregnancies.
This certification course is offered in 2 parts:
Part 1: Pre-recorded Course Content
Students will watch 60 hours of pre-recorded videos. These videos can be watched at any convenient time. We just ask that students have watched the course content for each section before the corresponding Live Zoom Sessions. Each video is well organized, covers a specific topic, and is presented at a length that allows students to fit this course into their busy schedules.
Part 2: Live Zoom Sessions
Students will also meet with Jennifer and other students for 20 hours. These live meetings allow students to ask questions, practice asana, and generally learn more about each section of the pre-recorded course content.
The Certification Track includes:
- 60+ hours of video instruction
- 155-page manual
- 20+ hours of interactive video time with Jennifer and your groups
- Individual assessment of teaching techniques
- Course completion certification
- Eligible for Yoga Alliance RPYT if you are an active member
- Private Facebook group membership
