Drawing on a combined total of over 25 years teaching Prenatal yoga, Katie and Kirsten have lead dozens of trainings together and welcomed successful graduates from all over the globe.

Throughout the course of the training you will dive deep into the world of mamas and babies and learn the skills to artfully teach yoga to pregnant women.  Learn more about yourself as a woman and as a teacher.  In addition to being extremely informative and practical, this training is a transformational journey.  Not only do women emerge as Prenatal teachers, but as stronger yoga teachers overall.  Through daily practice teaching and constructive feedback, we support women in finding their authentic voice and teach from a place of embodied presence.  We will help you empower women through their journey into motherhood and build communities that last a lifetime.

From our students:

“Of all the trainings on yoga and childbirth I have attended in the past 2 years this one was by far the BEST!!! So comprehensive, so thorough, so insightful. Each day I felt eager to arrive to class and each evening I left class feeling deeply fulfilled. It never felt like “learning”. It was tremendously fun, hands on, and engaging. I feel very well prepared and inspired to teach with confidence, clarity, and grace. If you are on the fence at all…JUST DO IT!!!! It will literally change your life 🙂 Katie and Kirsten are the best and you would be honored just to be in their presence.”  Saleemah, Orlando
“I would definitely recommend this training to a friend. I would tell them to be prepared to grow as a teacher and a woman. The amount of knowledge and love and confidence I gained in such a short period of time is nothing short of amazing!”– Samantha Forrest

“I am taking all I have learned and start sharing it in the world.  I am teaching 5 classes a week starting this week with maybe more coming soon.  Very exciting.  I think of you all the time and apprecitate your vision in the world! ”   Winslow, Utah
