Dru Yoga Prenatal Teacher Training - online post graduate course

6 May, 2022

This comprehensive course is open to all qualified yoga teachers from any tradition. Designed to train graduate teachers in the practical skills to confidently and safely teach yoga classes for pregnant women and accommodate a pregnant woman in a general class. This course is also aimed at those wishing to learn how to modify and adapt yoga practices to be accessible for differing abilities.

We will examine the most common concerns yoga teachers have when embarking into this special area of teaching and demonstrate the fulfilling role of a Dru prenatal yoga teacher.

This training explores how to empower women to trust in the miracle of birth and utilise the yogic techniques to face the challenges of pregnancy, labour and birth.

The course will be held over two 3 day module weekends with over 30 hours live on-line sessions plus extra information pre recorded. 

All course materials including the course manual, video recordings and handouts are accessed via a Student Online Learning Platform called Thinkific
