Blooma Prenatal Yoga Teacher TrainingStudy with Blooma here at Nosara Yoga Institute to become a Prenatal Yoga Teacher.   On this journey, Sarah and Stacy will lead each session with the intention that each individual will have her own experience and find her own voice. The prenatal teacher training provides an abundance of information about labor and birth. In addition to this, we explore why yoga is beneficial at this stage in a woman's journey. Drawing from a rich history of birthing wisdom, this training includes: the birthing community, inner wisdom, prenatal body knowledge, anatomy, wellness, introduction to childbirth education philosophies, the energy system of the chakras, and, of course the depth of the ancient practice of yoga.

During Blooma’s training you’ll learn far more than modifications for pregnancy. You’ll learn about the emotional and physical challenges a woman undergoes during labor and childbirth—and how her prenatal yoga classes help prepare her for that journey. You’ll also explore your own beliefs surrounding birth, taking time to journal and share with others in your training. We’ll practice together, take turns teaching, and developing confidence as teachers.

Blooma Prenatal Yoga Teacher TrainingBlooma's training will focus on the body/mind connection of the prenatal mama.  We will dive into the relationship that the body/mind has to pain and emotions.  We will also uncover layers of anatomy and their relationship to the chakra energy system.  

Drawing from her core belief in the inner strength of women, and the power of the breath, Sarah shares stories and wisdom from both her years of teaching prenatal yoga and from the hundreds of births she has attended as a doula. Stacy shares her knowledge of yoga, meditation, and physical and energetic mindful listening exercises, and how to incorporate these practices into your classes.

If you are currently holding the 200 RYT designation with Yoga Alliance, once you have completed Blooma's pre-natal yoga modules totaling 100 hours at the Nosara Yoga Institute, you will qualify for the RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) designation.
