This class is a supportive space to connect with others who are at all stages of pregnancy and early caretaking.

As a minimum requirement to teach this class, your teacher has successfully completed both a 200-hour yoga teacher training and an 85-hour prenatal yoga training, and is a registered prenatal yoga teacher (RPYT) with Yoga Alliance.
