Prenatal/Postpartum Teacher Training


at Zen Yoga Annex (1824 N Milwaukee ave Chicago, IL 60647)

Join Nicole Belica, Rachel Belkov, Veronica Stevens, and Alece Demaray as they share their wealth of knowledge and expertise in teaching pregnant populations. This program is fully approved through the Yoga Alliance for your RPYT-85 credentialing.
This hybrid program is designed for both the certified yoga instructor looking to increase their range and skillset, as well as other fitness and wellness professionals looking to add knowledge of how to hold space for pregnant bodies.
Our Prenatal Teacher Training program is designed specifically for a hybrid experience. In-person sessions will be offered in Chicago, but the entire training is also available virtually to join from wherever you are! 

Our training will cover the history and philosophy of the yogic practice, and its relationship to all stages of pregnancy. We will go in depth on the anatomical and psychological changes that occur in the pregnant body, and specific methods to support your prenatal students. We will study the Vayus, the Doshas, the Koshas, and anatomical considerations when structuring a prenatal class.

We will go through HOW to sequence a prenatal class to build strength, awareness, and compassion for all birthing people. Our program is designed to EMPOWER you to lead without fear, and to spread the love of yoga to ALL!

This training is designed for the practicing yoga instructor who has already completed a 200 hour training, and is also available for those who want to learn more about prenatal yoga who haven't yet completed their 200 hour training (additional mentor sessions will be available for those without a 200 hour background) 

We would love to have you join us!
