Prenatal Teacher Trainings
Prenatal Teacher Training Primer *Step ONE*
Prenatal Yoga Primer
Perhaps you know you want to work with pregnancy and would like to focus on teaching prenatal yoga. Maybe you’re pregnant and would like to understand how to work with your practice through the trimesters.
Or perhaps, if a pregnant woman walked in the door to your regular hatha class, your eyes might resemble a deer in headlights. As teachers, we want to help our students, we want to keep them safe and we want to provide a high quality service. However, most initial teacher trainings simply do not have the time to cover much about pregnancy.
This Prenatal Yoga Primer course aims to deepen your abilities as a teacher and prepare you to meet your pregnant students with confidence.
In this course, you will learn:
- The Do’s, Don’ts and Maybes of Prenatal Yoga
- How to provide differentiated instruction in a group class
- Basic understanding of pregnancy anatomy and physiology plus the application to yoga asana
- Common discomforts in pregnancy and how to work with them
- Props 101 and working with a changing body shape
You will also have time for practice teaching, which allows you to brainstorm and troubleshoot with your peers. Allow your teaching to be rejuvenated as you explore another facet of how yoga can benefit the public.

More About the training
Beauty Blossom Birth is the brain child of Stacy Wooster who realized through birthing her own three babies that the cycle(s) of motherhood needs continual support and nourishment and that yoga is an excellent vehicle for self-care. Yoga promotes mindfulness and everyone can do it!
She looked around for continued education options and saw a vacuum throughout the central and southern parts of the United States. Beauty Blossom Birth was created from a passion to make resources more widely available to both teachers and expecting families.
The lead teacher for the program, Stacy has worked with pregnancy through multiple modalities since 2002 and has mentored yoga teachers on the finer points of working with pregnancy since 2010. She has a past in education and in her post-baccalaureate training, she learned curriculum design and how to reach the learner in a way that takes understanding and knowledge deeper.
She wrote the curriculum for Beauty Blossom Birth while pregnant with her third child. She practiced the teachings during her pregnancy and also worked with her clients & students, receiving feedback along the way. The curriculum and school application was mailed off to Yoga Alliance while she rode the contractions of prodromal labor. The program was quickly approved and in May 2012, the first Registered Prenatal Yoga School in Texas was born!
Stacy recognizes how a group of people can move the world, so she has sought out other amazing yogis, scholars and health care professionals as collaborators to produce the juiciest coursework for you.
It would be an honor to have you join us.
