I feel like doing your prenatal training and spending time with you, Kirsten, and the other beautiful women was a spark and motivation to continue on the path of what I know is my life's work... Supporting mothers! I am beyond excited about the next step of the doula program, and I am making more time to write, too! I am so grateful for all your love and support, which gave me confidence to move forward in my path. Thank you :) Logan
If you would like your heart to feel shiny, happy, and full, you should consider the prenatal yoga teacher training with Katie and Kirsten. I went in expecting to gain the necessary knowledge to teach prenatal yoga and left with so much more, including 10 new best friends. This training was extremely empowering and informative. I feel that Katie and Kirsten are a wealthy fountain of knowledge and it is their destiny to share what they have experienced with the world. Their openness and willingness to share is undeniable and genuine. They truly care about each student succeeding. Thank you to Katie and Kirsten for this one of a kind experience. I will never forget it. Erin

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: PRENATAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Do I need to complete both Part I and Part II at the same time? Do I need to do both parts with Yo Mama?
In order to certify with Yoga Alliance, you do have to complete both parts at the same school. It's the only way to make sure you get all the requirements (different schools might do things in an entirely different order- leaving you with gaps in some areas, and overlap in others). We offer the training at least 2x a year in the Denver/Boulder area, as well as 1-2x a year in other locations. You may do Part I, begin to practice teaching, and then complete Part II at another time. In order to certify with Yoga Alliance, you do need to complete both parts.
Motherhood and babies are celebrated and welcome in any of our trainings. We know that it can be tough to juggle babies and do the training. What we usually suggest is having your baby with you part time (both for the baby- and for the mama- to take in some of the information without having to take care of your baby the whole time). Mommy and me is more possible to have the baby constantly. Prenatal- it can be a little more challenging, since Prenatal Yoga doesn't usually include babies. So having a friend or someone there to watch the baby sometimes, and incorporating the baby part time is usually best all around.
Is it best to complete a 200 hour training before completing prenatal training?
Many of our students decide to do our training first, and then complete a 200 Hour at at later date. The benefit of this order is having Prenatal Yoga be your 'first yoga language.' Many experienced teachers that come to our training have a little bit of 'unlearning' to do, to change the way they teach to match Prenatal Yoga. Our students that begin with Prenatal training make that style of teaching their base, and then learn the other yoga principles after. So if prenatal is truly your passion, go ahead and do this training first. Both paths work, and we've seen great success with both. Ultimately if you want to register with Yoga Alliance, you will need to have a 200 H certification under your belt. If you are looking for a great 200 hour program, you can do that with Kirsten, one of our teachers.
