Santosha’s Pre + Postnatal & Children’s + Teens’ Yoga Teacher Training Intensives allow yogis to share their knowledge with all ages. In our 3-day intensive, you’ll learn the skills to support and empower children, new mothers and pregnant women. Santosha’s Post+Pre Natal & Children + Teen Yoga Teacher Training Certification is accredited to provide registered teachers with 30 continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.
The Santosha Prenatal, Postnatal, Children’s and Teens’ Yoga Intensive is an inspiring course that will provide you with the skills and knowledge to share the benefits of yoga with new and expectant mothers, children and teens. The course is suitable for anyone interested in enriching their understanding of the applications of yoga in these areas, whether your goal is to practice as a specialist yoga teacher, apply the knowledge to your work in a range of fields, or simply to deepen and evolve your own yoga and life experience. Santosha’s pre and postnatal course modules are formulated to provide students with the knowledge, confidence and holistic understanding of appropriate asanas and practices for safely teaching pregnant women during and after pregnancy.
Prenatal Yoga classes provide an opportunity for expectant mothers to develop greater vitality and awareness of their blooming body that is home for two, as well as to deepen their relationship with their unborn baby. Gentle postures, breath work, vocal toning and meditation are taught to cultivate flexibility, calmness and confidence in preparation for labor and childbirth. Women are assisted to access greater relaxation, comfort and enjoyment. Calmness and flexibility ease the birthing process, thus reducing pain and increasing the joy of giving birth. With prenatal yoga, women prepare for as active, enjoyable and natural a birthing experience as possible. The course provides practitioners with the skills to empower mothers and enrich their experience during this transformational time in their lives.
The children and teen yoga modules offer a comprehensive experiential-based training that will give you the building blocks to specialise in teaching children’s or teens’ yoga as a career. This is fundamentally one of the most important and vital areas of yoga teaching, because teaching our children and youth will help to create a profound change in our world. Planting the seeds of peace in our children will allow them to experience the benefits of yoga, share them and practice them throughout their lives! Teaching our teenagers yoga can provide them with beneficial lifelong tools to help them cope with daily stresses, navigate exams and deal gracefully with the increasing pressures placed upon them as they transition into adulthood. By sharing the magic of yoga with the children and youth of today we are helping to create a better world tomorrow, one child at a time.
During this intensive course, you’ll have the opportunity to role play as children in a children’s yoga class, to experience it from a child’s perspective. You’ll also learn how to plan and sequence classes for young children’s drifting attention spans, as well as how to adapt poses to different age groups of children.
Our instructors are some of the most experienced in the field of pre and postnatal yoga in the world. The experience of our instructors in tailoring yoga for pregnancy and for running viable “mums ‘n bubs” yoga businesses of their own mean that you will have the most holistic pre and postnatal yoga module experience possible. Our instructors include: Sharon Little, Sunny Richards-Glasser, Peter Clifford, Nadia Marshall, Kester Marshall, Layananda Saraswati, Anne Marree Bernauer and others .. see practical information for each course. Through the course, you will have the opportunity to forge lasting relationships with your teachers, so that they can further advise you even after the course has ended.
As with most things in life, the PPNCT course couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I fell pregnant a week after completing the course and was fortunate to have been extremely well equipped for a pre and postnatal practice. The PPNCT was a highlight of my time with Santosha, and I was extremely pleased with the depth of material covered in a short amount of time, particularly in relation to prenatal practice. I didn't expect to have said this prior to the course, but the class I am most looking forward to teaching upon my return is prenatal yoga, thanks to the valuable time I had with Sunny during the PPNCT.
What I loved most about the PPNCT training and all the training you did was the absolutely authentic voice you used. Using your own experiences to make the theory of teaching more accessible. You give your students space to be exactly who they are. It’s the most beautiful thing. Always grateful.
The course has been fun and educative. A great way for yoginis to prepare them selves and their students for the journey of pregnancy to motherhood. It gave me a renewed sense of confidence and made me look forward to being pregnant.
Upon completing this course, you will be equipped to practice safely and teach others in a range of diverse settings.
