Sattva Yoga Academy Prenatal
Sattva Yoga is a registered prenatal yoga school. Created in partnership with Anand, this prenatal teacher training meets Yoga Alliance requirements of an 85-hour prenatal yoga teacher training program.
Sattva Yoga is committed to the healthy future of babies, mothers, and women and to creating a community where they are able to be authentic, to be heard and understood, and to be supported and uplifted by others. The intention of Sattva Yoga prenatal teacher training, immersions, and classes is to provide safe, simple, and effective tools and support for a healthy pregnancy; to care for all women involved with a woman’s pregnancy; to create a community of understanding, equality, empowerment, love, and care; and to set an example. The future of humankind is depending on how we guide and guard the souls that will be arriving on Earth. Becoming a mother is the most trans formative experience in a woman’s life. The Sattva Mom is strong and graceful, open hearted and loving-kind. The way she carries herself through the time of pregnancy will determine her path from womanhood to motherhood. The way we were cared for in the womb and the way we are born will often determine the way we live. Conscious pregnancy, birthing, and post-birth care creates a healthy foundation for the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well-being of a mother and her baby.
Together, we can connect with the importance of the Divine prenatal experience and of Divine, conscious birth and motherhood. It is an honor to be in the presence of a pregnant woman. As prenatal guides, we have the opportunity to share the most powerful and vulnerable time in a woman’s life. We are given the chance to guide, teach, and support a new soul in having a smooth experience in the womb of his/her mom and a soft landing here on Earth. Everything the mom is experiencing in her pregnancy will be felt by the child. Pregnancy is a time in which is important for the mom-to-be to experience light and supportive spaces, a peaceful mind, a joyful and nourished heart, and trust into her ability to be able to give birth in the most natural way possible. Through the tools of movement, sound, pranayama, mudra, and meditation she can be given the chance to establish a spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical foundation that reaches far beyond her pregnancy. In this training and in all Sattva Yoga prenatal immersions and classes, you learn the tools to work in alignment with Divine spiritual wisdom. Besides the postures and movements for pregnancy, you experience the importance of sound and mudras that will support the mothers to help themselves stay centered and peaceful.
You learn about yourself and the gifts you can bring into a mom’s life. Training is open to all, both yoga teachers and community members with an interest in learning Sattva prenatal practices and techniques. No prerequisites are required. Yoga teachers who already have a 200-hour teacher training certification from a registered yoga school may complete this training and earn their 85-hour prenatal teacher training certification.
