Sattva Yoga is a registered prenatal yoga school. 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.
Tuition is USD $1,200 (standard room) or USD $1,300 (deluxe room).

The Sattva mom is strong, 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 are 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 prenatal experience and of conscious birth and motherhood.
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 on Earth.
In this training, you will learn the tools to work in alignment with wisdom. You experience the breath, movement, sound, and mudras that support mothers in staying centered and peaceful and to establish a spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical foundation that reaches far beyond pregnancy. 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 and all will come away with beautiful practices for themselves and to share with others. This training is also lovely for any mothers and who would enjoy being in a supportive space to connect and move through pregnancy and birth related issues. It is also sweet for yogis supporting their daughters and granddaughters through the pregnancy and birth experience.
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.
