Pregnancy Yoga Taster – what’s not going to work for your pregnant student and what you can do
Most yoga classes are predominantly female and at some stage some of those students are pregnant, yet many yoga teachers feel really nervous about having a pregnant student in the class. Maybe you know certain things are not advised but you’re not sure which or you don’t know why, or how to modify.
Your 200hour course was amazing but there just wasn’t time to cover everything, you just know enough to have the feeling you don’t know enough.
This short workshop will give you three key things to avoid with your pregnant students. I’ll let you know what’s involved in training as a pregnancy yoga teacher and answer any questions you have.
I will also guide you on how to make the decision if your current class is the right one for them at this time, and what to do if its not.
We’ll do a short pregnancy yoga practice, because its all about the practice and end the session with a sweet relaxation suitable for pregnancy.
Pregnancy can be a really beautiful time in a person’s life but it can also be challenging, isolating and a roller coaster of emotions, upheavals and life changes.
Yoga teaches us to use our breath to anchor us, connect with our bodies to feel centred and self aware and relax and let go when we need to find peace and rest. It is an amazing support for times of change.
- Free guide to poses and practices – traffic lights, what’s good to good, what to be careful with and anything not advised in a general class
- Fun workshop, with supportive, empowering environment so you can inform yourself and decide what’s going to work best in your classes.

Empower yourself to support your students and build their confidence in themselves and their bodies. Meet other yoga teachers and share a lovely session of pranayama, asana, and learning together.
What yoga teachers are saying..
Clare is calm and calming, wise, strong, funny, compassionate and easy to approach. Her knowledge of yoga and the body is astounding. I hope I have the opportunity to attend one of her courses in the very near future.
Clare is who I was honoured to be taught by and receive my Pregnancy YTT from. A genuinely beautiful lady, who is a specialist in this field! For anyone thinking of doing this, you won’t ever regret it.
I completed pregnancy yoga teacher training with Clare (virtually) and would highly recommend it. It was very practical with lots of discussion too. She is a great mentor and inspired me to be more confident working with people during their pregnancy.
