Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training w/Utah Prenatal Yoga @ The Yoga Center

The Yoga Center is hosting the

Utah Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training program

Begins April 21st!

Registration is now open for the Spring 2016 Teacher Training session with Utah Prenatal Yoga at The Yoga Center in Holladay. This comprehensive training is a Yoga Alliance 85 hour RYS that will enable you to teach prenatal yoga with confidence and skill. Upon completion, eligible graduates can register with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT).


Take your teaching to another level- Learn the art, science and heart of teaching prenatal yoga.

What graduates are saying about Utah Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Experience: 

I would 100% recommend the Utah Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. I’ve been teaching yoga for 10+ years and walked away with so much understanding and insight into the world of prenatal yoga. Practicing yoga is invaluable during pregnancy and I feel so lucky to be able to share what I have learned with my yoga students!
Gygi K, Provo, UT


Utah Prenatal Yoga teacher training was a life changing experience for me. It took an in-depth look into pregnancy and the birth experience and prepares any teacher–new or experienced, young or old, mother or not– to safely take moms-to-be into their own body, exploring poses and breath, during pregnancy. Be prepared to dive into your own birth experiences and to celebrate and embody the goddess within all women.

Common Questions about the Teacher Training

Do I need to be a registered yoga teacher to take the course?
It is not required that you are a RYT in order to participate in the training. While it is helpful to have a foundation of yoga basics, it can also be just as helpful to start fresh with the prenatal content. Teaching a prenatal yoga class is different than teaching a traditional yoga class and in some cases there is an element of relearning/unlearning aspects of yoga instruction in order to teach a prenatal class. Either way, a passion for teaching expecting women is the only requirement. Please be aware that in order to apply with the Yoga Alliance for the RPYT status it is required that you first hold the RYT designation. If you have questions or concerns about how that works please contact Alicia at

I have a new baby/nursing baby/infant, can I have my baby with me during the training?
Yes! We are here to support motherhood! If you have an infant or nursing baby we will make it as easy as possible for you to meet each others needs while participating in the training. You are invited to make arrangements for a support person to assist you while you are in training sessions and babes are welcome to join us when they need to eat (or be cuddled).I am a birth worker, is this training appropriate for me?
Birth workers are welcome to attend the training! A clear intention about how the information and training will be applied to your current practice is suggested. This training will supply you with a fun and effective set of skills that you can share with your clients- a strong understanding of optimal alignment, breath exercises and affirmations from the yoga traditions.

I have a schedule conflict and need to miss one of the days, is that possible?
For most people, the commitment to a teacher training means that there will be schedule conflicts that have to be worked through. Because the training follows the Yoga Alliance contact hour requirements it is suggested that you are present for all of the training days/times. If there is an exceptional circumstance arrangements can be made for you to make up the contact hours.
