  • Do I need to be a yoga teacher to take the prenatal yoga teacher training?
    No, you don't! Anyone interested in prenatal yoga can take the course. However, you do need to be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) first if you want to have the credentials of Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) through Yoga Alliance (YA), or if you want to take the class for YA Continuing Education Credit.
  • Do I need to take The Physical Body in Pregnancy course first?
    No, you don't. You can take The Energy Body in Pregnancy first if you'd like. It's your choice! Both courses require 10 hours of practicum, totaling 20 hours, whether it's class observation or practice teaching. Trainees will complete class observation before beginning practice teaching. Group classes offer trainees the opportunity to observe or practice teach. Check the schedule at the Class page.
  • Do I need to be an avid yoga practitioner to take the prenatal yoga teacher training?
    It is helpful for you to have a good working knowledge of yoga and the ability to do basic poses in order to get full benefit of the training.
  • What is required for the credentials RPYT?
    If you want to be a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher, a credential given by Yoga Alliance, you must first be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) by completing an approved 200-hour yoga teacher training. You must also complete both Levels 1 & 2 (85 hours of training), including all coursework, and: - 10 hours prenatal class observation - 10 hours practice teaching prenatal classes Once you have completed Levels 1 & 2, observation, and practice teaching, you will be issued a certificate from MPYC. YA further requires 30 post-training teaching hours that you can complete at MPYC's group classes or elsewhere, before the RPYT credential is granted.
