So who is a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training For?

YogaKoh PYTT

Our Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training holds a special place in the heart of our founder, Jolie Manza. Let's kick things off by listening to her insights:

‘I struggle to find the right words sometimes to describe how transformative it was to educate myself on the intricacies of the maternal journey. I consider myself a very informed person when it comes to information about the body, movement, and how it all works together. But when I look back, I realize how little I actually knew about the whole journey of pregnancy and childbirth. I went into it thinking, I knew everything I needed to know. When I came out the other side however, I realized how under-informed I was.  There was so much I could have learned to better prepare myself as well as practices and knowledge that would have really helped me during the postpartum stage. 

Therefore, it has become a great passion of mine to make sure material of this nature is available for people. It is information that I believe should be brought into mainstream education as it can instill confidence and empower people to make better decisions about one of the most important rituals that is shared worldwide. This program has a deep and fulfilling place in my heart and I feel very proud to have it out in the world.

So if you are someone that is an expecting parent, if you are a movement professional, if you are in medicine and are curious about different ways to add to your database of information and want to offer holistic practices to your clients, your patients, your students, or yourself, this course can really introduce that next layer of knowledge. Please reach out if you have any questions, and it would be an absolute honor to speak to you.’
