Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Online
teaching yoga to pregnant students + specialist prenatal classes
The Pregnancy Yoga Training was everything that I wanted it to be. I learnt so much on the course and now feel confident teaching pregnant students, knowing that they are safe and that I can help to guide them through this journey. It felt very special to be learning with such a wonderful group of women, I felt supported and inspired throughout the course.
Thank you Anja!

Online Pregnancy Yoga Teacher training

in Worthing or via Zoom
Due to the current situation with Covid-19, lockdowns and tier system we are offering the Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training via Zoom to the Yoga Alliance Professionals high standards. This course includes a one-to-one mentoring session with me to make sure you feel fully heard and can ask any questions or practice teaching skills.
Support your pregnant yoga students
Learn to support your pregnant yoga students and create yoga classes specifically for pregnant yoginis safely, with educated awareness and creativity.
It can be daunting when a pregnant woman comes into your class. Most of us aren’t educated to understand the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy. Let alone how to safely teach a pregnant person – without either ignoring any essential modification or being excessively “safe”.
This course will give you the confidence to create inspired, uplifting, calming and encouraging pregnancy yoga classes or alternatively integrate a pregnant woman into your regular class or work with her one-to-one.
The journey to motherhood is a very special time in a woman’s life. And her body changes as she is growing a baby/babies, placenta and preparing for labour and birth.
Yoga can be a supporting and powerful practice during the journey to motherhood. To prepare for pregnancy, during pregnancy and for postpartum healing.
This course gives you the knowledge so you can confidently start to
- integrate pregnant students into your class
- teach special pregnancy yoga classes
- one-to-ones for pregnant women
Over two weekends live via Zoom, with some homework and an online portal with yoga videos and lectures you will learn:
- To create safe, uplifting and encouraging pregnancy classes or one-to-ones
- To modify yoga poses for the pregnant body
- Sun salutation and flow during pregnancy
- How yoga can support during pregnancy, labour and birth
- To confident teach pelvic floor awareness and practices
- The ayurvedic and energetic aspects of pregnancy
- How to practise mudra, pranayama, meditation and shavasana with your pregnant students
- The common complaints and contraindications in pregnancy
- To practically teach and plan pregnancy yoga classes
- Have an experienced midwife coming in as a guest lecture sharing anatomy and physiology in pregnancy
- Experience pregnancy yoga classes taught to you as a student
Anja was absolutely fantastic, as a teacher and as a trainer. Her relaxed demeanour allows her students to embrace the new information, ask questions and generally feel comfortable throughout the course. I highly recommend Anja as a trainer as she teaches with compassion, respect and patience. Not only is she a great teacher but her course offers an in depth, factual analysis which is backed up by years and years of experience. All in all, she is great!

About your main teacher Anja Brierley Lange of yogaembodied
I’ve been teaching yoga since 2005 (first graduating in 1998) and soon started to specialise in women’s health, pregnancy and postnatal yoga. My passion led me to co-create, teach and be the course leader on a Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Course in London for several years.
I am delighted to update and give birth to this new Prenatal Course certified by Yoga Professionals UK.
Teaching is a never-ending journey of research, training and practice. I am continuing my professional education being an Ayurvedic Practitioner (BSc, PGDip) which inform my yoga teaching and my approach to pregnancy yoga, specific pregnancy and postnatal trainings with Shiva Rea, Uma Dinsmore Tuli, Birthright and Claire Missingham. Completed various courses including a doula training with Michel Odent and Female Pelvic Floor Training for Birth and Wellness Practitioners.
I have offered classes and private sessions in exclusive spas and members clubs in Chelsea and Knightsbridge to hip studios in East London and community rooms South of the river. Now I am based in Worthing and share my passions by the sea.
Yoga is such an empowering tool during the journey to motherhood. To prepare for pregnancy, during pregnancy and postpartum. To see a woman feeling more confident, trusting her body and getting stronger, stabile yet more flexible in both body, mind and emotions through her yoga practice is why I love what I do.

COVID 19 we and the studio are following updates and recommendations from the government. We aim to continue to keep the course in-person at Salt Water Studio with physical distancing. We want a smaller group max 6-10 (which is in line with ‘social distancing’). However, we are also offering the option to join us via Zoom (or a mix).
However, should the rules changes we will follow the guidelines: either offering online versions/options or a mix (we did this with one person one weekend in the previous course and it worked well). Or if restrictions in numbers first full payments will be offered the space.
Thank you to Lauren Tapp of Laroma therapies for being our pregnant model on the website and for our manual and online learning portal.
