Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”
― Rumi

Become a Yoga Teacher for Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is a very sacred time in a woman’s life. Life is growing inside her body and she is a walking, breathing temple for this life to enter earthside. Everything she surrounds herself with will ultimately be the beginning of her child’s life experience, and future generations to come. Experience the Magic of Transformation!


Mystical Mama Prenatal training is more than a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Course, it is an opportunity to dive deep into the experience of what it really means to be pregnant, in all of its facets. We uncover the “hidden” mysteries of our cycles and rhythms with the earth, moon, and universe. We live and breathe each of the four phases or trimesters during pregnancy and motherhood while in tune with the four directions of the ancient medicine wheel. Every aspect of pregnancy and prenatal yoga will be incorporated with the goal of feeling fully confident to work with this very special population.

Who is a Mystical Mama?

She is the expression of the divine feminine within all of us. She walks on the Earth gently with beauty and grace. She knows the world is her creation as she dreams her world into being. She knows her true soul’s purpose and lives each day blossoming into the path she was meant to walk. She is in harmony with the natural rhythms of life and the cycles of the moon, oceans, and stars. She walks barefoot on the moist Earth and sees clearly through the dark, embracing the sweetness of the air as the sun sets and the silence of the night reveals it’s secrets. Her womb is the ultimate source of creativity, the dynamic flow of life force energy. The sacredness of her nature is expressed through love and magnified in her relationships with others and the natural world.


When she becomes pregnant with the life of a baby within, she radiates as she has never before. Her aura glows and vibrates with her two heartbeats and is felt from all that surrounds her. The wisdom within her ripens as her belly becomes full. This ancient knowledge seeps into her skin from the soil beneath and dances out in the harmony of her voice, felt in the warmth of her actions and is known in the child within. This child is born into the life of a sage.

Dive Into the Sacred Feminine

Learn to teach yoga to pregnant women, support them through pregnancy and birth, and be a part of raising consciousness in our future generations.


In this Journey, we will flow through the trimesters as well as through the Peruvian Medicine Wheel as we dive into the Divine Feminine and Mother Archetype. As we move through our own transformations we reveal what it is we are called to share with the future children of the world, inside of the pregnant mother.


Mothers hold the seeds of the next generation of conscious creators inside the heart of their wombs, making it imperative for us to hold space for this transformation. Within this very sacred time of being pregnant a mother is a moving temple and all that she thinks, eats, and does is imprinted on the baby inside of her. Yoga provides a precious gift of translating that sacredness into everyday life and into the baby within, motherhood and beyond.


Yoga teachers, doulas, midwives, birth workers, nurses, mothers, or anyone wanting to learn more about this sacred time, are all invited to share in this Mystical Mama Journey.


We will be joined by local midwives as they share their wisdoms of being a Midwife in Guatemala, all called to this way of life by their dreams. We will also be connected to Midwives in the Western World as they share their own wisdoms of being with pregnant women before, during, and after birth.


You will leave this training feeling empowered and prepared to guide pregnant women on their journey, either through yoga classes or in a support role. As well as gaining in depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, the fundamentals of building a safe prenatal class and the importance of nutrition, we will break down numerous common poses in detail. We will also explore the importance of ancient wisdoms, such as placenta as medicine and undisturbed birth. This training is a merging of the heart and science of becoming a mother and how yoga can serve as both.

Core Curriculum

Mystical Mama Yoga is the yoga of spiritual practice. True to its Mystical Mama roots, this prenatal practice is derived from different yoga traditions, such as Ashtanga Vinyasa, Sivananda and Iyengar. It is designed beyond form and tradition and aims to encompass the essence of yoga and spirituality as a practice of Union. We guide each class with ease, intention and with the highest regard for the pregnant mother. We focus on the roots of our yoga tradition, where yoga is used as an instrument to reveal the truth of our existence as spiritual beings. Our Yoga Teacher Training is a holistic program; to understand Yoga you must first understand Self… body, mind, and spirit. We use the four directions of the Native American Medicine wheel as a guide and foundational structure for the course. Within each direction, we will focus on different types of movement, nourishment and meditation to meet the mother Goddess.

Students Testimonials

“Following my own postpartum journey I have felt a strong desire to provide a space, a community where women feel safe to share as they learn about all the newness of motherhood. In today’s society, in America especially, postpartum in particular can be a lonely experience for mothers that are not surrounded by family or other mothers like our ancestors were. My goal now that I am certified in prenatal and postnatal is to provide a circle where women can share anything. A place where we share birth stories and new life as we move again and learn about our bodies after having a baby. A place to feel less isolated.”


“After my own experience having a baby and taking Prenatal/Postnatal with SYI and Mystical Mamas, I am very called to help women find their own voice in their postpartum journey, find themselves after having a baby as they navigate new motherhood and allow women to have some time just for themselves. A mom group meets yoga class for anyone postpartum. A no holds barred crew where we are not trying to get our pre baby body back but instead are learning about our post baby self as we move our bodies.”
