Certification

Pregnancy & Birth is a time of transformation and a pathway to awakening. A time of miracle and awe as we witnesses the becoming of a new being inside our bodies. This transformation happens  daily – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is both difficult and wonderful. The practices and wisdom of yoga are a profound support to people going through this life passage.

To certify as a Birthing Mama instructor one must complete both Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1 comprises the first 45 hours of the training, which is organized into Module 1 and 2.  Level 2 comprises the second 45 hours of the training, which is organized into Module 3 and 4.  

 

To teach public group classes, one must also have a 200-Hr Yoga Teacher Training Certification in any tradition. You do not need an additional 200-Hr teacher training to bring this wisdom into your private practice with doula, midwifery or nursing clients, although it is recommended. 

If you are looking for a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training, Corinne is also the lead teacher of the yearly Embodyoga® 100hr In-Depth Study and 200hr Teacher Training. More information can be found here.

Birthing Mama is a registered school with the National Yoga Alliance. To register as an RPYT, read on here for more information

One must complete all homework requirements to receive certification. You can see all homework requirements here
