Course Prerequisites (“Is this training appropriate for me?”)

Our Bliss Baby Yoga weekend Prenatal / Postnatal 3-day intensive modules are suitable for yoga teachers, or those currently or planning to undertake yoga teacher training, as well as those working in related fields of women’s health, such as midwives. The prerequisite to enrol in Bliss Baby Yoga’s specialised teacher training courses is at least 6 to 12 months of yoga practice experience (so that you are familiar with the basic yoga postures and practices).

Pregnant women are very welcome to attend, ideally from 14 weeks gestation onwards.

Please note – this 3-day training will not qualify graduates to teach prenatal yoga classes if they are not already a qualified yoga teacher. If you are planning on teaching prenatal yoga classes we recommend undertaking a general Level 1 (200hr minimum) yoga teacher training course in addition to this specialised training (particularly for the purposes of gaining insurance to teach, and learning the basic skills of ‘how to teach’ which are not included in this specialised weekend module).

If you are currently working in a related field of women’s health (such as midwifery) and are planning to use this training to offer Postnatal Yoga practices within the context of your current work, your current insurance may cover you to do this.

If you have any questions regarding your suitability/eligibility to undertake this training please don’t hesitate to contact us through the web contact form or email


Attendance of the weekend modules provides ongoing Professional Development hours / points for Yoga Australia & Yoga Alliance members.

Members of both Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia are required to complete ongoing professional development to keep their membership current.

Registrants of our weekend modules will receive a Completion Certificate and will be able to use the course hours to accrue these necessary professional development hours, as well as to gain the all-important knowledge and skills to launch them into this specialised area of women’s health.

At the end of the course we will also include you on our online directory of qualified pre/postnatal yoga teachers.
