Completing the Your Yoga Flow Prenatal YTT does NOT certify or prepare you to teach POSTNATAL classes. Postnatal yoga requires a different body of knowledge and set of practices.
The needs of a postnatal student are often the opposite of the needs of a prenatal student. In prenatal yoga, strengthening is a minor concern and relaxation is a major focus. In postnatal yoga, strengthening is the major focus.
Be mindful of this important difference when it comes to teaching and supporting pregnant people on their pregnancy journey. As prenatal yoga teachers, we are not postnatal certified and should not be providing information in regard to this in our prenatal classes.
