Overview 85 hour Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training
The Dolphin Method Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training is a 10 day training which is intended for Yoga instructors* who wish to gain a comprehensive understanding of the unique needs of their pregnant yoga practitioners, and safely guide them through all 3 trimesters of a healthy and active prenatal yoga class as well as addressing the needs of the postnatal student. All qualified graduates of this 85-hour training are eligible for the RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) designation from the Yoga Alliance. After completing this training you are only 2 more training days away from becoming a Doula!
What does this training offer?
In her Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga trainings, Jennifer adapts Vinyasa Yoga for the needs of pregnant women, providing a system that works with the pregnant body without sacrificing the intensity that is needed to prepare for childbirth. This unique approach to prenatal yoga gives pregnant women the opportunity to safely remain active and challenged in their practice. The strengthening that occurs in this Prenatal Yoga practice prepares the necessary muscles for labor and childbirth, often resulting in shorter labor, less pain, fewer interventions, and a decrease in the need for Cesarean sections. Learning to link breath and movements in a constant flow greatly increases the ability for women to work with their bodies, increasing the likelihood of a more natural and positive birth experience.
It is important to know how to teach pregnant women of all fitness levels, from those who just stepped into a yoga class for the first time to experienced practitioners with a strong practice. Jennifer's 18 years of experience as a yoga teacher and extensive experience in guiding pregnant women and training prenatal yoga teachers will be shared with you via classroom lecture, daily prenatal yoga practice, incredible birth and pregnancy stories, and multimedia presentations. She will be your personal guide, as you become an amazing prenatal yoga instructor! The 85 hour Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Training is augmented with a wealth of knowledge about pregnancy, birth, and labor that will give you a more complete understanding and greater confidence in teaching yoga to pregnant women. Because of the extensive information covered in this training the 50-hour Dolphin Doula training can be completed in only two extra days.

The Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio, Ubud, Bali
This is the second prenatal training with Jennifer and hosted by the new Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio in Ubud, Bali.
The Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio encompasses everything that makes Bali magical. It blends the power of nature with the wisdom of the soul. It is a sacred place of harmony, health, and transformation.
As a trainee, you'll spend your days at the studio. The Studio is central in Ubud--right across the street from Bali Buddha. This training is not residential. You have the freedom to find your own place to stay and choose where you want to eat. Resources are listed in our Know Before You Go packet of information.
The island of the gods, Bali and her people is a culture Yoga International magazine describes as 'living yoga.' Spirituality, harmony with nature, peacefulness - these elements embody the Balinese way of life. Ubud, an artist's Mecca, is the cultural heart of Bali. Embedded in rice terraces, temples and powerful energy, at a slight elevation so cooler than the nearby coastal heat, Ubud's climate has turned it into the perfect yogic destination.
