Teaching Yoga to Pregnant Students

Sally Parkes Yoga and Yoga Hero present a wonderful, insightful, informative session to educate yoga teachers, and yoga teacher trainees about yoga during pregnancy; what to do, what to not do, how to confidently modify your classes, and much more.

This session has been designed for yoga teachers and teachers in training to welcome pregnant students in to their Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Restorative or Yin based classes; being able to teach pregnant students with confidence, yet without negatively affecting the class for the non-pregnant students.

This session will include:

  • Safety considerations for each trimester
  • Confidently modifying common asanas and sequences for each trimester
  • Effective use of props for pregnant students
  • The importance of movement and exercise during pregnancy


Join us for this insightful session, ask Sally any questions you have, and ultimately build your confidence in teaching yoga.

Perfect for:

Any yoga teachers, or teachers in training, who would like to confidently welcome pregnant students in to their classes.



  • £60 for the session
  • £50 for Yoga Hero teachers and trainee teachers
