Online pregnancy yoga training for yoga teachers, doulas and pregnant women
Learn how to support pregnant women to reclaim feminine empowerment, trust in themselves and find the confidence to birth joyfully.
Yoga teachers can get a prenatal certification through Yoga Alliance or CPD points with Yoga Australia upon completion of this online training.
I’ve been teaching pregnant women yoga for over 20 years, I’ve attended dozens of births as a doula, and I’ve had four children of my own in incredible, empowering, natural births (I'm currently pregnant with number five!).
In this training I will walk you through the many facets of holding space on the journey of pregnancy for yourself or your students and clients.
I have a huge amount of practical wisdom to share with you.
Human birth is a great gift. Let’s welcome it with due respect, humility and joy.
There is nothing as powerful as a group of women coming together to support one another.
The primal journey of birthing our babies is a pivotal moment in a woman's life.
Join us for the journey into a bountiful, beautiful and blissful pregnancy and labour starting here.

- Or Juliana from Sydney who saw benefits in her yoga teaching career saying, "l am starting my journey as a yoga teacher and still building my personality during my classes. I felt how important it was to make pregnant women feel safe and cared during their practices and this training helped me feel much more confident to teach pregnant women from now on. I have already started this new path and received great feedback from my students! I truly couldn’t recommend it more."
And Emma from the Blue Mountains who took the benefits into the labour room, "Your Yoga of Birth book and online training majorly helped prepare me for labour and birth - honestly a few times during labour I was hearing your voice in my head reminding me of good breathing technique, finding the calm in the space between contractions, making low sounds, and more...! I really believe that these techniques and approaching birth from a spiritual perspective contributed to a relatively fast labour and water birth with no complications. Big gratitude and hugs."
Or Bella who found the course jam-packed with valuable content, "I am loving the course content so much, you are just wonderful!

"I recommend this training time and time again, the return on investment is tenfold!"
"I am in awe of the teachings and wisdom held within Katie’s offerings. I initially joined the Yoga of Birth training to further my yoga studies so I could work safely, confidently, and compassionately with pregnant women, however, I quickly found myself immersed in the richness of ancient wisdom, bountifully littered with aha moments and practical guidance to integrate the teachings into my own work and life.
From the power of knowing your own birth story to becoming informed about the choices available to us as women to make decisions about our own bodies, whether we choose to become mothers in the traditional sense or not, this course has so much value to offer yoga teachers, doulas and women in general (I wish girls were taught this in school!).
My journey through the course has been an unfurling of deep surrender, life-changing knowledge, and reconnection to the innate wisdom within and I am so excited to intertwine these teachings in my own offerings. It is with the most sincere love and gratitude to Katie for holding this space and for all of the women and men who I have gathered with on this journey that I would recommend this training time and time again, the return on investment is tenfold."

"This training really helped me as a professional, to have a better understanding of all the components of birth, but also on a personal level through the birth of my own son!"
"Yoga of birth with Katie was everything, holistic and transformative. I have learned so much from her teachings and this course really helped me as a professional, to have a better understanding of all the components of birth, but also on a personal level through the birth of my own son.
The main thing I always got out of it is her authenticity and feeling of purpose in her teachings. She holds the sacred space of each “class” with empathy, warmth and kindness, creating a real sense of unity and non judgement through the learning process.
Her unique human connection brings coherence to all the course material, that aligns beautifully her offerings in a perfect combination of honest resources, experience and alchemy.
I highly recommend this training with all my heart!"
'Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.'

Will I get a certification?
Yoga teachers can get a prenatal certification through Yoga Alliance or or CPD points with Yoga Australia upon completion of this online training.
Yoga is so important for women no matter where there are on their prenatal or postnatal journey.
Yoga has proven to be a safe and effective practice during pregnancy. It has a whole variety of positive effects on the mother’s body, including developing strength, maintaining fitness and reducing symptoms of pregnancy such as muscle aches, swelling, sciatica, cramps and fatigue.
But even more so, yoga has demonstrated a positive impact on mother's and baby's mind, inducing a sense of inner peace and wellbeing.ENROL HERE

‘When fear overwhelms truth and love, we call it pain. Our spirit as women has all the knowledge and power we need to give birth and to nurture our babies. It is in our genetic coding. It has been there since the beginning of time. You can trust its wisdom.’
Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa
Pregnancy and birthing have been a passion of mine since before I had children of my own. I’m utterly in awe of the miracle that is conception, the growth and birth of human life and the transformation of becoming a Mumma.
It is my absolute privilege to walk this path with you throughout the Yoga of Birth training. This training contains the golden nuggets of information and insight I wish I’d had throughout my pregnancies and the practices of yoga that have served me most deeply. I’m honoured to be a torchbearer of these teachings and I promise to share them with you respectfully and with the dignity they deserve.
Join me on the Yoga of Birth journey as we reclaim women’s power to hold autonomy over our own bodies, faith in our own capacity and support on the path of motherhood.
