Who is this training for?

Our YogaBellies Teacher Training courses are open to everyone. You may be joining because you want to add new skills to our existing yoga teaching or you may be another type of fitness or health professional wishing to embrace YogaBellies techniques in your work.

How is the training delivered?

Having had some pretty deplorable ‘online’ training experiences myself, I wanted to make sure the EMPOWER provided as much as an in-person training BUT with the added benefits of having lifetime access to the resources and access them in your own time.

Birthing the Mother is delivered as a combination of live (or live online) yoga teacher training and guest expert sessions; live mentoring sessions with myself and my Senior YogaBellies Teachers and daily interaction in our online forum with the YB team and your peers. Every week of training you will be engaged in a combination of these training sessions with home study too. We’re constantly interacting with you to make sure you’re on track throughout the training and if you can’t make a session you can access it later in your own time.


In addition to this, you have access to complete handbooks for each module; a full YogaBellies Asana Manual; adaptions for the female life stage and conditions and more. You’ll also be provided with pre-written YogaBellies class plans if you chose to become a licensed teacher (optional).


We provide pre-recorded live YogaBellies class videos for your review and learning; lecture and asana break down videos, all of which you have lifetime access to and can watch at a time to suit. You also get downloadable handbooks, Asana ‘Cheat Sheets’, slide shows, audio learning and more.


For the 50-Hour YTT qualification, you must complete the online quiz to gain your certification. If you are just completing the training for personal reasons, there is no requirement to do this. If you wish to gain the 300-Hour Qualification, there are various other criteria that need to be met also.

You will receive a downloadable certificate from YogaBellies on completion of your mini-course and these can also be counted as credits towards with 300-Hour EMPOWER YTT within 3 years.

No time like the present, so hurry up and sign-up for YogaBellies Birthing the Mother
