August 24 – 25, 2024

Saturday & Sunday from 8:00 am – 7:00 pm

There will be an hour long lunch break each day.  The hours are long but so worth it!

The 20 hours is fully approved for Yoga Alliance CEU’s but not the full 100-hr. training (RPYT).  You will receive a 20-hr. certificate of completion at the end.  We will consider doing another weekend using the same format to continue towards the full Prenatal Certification if there is enough interest.

The price will be $375.00 if paid in full one month prior to the training weekend and $400.00 if payment is made at the start of the training weekend.  You will receive printed material that will be covered in the tuition price.

“As a physical therapist, I knew that I needed to focus on improving my posture, overall endurance, and pelvic floor strength when I became pregnant. I began looking into prenatal yoga classes and was immediately drawn to Abbey’s impressive resume, especially her role as a doula and an anatomy and physiology teacher. It quickly became evident that Abbey has a firm grasp on how a woman’s body changes during pregnancy and how to best support each individual woman’s needs throughout that process. During each class, she addressed different ailments and obstacles that we might encounter throughout pregnancy, labor/delivery, and postpartum and provided solutions through her knowledge of yoga as well as her experience as a doula. Because of the prenatal yoga class, I ventured through my pregnancy and entered labor with far more confidence in my body and mental fortitude than I thought possible. I highly recommend her class to any pregnant woman, regardless of trimester or yoga experience, and I am already excited to return with baby #2!” ~Allyson Shelley, DPT

“Abbey Brewer has an incredible ability to connect and convey the material she is presenting.  I took her Prenatal Training as I knew of her reputation and she was above and beyond my expectations.  Not only was the information relevant for pregnancy but I use a great deal of her poses and wisdom with all classes.  Since we dealt with the pelvic floor and SI issues, I find this is useful to many students whether they are pregnant or not.  I felt very confident to teach a prenatal class after Abbey’s training as she prepared us for the different needs and expectations during each trimester.  It is apparent when you are with Abbey that she has worked with hundreds of pregnant women over the years and she has a wealth of knowledge and experience.  I would highly recommend Abbey and her Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training to anyone interested in deepening their knowledge in this area.” ~ Kim Saunders, E-RYT 500, RPYT, CPYT, LPC, Lift Founder

“I cannot imagine there is a more comprehensive and extensive prenatal yoga training than the one offered by instructor/teacher Abbey Brewer. All my clients to date have told me they have learned more from my prenatal yoga class than they did their doulas and to some extent their doctor. That is due only to the vast knowledge the instructors at Etowah Valley Yoga including but not limited to Abbey Brewer pass on to their students through this wonderfully educational and powerful training. If you are looking for a prenatal yoga training, there no need to look any further, this is it.”  ~ Rachel Smith Bahadir, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, RPYT, Istanbul, Turkey
