In Person Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Immersion NSW November 2023

About this course

Join Bliss Baby Yoga Owner, Lead Teacher & Doula Nadine O’Mara for this 3 day in person Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Immersion in beautiful Bellingen NSW Australia from the 10-12th November 2023. This course will equip yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainees, and women’s health professionals with the skills and knowledge to safely and confidently teach yoga to women during all stages of pregnancy.

Consider this training a retreat while gifting yourself with knowledge. Set in a private space amongst the trees with the opportunity to swim in the salt water pool on breaks accompanied by wonderful meals, this training is not only an opportunity to educate yourself but also a retreat from the rigours of day to day life.

And if you are the someone who needs to be in the room with others face to face for your training, then this is for you!

Nourishing lunches are included for three days, you might even be inclined to pick some herbs from the garden to accompany your meals.

You will gain so much on so many levels. Nadine shares the knowledge of her 15 years supporting birth as a Prenatal Yoga Teacher, birth educator and doula so what you will learn goes so much further than just the curriculum and manual (which is already comprehensive).

You may be a midwife or doula who needs some inspiration and some time with others who are passionate about birth in a supportive space, this immersion isn’t only for those who want to learn to teach Prenatal Yoga.

As a bonus this course also includes 12 months access FREE to our Bliss Baby Yoga Online Mentoring Program for Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teachers worth $120 that will give you the support you need as you embark as a Prenatal Yoga Teacher.

The Bellingen Shire is a rare and special place, host to a plethora of creativity, with an engaging culture nestled amongst some of the world’s most majestic and precious natural environment.

The town of Bellingen has a vibrant spirit and soulful character and has recently been touted by the SMH as a ‘foodie mecca‘. Come for a couple more days to allow yourself time to explore this beautiful region on either side of your course!

The beautiful Bellingen river is the soul of this area with the township nestled on it’s bank. The very special Promised Land lies just west of town while a trip up Waterfall Way to Dorrigo is not to be missed. Untouched beaches lie only 15 minutes the other way, the Urunga boardwalk as well, and there is also the village of Sawtell with an art house cinema and restaurants 25 minutes away.

The location of the studio for this training is in Fernmount, 8 minutes east of Bellingen between the town and the beach. Surrounded by bird song and trees with a large saltwater pool you will love the opportunity to escape life and nourish yourself in this restful space.

Who is this course for

This immersion is for anyone who loves birth and needs some nourishment!

You may be a yoga teacher who would like to train as a Prenatal Yoga Teacher with the intention to offer your own Prenatal Yoga classes.

However you might be a birth worker/keeper who would like to deepen their knowledge of how to support birth from a yogic perspective both prenatally and in the birthing room. You might also support clients during pregnancy as an alternative therapist or doula and want to know more about supporting them from a yogic perspective. Or perhaps you did an online training and now you’d like to dive in and explore that knowledge within a face to face course.

You may also already be a Prenatal Yoga Teacher who just needs a long weekend of nourishment, connection with other like minded individuals and further inspiration for your teaching.

What past course participants say
``Nadine is clearly passionate about women’s health. You can tell has many years of practise and teaching under her belt as she was professional but so relatable. I look up to her and I love her style - it was an absolute pleasure to be in the session with her and guided by her through the practise``- Simone
I loved the live experience. As a previous graduate of the online Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, the in-person training helped me integrate the learning (plus lots of swims!) It was a well thought out and delivered course by Nadine and a good refresher at the perfect time for me. The venue in Bellingen was gorgeous and I was thankful for the food we were cooked.- Chaitanya
I have learnt so much and really enjoyed the `{`long`}` weekend. The postures and modifications were great and I know I can use some of these not only for my prenatal yoga classes but for my gentle yoga classes too.<br /> There was a great balance between theory and practical and Nadine's delivery was 10 out of 10.<br /> I would absolutely recommend this to other teachers and women's health practitioners. I'm an acupuncturist specialising in women's health and found it really helped deepen my knowledge.<br /> The venue in Fernmount, Bellingen is the ideal environment for learning.- Karen
I really enjoyed in person learning, an open space for questions and discussions around supporting women in pregnancy. I also really enjoyed the grouping of postures and practice teaching.<br /> The practice was my favourite, to embody the yoga. I would particularly recommend this training to others for the support in teaching challenges, contra-indicated poses and use of props. The opportunity to rest and connect with others was also wonderful.- Courtney

'This course is so wholistic - I love how it truly focuses on the body and spirit of a new mama, and her growing/new babe. It’s not just asana. The course addresses the WHOLE mama, and I think that is invaluable. It’s exactly what I was looking for when researching online courses. It would’ve made more sense for me to do a course in the USA but I was really drawn to this one for the spiritual and emotional elements.' Amber (USA), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'I loved that I could do this course at my own pace. I’m 27 weeks pregnant and loved doing this course whilst pregnant! This has reignited my desire to teach, in a different way than I used to - softer and more feminine.' Casey (QLD, AUS), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'The course was exactly what I needed. I liked the emphasis on safety and the therapeutic recommendations for the various pregnancy related ailments. Ana’s style of teaching offers a practical approach, whilst being centred, empathetic and nurturing. The flexibility of being able to do the course in my own time was very much appreciated. I have a busy teaching schedule and I’m a mum so it was good to be able to take the time I needed to complete the course properly. I really liked the structure of the course, very clear and easy to follow.' Julia (UK), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga TT graduate
'I am loving this online fertility course that you (Rosie and Ana) have created. It is brilliant and so professional. It will be wonderfully supportive for me as I care for my clients. Thank you for the time and effort that must have gone into it.' Amanda (SA, AUS), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training graduate
'The Bliss Baby Yoga Level 2 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is a woven together in a synergistic balance of theory and practical. The deeply feminine approach is clearly offered from a place of deep knowing as each of the facilitators draw on their wisdom and knowledge, sharing this information in an easily relatable and digestible way. Not only aesthetically pleasing, the platform is easy and seamless to navigate. It truly is fabulous! The final video call mentoring session phenomenal. Star held space so beautifully and offered supportive guidance which really landed in my bones. I loved this connection as the culmination of our studies, thank you. I feel really spoilt!' Kirstie (VIC, AUS), Online L1 & L2 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'This course was packed full of valuable information to help support a pregnant mom through her entire pregnancy and into the first several months of motherhood. It gave me an abundance of tangible material that is available to refer back to. I am completely satisfied with the contents of this course, which is accessible to anyone, anywhere, interested in developing their skills for prenatal and postnatal yoga. I have already recommended it to other teachers at our studio.' Mary (USA), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'I benefited from the Bliss Baby Yoga Online L1 Restorative Yoga TT course on both a personal and professional level. Personally, it worked as an anchor, it helped me through difficult times and I keep coming back to it every week to cultivate it's grounding effect. Professionally, I fell in love with the teaching of Restorative Yoga, it's my favorite Yoga style to teach, and I am very passionate about it and how I want to give it to my students. With the whole course and all the references you gave I feel comfortable about applying the knowledge and techniques I learned.' Anna (France), Online L1 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'Both of the courses I have completed with Bliss Bay Yoga were so well done. It has been a truly invaluable learning experience for me. I must say that I have learnt more during your online course then during my residential 200h teacher training - I honestly couldn't expect that a remote training would be so helpful and constructive. Everything was perfect; the atmosphere, all of the knowledge. The course was very informative, useful and inspiring. I engaged in this course during a lockdown and with my newborn at home, and I couldn't be happier. The Baby Bliss Yoga team is very professional and thanks to this course I feel confident to start my teaching career.' Marica (Italy), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'Thank you so much for an amazing online course. I was so blown away by all the beautiful content and felt like I received such a deep level of learning from it. I have been craving more knowledge and depth into Yoga for Fertility and you well and truly delivered. I ran a small workshop from my home on Sunday to put what i had learnt to practice. It was an intimate group of 3 women and it was just so beautiful! Thank you again. I'm so so grateful!' Jenny (NSW, AUS), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility TT graduate
'I found your Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training course to be tremendously worthwhile and very enjoyable. The course was very practical and accessible. I was able to apply what I was learning right away since everything was laid out very clearly. I have a personal journey with infertility so the material was both personally and professionally valuable to me. Since it is a subject so close to me I was really able to feel the benefits of the various sequences.' Prairie (New Zealand), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training graduate
