If your question isn’t answered here, just schedule your free Dreams and Visions Call with me by clicking here.

I love connecting with yogis who are drawn to learn more about the challenges and opportunities around birth, and how just understanding this time can help us embody the power, wisdom, adn nurturing energy of the divine feminine.

We can set up a quick call or Skype to get your questions answered about the program, and figure out if we’re a good fit.

Thank you and hope to connect with you soon!

What is the process to get Ma Yoga/ Yoga Alliance Certification?

The Ma Yoga Prenatal Teacher Training Certification Program is a Yoga Alliance Registered Prenatal Yoga School.  This means that Yoga Alliance has approved the Ma Yoga® curriculum for the 85 hour training.  Here are the modules of the program:

  • Prenatal 1: The Yoga of Pregnancy and Postpartum
  • Prenatal 2: The Yoga of Healing for Women in their Childbearing Years
  • MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda for Moms and Moms-to-Be
  • One-on-One Mentorship – a two-month program where you work with a senior Certified Ma Yoga Teacher Trainer to integrate what you’ve learned; after completion of Prenatal 1 and 2
  • Labor education – your choice: take a doula training in your area, or join us for The Yoga of Birth, a live online 6-session course
  • Class write-ups – Local or online Ma Yoga classes at www.MaYogaLiving.com.

When you’ve completed all of the above, you will submit a Certification Application with all of your homework. You will get a link to schedule a Certification Call with Jessica, and go over the career options opening up for you.

You will have the opportunity to get support to start Ma Yoga class in your own neighborhood; to mentor other trainees; and to train as a Ma Yoga® Teacher Trainer.

You will also receive a certificate to submit to Yoga Alliance for your RPYT.

As always, please email jessica@mayoga.com with any questions and we look forward to guiding and inspiring you on your teaching path!

What is the cost of everything?

We’ve set up the Ma Yoga Prenatal Certification Program to work with people’s stressed lives and wallets.

The total for the Whole Program – $1297 – saves $350 off the individual cost of the trainings.

This includes:
Prenatal 1: The Yoga of Pregnancy & Postpartum Weekend
Prenatal 2: The Yoga of Healing for Women in their Childbearing Years
MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda for Moms and Moms-to-Be

Your labor education is separate, since some people will want to do a doula training (or have), and others will want to join us for The Yoga of Birth, our online labor education course for yoga teachers. The cost of The Yoga of Birth is $347. You can get 10% off by becoming a Ma Yoga Living Member (FREE for 2 weeks and then $18/month after that. As a member, you’ll access Ma Yoga Anytime, our extensive prenatal yoga library, free live online Align & Flow yoga with Jessica, and tons of resources for teaching.

If you purchase the full Ma Yoga/Yoga Alliance RPYT Certification Program, you receive 6 MONTHS FREE Ma Yoga Living Membership.

All participants receive a free, 30-minute Dreams and Visions call with Jessica, to help you create a plan that works for your life. Please reach out to schedule a call – I look forward to connecting with you!

Is there a payment plan?

There is a payment plan, of sorts.

Instead of paying for the three main trainings up front – Prenatal 1, Prenatal 2, and MAyurveda – you can pay as you go.

Like all payment plans, this is a big more expensive but if you don’t have a lot of cash on hand, it’s still incredibly affordable compared to other programs. Keep checking our www.MaYogaLiving.com/Events page to make sure you get your Early Bird Discount Code!

Can I get a refund?

We do not offer refunds. Please purchase carefully.

Once you purchase your first training, you have up to three years to use it. You can also use any money paid as a credit toward any other Ma Yoga Living program.

Thank you for understanding.

Can I take this even if I don’t want to teach prenatal yoga?

The trainings are designed for anyone – yogis and regular yoga teachers, pregnant women, doulas, someone who wants to be a mom someday or wants to know how to support moms-to-be throughout their journey to motherhood and beyond.

If you simply want to know more about any of the training topics, whether it’s to be able to guide your students, your clients, or yourself, you are welcome to join us!

What if I don’t have my 200-hour regular teacher training?

You will have principles that will serve you throughout, whether you decide just to teach friends, or you go on to take your 200-hour or 500-hour.

However, you cannot be a Certified Ma Yoga teacher or a Certified Yoga Alliance Prenatal teacher without a 200-hour teacher training.

You will still be listed on the Ma Yoga website, you can still teach if you choose to, and you can say that you “completed the Ma Yoga Certification Program”.

How do I get my Yoga Alliance Certification?

Once you have completed all of the different modules, you’ll submit the Ma Yoga Certification Application with your homework attached to jessica@MaYoga.com. At that point, you’ll schedule a Certification Call to talk about all the career options opening up for you, and then you will receive your certificate to submit to Yoga Alliance for certification.

Please see www.YogaAlliance.org for requirements for RYPT, in addition to an 85-hour program (at this time they require 30 hours of prenatal teaching).

How do I start a Ma Yoga class?

Once certified – or even after you’ve completed The Yoga of Pregnancy & Postpartum if you feel ready – reach out to me at Jessica@MaYoga.com.

I’ll help you identify a good location, set up a revenue share, and provide business and marketing coaching as well as customer service, online presence and booking and buying for your students. Ma Yoga classes use a 60/20/20 split: the teacher gets the bulk of the revenue, which is usually more than double what yoga studios can give because of their overhead. Locations and Ma Yoga administration and marketing each get 20%.
