What do graduates think about the training? 

The teacher training with Utah Prenatal Yoga was above and beyond what I expected. The training was a good balance between hands on teaching/learning and classroom (type) learning. It was an artfully constructed training into the world of yoga and motherhood for anyone, mother or not. I would definitely recommend this training to anyone.
— Ashley Detrick RYT-200, RPYT
I absolutely loved the prenatal yoga teacher training!! I am a practicing midwife here in Utah and I wanted some more information on how yoga could specifically be helpful for my pregnant mama clients. I learned much more than I was expecting and feel so much more confidence in truly helping these women have a stronger, healthier and more joyful pregnancy, birth and recovery!! I especially love how Alicia helped us to bring the focus on to WHY we practice the way that we do, what is best practice and how to incorporate heart language and theming into our unique teaching styles!
— Hannah Dunford, LDEM, CPM
I would 100% recommend the Utah Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. I’ve been teaching yoga for 10+ years and walked away with so much understanding and insight into the world of prenatal yoga. Practicing yoga is invaluable during pregnancy and I feel so lucky to be able to share what I have learned with my yoga students!

I had the fundamental yoga teaching materials from my initial 200 hour Teacher Training and had been teaching for three years when I signed up for the Utah Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. I had built confidence and experience through my teaching, however the training gave me the tools to improve my teaching 150%. Alicia is a phenomenal teacher who is highly educated in the skills and techniques of teaching, specifically with the prenatal students, which she passes on to future teachers in her training with grace and eloquence. The training reinforces the fundamentals taught in a 200 Teacher Training, as well as equips you with building blocks to further grow your teaching and your business as a teacher. I now feel confident and comfortable teaching my prenatal mamas with classes themed and designed specifically for the prenatal body. If you have an interest in becoming educated in prenatal specific teaching as well as furthering your knowledge, skills and education as a Yoga Teacher, you will want to take this training.
