with Jessica Jennings, MS, ERYT, RYPT, Certified Anusara Instructor
Founder, Ma Yoga® for Pregnancy, Motherhood & Beyond
If you’re a bit nervous when a pregnant woman walks into your class – OR you feel drawn to teach yoga to moms and moms-to-be – OR you just want to know more about how yoga can help us have an empowering “Ma” journey – please join me for this alignment-based prenatal teacher training!
May be taken toward 300-hour certification credit, or in partial fullfilment of Ma Yoga®/Yoga Alliance RPYT Certification.
I began teaching prenatal yoga in 2001, after my very first teacher training, a 3-month Anusara training.
I became a Certified Anusara Instructor in 2006, and began training teachers using birth as a way to understand the Universal Principles of Alignment on a deeper level – especially in the context of the specific challenges and opportunities women face.
In 2012 I put together a comprehensive curriculum including prenatal, postpartum, Ayurveda for women and therapeutics using women’s changing bodies and lives as our guide.
My intention is that you:
- Feel confident adjusting yoga poses and sequences for pregnancy and postpartum
- Gain all the tools you’ll need to teach prenatal poses, sequences and themes
- Explore the work of labor, and how you can best prepare our mamas
- Understand the different ways you can add in prenatal to your weekly offerings, and pro’s and con’s of each
- Enjoy being part of a supportive, evolutionary, global community of women who all share the desire to guide, support and inspire mamas
You may take this training self-paced or live, or both. Your registration gives you evergreen access to the materials.

Read what participates say about The Yoga of Pregnancy Teacher Training (RPYT):
The Yoga of Pregnancy has been so helpful for me! Because I just finished an Anusara-based 200 hr yoga teacher training this past November, jumping into the 5 Sacred Steps with you has felt so satisfying. I feel like I was able to take the framework I had and then apply your Ma Yoga lens and everything started to fall into place…
Also, the way you have interpreted Sacred Step 4 has already helped me to alleviate pain – I previously had been tucking my tailbone and undoing everything I had set and your guidance of elongating and extending the back body has been really cool.
– Elizabeth S.
The training is incredibly well structured, with a wealth of tools and wisdom to be shared. Plus Jessica will answer all of your questions and then some. I took a hiatus from teaching before this training and was hoping to feel empowered to teach again. After 6 sessions with Jessica I am already back to it with ease and excitement.
This prenatal training helped me connect more deeply with my femininity and my practice. The information was presented in a clear, soft and useful way, and it inspired me to dive deeper not only into Pregnancy yoga but into myself, my body, my practice and my teaching.
Thank you Jessica for sharing your wisdom and energy and for opening new doors for women to explore their pregnancy in a safe and creative way!
– Ann-Christin, Certified Anusara Yoga Instructor
This training felt like it went above and beyond. There is way more to prenatal yoga than just the do’s and don’ts. Jessica is an amazing instructor that has put a lot of thought and care into the program. I’m confident that I’ll be a wonderful prenatal instructor upon completion of the program.
I must say I am loving the course with you. You are an amazing teacher and mentor and I am so grateful you were brought in my life.
I thought I would just learn about pregnancy yoga, but instead I have deepened my own practice and reignited my love of yoga.
– Joanne H.
I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I am enjoying your training. It is quite different than what I’m used to (aside from the prenatal aspect). I love learning these sacred steps and how they apply to EVERY practice and EVERY “body.” It’s wild how I’ve reinvented a few teaching language areas to help serve my students. Light bulbs are going off, and the connection is beautiful.
– Deborah A.
There are few other times in my life when I have felt so alive and inspired as I did during this training. The process of pregnancy, labor, and delivery is so powerful, it leaves me completely and utterly humbled. I have known for a long time that yoga is my path, but it wasn’t until this prenatal training that I realized that prenatal yoga is my path within my path 😉
She reached out to every one of us with compassion and warmth, and we learned so much. There is something uniquely strong, wise, and supportive about a group of women who come together to learn about pregnancy and mothering.
We were in excellent hands with her!
