You will be living at the beautiful Cortijo del Mercado Retreat Centre, an organic farm that rolls out next to stunning mountain views.

Elemental Yoga Therapy Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training in Spain Program


Upon completion of this pregnancy yoga teacher training, students will receive pregnancy yoga international certificate affiliated with Yoga Alliance. Registration with Yoga Alliance provides a globally recognized credential.

This is a new opportunity from The Elemental Yoga School, the world’s leading Holistic Yoga Therapy professional training program in 5 Element Medicine. It is a one of a kind live-in training, which approaches the experience of pregnancy as an energy rhythm which spans a 10-moon cycle. It offers a way to evoke the 5 Elements in yoga practices and pregnancy rituals, which deliver a time honored and timely re-connection to the power of the feminine wisdom.

Aligning for better health, through the energy of the moons' rhythm, you can learn how to connect to the natural forces of creation, that you as women carry. You will learn how to create yoga that balances the effects of the trimester changes and supports the psychological waves which go with the hormonal and environmental challenges that pregnancy brings to women’s lives.

From fertility practices, to Pregnancy yoga and rituals which bind you and your partner to the cycles of life, to the wonder of birth and early stages of life on earth, this experience is set to enrich the experiences for mothers, both young and new or with families at all ages, to empower yoga teachers, yoga therapists, and partners to support the healthy and spiritually vital passage of your next generations here on earth.

Yoga can create a deeply trusting bond with the forces of nature, and when it is offered with respect to the broad cultural and personal approaches to sustaining healthy life, it is a joy to share. The 10-moon temple yoga rituals are non-secular and all-embracing yoga practices, which through their diversity and simplicity are offered as a service to humanity in the highest respect for the women of our time.

As a yoga teacher, you will learn how to create a safe and nurturing environment for pregnant women to come and connect to themselves, and their babies. You will be able to share philosophies and practices that greatly support the holistic and healthy approach to childbirth.

Wherever people have a natural shift in life’s direction, they have the support of the 5 Elements to soften and deepen the ride. This training will show you how to use the qualities of the Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Spirit to enrich and encourage the lives of pregnant woman, to trust the nature of childbearing, to ease the often-challenging needs that they encounter from the western system of medicine. It is the ideal harmonic to the serious side of bearing life, and an important support through this indescribable passage of life.
