3 Day Pre & Post Natal, Children & Teens Teacher Training

Bali, more specifically Nusa Lembongan, is a true island paradise, a world away from the hassle and hectic pace of urban life. Main activities include surfing, diving and snorkelling with abundant marine life, healthy coral and tropical waters of the clearest, aqua blue you will find anywhere.

The Santosha Prenatal, Postnatal, Children’s and Teens’ Yoga Intensive is an inspiring course that will provide you with the skills and knowledge to share the benefits of yoga with new and expectant mothers, children and teens. The course is suitable for anyone interested in enriching their understanding of the applications of yoga in these areas, whether your goal is to practice as a specialist yoga teacher, apply the knowledge to your work in a field other than yoga, or to evolve your own practice and life experience. Santosha’s course modules are formulated to provide students with the knowledge, confidence and holistic understanding of appropriate asanas and practices for safely teaching pregnant women during and after pregnancy.

Prenatal Yoga classes provide an opportunity for expectant mothers to develop greater vitality and awareness of their blooming body that is home for two, as well as to deepen their relationship with their unborn baby. The course provides practitioners with the skills to empower mothers and enrich their experience during this transformational time in their lives.
The children and teen yoga modules offer a comprehensive experiential-based training that will give you the building blocks to specialize in teaching children’s or teens’ yoga as a career. During this intensive course, you’ll have the opportunity to role play as children in a children’s yoga class, to experience it from a child’s perspective. You’ll also learn how to plan and sequence classes for young children’s drifting attention spans, as well as how to adapt poses to different age groups of children.

The certification you will receive is accredited to provide registered teachers with 30 continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.

HOURS + TOPICS

This is fundamentally one of the most important and vital areas of yoga teaching, because teaching the youth will help to create a profound change in the world. Planting the seeds of peace as soon as possible will allow them to experience the benefits of yoga, share them and practice them throughout their lives. Teaching our teenagers yoga can provide them with beneficial lifelong tools to help them cope with daily stresses, navigate exams and deal gracefully with the increasing pressures placed upon them as they transition into adulthood. 

Gentle postures, breath work, vocal toning and meditation are taught to cultivate flexibility, calmness and confidence in preparation for labor and childbirth. Women are assisted to access greater relaxation, comfort and enjoyment. Calmness and flexibility ease the birthing process, thus reducing pain and increasing the joy of giving birth. With prenatal yoga, women prepare for as active, enjoyable and natural a birthing experience as possible. The course provides practitioners with the skills to empower mothers and enrich their experience during this influential time in their lives.

Certification

Upon completing this course, you will be equipped to practice safely and teach others in a range of diverse settings. This course offers continuing education with Yoga Alliance—the world’s most respected yoga certifying authority—and all Santosha graduates are offered support on their teaching journey.

Meet The Facilitators

 
Venue   The Village Nusa Lembongan

At the heart of The Village Nusa Lembongan is a community filled with passion and creativity – for surfing, yoga, diving, food, health and well-being… or simply living in an authentic heart-connected way. Yoga, music, retreats, meditation, art, SUP and SUP Yoga, wholesome food and living – all are celebrated and facilitated in this beautiful hub on the oceans edge.


Along with daily Yoga Classes and Yoga Teacher Trainings, the Yoga Shala is home to regular meditation and kirtan sessions, retreats and special workshops to empower you to tap into the happy, creative and fulfilled individual you were always meant to be.


The on-site cafe ensures not only your mind and heart will be nourished with enriching goodness – so will your belly! All needs are catered to with a selection of wholesome and delicious meals and snacks, all made with the most important ingredient of all – love.


Join for a month, a week…. or just for a juice! Santosha would love to connect with you and share time together on this beautiful island. Allow your heart to soar, your senses to shine and your soul to connect to the ocean and the magic of this small island community.


For those who want to make the most of their time on the island and enjoy the vibes in the cafe and communal yoga hub, on-site accommodation at Agung’s Bungalows is also available, making your commute to the yoga shala mere metres away. Perfect for those who want to soak up the most of the community vibes!


The Santosha team can also help with recommendations for those who wish to stay further afield, but are bamboozled by the choices on offer on the island. Be in touch with your preferences and budget, and they can advise from there so you find just the right choice to suit you.


The best way to reach Nusa Lembongan from Bali is by boat. There are several options according to budget and speed. Most of the scheduled fast boat services leave from Sanur Beach at the end of Jalan Hangtuah. The exact departure and arrival point on this beach depends on the tide. Expect to get wet in your travels and keep electronics safe from water damage. 


To reach Sanur, you will fly into (Ngurah Rai) Denpasar Airport in Bali. Sanur is around 45 minutes drive from the airport. D’Camel, the fast boat company, can arrange an airport pick up for you. Request with them at the time of booking.

Non Residential

Food

Great food is at the heart of any community, and the Village is no different! Luckily you are blessed with the on-site cafe – Ginger & Jamu. Run by chef (and Santosha graduate!) Jamie Chick, the café serves a selection of healthy, hearty meals, all created with the most important of ingredients – love!

At Ginger & Jamu, great care goes into creating the most most-watering meals possible using the freshest ingredients available. The chef is a yogi and expert in nutrition – he knows exactly what our busy yogis and surfers need to keep them healthy, happy and radiant during their time on the island.

The cafe leaves out the nasties like MSG – and leaves in the healthy benefits of fresh, local produce. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free eaters will love the care and attention lavished on creating meals to suit all dietary needs. People with allergies can request some extra care (please speak to Jamie to arrange)

If you want to try eating outside the resort, then you’re in luck. Bali is at the forefront of healthy eating. You’ll be astounded by the numerous options you’re given by the many restaurants and cafes. There are many great food options in the area and how much you spend will depend where you eat. Bali also has great cafes with amazing coffee to suit even the fussiest of caffeine fiends.

  Bali, Indonesia

Nusa Lembongan is a small island off the southeast coast of the main island of Bali. It is steadily becoming one of Bali’s most popular attractions as it is a paradise which is removed from the hassle and hectic pace of South Bali. A fine place to relax, sink your feet in the sand, and soak under the sun, Nusa Lembongan is a relaxing place for adventure.


The only way to reach Nusa Lembongan from Bali is through a helicopter or by boat. Most of the scheduled fast boat services leave from Sanur Beach at the end of Jalan Hangtuah. Other services run from Benoa Harbour, and there are local public boat services to and from Padang Bai and Kusamba in East Bali.
