6. CAN I TAKE THE COURSE IF I’VE NEVER TAKEN KUNDALINI YOGA BEFORE?

7. WILL I BE CERTIFIED TO TEACH KHALSA WAY PRENATAL YOGA BY THE END OF THE COURSE?
You will be well on your way, however the following certification requirements must be met before you are fully certified and prepared to teach:
Attend an additional 10 prenatal yoga classes (5 Khalsa Way and 5 other schools of prenatal yoga classes). If there are not any Khalsa Way certified teachers in your area, you may use Gurmukh’s Pregnancy Yoga DVD’s and Sarah Kamrath’s recorded class.
Creation of 3 sample pregnancy yoga classes, with postures and a meditation included in each class outline.
A 40-day meditation that will be assigned at the end of the course.
The Khalsa Way Prenatal Teacher Training course fulfills Yoga Alliance's 85-hour national standard for a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT®). In order to receive a Yoga Alliance accreditation you must also have 30 hours of teaching experience in prenatal yoga after completing the Khalsa Way Prenatal Teacher Training course, and complete a 200-hour training program with a Registered Yoga School (RYS).
8. I’M PREGNANT. IT IS STILL OKAY FOR ME TO ATTEND THE TRAINING?
Yes. Absolutely. There is no better time. Come connect with your baby, your sisters and yourself.
9. I HAVE SMALL CHILDREN…MAY THEY COME WITH ME?
This is an intense week. We do ask that you come alone or bring someone who will be able to care for your child during the hours when we will be meeting.
