Prenatal Postnatal Yoga and Garbhasanskar Teacher Training course is specially designed for yoga teachers, doctors, gynaecologists, obstetricians, nutritionists, physiotherapists, and trainers. While prenatal yoga teacher training is common, there seems to be an inadvertent lack of comprehensive understanding of yoga before, during, and after childbirth among health professionals. Additionally, yoga teachers are not familiar with pregnancy physiology and medical aspects. These are some of the reasons why people are hesitant to recommend yoga during pregnancy or teach prenatal yoga.

I am very grateful and thank AYG Academy by Dr NutanThe precious knowledge given to us , in detail regarding Human Physiology, mind, body, and emotions working together. The holistic approach that is involved in the Creation and Cultivation of life in every birth ,has opened my eyes to many facts, and truths that can be linked to our Indian culture and explained them with the scientific knowledge that I have wanted and needed to prepare the body for the beautiful cycle of giving birth and bringing new life. The wellness information about Ayurveda has given me a chance not only to understand the biology in myself but also to get clarity from the people around me. I especially now understand the importance of Yoga in one's life, the importance it has, to balance and enhance energy, and purify the body allowing me to be calmer and get a better nights sleep.

I recently completed a two-month Garbha Sanskar prenatal program with Dr. Nutan and I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. From the beginning, Dr. Nutan created a warm and supportive environment that made me feel comfortable and valued. The program itself was comprehensive and well-structured, covering a range of practices and techniques that were incredibly beneficial for my prenatal journey. Dr. Nutan is exceptionally knowledgeable and always took the time to address any questions or concerns I had. Their passion for Garbha Sanskar and genuine care for their students shine through in every session. Overall, I highly recommend this program to any expectant mother looking for a holistic approach to prenatal care. Thank you, Dr. Nutan, for making this experience so enriching and memorable.

The main difference is that the self-paced course allows you to learn at your own pace within six months of course access to all recordings, while the live Zoom class version has a duration of one month and offers the opportunity to learn directly with faculty and other students. The live version includes a 7-day recording access after the course’s end date.

In contrast, the zoom live course involves real-time instruction and interaction with the trainer and other participants, which requires more resources and preparation. As a result, the fees for the zoom live course are typically higher to account for the additional costs associated with delivering the course in a live format.
