Birthlight perinatal yoga now accreditated with Yoga Alliance UK

We are really pleased to announce that the Birthlight Perinatal Yoga Diploma course combined with the Birthlight Postnatal Yoga course has been accredited with the Yoga Alliance UK.  The combination of the Perinatal Yoga Diploma course and the Postnatal Yoga course provide the 8 days training requirement from Yoga Alliance UK for accreditation.


Birthlight has been a pioneer course provider in Yoga for Pregnancy and Birth since the 1990s. We provide internationally acclaimed yoga teacher training courses that holistically cover the period from conception, through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

Our training school has met the stringent requirements set by Yoga Alliance UK, demonstrating that our courses are of the highest standard and that our Perinatal Yoga Diploma graduates, who have also completed the Postnatal Yoga course, may use the title 'Registered Yoga Teacher' RYT as a sign of quality training.

Three of our tutors, Françoise Freedman, Sally Lomas and Kirsteen Ruffell are already registered with Yoga Alliance UK as senior teachers.

This accreditation applies to birthlght perinatal yoga students going forward. After qualification Yoga Alliance UK will contact the teacher to see if they wish to use the title 'Registered Yoga Teacher' RYT. Each student will have to register voluntarily and independently from Birthlight directly with Yoga Alliance UK.

The Birthlight Perinatal Yoga Diploma has already been approved for teachers’ registration with CNHC (Complementary and Natural Health Council). Diploma holders can register through Birthlight.

Birthlight Perinatal Yoga Diploma (Part 2) has also been recognised by the  UK regulator for Antenatal Educators (FEDANT - Federation of Antenatal Educators). Holders can apply to be listed on their National Register.
