Pregnant Woman Working Out

Pre and Postnatal Barre Instructor Training

Modifications for Pre and Postnatal Clients


Pre and Postnatal Barre Instructor Training Programme

As our regular clients know, we actively welcome all pregnant clients to join our regular classes. They enjoy the challenge of training their bodies with non-pregnant clients and there’s no valid reason for us to put them into ‘quarantine’.

The benefits of exercise during pregnancy are well reported, but not every fitness professional or studio has the knowledge, experience or confidence to know what to modify and how far to push you to get (or stay) strong and fit for (and after) the birth.

We do. And we have been successfully coaching pregnant clients for years.

The Barre Collective Workout is safe, effective and strongly advised for the vast majority of pregnancies. And we’re on a mission to share the knowledge so that exercise during pregnancy can be about much more than gentle walks and yoga.

The course has been created by our Founder Vicki Anstey and leading Canadian Obstetrician Karen Nordahl.


Ideally, you will have completed the Barreworks or The Barre Collective Foundation Instructor Training course, or another accredited barre training course. Please check your insurance policy beforehand to ensure you will be covered to teach pregnant populations. Most will cover you for mixed groups where the focus is not singularly pre/post-natal.

Maternity Yoga Private Class


The cost of the online, self-study Pre and Postnatal Barre Instructor Training course is £350.

The cost includes an optional 1-hour, 1-2-1 tutorial with Vicki Anstey to address any questions you may have and go through content you may need support with.
