  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    “Your program was extremely valuable to me.  It provided me with the tools necessary to safely guide pregnant students and also included an organized (highlight, organized) reference for the basics on anatomy that my original teacher training lacked.  I really liked how the charts provided gave a lot of related information. I will continue to reference your material, as I prefer the organized collection of your material to the scattered view I got from my original program.  I found your program gave me a solid foundation for safe practice and also the structured knowledge set for my own informed growth.  Thank you, and I look forward to growing my practice and skills through your other programs.”

    Francisca Reyes-Acosta, RYT 200

  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    I would certainly highly recommend your courses to other yoga instructors. The written information in the prenatal course was extensive and useful in all areas of yoga instruction. The information was well organized, well researched, and professionally written. I found the illustrations and the video to be helpful as well. After completing the course, I felt that I had taken a graduate level course in yoga. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience in such an effective way.

  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    Namaste! I have been teaching yoga for about four years now and it has transformed my life in more ways that I ever could have imagined. After becoming a mother, I felt called to share yoga with women during their journey into motherhood. Yoga played a big role in my pregnancies and helped me cultivate a deep breath, a beautiful mindset and an open body to carry me through. This is such a sacred and special time in a woman's life. Prenatal Yoga will enhance the pregnancy, labor and role of being a mother in so many ways. This program is excellent for first time teachers as well as seasoned. It was a nice refresher course on anatomy and really helpful. I am very excited to start sharing this style of yoga to my expecting students. Much Love and Happiness,

  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    The prenatal yoga course is extremely thorough, covering all aspects of a safe and nurturing yoga practice for both Mum and baby during pregnancy. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach prenatal yoga, or for yoga teachers who may want to expand their knowledge while ensuring the safety of any pregnant students in a regular class.
