    I have worked with Nicole and she is fantastic! Great article!

Erlinda YogaThis month we caught up with the wonderfully vivacious Erlinda Lopez who graduated from the Bliss Baby Yoga Prenatal and Postnatal yoga teacher training in 2012.  

Erlinda Lopez is a true yoga child of the 1970’s, discovering a love for it in her late teenage years.  Growing up in Chile at the time, however, it was perceived to be quite an alternative path, reserved for “weird people”.  Erlinda didn’t let the critics stop her and continued her classes and was soon asked to teach.

Rosie Matheson Yoga for FertilityThis month Bliss Baby Yoga Director and Founder Ana Davis discusses the role of yoga and meditation practices in supporting and enhancing fertility for women who are preparing or trying to conceive. She spoke with Bliss Baby Yoga Fertility and Conscious Conception specialist, Rosie Matheson, who has been working with women to support their fertility for six years and will soon be facilitating a Bliss Baby Yoga Fertility Yoga Teacher Training in Byron Bay.

A woman’s hormonal system is her “stress-sensitive” system [1]. Stress can adversely affect the delicate balance of hormones necessary for optimal health and fertility.  A woman who is trying to conceive should therefore try to minimise the levels of stress in her life as much as possible, in order to give her body the best chance. However, the irony is infertility causes more stress! According to a famous study by Dr Alice Domar from the Harvard Medical School, the anxiety and depression levels of a woman suffering infertility is on par with someone diagnosed with a terminal disease [2]. This can set off a vicious cycle: the more stressed we become the more this may affect our ability to get pregnant, and then we become even more stressed! 


Jennifer AllenThese days, Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga are bandied about as synonymous.  Senior Bliss Baby Yoga teacher, Jennifer Allen teaches both styles and helps clear up the confusion – they are in many ways two very different approaches to yoga.  Read on to understand how. 

As yoga continues to grow in popularity on a global level, it’s becoming clear that to enjoy a successful career as a yoga teacher amidst the diverse ‘shopping-mart’ of yoga styles now on offer, we need to be well-versed in not just one but at least several different styles of practice.  For me, it is reminiscent of my days as a professional dancer, when work opportunities would be limited unless you learnt to trade in your point shoes for tap shoes at any given moment!  Now, as a full-time yoga teacher, I have found that I encounter the very same scenario – I have needed to diversify my skills.  It’s not unusual for me to have to flow seamlessly from a 6pm dynamic, Vinyasa Flow class followed by a 7.30pm gentle, Restorative Yoga class.  As a result, when asked that ubiquitous question - “what style of yoga do you teach?” - my answer has quickly become “it depends on the day!”


Due to popular demand we are excited to announce that we will be holding a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Weekend intensive in Byron Bay, Friday 17th - Sunday 19th April.

Bliss Baby Yoga online study

Our online course in Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training has fast become a popular way for people to study the Bliss Baby Yoga teachings. The flexibility of studying at your own pace, from the convenience of your own home, has enabled trainees from all over the world and remote parts of Australia to specialise in prenatal and postnatal yoga. We’ve even had some busy mums from capital cities join this course because they can’t make it to our face-to-face trainings.
