"Prenatal trainings aren't easy to come by and this is a convenient option that gives you a very professional understanding" Karen-Anne

"The format was perfect. I travel 1 hour in the train to work so I was able to listen to the audio lectures on the train and take notes on my computer.   Very good value for money. Perfect length. I was able to do it in my own time. I loved the online format. "  Michelle Lia

"Many thanks for an excellent, thought provoking and inspiring course - I really enjoyed completing it."  Angela 

"I was so impressed with the format and content of the course.  I would highly recommend this course to any yoga teacher wanting to learn about prenatal/postnatal yoga"  Michelle

 

"Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed session 1.  Wonderfully clear explanations that made sense of a lot of things I'd read or heard before but didn't know the reasons or the whole context.  You have certainly made this thorough and detailed material very accessible.  I also loved the deliberate setting of intention."  Alison

"I loved the course!  I have learnt so much.  I have been teaching prenatal yoga classes, and I have developed much more confidence in my teaching because I feel more knowledgeable.  I love the feeling that I am helping my students.  I loved the teaching style and the format was great; it was helpful having the course guide to follow as I listened to the lectures.  The information was fantastic....a great way to learn, good mix of theory and practice.  Ana is obviously so passionate about pre & postnatal yoga and it's hard not to catch that passion.  It was a real pleasure to learn from her."  Karen Buckland

"The materials were incredibly well thought out and professional without being 'slick'.  I have done other on-line courses and the audio-visual was neither audible or able to be seen!  Very impressed with the layout, quality and content of the on-line course materials." Linda White

"Thank you for providing this great course online...for this medium has been essential as I live in remote Alice Springs, NT.  The Teacher Training has given me confidence to go and start teaching in this area, where as before I felt so unsure and a little nervous.  I have come away from this course respecting the benefits of pregnancy yoga as a valuable therapy for the mother and baby and would recommend it to all pregnant women.  The course was fun, thorough and placed the safety of the mother and baby at a high priority.  I feel it is important for the yoga teacher to be qualified in this area and to see pre and postnatal yoga as a specialised area.  the course has changed my teaching direction...I love the pre and postnatal aspects to yoga.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge."  Joanne Gordon

"I have found all courses I've done so far with Bliss Baby beneficial.  I just wish you were in Melbourne permanently!  Having online courses is helpful for many of us.  I learnt a lot from this course that I have already put into practice and it has helped me immensely.  Thank you."  Emily Sullivan

"I really enjoyed the Bliss Baby teacher training online course because it was flexible, allowing me to do the work and practices at a convenient time....especially helpful for mothers with babies.  The directions on how to follow the course work were clear with the ability to contact someone if need be for help.  Knowing that I can contact someone if I have further questions down the line when I start teaching postnatal is very nice too.  I felt comfortable at all times and now prepared for my postnatal teaching"  Helen Santamaria Popescu

The structure of the course was well organised and I enjoyed that I could actually practice Ana's yoga classes via DVD or audio.  It was convenient to listen to on the way to work and to then practice some of the yoga with my pregnant yoga students.  As I studied, I found myself becoming more confident to teach the yoga to my students and I always referred back to my notes or Ana's books when I was not sure.  It is easy to carry all of this information in one I-pad :) " Junko Kofuji

"The course was very easy to follow. The audio files were great with the combination of practical time on the mat. All the other resources were concise and relevant. I followed the course outline and did the various reading and homework and found that everything flowed very well. The technology was very easy to use and accessible. I listened to the audio files on my computer and on an MP3 player and it was great to be able to switch between the two depending on where I was and what was going on."  Jaclyn Pariyar
