Ready to start teaching

With this course, I feel like I have all the background that I would need to teach prenatal yoga. It gives a lot of background information, and very valuable information on how to get into poses and out of them. I also appreciate the variations given, and alternatives for poses.

I am a yoga teacher and also currently pregnant and found this course to be so but so helpful. I am so grateful for Lucia who has taken the time to make such an elaborative, informative, and well-organized course. I will definitely be following her and all her courses. Thanks Lucia!

Best gift to give yourself during pregnancy

As a "feminine" yoga teacher and a pregnant woman, it was an amazing process for me, personally and professionally. Lucia is great, very pleasant, The explanations were very detailed, the manual is excellently written, the videos and photos as well. She was also available for any question. highly recommended. I continue with excitement to the postnatal course and mama&baby 🙂

Excellent Course

This has been a very interesting journey as I'm already a Yoga Teacher and one of my private client wanted me to guide her on the mat during her pregnancy. I'm a regular practitioner but I have never been a mum so this was an amazing deep dive into discovering so much more about women's body and mind during this particular time. It gave me the right confidence to be able to continue teaching her!

Nice Course Structure

I Enjoyed this Course and as a student and also as a teacher. Further, I am happy to revisit this course content as many times as required. And I am ready to help other moms. It is much appreciated if I receive a Certificate as a hard copy also. Thank you Lucia for your kind and supportive lessons in the videos.

Comprehensive and inspiring

As a yoga teacher who started the course 4 months' pregnant, I loved this course both as a student of yoga and a future prenatal teacher. It was well organised and presented, engaging and inspiring - covering a lot beyond the asanas. I really appreciated Lucia's gentle and supportive approach and the reminders about the philosophy of Hatha yoga. And Lucia was always available to answer questions!

Very comprehensive!

Loved the course! But as with many things, pros and cons(mostly pros tho) The good things - Lucia is FANTASTIC, very slow, thorough and gives the important info. Everything required is presented. Cons - There is no proper controlling. We are not asked to show or present anything, I think if we have to teach outside, that is important. Also, a printed certificate would be VERY MUCH appreciated.

Tijdens een eerdere yoga-opleiding zwangerschapsyoga gehad, maar nooit zo uitgebreid als deze TT. Veel tips & trics waar je echt iets aan hebt. Vol vertrouwen ga ik nu aan de slag als docente zwangerschapsyoga!
