A fabulous course to prepare for teaching prenatal yoga to others and for caring for myself

I would highly recommend this course! It is a very well structured course and Lucia is an AMAZING teacher 🙂 The manual, the exercises and the printable material is very helpful to give to clients as well. I have already taught 2 prenatal yoga sessions and my clients really enjoyed it! I am excited to continue conducting prenatal yoga on my clients and use it for my self care when I am pregnant.

Thank you Lucia

I would definitely recommend this course, I did it while I was experiencing my first pregnancy and it helped me so much to understand better my feelings, my body and to know what I was able to do and what I should avoid. It was so informative, Lucia takes the time to break down the poses but also to explain how pregnancy time works. Thank you so much for this amazing journey with you !!!

Great Yoga Prenatal Journey

I learned so much from Lucia, she is a very professional and calm teacher. The course was very informative, I think with all the stuff you need to know to start to teach prenatal yoga. I gave only one star less because I would have liked to have obligatory assignments with corrections (f.e. videos). And because of technical things I´ve missed, like to reproduce the videos faster.

A valuable course

I think it’s a valuable course with a lot of information that's clearly explained. The course has a lot of extra's. Ofcourse there're all the different asanas but there are also some small tips about ayurveda. The visualisations are very strong, I really enjoyed those! The way Lucia perform is an inspiration for me. I really like the peace that she radiate through body language and tone of voice.

Great course for yoga teachers and curious mum to be!

I started this course to expand my knowledge as a yoga teacher but also because I am pregnant. I found in Lucia a really calm and prepared teacher,a person able to share the love for her job.The course is really complete and full of " hands on" advices.I actually thought that was much better that some courses taught in yoga studios.A useful course for mum to be that wants to expand their horizon.

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.

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 🙂
