WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY!
"Sign up today, you won't regret working with Amy! Her support, online videos, tutorials, and class recordings alongside her resources made this a very informative, interesting and varied course - she really knows her stuff! Her knowledge has not only made me feel comfortable with listening to my own body during pregnancy, but also with passing on my passion for yoga to women during a very exciting, but potentially vulnerable, moment in their lives. I would 100% recommend this course to anyone who is looking into training as a pregnancy teacher". Roz Schofield
"Amy's teaching is incredibly thorough, offering a variety of resources from the written handbook, recorded classes for observation, and plenty of recorded training material. Amy is immensely knowledgeable and passionate and she delivers her training in such a way that is accessible and full of joy and humour. Just loved it." Jennifer Best
"I absolutely loved the pregnancy with Amy. The online content was really extensive and easy to navigate and any question I had was answered with enthusiasm and in great detail. I've been teaching vinyasa yoga for a couple of years, but after falling pregnant myself earlier this year, I found that the course with Amy really helped me to confidently adapt my own practice and now I can't wait to start teaching all those mamas to be!" Hannah Rutland
