What our graduates say!

"I was initially hesitant about whether an online Toddler Yoga Teacher Training course would suit me. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the online course. Amy incorporated lots of videos which gave the feeling of being in the classroom with her anyway. Her enthusiasm for teaching this age group is infectious. The online site was well organised and simple to follow even for a technophobe like myself. Amy was always on hand for one to one support on Zoom chat and the group chats were very helpful too. Doing the online course enabled me to complete the course in my own time and at my own pace which suited me very well with work and family commitments. Amy gave encouraging and detailed feedback on my assignments. I would highly recommend Toddler Yoga Teacher Training with Amy Yoga."
