Thank you so much for a fabulous course Lauren. I absolutely loved learning with you and really loved the flexibility (life as a new mum isn’t easy) but I truly looked forward to our live calls each week. I loved the flexibility of the course. I now feel empowered and confident with so much knowledge on how to help all the mummas out there. Thank you so much, you are a fantastic teacher and you have a beautifully calm style that makes it a pleasure to be in your presence. -Claire, 85-hour student, September 2021
Reviews from our school on Yoga Alliance:
Hi! I’m Lauren the creator of Island Prenatal Yoga School! I created these courses to help yoga teachers and yoga practitioners be able to enjoy and safely teach pre and postnatal students! I remember the first time I had a pregnant student in a group class and how scared I felt, and I never want you to feel that way! This course will teach you everything you need to know about teaching prenatal and postnatal students, whether you're doing it for your own personal knowledge, or maybe you're pregnant yourself, or you want to be able to reach more students- I'm here to help! Let me know if you have any additional questions about the courses!
