One-on-one Sessions with a Bliss Baby Yoga Facilitator


Every yoga teacher and dedicated yoga practitioner knows that to stay fresh and inspired in your yoga practice and teaching you need to keep deepening and refining your knowledge and experience, which means exposing yourself to a broad range of teachers, and mentoring.

That’s why we are delighted to announce that we are now offering one-on-one (1:1) sessions with our experienced and passionate Bliss Baby Yoga Course Facilitators.

How are these sessions conducted?
These sessions are conducted via Video Call from the comfort and convenience of your own home. After the session, you’ll receive a recording of your session to keep – to prompt your memory of what you discussed / practised. And, if you choose the Personalised Yoga Session, you’ll also be given your own ‘bespoke’ written yoga sequence (with illustrations) to support your ongoing home practice.

Accelerate your learning and professional development by enjoying some private, ‘masterclass’ time with your favourite Bliss Baby Yoga Teacher. This is your opportunity to ‘pick our brains’! Come prepared with all the questions you’ve been wanting to ask about yoga and women’s health.

Receive valuable feedback and suggestions to support your teaching – such as on sequencing, specialised posture & practice repertoires, use of props, developing and refining teaching and meditation scripts. This can help you move forward more confidently in your work in prenatal / postnatal / women’s yoga / restorative yoga with your students.

You might also use this opportunity to ask questions about your own practice to receive fresh ideas, inspiration and valuable tips to support your health and wellbeing.

Think of your Bliss Baby Yoga Facilitator as your personal ‘yoga coach’: she is there to guide and support you in your goals and visions in your yoga teaching and/or niche yoga business management.

Who are these Mentoring Sessions for?

These sessions are for Bliss Baby Yoga course graduates – no matter what course you’ve done with us – and they are also appropriate if you’ve trained elsewhere and you would like to enhance your knowledge with some of our ‘Bliss Baby magic’.

You don’t have to be a yoga teacher! You might also benefit from these specialised mentoring sessions if you’re a serious student thinking of undertaking yoga teacher training or you’d just like some help and advice with your own yoga practice.

You may also work in a related field such as a midwifery, birth support (doula), massage, or physiotherapy, and you’d like some pointers on how to bring a more gentle, feminine-yoga approach into your work with your clients.

How do I choose the best mentor for me?

We believe that an important factor in a successful mentoring relationship is finding a ‘good fit’. For this reason, we offer a free 15 minute call to discuss your needs so that we can set you up with the most appropriate mentor and mentoring package, to best help you achieve your goals and desired outcomes. Contact us to request your free Mentoring Enquiry Call. To request your free Mentoring Enquiry Call, contact us.

How do the Mentoring Sessions work?

To get the most out of your online mentoring session we recommend you come prepared with any questions you’d like to ask as well any particular area of yoga for women or restorative yoga that you’d like to discuss further. You might even want to bring a sample sequence that you’ve been teaching or practising to get your Bliss Baby Facilitator’s feedback.

Your teacher will then respond accordingly, which may involve, from time to time, her demonstrating or even taking you through yoga postures and/or practices (meditation, pranayama, relaxation).


Enjoy a fully personalized yoga session with one of our highly experienced and sensitive Bliss Baby Yoga teachers.

Tell us your goals for either enriching or kickstarting your home-practice, and your teacher will design a tailor-made yoga practice, just for you!

Who are these Personalised Yoga Classes for?

These private, online yoga sessions are for any level of yoga experience. You may be a yoga teacher looking for fresh inspiration and input in your home practice, or you may be new to yoga.

You may be looking for a therapeutic yoga sequence to help you with a stress-related, or women’s health issue.

Or, you might be pregnant, or a new mother, and seeking an individualised prenatal or postnatal yoga session from one of our Bliss Baby Yoga experts that you can practice at home to support you during your pregnancy/ new motherhood.

It doesn’t matter what is going on with your body. That’s the beauty of these personalized, bespoke sessions; they are so much more preferable to the one-size-fits-all approach of group classes!

Your teacher can work with you on a yoga session that meets your specific needs as a woman.

How does it work?

The Personalised Yoga Class involves your Bliss Baby Yoga teacher taking you through a complete yoga practice that you can then keep to practise ongoingly at home, in your own time. Your session will generally involve a 10 minute introduction and orientation, then about 35 minutes teaching you your personalized sequence, and the last 10 minutes or so for any questions about your sequence.

Before you receive your online skype lesson with your facilitator, you will have completed a questionnaire giving your teacher specific information about your health background and intention and goals for your practice. For example, you may have a history of a menstrual health imbalance like endometriosis and you’d like a sequence you can practice at home to support your hormonal health, reduce your stress levels, and maybe help you get pregnant. Or, another example – you may just want a home practice that is more feminine and flowing to support your health, vitality and wellbeing. Whatever your needs, your teacher will do her best, using her skills and experience, to tailor a unique yoga sequence just for you.

What past online mentoring / personalised class participants say:
'My online mentoring session with Star was fantastic, and exactly what I needed at that time. She held space for me to express my fears and concerns about my teaching, and was able to offer some really helpful tools to get me over the hurdle. I went from feeling totally anxious and unable to see the way forward, to being strong and confident in my knowledge, clear on how I would like to teach moving forward, and excited to step into class to teach my upcoming Prenatal Yoga series. Such a beneficial session.'- Nikki, NSW, Australia
'From my first mentoring session with Ana, I could tell that she was excellent at picking up on the subtle cues of my personality and adapting her questioning and discussion to where I was currently at on my yoga teaching journey. Before and after every session, she had always taken some time for consideration, which meant our sessions were always productive and I walked away with a clear plan and goals to work towards before our next session. Over six sessions, I have gone from having a messy cluster of ideas to having successfully streamlined my yoga business and feeling confident in the direction I am moving to share yoga with women. I now have some exciting online programs and resources moving towards completion / fruition.'- Claire, TAS, Australia

'I am loving this online fertility course that you (Rosie and Ana) have created. It is brilliant and so professional. It will be wonderfully supportive for me as I care for my clients. Thank you for the time and effort that must have gone into it.' Amanda (SA, AUS), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training graduate
'The course was exactly what I needed. I liked the emphasis on safety and the therapeutic recommendations for the various pregnancy related ailments. Ana’s style of teaching offers a practical approach, whilst being centred, empathetic and nurturing. The flexibility of being able to do the course in my own time was very much appreciated. I have a busy teaching schedule and I’m a mum so it was good to be able to take the time I needed to complete the course properly. I really liked the structure of the course, very clear and easy to follow.' Julia (UK), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga TT graduate
'This course is so wholistic - I love how it truly focuses on the body and spirit of a new mama, and her growing/new babe. It’s not just asana. The course addresses the WHOLE mama, and I think that is invaluable. It’s exactly what I was looking for when researching online courses. It would’ve made more sense for me to do a course in the USA but I was really drawn to this one for the spiritual and emotional elements.' Amber (USA), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'I loved that I could do this course at my own pace. I’m 27 weeks pregnant and loved doing this course whilst pregnant! This has reignited my desire to teach, in a different way than I used to - softer and more feminine.' Casey (QLD, AUS), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'The Bliss Baby Yoga Level 2 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is a woven together in a synergistic balance of theory and practical. The deeply feminine approach is clearly offered from a place of deep knowing as each of the facilitators draw on their wisdom and knowledge, sharing this information in an easily relatable and digestible way. Not only aesthetically pleasing, the platform is easy and seamless to navigate. It truly is fabulous! The final video call mentoring session phenomenal. Star held space so beautifully and offered supportive guidance which really landed in my bones. I loved this connection as the culmination of our studies, thank you. I feel really spoilt!' Kirstie (VIC, AUS), Online L1 & L2 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'I benefited from the Bliss Baby Yoga Online L1 Restorative Yoga TT course on both a personal and professional level. Personally, it worked as an anchor, it helped me through difficult times and I keep coming back to it every week to cultivate it's grounding effect. Professionally, I fell in love with the teaching of Restorative Yoga, it's my favorite Yoga style to teach, and I am very passionate about it and how I want to give it to my students. With the whole course and all the references you gave I feel comfortable about applying the knowledge and techniques I learned.' Anna (France), Online L1 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'This course was packed full of valuable information to help support a pregnant mom through her entire pregnancy and into the first several months of motherhood. It gave me an abundance of tangible material that is available to refer back to. I am completely satisfied with the contents of this course, which is accessible to anyone, anywhere, interested in developing their skills for prenatal and postnatal yoga. I have already recommended it to other teachers at our studio.' Mary (USA), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'Both of the courses I have completed with Bliss Bay Yoga were so well done. It has been a truly invaluable learning experience for me. I must say that I have learnt more during your online course then during my residential 200h teacher training - I honestly couldn't expect that a remote training would be so helpful and constructive. Everything was perfect; the atmosphere, all of the knowledge. The course was very informative, useful and inspiring. I engaged in this course during a lockdown and with my newborn at home, and I couldn't be happier. The Baby Bliss Yoga team is very professional and thanks to this course I feel confident to start my teaching career.' Marica (Italy), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate
'Thank you so much for an amazing online course. I was so blown away by all the beautiful content and felt like I received such a deep level of learning from it. I have been craving more knowledge and depth into Yoga for Fertility and you well and truly delivered. I ran a small workshop from my home on Sunday to put what i had learnt to practice. It was an intimate group of 3 women and it was just so beautiful! Thank you again. I'm so so grateful!' Jenny (NSW, AUS), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility TT graduate
'I found your Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training course to be tremendously worthwhile and very enjoyable. The course was very practical and accessible. I was able to apply what I was learning right away since everything was laid out very clearly. I have a personal journey with infertility so the material was both personally and professionally valuable to me. Since it is a subject so close to me I was really able to feel the benefits of the various sequences.' Prairie (New Zealand), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training graduate
