Kind words about Anna from our Online Course graduates:

“I liked the info on stages of labour by Anna Watts, as I’m currently pregnant myself and have been avoiding research on this area (I thought it might freak me out!). But session 5 has actually reassured, rather than frightened me. I am feeling better about my own impending labour.”

“Anna Watts is the warmest and most gentle person and that really comes across in the video! Anyone who has her as a doula would be so lucky.”

“Anna – you are also wonderful. Watching and listening to you in the video lecture was one of the most memorable parts of the course for me, your explanations and commentary throughout was really gentle, nurturing and accessible. (I was watching it through the eyes of a newish mum who had a very difficult birth). I feel if I am ever pregnant again, I will be more confident about the birth process, and a lot of this has to do with seeing that video and hearing your commentary and input.”

“I had my final Skype session with Rosie and her energy was definitely felt even though it was via Skype. She gave me some great suggestions for my teaching and clarified a few points. More than anything I felt that she was a supportive mentor, and as a teacher sometimes it is hard to let our guard down and open ourselves up to vulnerability since it is usually us people are coming to for guidance and learning. I am thinking of booking more Skype sessions with her – it was a true blessing to find this training, for so many reasons: the resources, the cost is so reasonable, the lecture format is timed on our own schedule which is perfect if you have a scattered schedule with teaching, etc and also for the personal growth and development. I do feel a part of the Bliss Baby community now…thank you.”

What past course participants say
'I really loved this course. Thank you so much! I was pregnant as I was working through the course so found it so relevant and was able to apply it all straight away. I now have more confidence if a pregnant student comes to one of my general classes, and l look forward to holding Prenatal Yoga classes now too. The online tutorials and the information in the manual were so thorough and well done. I feel there was a lot of information for a small course. The manual has so much valuable practical info that can be implemented straight away into my classes. I found the birth section so helpful and informative for myself personally - it helped so so much with my mindset for my own birth. I also love the Pawanmuktasana series for myself - its just delicious! The online platform was super easy and straightforward to use. It was so well detailed but in language that is easy to read and understand. The different sections were clearly grouped and easy to follow. The assignment was a great chance to put all the learning together and really think deeply about why each pose is chosen. Star was so lovely and easy to chat to during the Skype session, and I felt so comfortable to ask any questions. The details and content were far more than I imagined when signing up, and have added hugely to my teaching - It has really been so helpful for my growth as a teacher and for my own practise / self. Thank you all so much for sharing your knowledge and love to others.'- Ashlee, New Zealand
'Having a toddler at home, and a second baby on the way being able to learn about prenatal yoga at my own pace was a top priority. The depth that the course goes into and the practical lessons, leaves little room for one to miss an in person teacher training. Thank you to all of the Bliss Baby Yoga team for your time and dedication in putting this course together. I felt this course went into great detail to cover the different issues that arise throughout pregnancy and helped to build confidence within myself in assisting each student in the class room. Job well done on creating a great online course!'- Jessica, QLD, Australia
'I enjoyed the online course because it enabled me to work at my own pace and offered a variety of mediums to learn from – online classes, videos, articles, audio lectures and the course manuals/handouts. Being pregnant whilst completing the course was a huge benefit to my own personal practice, understanding and becoming more aware and informed of the changes my body was going through. I felt the course was well balanced with the physical, emotional and spiritual sides of a yoga practice and covering the birth process is an invaluable bonus.I feel I have learnt some amazing tools that will assist me in my labour, physically and emotionally.'- Alison, VIC, Australia
'I researched for a program like this online extensively and was not only pleased, but my expectations were exceeded! I thought since it was online there would be aspects that I would miss from the classroom setting but I didn’t. It was practical and accessible. The format was easy to follow and provided quite a few different ways of studying from hands on, listening, practicing with the study, as well as videos provided. I found the homework assignments were amazing because they enabled me to put what I learned into a program. The final case studies were extremely beneficial. It's one thing to study and learn, it's another to take what you learned and design a class. Understanding that certain postures are contraindicated or not is one thing, but designing a class around it is another. It also helped give me a better understanding of what I should be accomplishing. I am extremely pleased with the program as well as the communication and level of experience of the staff. The program layout, expectations, and requirements left me feeling confident with my abilities and I am looking forward to teaching.'- Dawn, USA / Uzbekistan
'I have been practising yoga for the last 20 years and trained last year as a 200hr teacher, but I feel this course has brought me to a different level in my education, and given me a quiet confidence in delivering my other yoga classes. Thank you so much Ana and team, you are a true gem. So glad I found this training.'- Karlie, UK
'I enjoyed this Online Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training course very much. I loved that I could do it at my own pace, from home, whilst looking after my baby. I could go back over things I missed, and download all the material to refer back to later when planning classes etc. The materials surrounding the SIJ, Sciatica and Symphysis Pubis Diastasis were the most beneficial to me as I experienced a lot of these issues in my recent pregnancy. The course was very functional and easy to navigate.'- Mikhala, Victoria, Australia
'I really enjoyed this Online Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training course. I found it sparked a real desire towards supporting women in this way which I will take further. It took me longer than planned to complete the course simply as life got in the way but the great thing about distance learning is that it accommodates this! I feel I will be able to apply the knowledge I have gained right away! I think the combination of videos / audios / lectures was beneficial as hearing a voice /seeing a visual helps you feel really connected when distance learning. The emphasis on safety and on how to work with a range of conditions personally helps me feel adequately prepared to capably teach too. The practicals are excellent as getting an idea of how a pregnant woman would move through class is so important. The manual is clear and concise, and a great reference to have. I loved the assignment! It made me feel excited to teach and it was useful to be asked to make these considerations. Feedback from Kanako (during the Skype session) was constructive and made a lot of sense. The Skype meeting was a really solid way to round off the course as the conversation was really helpful and advice much appreciated! When it came to communicate with Kanako about our session this happened really efficiently even though we had a big time difference to work out. The course format was easy to understand, I had no issues accessing using my mobile or laptop which was really helpful, and I liked the structure of subject areas.'- Rachel, UK
'This online course was thorough, professionally delivered, well presented and thoughtful. I was very impressed by the teachers – all so caring, sensitive, professional, thorough, compassionate, well-informed, experienced and wise.'- Susan, ACT, Australia
'This course included really practical information that I will be able to apply not only in my prenatal classes, but in all public classes as there are often pregnant women who attend these. The online learning format was user-friendly and well structured. I feel 100% confident in my ability to apply the skills I have gained from this completing this course, in my teaching. I love that there are visual, auditory and practical elements - this kept me engaged. I found the handouts which categorised poses as either strengthening, releasing etc to be super helpful and a great quick guide - I will definitely refer to these when tailoring my classes to suit the unique needs of students. I loved the Skype at the end of the course - Star is wonderful and supportive!!! Her feedback was really helpful.'- Eve, Melbourne, VIC, Australia
'I have been a Clinical Pilates instructor for 13 years and have completed countless exercise science / physio / training courses on prenatal and postnatal work, but i found your course taught me things I have never learned or been aware of previously. It was wonderful. Thank you.'- Jennifer, United Arab Emirates

WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
'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
