From Prenatal Teacher Training Grads:

Recent success story:

Kristina Leng has been building a successful private practice teaching Prenatal Yoga since graduating Yoga Garden SF Teacher Training earlier this year. But after a recent interview for what she believed to be a full time yoga instructor position, Kristina was hired as Yoga Program Coordinator for the McFetridge Sports Center in Chicago. She is now responsible for building the studio, creating the class schedule, and managing the entire Yoga Program.

Another perspective:

“I expected to learn how to create yoga classes for pregnant women, and I learned that and so much more! The lessons about the female anatomy, the effects of different types of birthing experiences, and the community created were beyond my expectations and part of what make this program stellar!”
