Course reviews

I highly recommend Catherine's Prenatal TT to anyone considering the course. Being pregnant at the time myself, I learned so much about the changes happening to my body and appropriate modifications to make. The training was very holistic, and went beyond just the physical poses and adjustments. I found the pranayama particularly interesting and very helpful. Prenatal training is quite technical regarding the anatomy and physiology, however, it was never overwhelming as it was delivered in manageable chunks and we immediately put into practice what we had learnt. Catherine is very authentic in her approach to teaching and she is clearly passionate about the course content.

I attended a prenatal YTT with Catherine a year ago. I found the course to be incredibly insightful and informative, and her teaching presence very nurturing and encouraging.
You can tell that a lot of thought and care has gone into the structure, planning and preparation of the programme, whilst also leaving time for our complicated and sometimes simple questions, that were always answered fully with patience and understanding. As someone who struggled with the more academic side of things, I felt confidently held by Catherine, who ensured that everyone’s different ability levels and learning styles were supported, which to me, is one of the most important attributes to look for in an educator.There was A LOT of fascinating information packed into the prenatal course, and it’s a credit to Catherine’s supportive nature and unmatched experience that I feel confident in the knowledge and skills gained to deliver my own top quality pregnancy classes to students.
This is my 3rd YTT to date (and my first course with Catherine) and I can honestly say that the knowledge learned in those 9 days has had a far more profound impact on my teaching style than the previous two- all of my classes have benefitted from the course not just when teaching, but also in improved planning techniques, and crucially how I viewed myself as a teacher.…….Sian
