    "This five-day course was a fantastic opportunity to train with a leader in the field of yoga for motherhood (Pregnancy, Postnatal, and Babies). Our whole group benefited from Sally’s breadth of knowledge and experience and her warm and welcoming personality created a spirit of inclusivity fostered in our very diverse group a desire to share personal insights and experiences of working with mothers and babies during the amazing transition to parenthood. We all gained so much from Sally’s nuggets of wisdom."

    "Katey’s friendliness and organisational skills made us all feel like VIPs!"

    "I really feel the Baby yoga, and all that goes with it, has given me the most valuable wherewithal to help parents help themselves in this challenging role of parenting in our society. I think that as parents and teachers we are pioneering creative ways of enabling our children to be happy and to grow and learn to take our world forward."

    "C'est dans le regard des parents que le nouveau né se construit, mais c'est dans le sourire et le premier cri de son enfant u'il devient parent. Ainsi nait de ce double échange le lien qui les uni."
