Light bulbs

I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I am enjoying your training.  It is quite different than what I'm used to (aside from the prenatal aspect).

I love learning these sacred steps and how they apply to EVERY practice and EVERY "body."

It's wild how I've reinvented a few teaching language areas to help serve my students.  Light bulbs are going off, and the connection is beautiful.

I feel more confident

I’m glad that it was over time and not just a quick training and then you’re done. It gives you time to absorb the material and integrate it into my own teaching.

I feel like a stronger teacher, especially when it comes to people who back pain or issues related to pregnancy and postpartum.

I feel more confident as a teacher overall, thank you.

I love the Ma Yoga community

I had a wonderful experience with Ma Yoga. Jessica is always available and quick to respond to any questions. She wants you to be successful.

Through Ma Yoga I feel empowered as a working mom instead of apprehensive or lost in a corporate job that doesn't want to accept my new life as a mother.

Highly recommend

I would highly recommend taking this class even if you have absolutely no interest in teaching.

It’s just a great class to learn about the body and all the changes your body goes through. The amount of knowledge that I got this weekend would be so valuable to so many women in this community and in the world.

I can use this knowledge for every type of yoga class

I took this training to get more knowledge about appropriate poses for pregnant women. I got a lot more… the Ma Yoga principles are golden and I can use this knowledge for every type of yoga class and even apply them to my own personal life.

I feel blessed to have been given this gift. Thank you Jess!

Major breakthrough

I feel like I got more out of this one weekend than I did out of my whole 200 hour training.

One of my personal goals as an instructor is to have authentic themes. That said, I had a major break through last weekend. I am so grateful for the tools I was given to make my teaching more meaningful, and I have already began to incorporate what I learned into my sequences and class prep.

More comfortable as a woman

I would like to let you know that after completing the pre-natal teacher training, I not only feel more confident as a yoga teacher, but I also feel more comfortable as a woman.

I thank you for inspiring me to help women to feel more like themselves during pregnancy through the practice of yoga.

Warmth, community and support

The sense of warmth, community and support was extensive all weekend. I also so enjoyed going through the training while pregnant - it really helped me to feel the postures' benefits in my own body as we walked through them and all of the philosophies and themes really rang true for me.

I cannot wait to become a certified Ma Yoga instructor!

Perspective has shifted

What a wonderful experience and in two plus days my perspective has really shifted.

I came in simply to learn to be a better teacher to my pregnant students and left with a new appreciation for the birth process and for life in general. I now see the beauty in both pregnancy and giving birth.

Informative and inspiring

If there is one person in the community of yoga that I recommend to people for prenatal yoga and prenatal yoga trainings, it is Jessica. I have taken Jessica’s prenatal training several times and have found it to be not only informative but inspiring.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into this past weekend, and for the program in general. I came home feeling (albeit very tired) excited and ready to insert the elements into my own way of teaching.

Just blew me away

I came to “add something” to my teaching and what I received just blew me away…I am humbled by the creative force and beauty of nature and how the principles truly support this so clearly. This is the place I want to move from in my practice and in my life!

This was just what I needed and did not even know and I walk away with deep connection and great trust in what I am doing.

Clarity, humor, and humility

Second Prenatal TT

This was my second Prenatal TT with Jessica. Jessica shares her knowledge with such grace that after the first one, I was equipped to begin teaching the week following my first workshop.

A year later, another training with Jessica gave me additional teaching tools. I left with a deepening understanding of how we can help pregnant women use their yoga practice to move their bodies from a place of strength and beauty.

Focused on what they could do

Before your teacher training, I always focused on telling students what not to do.  On Tuesday night, I had 2 pregnant women in class! It was fantastic. I felt like the few minutes before class was very liberating for them, because we focused on how we could modify poses and what they could do.

They both did full practices that night and were able to practice safely at the same time. It was awesome!

Made me feel so welcome

I attended Jessica’s Pre-Natal Teacher Training and it was an invaluable addition to my alignment-based yoga education. She is clear, thorough, dynamic, and as the only male in the training … she made me feel so welcome and comfortable.

This training allows teachers of all levels to feel more confident when a pregnant student steps into their classroom.

Helped me connect with my femininity

This prenatal training helped me connect more deeply with my femininity and my practice. The information was presented in a clear, soft and useful way, and it inspired me to dive deeper not only into Pregnancy yoga but into myself, my body, my practice and my teaching.

Thank you Jessica for sharing your wisdom and energy and for opening new doors for women to explore their pregnancy in a safe and creative way!

Confident and inspired

The training this weekend was absolutely beautiful and inspiring. Your email came in just as I was creating a new sequence to teach to my new Mommies tomorrow morning, incorporating the inspirational movements and techniques that we learned.

Alive and inspired

There are few other times in my life when I have felt so alive and inspired as I did during those three days. I cried many times in that class, tears of pure joy and wonder. The process of pregnancy, labor, and delivery is so powerful, it leaves me completely and utterly humbled. I have known for a long time that yoga is my path, but it wasn’t until this prenatal training that I realized that prenatal yoga is my path within my path 😉

She reached out to every one of us with compassion and warmth, and we learned so much. There is something uniquely strong, wise, and supportive about a group of women who come together to learn about pregnancy and mothering.

We were in excellent hands with her!

Reflected my experience

I was 8 months pregnant when I took Jessica’s prenatal teacher training and was so happy to find (finally) a prenatal program that reflected my experience – that my body was still capable and it wanted to practice.

She has incredible respect for pregnancy and her intelligent alignment notes proved helpful to me in labor–internal rotation plus external rotation = more space for baby–even when he is moments away from greeting the world!

My understanding of theming has deepened

Until I took your training in June/2009 I didn’t understand how to integrate [therapeutic alignment principles] into my prenatal yoga classes…

Through your course my understanding of theming has deepened so much… I love how you shared with us how you set a theme for your day & how you use your personal daily theme for your classes… You gave me a lot.

Linda C (From B.C. Canada)

Until I took your training in June/2009 I didn’t understand how to integrate [therapeutic alignment principles] into my prenatal yoga classes… Through your course my understanding of theming has deepened so much… I love how you shared with us how you set a theme for your day & how you use your personal daily theme for your classes… You gave me a lot.

Amazing experience

I wanted to thank you for this past weekend. It was such an amazing experience for me because I was reminded of my passion and purpose. I was so inspired by thinking about birthing a new version of myself because that is exactly the next chapter and stage of my life that I am trying to work on.

Yesterday, I was so excited to apply what I have learned and left class feeling so empowered because I used my theme for a regular vinyasa class. It was so intense and amazing!

I can't wait for your future trainings and to be involved in this process. Thank you so much again for your love, power, and wisdom!

Deepened my teaching techniques.

The Yoga of Pregnancy deepened my teaching techniques. I learned about bringing space, earth, water, fire, and air in the body, mind, and heart.

Based on this I can teach easily. It’s fun!

I feel connected to sacred life

After this training, I feel connected to sacred life amidst universal challenge and change. What worked: a small group, combination lecture/ sharing/ workbook/ videos/ guest speaker/ practice teaching. And the pure spirit of “Jess”.

Don’t hesitate. Do it! Be receptive. Have faith in the process. It is a gift to me personally and to ALL.

Ma Yoga principles are golden

I took this training to get more knowledge about appropriate poses for pregnant women. I got a lot more… the Ma Yoga principles are golden and I can use this knowledge for every type of yoga class and even apply them to my own personal life. I feel blessed to have been given this gift. Thank you Jess!

I have to admit that at first it was difficult to wrap my head around the five principles, but then it really clicked! It helped everything fall into place for me in my teaching.

Reignited my love of yoga

I must say I am loving the course with you. You are an amazing teacher and mentor and I am so grateful you were brought in my life.

I thought I would just learn about pregnancy yoga, but instead I have deepened my own practice and reignited my love of yoga.

Never felt so confident

The training is incredibly well structured, with a wealth of tools and wisdom to be shared. Plus Jessica will answer all of your questions and then some. I took a hiatus from teaching before this training and was hoping to feel empowered to teach again. After 6 sessions with Jessica I am already back to it with ease and excitement.

I loved the community and spiritual principles that were always at play. I immediately felt comfortable enough to have a voice and make a mistake, which is a big deal. There have been numerous trainings where I have become invisible because the welcoming judge free environment simply wasn’t there.

I feel more confident in my own home practice as well. Bringing the magic of the 5 elements into my practice in this organic way has instilled a sense of renewal.

Above and Beyond

This training felt like it went above and beyond. There is way more to prenatal yoga than just the do’s and don’ts.

Jessica is an amazing instructor that has put a lot of thought and care into the program.

I’m confident that I’ll be a wonderful prenatal instructor upon completion of the program.

Encouragement and guidance

The Vision and Strategy call with Jessica was exactly what I needed it to be! She answered all my questions with practicality and honesty. The beauty of our conversation was in her deep appreciation and understanding for my desire to find balance in my life and my many roles within it; roles as wife and mother as well as a business owner, and professional support person for birthing families in my community. As I hung up the phone I was filled with a deep gratitude for Jessica's encouragement and guidance.

I feel more confident

I’m glad that it was over time and not just a quick training and then you’re done. It gives you time to absorb the material and integrate it into my own teaching.

I feel like a stronger teacher, especially when it comes to people who back pain or issues related to pregnancy and postpartum.

I feel more confident as a teacher overall, thank you.

I love the Ma Yoga community

I had a wonderful experience with Ma Yoga. Jessica is always available and quick to respond to any questions. She wants you to be successful.

Through Ma Yoga I feel empowered as a working mom instead of apprehensive or lost in a corporate job that doesn't want to accept my new life as a mother.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I am enjoying your training.  It is quite different than what I'm used to (aside from the prenatal aspect).

I love learning these sacred steps and how they apply to EVERY practice and EVERY "body."

It's wild how I've reinvented a few teaching language areas to help serve my students.  Light bulbs are going off, and the connection is beautiful.
