⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I did my RPYT with Lauren, Island Prenatal Yoga in 2020. We got a well prepared manual with a wide range of important information. This includes Pranayama, Meditation, Asanas, Anatomy, Sequences, Teaching skills etc. and I loved every part of it. All the videos and online lectures were great to get more deep into the topic. Lauren is a lovely teacher with knowledge, a good spirit, a big heart and it is possible to ask her questions anytime. I am so happy that I chose Island Prenatal Yoga as my teaching school for my next step in my yoga journey and say THANK YOU for having me.” -Theresa, January 2021
