I’m deeply touched and inspired. This is not only a class of pregnancy yoga. This is a journey of self discovery. It is about conscious birthing on all levels, i understand myself deeper as a woman. There’s lots of birthing knowledge and wisdom in the course, but the most important and touching part is experiencing the connections between our body and our inner strength, and at the same time to acknowledge our vulnerability with acceptance and non- judgemental mind.
I have gained so much from the training! I learned so much in a short amount of time.
On a personal level, it reconnected me back to my practice and reignited my love for teaching. I gained confidence again and feel like Sheila facilitated us to go deeper and find our path within the training. It's given me a breath of fresh air and excitement again.
I gained a lot of knowledge about pregnancy, feel like I finally understood what happens during pregnancy, and know more about women (which I didn't take time to get to know before, although I'm a woman). Apart from the knowledge, I also gain some energy from my classmates that make me feel "the passion of life”. I love all the sharing part and get to know ever beautiful souls.
I also can feel the difference in my teaching style, during pregnancy yoga I feel I leveled up my ability of class designing, feel I’m more careful than before.
I gain a lot of insight about my own journey as a human being. I haven't consciously touched the topic of my own birth until now. The training also showed me what I know so far about pregnancy and pre- /peri- /postnatal, about the woman's body and process, and it gave me more insight to the world of a becoming mom.

Pregnancy is a karmic contract between the souls: mother, father, baby and the ancestors. At the moment of conception, the elements of life including earth, water, fire, air and ether begin to dance, where the human form starts to take shape in the womb of the mother. Being pregnant, having a chance to carry the baby in the holy temple, we are bind to love and share every moment with this soul. The best gift to the child, is to be mindful and conscious with every single act.
May you be joyful and peaceful!
Blessings from Sheila, lead trainer of this prenatal ytt course.
