Brisbane Yoga Teacher

"I was always a little wary teaching pregnant women, until I attended the Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training with Vanessa at Being Yoga. Vanessa showed us how to find a balance between strength and softness, and inspired me not to be 'afraid' of pregnant women coming to class! Every teacher training or yoga class I have been to with Being Yoga has been top quality, with Vanessa and Michael and all their team sharing their experience and wisdom with generosity and integrity."
