Here is some feedback from participants on our new livestream courses which are done via Zoom with a live tutor and who testify how online courses have worked well for them:

Aquanatal Yoga

“I recently took part in the Aquanatal Yoga Blended course since covid and it was brilliant. Learning via zoom was easy to follow and interactive too. There was time for discussions and I didn’t feel rushed. Then the pool session felt very safe, we all wore visors and kept distant. We got to experience some lovely adapted group practices as well as time to experiment with different movements in the water. Would definitely recommend this way of learning, it’s super easy to follow, accessing zoom and the recorded sessions are easy too. Thank you Francoise for such a memorable training course.

Baby Massage & Baby Yoga

I truly had a BINBY experience within this training [via Zoom]! Although I missed the opportunity to meet with my tutor and fellow teachers in person, I got the opportunity to meet a wonderful group of people from across Europe. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience learning with Marion! She is a wonderful asset to the Birthlight community and I am thankful that our paths crossed!

“When we had the first class i love it immediately, the way they use Zoom is amazing, i feel like it was a face to face class”

— Maria (Bryony Vickers’ Baby Yoga 1&2 course, September 2020)

I was a little bit hesitant at first, since I thought I’d miss getting to know the other students. Although the course takes place online, Bryony manages to make us feel as if there is no screen between us. Since we get divided into small groups a couple of times during the course, we can get to know the other students and connect with each other as well. “

“I have to say I was a little worried signing up for the online course. I think face to face training is so valuable. I assumed there would not be a lot of interaction with other students and practical hands on learning (like my previous baby massage training for example) so I was worried that I would finish the course not feeling fully prepared to teach. However, only half-ish way through right now and I feel I will be more than fully prepared and  confident to teach at the end. I found the whole course so clear, easy to understand, professional and well delivered from start to now.  It’s all gone very smoothly so far! Overall I find it to be on a par with a face to face training course. Lots of interaction in the breakout rooms which I wasn’t expecting.  Also ample time to ask questions. The online learning via the website has been quite easy to navigate, interesting and informative. Love it all so far! In fact, for me, this has been so easy to work into my life that I’d choose an online option again over a face to face.”

“Birthlight Baby Yoga courses are fun to do but there is a lot of knowledge and theory behind all the practice. Sally Lomas is an excellent teacher. I completed Baby Yoga Level 1 in an in-person group and Baby Yoga Level 2 online (because of lock down restrictions) – both were fantastic courses and I’m looking forward to completing Toddler Yoga next.

— Jacqueline Harthill, Happy Parents Club (Sally Lomas’ Baby Yoga 2, June/July 2020)

“I would highly recommend Birthlight as a training provider. Having completed Baby Yoga Level 1 last year I was keen to progress to Level 2 but then the pandemic struck. Thankfully Birthlight designed a live and interactive online version of the Baby Yoga Level 2 which I’ve just completed from my own home. As before the training, delivered by Sally Lomas, was excellent. The online programme and timetable was well thought out and the training resources were fab, from the manual to the small group practice, full group practice to video clips, all were really helpful. Thank you Sally, Helen, Kirsteen and all at Birthlight for a great course!”

“The online level 2 baby yoga course has been an excellent and positive experience. It has built my confidence and empowered me to develop my practice and move forward with my business. Thank you.”

“Loved the 4 sessions Over two weeks. Much easier to retain and absorb the information. Enjoyed the online training more than I thought I would. It was easy to use and lovely to meet people from around the world.
I was nervous as my computer skills are limited and haven’t had the courage to do any online sessions myself. However this was delivered with complete confidence and professionalism putting any concerns I had away. It would have been nice to meet up in person but I feel I definitely didn’t miss out on any learning, maybe a little networking but that’s all.”

Toddler Yoga

“Birthlight run really useful baby yoga courses, both online and in person. There are a lot of advantages to in person courses such as meeting new people and getting to practice with real babies/toddlers in the room. However, online has its advantages also such as no travelling to a venue or overnight stays in hotels. Either way, the teaching is interesting and very informative. I am ready to start teaching toddler yoga as soon as I have my certificate!”
