Student Testimonials

I had a very positive learning experience in this course. I learned a different style and found it to be extremely useful, especially the practical sessions and the Yoga Nidra sessions. It was very good to attend extra sessions of compulsory group classes and Andiappan classes. In the group classes, I experienced a variety of subjects. Namaste

After joined prenatal YTT in IYA, my yoga journey is completely changed and gave different perspective in my own practice. Learned under the highly knowledgeable and experienced yoga masters gave wonderful learning experience. Even though the entire course is online, classes were so lively and all our doubts were clearly explained in class itself. Posture classes explained by Master Vishnu and Meditation classes explained by Master Dhiraj were highly informative and enjoyed their session. Two hour andiappan yoga sessions were really helpful. My kind suggestion is that consider EST time zone while planning future YTT courses and yoga sessions too.

It was a positive experience overall. The teachers are knowledgeable and well rounded in their topics. However, I prefer that the course is only for online students or onsite students. I would love to extend my regards to Miss Priyanka -One of the teachers She was quite interactive and gave the information in a very open and nice way - She answered all our questions promptly and even provided a space to ask questions

I really enjoyed learning yoga at this Institute. Gathered lots and lots of information both in theory as well as in practical. I think if the course includes more case studies like women with pregnancy complications and undergone pregnancy yoga then it will be added advantage to students. Thank you

I am happy that I chose to do 100 hrs pre & post-natal yoga with International Yoga Academy, Hong Kong. It was a very enriching experience. The faculties are very knowledgeable and the classes are conducted with lots of enthusiasm to share their knowledge. The Andiappan yoga classes and the group classes made me fitter and healthier. Those classes made me understand teaching techniques. I want to thank Master Vishnu and Master Dheeraj for being such wonderful teachers.

I am an Osteopath, specialising in Women's Health and Paediatrics - incorporating new skills to help expectant mothers in their pregnancy journey is initially my goal. I remember when I arrived to HK, 2 years ago, going to a yoga class and meeting a few people who had been practicing yoga for years and how it is implemented in their every day life routine - I was quite surprised of how many yoga studios was available in HK and how the general population praise it. I practiced yoga in the past and always enjoyed, not the class itself, but how it made me feel mentally and physically immediately after the class. I always use to drag myself to yoga classes at first, I didn't really enjoy it, I use to find it pretty boring - until I actually develop a sense of wholesomeness and strength during the practice. From there on learning about yoga and how to practice yoga was an objective. My learning experience of this course - I would describe it as efficient and productive. I am very satisfied with the teaching and amazing skills in yoga of the masters that provided the course. I would have liked to spend more time practicing sequences for prenatal yoga during the evening sessions and experience feedback. I highly enjoyed going through and learning about Yoga Nidra - practicing and understanding. I personally think that practice makes the difference in becoming a good yoga teacher. Additionally, the course gave me a good recapitulative picture of what happens and the challenges expectant mother faces during their pregnancy - as I am a healthcare practitioner I have studied pregnancy for some time now, but I enjoyed going through things again. The content of the workbook is very thorough and complete. Overall, I am very satisfied to have done this course and I can't wait to improve my skills in yoga and translate it to women to help and support them through, hopefully, a healthy and happy pregnancy.

In Prenatal YTT various prenatal yoga asanas where explained and taught clearly with sufficient modifications to suit each trimester. Andiappan yoga sessions were extremely helpful,the masters clearly taught the concept, sequence and preparatory warmups. Also sufficient modification and use of props for each pose was explained very well.This teacher training has boosted my confidence as a yoga instructor. Overall the course was good and well structured.

I love this course and I enjoyed learning from each and every teacher. I love how Master Vishnu relate the previous knowledge (including anatomy and vayus) to the conditions of pregnancy at the beginning of the course. I am also inspired by the meditation practice guided by Master Dhiraj as the practice was super mind-healing. And of course, it is very rewarding to join this program as I learnt so much for modifying the poses to suit pregnant women's need with the clear explanation and demonstration by Master Yogananth. As for the course design, due to the closure of the studio, our teaching assessment was moved to one week before the scheduled date. The time for preparation is sufficient but it would be better if there's better synchronization between the examiner's expectations and the requirements stated in the email. Also, I understand there might be fewer pregnant women coming to the studio for prenatal classes possibly due to Covid-19. But this seems to be a bit irrelevant to use 30 hours out of our 100-hour training to do regular group classes. Of course the group classes in the studio are all very nice and I enjoyed them very much. However, it will be even better if the studio still opens the prenatal yoga classes for we the RPYT students to register and experience how a 60-hour prenatal class would actually carry out (as at least 4 of them are pregnant and we can observe how the master would manage their conditions).

The prenatal yoga teacher class has deepened my knowledge about pregnancy, including the hormones change and pregnancy in different stages. More importantly, I gain more insight of what yoga poses should be emphasized and avoided to ease the common symptoms during pregnancy. I feel more confident to teach students especially for pregnant students now. Namaste!

Masters took care of the online prenatal YTT students even they were having studio class at the same time. I never felt neglected as masters did answer the questions we asked and guide us to do asana. It was a wonderful and informative course. It’s perfect for all yoga practitioners especially mamas-to-be.

The online prenatal yoga teacher training course has far exceeded my expectations. It covers all the topics I was willing to learn and the fact of different teachers teaching their field of expertise gives us an in depth understanding of the pre, during and post pregnancy phases. I feel confident that once I finish this course I will be able to guide my students in prenatal yoga and apply the yoga techniques learnt from the course in my classes. I am grateful to this course for having widened my horizon in the field of yoga and for the personal growth and development that has taken place within me

Firstly,I would like to express my appreciation and heartfelt thanks to the administrators and teachers of IYA,HK and Asana Andiappan Chennai centres. I am very glad that I enrolled in the online Prenatal yoga training course with HK centre, as I got to meet and learn from various experts. ( I would say pillars in the yoga community). The support I got and the knowledge I acquired in both theory and practical modules are immense. In both modules,teachers took time to clear doubts and shared many tips / knowledge which will be very useful in my teacher's training. I loved the interaction between teachers and students throughout this course. My preferred choice to get training will always be " in person". Nevertheless, the teaching style was not compromised in online learning. I am truly blessed to have had such amazing teaching faculty.Thank you Dr.Anjhana, Master Dheeraj, Master Dileep and Master Vishnu for sharing the wealth of your knowledge in both theory and practical modules.All of you have an excellent approach to teaching and answering questions related to anatomy, pranayama and deep relaxation methods, asanas and its variations. Attending practical sessions with Master Yogananth, Master Dheeraj,Master Maharajan, Master Keshav, Master Vishnu, Master Mahesh Iyappan and last but not the least ,Master Rajadurai,has been a new learning experience everyday. Their unique expertise, dedication to teaching and caring nature is a true blessing for all the trainees. It's a wonderful idea to have an online teacher - student interaction ,question and answer session after each practical lesson.

Online course certification for prenatal yoga was effective and conducted professionally. The instructors were great sources of knowledge and welcomed every question from the students. Special mention to the 2 hrs Andiappan classes which were very effective. It gave me an opportunity to learn from Master Yogananth, Master Vishnu, Master Rajadurai and Master Maharajan, Master Dilip Pillai, Master Dhiraj, Master Anuja and Master Edith. Great course and I highly recommend it.

I truly enjoyed Prenatal YTT with Anahata Yoga. With all the generous and caring masters’ guidance, my classmates and I have learnt a lot throughout this 100 hours Prenatal YTT course. As a woman who is planning to have a baby and an enthusiastic yoga practitioner, I have understood a lot more about pregnancy which gives me great confidence in my yoga journey. Before commencing taking part in this course, I have a lot of misunderstanding about practicing yoga during pregnancy. After taking this YTT course, I have learned asanas, pranayama techniques and meditation techniques recommended for pregnancy. Knowing how to perform safely and avoid injury for pregnant yogis. All the variations and modifications of asanas, pranayama, and meditation for pregnant women are very useful. Thank you very much to all Masters’ guidance and patience. Namaste

I spent lots of time researching where to take my yoga teacher training and I find that I make my right choice here. It was a great experience of my first YTT in Anahata, the training let me know more about yoga that it isn’t not only about asana but many things as well. All Masters that teach the training are knowledgeable, well-experienced and supportive. For the prenatal training, we’re not only learn doing asana, we also know about mediation and some contradictions during pregnancy. It’s really help me a lot to deepen my yoga knowledge especially for pregnant women. The best part was that we touched on various meditation skills, modification of prenatal series, reason for doing these poses and more. The Masters are always welcome for questions and extra help. Besides training course, the group classes and Andiappan classes improve my yoga skills immensely and my knowledge of the asanas grow dramatically. During Andiappan classes, it’s more chance for me to interact with other classmates and let me assisting each other for doing certain poses. This is a really good way to learn that I have more experience to assist student when I teach in the future. In general, the studio is warm and welcoming, no matter my yoga skill level is experienced or not. I definitely recommend this YTT course to my yogi friends

I joined this course, as I am pregnant myself and I wanted to deepen my yoga practice during pregnancy, and to immerse myself in an overall yogic- experience in this phase. I was a little worried initially about completing 100 hours in such a short span of time, but it is amazing how much flexibility the course offered in terms of different classes and timings that I could choose from depending on my energy levels week on week ranging from Pranayama, Yin Yoga or more challenging Hatha practices. I loved how the course was structured and gave a lot of emphasis to pranayama, chakras, Tratak meditation and aspects of yoga that are little appreciated or taught. I felt that all the masters have this great field of energy around them making the class interactions a deeply uplifting experience. All masters are extremely down-to-earth and friendly and were happy to answer any questions we had in great detail. They also all have a different unique style of teaching, different backgrounds and come with their own set of experiences with pregnant women, which make the course very holistic as the students are exposed to a range of teaching methods, alternate ways to sequence a class and perspectives. I also loved the discussions on food and life-style choices for pregnant women that are rooted in Ayurveda, Garbha Shastra (old Vedic texts pertaining to the womb) and old Indian practices. Occasionally I found some aspects of these teachings quite controversial, but I still personally loved it as it expanded my thought process even though I did not necessarily agree with the masters on some topics. This course overall, was an excellent pregnancy management tool for my own pregnancy, other than being an excellent teacher training course. I can earnestly say it helped me manage several of my pregnancy related issues like body stiffness, aches and pains, insomnia, mood swings, gas and reflux that I had dealt with last pregnancy. It helped me relax deeply, and connect with my body and my baby with a confidence and intuition that I did not know I possessed. Understanding the necessary modifications for a pregnant anatomy, enabled me to attend any yoga class and modify it to work for me. I will recommend this course especially to all pregnant women (not just aspiring teachers) if you want to have a strong, healthy, profoundly fulfilling pregnancy in a yogic way. I feel so blessed to have found this course in my current phase, as it will always make this pregnancy a very special one for me.

This is my second Yoga Teacher Training course and I have learnt and benefited a lot from this course. Pregnancy is an incredibly special time in women’s life. So this makes me very curious about prenatal yoga. As I’m a yoga lover (I’m also a woman?), I would like to know how yoga can help with a pregnancy and this course was most educational. I have learnt about physiological and emotional changes in pregnancy period. Pregnant women may have different conditions like depression, back pain and insomnia… etc. I am now more fully appreciate the sacrifice of mother. I have learnt many interdictions and asana suitable for pregnant women and what to avoid during this period now. I hope my knowledge can help with my teaching of pregnant women. Finally, I do want to thank all Masters who had taught me in this course. They are all very kind and professional, I hope I can join other advanced classes in the coming year! Namaste
