The course was fantastic. It really shifted the way I need to think about moving the body throughout pregnancy and beyond.
It was a reminder that prenatal yoga is not just about keeping a woman physically active, but also about preparing her mentally for labour and birth.

The quality of what you teach, Sally, in your pregnancy yoga teacher training, is far above and beyond anything which I have encountered before.
I honestly feel very, very grateful to have had the opportunity to train with & learn from you, and I’m looking forward to starting my own classes in the next few months.
With much love and appreciation.

Calling all male yoga teachers!

I’ve just attended a Postnatal Yoga (YAPTA) workshop with Sally Parkes which has been really useful for an area I previously considered pretty daunting. Sally made the session inclusive, informative, practical & enjoyable and I came away feeling confident of safely integrating any postnatal students attending my classes.

Grateful for knowledge & life! 

The last 2 weeks of Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training with the fabulous  extremely knowledgeable Sally Parkes Yoga have been such a blessing. 

Anyone looking to deepen their knowledge, look no further. I have learned so much; from Anatomy to soft skills, so we can support our pre & postnatal mums & babies.

As a mum of 3, so many important aspects of the prenatal & postnatal journey were covered, I can finally reason and comprehend it with my yoga teacher hat on. We are always learning! Love it!

A massive development for me is that we truly can soften and slow down our practice. I have always enjoyed a strong practice, but yoga is truly nourishing for body & mind when we practice kindness & acceptance.

This training has once again shown me the diversity of what yoga is and I am grateful for the opportunity. 

Yoga support and benefits us in so many ways; breastwork, mindfulness, equanimity & asana… It’s life-changing. I cannot wait to bring the pregnancy classes to my mums to be! Thank you Sally!

Anita McGoay

Yoga Teacher

I want to thank you for an amazing time on this course. I am really sad it’s over, but I am sure more is to come!
I can truly say this was one of the best courses that I have completed and one of the best experiences to share yoga with others. You created a great space, so it was so easy to learn and share.
Thank you for all the support and the lovely meditation session.

Susie Smillie

Yoga Teacher

As a personal trainer, I wanted to increase my knowledge so I could offer more to my clients, so I signed up to Sally Parkes’s Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Course.

I was a little nervous at first due to my lack of yoga experience & knowledge, but can now say that it was one of the most interesting & well constructed courses I have completed.
The group consisted of a diverse mix of yoga instructors, midwife & another personal trainer. It was a very chilled out group and Sally created a relaxed learning environment with great practical lessons, backed with a wealth of experience, learning materials and lecture from a midwife guest speaker.

The whole course was a truly enlightening experience. I learnt so much and enjoyed it tremendously, it has inspired me to becoming a fully qualified instructor!

I would recommend this course to any personal trainer, don’t think that lack of yoga experience will hold you back, it really won’t. Thanks Sally for a brilliant course!

Caz Robinson

Personal Trainer

After completing Sally Parkes’s 200Hour YTT in 2014, there was only going to be one Pregnancy Yoga course for me!

Sally is incredibly inspiring, with a wealth of knowledge, experience & the ability to create a relaxed and positive teaching environment. An all round unique experience.

The course is a balanced mix of practical & theory. The coursework is thought provoking & manageable.

If you are after a knowledgeable, relaxed and positive teacher training with a sensible dose of humour, I would highly recommend Sally’s training courses.

Susie Betteridge

Senior Physiotherapist

Thank you Sally for the great experience of doing your Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I loved that it’s so inclusive and creates a relaxed way of learning. It’s adaptable to the individual and there’s no pressure to perform.

Everyone was really lovely and supportive, and Sally is truly professional & friendly. She has a unique teaching style which makes you want to learn more from her. More importantly she has a great sense of humour!

A thoroughly enjoyable course, I cannot wait to start teaching!

Ayesha Nauth

Yoga Teacher

I couldn’t recommend this course enough. It was really well structured, covered a lot of both the physical and also some of the emotional aspects that ladies may experience during and after pregnancy.

Amelia Brookes


I recently completed this pregnancy yoga teacher training with Sally after completing my 200hr teacher training with her last summer.
Sally’s 200hr course was very good and provided me with a strong foundation, so I decided that I wanted to do the pregnancy yoga teacher training with her also.

This course was very informative, well-structured and I gained so much knowledge; not only about pregnancy yoga, postures and how to modify, but also about the female body and how it changes during pregnancy and postnatally.

I have been fortunate enough to start teaching a pregnancy class every week, and I have to say, that all the knowledge I have learned, it has definitely allowed me to fully focus to teach pregnancy classes to the best of my ability.

Marita Papayiannis

Yoga Teacher

I loved this course. It was all clearly explained and there was time allowed to share stories & experiences between all the attendees of the course.
I learned a lot.

Ivana Rejec-Fenchietto

Yoga Teacher

I just wanted to thank you so much for a great course. You’re a great teacher, Sally and I enjoyed it all so much!

Pip Jackson

Sally is an outstanding yogini who makes things which are not so easy to work through, very easy to understand.
Thanks Sally, you are a great teacher.

Marleni Flores Hill

Yoga Teacher & Athlete, @yogawithmarleni

Sally is a wonderful teacher. Patient, experienced and has so much knowledge to share with her students.
We all have the utmost respect for her as she takes time with everyone. I can’t wait to get started with teaching!

Sue Fryer

Yoga Teacher

I couldn’t recommend this course enough. It was really well structured, covered a lot of both the physical and also some of the emotional aspects that ladies may experience during and after pregnancy.

Amelia Brookes


Sally is a great teacher! She is fun, spontaneous and she kept the intensive course quite dynamic so it didn’t feel tiring or boring.
The days were quite well structured, with a few practice yoga sessions during the day mixed with theory, group exercises and discussions.

Samantha Rudge

Hypnobirthing Teacher

We received a very comprehensive manual with a lot of information and quite a few sequences that we could use in our own classes or as inspiration to prepare our own.
You can tell that there was a lot of preparation for this manual and Sally has put a lot of effort into preparing this teacher training.

Marcela De Leon

Doula & Yoga Teacher

I loved the Advanced Postnatal Yoga Training course! 

I’d already completed postnatal yoga training but found that once I was actually teaching classes, my clients’ experiences were so much broader and so frequently involved much more complexity than I felt confident addressing. 

I love that now I am able to offer the proper 1-2-1 support & care, taking into account all that the client has been through and addressing it all with the attention they need.
