"Thank you so much for an incredible week. I learned so much, not just about teaching natal yoga, but I feel the training deepened my own understanding of Yoga and my work as a teacher. I really loved the way you weaved tantra, mantra, chanting, meditation with the practical nuts and bolts in such a condensed time. Each day was so full and I left every afternoon feeling inspired." -Caitlin Talbot ‬

"I feel like I returned home with a toolbox filled with new information, a new perspective and self-confidence to both educate others on the prenatal experience, but also prepare myself for the weeks and months to come. You have truly a beautiful way of delivering the information - a way that is so moving, useful, approachable and SO much fun. A friend texted to ask how the weekend was going yesterday and the best way I could answer was this: My mind is blown and my heart is open. It's all so true.”- Allison Russell‬

"Sue’s Awakening the Goddess Training provides the perfect combination of intelligent teaching tools, spiritual wisdom and individual empowerment. I recommend it to teachers who want to best serve their pre/post-natal students, as well as to those who want to think critically about the effects of pregnancy and birth on the individual, and explore the divine, creative pulsation that makes all life possible.”- Denise Corsini‬
