Abbey Brewer has an incredible ability to connect and convey the material she is presenting.  I took her Prenatal Training as I knew of her reputation and she was above and beyond my expectations.  Not only was the information relevant for pregnancy but I use a great deal of her poses and wisdom with all classes.  Since we dealt with the pelvic floor and SI issues, I find this is useful to many students whether they are pregnant or not.  I felt very confident to teach a prenatal class after Abbey’s training as she prepared us for the different needs and expectations during each trimester.  It is apparent when you are with Abbey that she has worked with hundreds of pregnant women over the years and she has a wealth of knowledge and experience.  I would highly recommend Abbey and her Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training to anyone interested in deepening their knowledge in this area.
