Rev. Viviana Collazo was an amazing teacher and guide during this class. She was very attentive and available. She provided us with so much information and knowledge that makes me feel prepared to move forward as a prenatal yoga teacher and apply these techniques. Viviana did a wonderful job of connecting with her students, which is very difficult to do when teaching virtually. Her camera positioning was also very helpful when teaching us poses, floor work, and simple sitting positions for the mother. I hope I get to take another class with Viviana in the future. — Roberta Lacefield
Dr. Collazo is an excellent presenter! She made learning the concepts easy and left us all with a sense of comfort in being able to share the knowledge we gained. Her manual and handouts visually added to the information she presented verbally and her demonstration of asanas and techniques with modifications were very helpful. — Carlisa J. Hurtt
Viviana was so generous and gracious in the information she provided us. I feel very equipped to go forward and teach Prenatal Yoga. — Past Participant
