Mari Notaras Bliss Baby Yoga Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

Mari Notaras has taught and practiced yoga for over 15 years.  Mari's passion and interest in prenatal yoga naturally developed when she fell pregnant with her first child. She discovered that yoga during pregnancy was such a powerful tool - finding incredible peace, strength, and a strong connection to the feminine energy that was residing deep within.

Mari has taught pregnant women and new mums for over 8 years, and has studied extensively in the area of Pre and Post Natal Yoga with many great pre natal teachers from both Australia and around the world.

Mari has facilitated Bliss Baby Yoga Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training courses for a number of years, throughout Australia and internationally.

"Mari is so full of wisdom and shares this depth of knowledge in such a way that it is easy to understand and apply to individual teaching situations."
- Maree, Yoga Teacher and Bliss Baby Yoga Prenatal YTT graduate

Our Bliss Baby Yoga weekend Prenatal / Postnatal 20 / 22 hour intensive modules are suitable for yoga teachers, or those currently or planning to undertake yoga teacher training, as well as those working in related fields of women's health, such as midwives.
