Do you have a passion for supporting women throughout pregnancy and motherhood?

Are you inspired to see movement as medicine?

Does the element of a mindful birth resonate with you?

Or maybe you are a yoga teacher with a need to better understand how to support pregnant women in a general yoga class, if so, this course will provide lots of amazing information.


Why train with me?

  1. As a mother, who delivered at home a breech baby, I can emphasise and meet the needs of those that desire to deliver a child into the least stressed environment possible.

  2. As a midwife I am privileged to have assisted women to feel empowered whether they deliver in hospital via NVD or following a caesarian section. All births are incredible and all women are supported.

  3. As a physiotherapist I specialise in creating movement programs that protect and strengthen women through both their reproductive years and later.

  4. As university lecturer of anatomy physiology, pathophysiology and health for many years, I love to help other people in their journey to understanding the complexities of the human experience.

  5. As a yoga practitioner since 1980 I have lived and breathed conscious yoga practice.

  6. As a yoga teacher since 1990 I continue to learn and expand my ability to make a positive impact in the yoga room in whatever small way I can.
