Who is this training for ?: Yoga teachers looking to enrich and broaden the scope of their work in the postnatal period, as well as other professionals in the perinatal area (midwives, doulas, antenatal teachers, osteopaths, kinés,…).
Lynn Murphy : Lynn has 30 years of experience in the field of yoga. After the birth of her two children she trained at the world renowned Active Birth Centre, London, specialising primarily in the pre & postnatal period. On completion she was invited to teach at the centre were she continues to this day as Co-Director. She is involved in a number of different trainings for the postnatal period starting with her Baby & Me Nurture days at the Active Birth Centre as well as in conjunction with others.
Lynn’s yoga is Scaravelli inspired, she focuses on the deep intelligence of the body that is within all of us. believing that if we look carefully enough with attentive guidance we will find movement that resonates from our very core allowing us to undo years of held patterns.This approach works wonderfully for the pre & post natal body.
She also delivers classes & workshops in her local children’s centre and hospital, for parents as well as midwifes & obstetricians. Her aim is to help in the improvement of services for women, believing strongly that women’s health is a political and feminist issue.
Lynn has trained, tutored and taught many women over the last two decades, and loves sharing her skills in yoga, touch and mindfulness with others, her aim is to help bring better support to all new mothers and their babies overall wellbeing.
