Our yoga teacher and antenatal expert: Lynn is bringing this Prenatal Yoga Series to Balanzs this Autumn!

About the teacher
Lynn is our Rotterdam Yin/Yang, Vinyasa, Gentle Flow and, most importantly, Prenatal Yoga teacher. She is also a Certified Birth & Postpartum Care Doula as well as a Certified Childbirth Educator and therefore knows a thing or two about the journey that is pregnancy and childbirth. Having conducted extensive research in maternal health care, receiving a Master’s degree in Medical Anthropology, as well as attending dozens of births around the world and helping many mothers navigate the postpartum time, she is full of knowledgeable and applicable tools which all mothers are able to use during this momentous time.

Her goal as a Prenatal Yoga teacher is to make yoga a “can” for new mothers, who are often confronted with a lot of “cannots” during this period of their lives. She seeks to empower women in finding that they already have everything they need within them to journey through one of the most natural processes of life. Lynn’s philosophy as a birth worker is “Happy Mama = Happy Baby” and so she uses yoga and birth work as a way to infuse new mothers’ lives with plenty of joy, compassion and support in order to help you be the most amazing mama you can be.
