Become a Pregnancy Yoga teacher, Postnatal Yoga teacher, Children's Yoga and/or Antenatal Educator with LushTums
Tens of thousands of pregnant women and new mums have enjoyed our classes since 2007. We have grown organically over just the last few years and now have teachers all over the UK. By training to become a teacher with us you can help bring the best in yoga and latest in antenatal education to even more women, their partners and children, helping to empower them during this hugely transformative time.
What will you learn?
Combining evidence-based science, psychotherapy and ancient yoga traditions, our courses are fascinating and in-depth - delivered in a grounded, balanced and clear way. Enjoy our intensive contact days together learning everything you need to know regarding teaching methods, yoga, women, pregnancy, birth, anatomy & physiology, motherhood, babies, children and parenting. All training is fully supported by our course tutors who are all experts in their fields with decades of experience and our own in-house midwife. You will be welcomed to join the LushTums Trainees private Facebook group to receive support, inspiration, latest research and evidence - as it is our aim to ensure you always stay at the leading edge of this specialism.
At the core of our ethos is the belief that 'everything has a place' - so we honour our students by giving them information on all possible options and outcomes, enabling and empowering them to make their own informed decisions along the way.
While pregnancy, birth, motherhood and parenting are all 'natural', everyday experiences which are for many amazing and life-changing, this is not always the reality for all women. Some women will find it isolating, exhausting, stressful and overwhelming.
Unlike other trainings or approaches, we do not put any 'ideals' about pregnancy, birth or motherhood on any pedestals. Instead we will teach you how to be clear, realistic and open so you are able to fully support the individual women, children, their families and all of their choices, in your classes, at all times.
We are delighted to say that we receive wonderful feedback daily from women all across the UK who love LushTums and what we offer to help them on their journeys - however they unfold - so we hope to bring this refreshing approach and deep know-how to people everywhere.
Year of Experience
Clare began as a yoga teacher back in 2003. LushTums was then created by her in Brighton in 2007, after the birth of her son, her first child. Realising the incredible benefits her own yoga practice had on her pregnancy, birth and mothering journey, she decided to share this with others and LushTums was born.
Clare is also a registered Antenatal Educator and Birth Doula with FEDANT (the UK's leading body for antenatal education and midwifery) and has personally taught and worked with well over 10,000 women; teaching them pregnancy yoga, antenatal education, postnatal yoga and women's yoga. You'll still find Clare teaching weekly in several studios across Brighton today.
Clare brings together some of the best teachers in this field who collaborate to deliver various modules of the training course she has designed. You'll benefit from the years of experience from our team of experts in:
- Mindfulness, meditation and mental health - the importance of this for pregnancy women and new mothers
- Dedicated in-house midwife - so you can fully understand the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, birth, postnatal recovery
- NLP master practitioner and life coach - the importance of language, the stories we tell, language and behaviour and the huge impact this has on women and critically the children coming through
- Restorative, Scaravelli-inspired and Vinyasa Flow styles - blended and adapted to suit the pregnant and postnatal anatomy
- Fascia, intelligent movement & it's relationship to yoga - delivered by expert author Joanne Avison.
Today, the LushTums team is growing with teachers all working together to support, empower and help even more women than ever, on their journeys to motherhood, supported by Clare and the in-house team at HQ... We couldn't be more delighted!
Is LushTums and/or WiggleBums for you?
We have exciting opportunities for new teachers to launch in areas across the UK and around the world!
Our current teachers come from all walks of life - some are mothers, some aren't, some were yoga teachers already, many weren't, we have trained midwives, doulas and massage therapists, executives and teachers.
The common theme between them all is a passion for working in yoga, education, pregnancy, birth, babies, mamas, parenthood and/or children. So if you are looking for a rewarding and flexible career, teaching classes, courses or running retreats with us, we would love to hear from you.
Our training is complete and in-depth, meaning if you have had had no previous experience in yoga, antenatal education or working in this field at all, then not to worry. We will fully train you and support you on your way. We are looking for passion, enthusiasm and commitment, the rest we can help you with!
Our courses each take approximately three months to complete, however after your first 5 days, you will be ready to begin practice teaching and gaining practical experience.
Fully mentored and supported along the way, Clare and senior team at HQ, along with our expert tutors and our community of teachers, are all on hand to help you on your way.
