About Us

LushTums founder, Clare Maddalena, began teaching yoga in 2003. Since then she has worked with tens of thousands of people - mothers, fathers, babies and children - seeing first hand the enormous benefit that her empowering approach to yoga, mindfulness & education can bring.

Today at LushTums, we are more passionate than ever about sharing these seemingly simple yet hugely powerful practices to parents & children everywhere. Using the tools they will learn in your classes, you will be helping them become more able to cope with life’s challenges, reduce stress and develop awareness & compassion. These practices are skills for life that in the long run have a positive ripple effect and can actually help make the world a better place.

Our cutting-edge trainings offer a unique cross-disciplinary approach, combining yoga’s ancient wisdom with the latest in scientific research along with the practicalities on how best to set up a successful business in the yoga industry. Unlike many training schools, we will not teach you set sequences, class plans or posture scripts to regurgitate. Instead we teach to a much more in-depth level, so you can be creative and respond to specific student’s needs and anatomy with confidence, in each class, every time.

Our content is accredited by awarding bodies such as Yoga Alliance Professionals and FEDANT (the UK’s leading body for antenatal education and midwifery), recognising our excellence in this field and all guest tutors that teach on our training courses have in excess of 15-20 years experience in their fields; enabling you to benefit from decades of knowledge to become an expert yourself within just a few short months.

Once you have trained with us you will be all set to launch your own business - and if you wish to receive on-going support & mentoring to help you on your way you can sign up for that too.

Train with us today and we can help you create a flexible and rewarding career helping others, doing something you love.
