About the course
The 100 hour Specialist fertility and yin yoga teacher training program is taught by Dr Amanda Waaldyk a Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Fertility Yoga Teacher Phoebe Cole a Myotherapist, Pre and post natal Pilates & Yoga Teacher. Combing over twenty years of clinical experience, together Amanda and Phoebe have created an innovative and modern training that has a “whole body approach”. Incorporating myo-fascial release and yin yoga into the training program helps the body and nervous system to remove trauma, so the body can rebuild and reach full restoration in all areas. This is a key concept when it comes to conceiving.
