Welcome to Dancing Doula!
I am a board certified birth / postpartum doula -
Doula Association of North America (DONA).
I am a certified Hatha Yoga instructor for over 20 years.
I currently specialize in prenatal, parent-baby and
I teach weekly open level, vinyasa, and
restorative yoga classes.
I am a birth educator.
I offer in-home private birth education consultations.
In addition to yoga, I I have a background teaching and performing the ancient dance Raqs Sharqi, AKA "Bellydance." Raqs Sharqui is the earliest form of birth and fertility dance ritual. Many of the organic movements of this dance form helps to strengthen and tone the body (focusing on the belly and hips) as well as promoting strength, grace, joy, flexibility; and encourages receptivity within the process of labor and birth. Hip movements and upright movement and dance also encourage relaxation and the flow of labor.
While not every women will want to dance through her labor, I enjoy incorporating some of the more low impact and earthy moves into my weekly prenatal yoga classes as additional coping tools to practice for labor and birth.
I am honored to do this work and passionate about
supporting birthing moms and their families through their
sacred journey through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
