Postnatal Recovery, Baby Massage and Baby Yoga

I attended my first yoga class in 1974. However, it was not until I became pregnant with my first child while working as a nurse in Asia that I realised the transformative potential within Yoga. I gained enormous benefit from my practice at this time which gave me the confidence to go on to have my second child at home, and to become a midwife.

I trained initially in South India at the Sivananda Vedanta Ashram in Kerala. I subsequently went on to train for a further 2 years with Janet Balaskas, Lolly Stirk and Yvonne Moore at the Active Birth Centre in London. It was at this time that I came to understand how a more intuitive approach to Yoga, based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, could allow something more beautiful to evolve in my practice.

Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom

Why your Persona matters …..check out what Orlando Bloom is up to today!

Teacher TrainingsToday it transpired on the news that Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom is flying into Manchester in the UK to teach acting and communication skills in a government-funded school in Cheshire. Bloom is going to help school children within the state system to find their own inner persona and to find their ability to communicate who they are to the world.

This is a big step forwards for the education system and for future generations. Not only will it help young people with their posture and with the way they articulate, but they will also really look at portraying an amplification of what’s going on inside them. It is important nowadays to be able to navigate in a world where Persona still matters, and to be able to get across to people who you are and what your hopes and dreams are!

I truly believe this is how we work on the Teacher Trainings here in Ibiza at www.yogateachertrainingibiza.com. We work on bringing out peoples innate abilities, their inherent talents, and allowing them to get that opportunity to put forwards their confidence of who they are out into the world. We find that it does really work wonders with peoples’ self-esteem, allows them to lessen their anxiety and to really immerse themselves in the work that we encourage them to do and the lifestyle that we engage in here.

Meet Fernanda, a graduate of Yoga Shala Ibiza Teacher Training Program. A practicing yogini since 1999, Fernanda graduated from the Yogashala Ibiza Teacher Training Program in 2011. Since then, she has been busy teaching a variety of yoga styles in Basel, Switzerland where she currently resides. Fernanda remembers her Yoga Teacher Training at YogaShala Ibiza as a memorable time building community and exploring the depths of yoga.

My time in Ibiza with Jacqueline planted seeds in my body, mind, and spirit that to this day are still growing. Jacqueline has a tremendous wealth and depth of yoga knowledge that she shares easily and effortlessly with her students. In addition, the yoga community that builds with the other yoga students is a tremendous source of support not only while in Ibiza, but also beyond. The students, the location and Jacqueline’s expertise combined to make the YogaShala Ibiza training a strong foundation to help me gain the tools and experience necessary to begin teaching yoga. When you train with Jacqueline, you have a mentor and a yoga guide for life!

Fernanda first fell in love with yoga because of the physical benefits of the practice. Over time, as the seeds planted from the YogaShala Ibiza training have germinated, yoga has infused itself deep into her body and mind and she is continuously discovering new depths to her practice. She finds that no matter what is going on in her life, she always feels more relaxed, more space in her body and mind, and more grounded after a practice.

Fernanda also studied Prenatal and Postnatal Teacher Training with Jacqueline and then went on to teach at The Yoga Show in London.

"A Perfect Combination of Practical and Theoretical experience. A very thorough coverage of Anatomy and Class planning plus having a chance to teach to real pregnant ladies and mothers and babies was invaluable."

"Since trying the classes at Yogashala Ibiza i've continued with yoga in the UK & it's been a godsend during my pregnancy to de-stress & stay flexible. I really look forward to returning to the garden of joy in 2016 with my baby. Thank you to all for accommodating my special circumstances & making me feel so welcome, "
Verity U 2015

"I had the most amazing time in Ibiza at the Yogashala. I was surrounded by some of the most inspirational people I've ever met and felt supported by my group who I know I will stay in contact with forever."
Lydia B 2015

"I am excited to be returning to Yogashala Ibiza for the pre-natal and post natal teacher training course with Jacqueline next month. I think it will be beautiful to be able to offer yoga to mothers and babies, for them to have that yoga connection, from the womb and beyond. During the 5 years I lived and worked in Dubai, my students were mainly women - of all ages and stages of life - I feel this training will complete my circle of experience.
Since my very first Power Yoga class with Jacqueline over a decade ago, progressing on to the BWY foundation and Diploma course and through the years that I have been teaching, I have found Jacqueline to be an exuberant and dedicated teacher who has been an inspiration to me; always supportive and full of wisdom and experience.
I'm looking forward to this next step on my yoga journey with Jacqueline, I know it will be a professional, carefully planned course - thorough, inclusive, full-on and fun!"

Ibiza Yoga Pregnancy & Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training 85 Hour Module

85 Hour Module

13th April - 22nd April 2019 (arrival and departure dates)
£1795.00 inclusive

Jacqueline Purnell is a prime mover in identifying the need for offering Yoga to pregnant women and mothers with babies.RPYS Yoga

It is a time in a woman's life that can be enhanced greatly by safe and appropriate yoga practices.

Jacqueline feels passionately that training teachers and those connected with childbirth is vital for creating safe and respectful spaces for women to be facilaitated to find balance in this special time in their lives and their families' lives.

This module is designed to create an opportunity to help you develop safe and appropriate means of increasing your student´s strength and flexibility to support their ascent towards childbirth and beyond.

Jacqueline has put together a programme, which combines Asanas, breath work and mudras to optimise safety and fluidity within the specialised teaching.

This module is suitable for existing Yoga Teachers who wish to integrate Pregnant women into their general classes and those who wish to offer classes and or courses to Pregnant women and Baby and Me classes and or courses.

This module is also suitable for Midwives, Doulas and anyone involved in Obstetrics and childbirth education.

We will work progressively through a range of asanas including:

Forward and backward bends, rotations, inversions, standing postures and arm-stretching asanas.

At the beginning of the module participants are encouraged to examine their own strengths and weaknesses and to develop a personal set of goals regarding the speciality of teaching pregnancy and postnatal recovery Yoga.

There is a crying need for pregnancy and postnatal recovery Yoga classes. We aim to set out basic guide lines for setting up and running pregnancy classes and classes for babies and mums.

Lots of expecting mums are referred to by their midwives and doctors and during their Yoga sessions they have the opportunity to develop a profound bond with their unborn child.

As well as enhancing the vitality, mobility, general health and emotional well-being of the expectant mother, pregnancy Yoga also provides a valuable quiet space in which to develop their relationship with the baby inside.

Once those babies are born, we owe it to them and their mothers to give them the chance to continue to develop that bond through Yoga, promoting postnatal well-being for mother and child.

It´s a special kind of work, and we need more teachers who are able to run these kind of classes.

An important aspect of the role of the Yoga teacher in both pre and postnatal work is to ´mother the mother´. For both the expectant and the new mother, her Yoga class can be a time to rest in the assurance that she is in safe hands, and that the experience and training of the teacher can allow her to enjoy the sense of being cared for, understood, supported and encouraged in her role as mother.
