Jane Austin RYT, CCE

Passionate about yoga and the transformative power of motherhood, Jane specializes in working with pre- and postnatal women. She has been involved with the birthing community since 1990, working as a homebirth midwife, doula (labor assistant) and childbirth educator. Jane is a certified yoga teacher and enjoys working with all populations. Many teachers and traditions, including Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Anusara, influence her teaching.  She continues to study asana (postures) with Tony Briggs and yoga philosophy with Kate Holcombe.  Among her most inspirational teachers have been the many hundreds of pregnant women and couples she has worked with over the years.  Her own children and her experience of motherhood have been a huge influence on her teaching as well.  Jane weaves her experience into her classes in a humorous, yet thoughtful way.

Jane teaches a comprehensive Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training which attracts teachers from all over the world. She also teaches the pre- and postnatal component of the Yoga Tree teacher training. Jane has volunteered for many years teaching a weekly yoga class to the teachers and staff at her kids’ elementary school. 

As a lifelong student, Jane continues to study the many facets of yoga. Although yoga provides the framework for her spiritual practice, it is her life as a mother that has given her true opportunity for spiritual growth.
