Hi, my name is Ellie and I am a certified yoga teacher specialising in pre and postnatal yoga. Over the years of teaching I created The Om Moms Club just for you to enjoy your journey for bump, birth and beyond. I now teach yoga in the sunshine in Dubai for moms to be and moms and I am also online to the rest of the world with The Om Moms OM Demand ‘Your Home Studio’.
Alongside yoga I am a trained Hypnobirthing Instructor and Birth educator. I teach courses for the modern mom-to-be with my own Hypnobirthing and Birth workshops in person in Dubai and The Om Moms has their own ‘Your Hypnobirthing Toolbox’ course online available to everyone.
I also am a postnatal yoga teacher for Moms and babies, a baby massage teacher and a Mom myself to a little yogi boy!
I started out my journey as a flight attendant after travelling and simply fell in love with the world, and this is where I discovered my passion of yoga, Sydney to be precise! I had dabbled in yoga at the gym but after going to my first ‘real’ class I knew instantly I would be back. I bought a mat which I still have to this day and carried it in my suitcase everywhere discovering different types and styles yoga around the world. I travelled like crazy until I became pregnant with my little boy and settled down in Scotland.
Becoming pregnant and having a baby was a totally new and surreal thing for me. I wish I could say I Hypnobirthed my little boy into the world but unfortunately back then I knew nothing at all about pregnancy and even less about birth and babies. I just thought I would ‘wing it’. My winging it took my labour down a medicalised route (something I hadn’t planned for as I thought I would be all au-natural) and even though it was quick, it wasn’t the experience I thought it would be. I thought after, ‘Was the medicalised route even necessary?’ and ‘Could I have changed my own path if I had known a little more?’ After having my little boy I set up a successful yoga business teaching Pregnancy yoga, Mum and baby yoga, and Women’s yoga. Over time my pregnancy classes were not just about how to stay flexible and relaxed in pregnancy but I started to teach more about preparation for birth. Through my constant research I came across Hypnobirthing and decided to study it to add that little extra magic to my classes (I’ve always been a fan of a big long relaxation after a yoga class). After training through KGH The Home of Hypnobirthing I was empowered through knowledge and set up my own classes at The Om Moms Club. And here I am today doing what I love and doing what I do best, yoga, and helping empower women, teaching them they have a voice and how they can make choices in their own journey in pregnancy, and not just in pregnancy but in life as well. The Om Moms is worldwide so where ever you are come join the club!
