HANNAH MUSE, E-RYT and RPYT, finds great joy in sharing the gift of yoga to empower women to trust their innate wisdom throughout the magical journey of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. A mama herself, as well as a devoted student and gifted teacher of prenatal, postnatal, and Ashtanga yoga, Hannah has studied extensively at Mount Madonna Center. Hannah’s prenatal yoga teachings have been inspired by her prenatal training with many great teachers, most notably Jane Austin, along with her training as a birth attendant (doula), and her own heart-opening, radically transformational experiences of mama-hood.
