Jan Duffy is a prenatal teacher and doula who has helped hundreds of Irish women use yoga in pregnancy and childbirth. She is certified in a range of classes for women: pre- and post-natal and pelvic floor. She regularly leads active birth workshops for pregnant women and their partners, and has served as a doula for 11 moms in the last four years.Jan Duffy

Jan's philosophy comes from personal practice and from studying with great teachers. Jan relied on yoga to recover fully from neck surgery in 2000, and to deliver her baby daughters at home in 2007 and 2009. She passionately believes in yoga as a tool for fearless birthing. Jan completed her initial training and post graduate with YTI and her prenatal certification with Janice Clarfield at Kripalu, and has studied with Tias Little, Max Strom and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, among many others. She is a member the Doula Association of Ireland, and is trained in hypnobirthing.

By nurturing the developing bond between the mom and baby during pregnancy through movement and breath, the mother begins to trust the deep wisdom of her body and baby. Jan’s teaching focuses on strengthening, releasing and relaxing, while remaining comfortable. She encourages her students to see how yoga can help us cope with daily physical and emotional challenges, and bring a balanced perspective to our lives.
