About instructor


Aale-Triinu about herself:

“As a Kriya Hatha Yoga instructor I started to give yoga glasses for expectant women in 2006. Through these regular classes and also seminars I have offered preparation for natural birth for about 1000 women. Some of their feedback (in Estonian) can be read here.

After the birth of my second child in 2014 I started with my mom & baby classes.
During 2017-2018, after the birth of my third child, I studied to become professional birth doula and lactation consultant in Estonia, in Põlisrahva Tarkuste Kool. Since 2018 I have supported more than 50 women directly in their childbirth (The feedback in Estonia here).
Births I have assisted as a doula, have taken place both in hospitals and homes. I have also aided several natural and painless births, including water births and also c-sections (including planned ones).
It is my heart wish to support families in the process of conscious birth and it’s my passion to make women feel like poweful goddesses during giving birth. 🙂
For years already I have encouraged families to use mindfulness also at the time of giving birth and found this as magically efective as the physiotherapy and body work, too.
2023 I bacame also Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator (SpBCPE) and would gladly share my knowledge and skills with you during in-person Spinning Babies® Parent Class!

From all of my heart I’m happily supporting the magic process of becoming mom/dad.
