Melanie Mackintosh is co-owner of the Australian Yoga Academy in Melbourne, Victoria (http://www.australianyogaacademy.com). Melanie is delighted to be offering the Positive Birth Program through Hypnobirthing Australia from AYA’s location in Prahran, where she has been teaching both prenatal and postnatal classes to mums and their birthing partners since 2010.
Melanie is one of Australia’s leading prenatal and postnatal yoga teachers. It is her most joyous teaching experience to support mums in their preparation for birthing and in the time after having given birth. Melanie is so excited to be adding Hypnobirthing to the skills that she can share with mums and their birthing partners as they prepare for the most momentous event in their lives – meeting their baby!
Melanie has been a yoga teacher since 2006 and is the Director of Education at AYA; Australia’s most renowned yoga teacher training school. Melanie leads foundation level yoga teacher training as well as professional development for experienced teachers in the areas of prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher training, all around Australia. She is a contributor to the women’s health online community, The Drop In (https://www.dropbio.com/), talks prenatal yoga on podcasts (https://podcast.flowartists.com/episodes/melanie-mackintosh/) and is presently establishing the Prahran branch of the Positive Birth Movement.
Melanie’s greatest achievements are her two beautiful children, born calmly and joyously using yoga and hypnobirthing techniques. Melanie’s greatest wish is for every family to experience the benefits of yoga and hypnobirthing so that babies may be born in an empowered, serene and safe manner.
