Claire trained with Peter Walker in 2004. Peter who has been a physical therapist and yoga teacher since the late 1970s, studied yoga, experiential anatomy and physiology until the mid ’80s with Arthur Balaskas, an associate member of RD Laing’s Philadelphia Association. During this period he worked within a group supervised by Dr Laing giving psycho-gymnastic and rebirthing workshops both in the UK and abroad. Between 1980-1986 Peter taught yoga techniques and massage in a number of Dr Laing’s therapeutic communities. From the early eighties he has worked with new mothers and babies, and babies with special needs, teaching postnatal yoga for mothers and developmental baby massage and soft gymnastics for infants and children.
His inspirational work has really inspired me to share this beautiful offering … I have had the honour and privilege to teach baby massage as a private practitioner, as a practitioner working from Children’s Centres and with babies, toddlers and children with a range of needs e.g. mobility issues, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome, digestive concerns and circulatory concerns, babies who have had hip concerns, umbilical hernias, intolerances and allergies … Over the years I have felt honoured to support so many beautiful babies and families offering massage classes to both mums and dads.
