birthlight tutor - Ingrid Lewis
Ingrid Lewis took initiation into Kriya Yoga in 1989. This was followed by Birthlight Yoga and Sivananda Yoga teacher trainings. Ingrid has worked in Germany, the UK and Central Africa in both, allopathic and complementary medicine for over 18 years. She is also a trained Physiotherapist, Public Health Professional, Reflexologist, Reiki-Teacher, Bach Flower Remedies Practitioner & Teacher and Doula. Ingrid works in public health in developing countries and complementary medicine specialising in women’s health.
While living in Congo (Central Africa) she was initiated by Aka hunter-gatherer women into their secret knowledge and ancestral rites. It is vital to reconsider ancient knowledge about the unique female power of reproduction & birth if we are to change the current trend towards intervention during pregnancy, labour and birth. The Aka women have allowed Ingrid to share their wisdom with women in the West to help them birth well. Ingrid’s aim is to enable women to be in charge of their own bodies, birth in dignity and rejoice in their femininity.
Ingrid lives in London with her husband and 2 children.
