“How will Hug the Baby benefit my clients?”

Keeps posture in shape allowing the body to perform optimally.
Conditions the transverse and pelvic floor muscles in preparation for labor, birth, and recovery
Prevent or alleviate low back pain
And those are just a few of the many benefits your pregnant clients will get with this concept.

As instructors, we spend more time with our clients then probably their best friends or family members.

Our job is to nurture those relationships on a professional level, helping our clients to feel comfortable enough with us to freely and openly move their bodies to transformative places.

You are sharing in the most amazing time of their lives, their pregnancy, and they are trusting you with that time.
