Jane Austin

Yoga Teacher, Child Birth Educator

Jane Austin has worked with mothers for more than two decades as a yoga teacher, midwife, doula (labor assistant), and childbirth educator.

She is founder and director of Mama Tree, a Yoga Alliance-registered school dedicated to training yoga teachers, birth professionals, and other health professionals interested in teaching prenatal and postnatal yoga. Jane’s teacher training program attracts students from all over the world who are interested in utilizing the practice of yoga to support prenatal and postnatal women physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Jane offers women a mindful, supportive, and nourishing yoga practice that empowers them through pregnancy, childbirth, and all of the years that follow. Although her style is influenced by many teachers and traditions—including Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Anusara—Jane’s most inspirational teachers remain her children and the many mamas and couples she has worked with. It is her vision to bring yoga to all pregnant women.
