Gayle Berry-Founder of Blossom & Berry, BA, PGCE, IAIM, Birthlight, Dip Hypno, ITEC, Author, Expert on baby massage & yoga
Blossom & Berry was founded by Gayle Berry in 2002. Gayle trained as a solicitor but after experiencing the benefits of baby massage with her baby, she retrained and became a baby massage instructor. Gayle’s enthusiasm for working with parents, babies and children led to her training in baby yoga, pregnancy massage and aromatherapy. Gayle is also a qualified life coach and specialises in working with parents and is a clinical hypnotherapist. She also has three children who have inspired her to train to teach massage and yoga to infants and children of all ages.
Gayle has worked with a number of organisations such as Pampers, Nurofen for Children, Colief and New World Music to create resources and provide information on baby massage and yoga. She has written articles and has provided advice on baby massage and yoga for Mother & Baby Magazine and Practical Parenting Magazine. Gayle was also the lead speaker for Nurofen for Children’s Mum’s School at the Baby Show at the NEC and London’s Earls Court.
Gayle created Blossom & Berry’s unique baby massage and yoga courses combining massage, movement and music to increase the enjoyment of massage/yoga sessions and aid baby’s development through a complete sensory experience. Gayle’s expert knowledge led to her publishing her book “Baby Massage-Expert Know-how at your fingertips” which has sold copies across the world. Take a look at the video below which show Gayle giving advice on baby massage and yoga and provide a flavour of what Blossom & Berry has to offer you.
