Blossom & Berry was founded by Gayle Berry in 2001 as a result of her experiences as a nervous new mother wanting to calm, soothe and bond with her baby and feel more confident understanding her daughter’s needs. Gayle wanted to share the positive experiences she gained from practising massage and yoga and created Blossom & Berry instead of returning to her career as a city lawyer.
Blossom & Berry promotes and teaches the importance of positive touch, communication and love through massage and yoga for the healthy development of babies and children. We offer a wide range of high quality and high value courses designed to teach students to teach massage and yoga and set up a successful practice with low risk, low cost and full support.
Gayle has over 14 years experience teaching massage and yoga to hundreds of parents and babies and students across the world. We have in depth knowledge on teaching infant massage and yoga in many different settings and to different cultures.
Going into the future, we want to increase the number of teachers in our network, expand into new countries with our training, create more awareness of the importance of positive interaction for parents and children and reach out with more voluntary projects for vulnerable parents and babies across the world.

The best courses that I have ever done! I loved them. Thank you Gayle for being such an inspiration and for training me so well. I cant imagine there being better baby massage and yoga training out there. Gayle enriches the training with her amazing knowledge and expertise in baby massage and yoga and makes the training thoroughly of interest to the student and maintains a really comfortable and stimulating learning environment. The training materials are so well thought out and helpful and Gayle is so very supportive throughout your journey
