I created Blossom & Berry in 2001 after the birth of my daughter, Emily. Emily completely changed my life. I loved being a mum more than anything in the world and I wanted to create a business that enabled me to spend my time with her (and my two boys born within 3 years) and to support other parents.

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 based on scientific evidence and cultural practices from around the world. We now 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.
My mission is to be the number one baby massage and yoga teacher training provider in the world with the best teachers and the best courses. I am very grateful for the amazing global team I have to help this happen. We have branches across the world focusing on Mexico, Australia, Dubai and Europe. We can also set up trainings in any other country in the world. I want to expand our network of teachers to help support new parents and babies and change the world through teaching nurturing touch, massage & yoga. I would love you to join me and teach love.
We are a truly global training provider and we are continuing in our mission to spread love across the world with our work. You can train online with us anywhere in the world or attend one of our in person trainings.
We also have a number of charitable projects in Africa which we have set up to empower the most vulnerable parents and babies in poverty.
We are able to travel to teach anywhere in the world (pretty much!) so let us know if you would like us to come and provide training for you.
We have a network of teachers in Mexico and in other parts of the Spanish speaking world. We have both online training and in person training which is led by Sandy.

We work with a number of charites in Mexico to increase the social impact of our work.

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
