About Dr Celia Swan

Celia is passionate about welcoming perinatal students into main stream classes as well as teaching pregnancy and postnatal classes. She practiced Obstetrics & Gynaecology at Newcastle Royal Infirmary, Neonates at Gloucester Royal Hospital, and currently works as a GP with a specialist interest in Women's Health, (when not teaching yoga or changing dirty nappies).

She started teaching in 2010 at which point she was scared of any perinatal students who arrived at class - but that has changed through experience, training & the birth of her own two tiddlers. She completed her Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training in 2005 with Ana Forrest, is a Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher & is a Poppy Perinatal Yoga Training Graduate.
