About Dewi Chen
Like most yoginis, Dewi encountered yoga through the traditional Hatha Yoga lineage. After completing 200H in Hatha Yoga, she went on to complete trainings in Yin Yoga (200H), Forrest Yoga, Pre/post-natal Yoga and Kids & Family Yoga, as well as trainings in Bodywork and Spinning Babies® techniques. Whilst pursuing her pregnancy yoga teaching certification in London with Dr Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, she was introduced to the practices of Womb Yoga and Yoga Nidra, where she experienced deep connection and profound rest.
After completing her Womb Yoga (Well-Woman Yoga Therapy) training with Dr Uma, she felt a strong pull to create a community of support for women back home and Terra Luna Yoga soon came to be. Fuelled by her desire to empower mothers beyond the mat, she also trained as a birth & postpartum Doula in 2019 where she received additional training in Optimal Maternal Positioning®. Her understanding of birth physiology has since transformed the way she approaches her pre-natal and post-natal yoga classes and now feels even more empowered to support women more fully, from #wombtoworld.
