Elise Bowerman , E-RYT 500, RPYT, YACEP, MUTU Pro
"It's more than just yoga." Elise Bowerman is the owner of Sweet Momma Yoga, an in-person and online support system for perinatal yoga teachers and their students, along with instructing the first 85-hour 'Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training: Bump, Baby, and Beyond' in Michigan. She also teaches group and individual yoga classes with MUTU System influence. As a mother of two with an extensive movement background, having received a B.S. in Pre-Dance/Movement Therapy from Eastern Michigan University in 2004, Elise has been able to weave the mental body with the physical body in her offerings of yoga. (The quote above is one she hears often from her students.) Her pursuit in life is to lift the veil of those, especially women, who may feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable in their bodies through education, experiential movement, and exploring the thoughts in the mind. Additionally, Elise mentors yoga teachers who wish to support perinatal women in their classes, and/or become a perinatal yoga teacher.
