Amanda Gawthrope, new beginnings ...

I have had the privilege to work with Birthlight for over 25 years!

Never losing sight of my passion to play and relax in water and to help translate the teachings of Birthlight into fun loving practical movements in water, creating a lifelong affinity for this special and powerful environment.

I have had such a journey filled with love from all I have encountered along the way. From students of all nationalities,,from the parents I have met, and from my colleagues who have shared their wisdom and happy times. Plus of course the opportunity to work with babies and children and learn from them and their open expression of love and playfulness

Students, mothers and fathers alike have told me how the loving interactions and adventurous play in water has transformed their relationships and the way they relate to their children for the better

Children have open hearts and minds.they teach us so much when we listen.

It has come to a time where I need to lighten my load while having an opportunity to still full fill my passion to teach. I am a lucky lady as this opportunity presented and I will be retiring from Birthlight and starting a new journey with High Five in China, a swim yoga and gym franchise. I will Tutor and consult for them A very exciting project! one which will challenge me while allowing me enough time to concentrate on life's important things like my family.

Thank you Françoise Freedman for sharing your knowledge and love and thank you everyone in birthlight for the never ending spirals of joy ...
