Whole Birth Resources is a mindfulness-based educational forum offering innovative classes, teacher training and educational materials that cultivate a deeper understanding and trust in the everyday miracle of pregnancy, birth and family life.

Whole Birth Resources is located in Santa Cruz, California and offers Whole Birth Yoga and support classes, New Parent and Baby movement, yoga and support classes, day long retreats for pregnant couples, Whole Birth Yoga teacher trainings, and counseling for the childbearing years. In addition, we produce audio tapes and CDs for prenatal yoga,meditation and holistic labor preparation.

Whole Birth Resources was founded in 1999 by Robin Sale, Childbirth Educator/Counselor, Perinatal Hypnotherapist and Prenatal Yoga Educator. She brings over 23 years of experience supporting women and their families during the childbearing years to honor the sacred and vital work of welcoming our children into the world.

Whole Birth Yoga is a synthesis of Robin's long time love of yoga, birth, dance, meditation, the natural world and her observation over many years of how these things have supported women to cross the bridge into motherhood.

Robin credits much of the inspiration for Whole Birth to the pioneering work of Gayle Peterson, Ph.D., and her holistic model of childbirth preparation and the widely acclaimed work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. and his colleagues at the Center For Mindfulness in Medicine, Health and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Robin completed a one year certification internship with Gayle Peterson, PhD. in 1990 and multiple week-long professional trainings with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli beginning in 1995.

Robin currently teaches Whole Birth Yoga at several local hospitals in Santa Cruz and in the San Francisco Bay Area and travels throughout the United States training other teachers to bring Whole Birth Yoga to their local communities. Robin and her husband, Saladin, live in Santa Cruz, California and are the lucky parents of Aaron, age eighteen.
