This class is a playful yoga class and features some classic yoga sequences (like sun salutations) as well as different movements to start to explore mobility, stretch and strengthening in a way that works for your body.
This is a more active class but I will always offer several options so you can dial the intensity up or down to suit what you need on the day.
This class experiments with new ways of moving to find strength and mobility in the body. It takes inspiration not just from yoga but calisthenics and natural movement practices.
A slower paced, restoring and nourishing class which features breath and movement designed to challenge but relax you. Very beginner friendly! Some moving and some resting. Develop a deep connection with the body, work into flexibility, set yourself up for the week ahead.
Suitable from 6-8 weeks after baby is born, right up until whenever you like (I still do postnatal yoga 3 years after my son was born!) This class is about movements that are great for a postnatal body – focussing on our core, pelvic floor, restabilising around the middle, building strength, unsticking our shoulders…and we’re not running a marathon or doing a HIIT class so there will be loads of relaxation, meditation and time to feel good about yourself too.
I offer two classes – the daytime in-person class is a bring your baby session, and the evening class is online so baby can be with you or possibly in bed. Both classes are yoga for you – baby isn’t left out, but it’s not a baby yoga class. They’re very informal and we have a good chat about the joys and challenges of parenting.
In my classes I’ll help you connect to your body and your baby, learn breathing techniques which can help you during birth, and relax with guided meditations. The postures and exercises that you will learn will support you in pregnancy and beyond. My classes are evidence-based and include lots of modifications to support your body as it changes.
I’ve written a bit more about the specific things that yoga in pregnancy can do for you and what the evidence says on my blog.
I also offer private 1:1 sessions or group sessions, for all types of yoga, currently online. More info here.
