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, and for in person class where you’re bringing baby I suggest coming until baby is moving (otherwise you’ll spend a lot of time running around after your little one!). 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.
The 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 or at my private studio. More info here.
