Take some time out for you to stretch, relax and connect with your baby as well as meet other Mamas on this beautiful journey.
Whether it's your first or your fifth baby yoga can benefit you during your pregnancy, birth and beyond.
"Giving birth should be your greatest achievement,
not your greatest fear."Jane Weideman
I originally completed my Pregnancy Yoga training with CamYOGA in 2013 but it's only really since having my own babies (first in May 2017, second in February 2019 and third in January 2021) I've felt such a passion for sharing pregnancy yoga techniques with Mamas to be.
After personally experiencing the deep connection between yoga and pregnancy, especially during birth and also postnatally, I'm so happy to offer you the tools that will help guide you through this special time with positivity, breath, mantras and movement.
This weekly class is not just a place for the physical practice of yoga but also a way to find that deeper connection with your body and your baby as well as establish a feeling of community within the group as we support each other week to week with an open minded, nurturing space and an opportunity to share as little or as much as you like. So important especially as we navigate pregnancy and motherhood amongst the pandemic times.
You must be a minimum of 14 weeks pregnant to start, please get in touch to book your space.
I can't wait to meet you and your bump!

Mama & Bubba Yoga
My weekly Postnatal Yoga class is for both you as a Mama and for your little bub to enjoy together.
Again after my own experience with my little ones and seeing the incredible connection and experience it provides for both Mama & Bub I just feel so passionate about sharing this practise with you.
We generally start each session by arriving on the mat with some deep breathing and a welcome song for the babies.
Depending on how babies are we start with some yoga moves for them and some more songs and then we move into some yoga for Mamas including gentle strengthening and pelvic floor awareness...babies practice with us so no need to worry if your baby doesn't like to be put down for long...because most don't! Then we finish with some more moves for baby, some massage and then a joint relaxation (and relaxing post baby is slightly different to relaxing pre baby- which I'm sure you've realised!)
You can start any time after the 6/8 week check up and go up to around crawling/walking stage.
This class is a relaxed, openminded , safe space for you and your bub to spend time together moving and connecting. You can feed/change/cuddle your baby as much as you need throughout the class and there is never any pressure to do everything- just do as much or as little as you like.
I try to organise tea + cake once a month after class so we all catch up properly and we have been known to go for a carvery at The Williams Arms for lunch after class every now and again or coffee at The Quay Cafe when its dry enough for a walk.
I like to think this group is more than just another class but also a little community for Mamas to support each other through this incredibly amazing but also challenging time.
Please get in touch if you'd like to join us.
