I have been teaching the antenatal classes for 9 years now and my current number of yoga babies is standing at nearly 300! My classes are long established in the Bromsgrove area and are fully supported by the local midwives.

I have had a healthy mix of normal and twin pregnancies over the years and the rate of caesarean births considerable lower than the national average. Practicing yoga during pregnancy does not mean that you will have a pain free birth, but you are more likely to have a very natural delivery with less intervention.

A very big part of the class is about communication, the conversations are always amazing and we have a lot of fun. I have felt this to be an integral part of the class as it supports everyone, friendships are formed and strong bonds are made. This allows the spirit of yoga to continue after the class and the support network for new Mum’s is invaluable.

“To have absolute inner peace in the face of life’s outer agitations, is the meaning of divine poise”.

BIRTH PREPARATION WITH BIRTH PARTNER

 This is a session in the comfort of your own home with your birth partner, consisting of all the movements and breathing techniques you will use during labour and birth.   Your birth partner will then be able to assist you during your labour, and encourage you to relax, move and breathe. Invaluable for new parents to be!

If you would like to arrange a one to one birth preparation session please contact me for more details.

ANTENATAL ONE-TO ONE SESSION

If you prefer to practice at home, a one-to-one session is a great way to discover the joys of a yoga practice in pregnancy. I will guide you through a practice designed to suit your needs and the stage of pregnancy you are at; using movement and breath awareness to create flexibility, openness, strengthen key areas, discover how to relax and release during labour. As a one-to-one student you learn quickly, so this is ideal if you want to prepare before joining a regular class, or as a one off before birth.

 

POSTNATAL WORKSHOP
These workshop sessions consist of 2 hours of practice with specially designed exercises to bring awareness back to your post baby body. The emphasis is on regaining strength and flexibility in key areas; observing and learning to accept where you are, deep breathing exercises for harmonizing and balancing, and of course, relaxation.

The workshop is suitable for students after the 6-week check up (normal delivery) or 12 weeks for
C-section.

Postnatal workshops cost £20 and include refreshments and cakes. Please contact me (link to form) for details of the upcoming postnatal workshop sessions.
