Yoga for Pregnancy

My pregnancy classes aim to give you time to relax, focus on your baby and think about your wishes for the birth. Women often report reduced aches and pains and better quality of sleep as well as improved posture and body awareness and more confidence with positions and breathing for labour.

Classes are on Tuesday evenings in Stroud and Thursday evenings in Nailsworth. 

Couples’ Yoga Birth Workshops

A 90 minute informative and interactive session for pregnant women and birth partners (your partner or mum, sister, doula etc) to practise positions, breathing, massage and relaxation techniques. The workshop will build confidence in your ability to cope with labour together at home or in hospital.

Please check my bookings site here for workshop dates and availability.

Baby Yoga

Baby Yoga is suitable for women from six weeks postnatal, up until your baby is mobile. It gives you the chance to stretch and relax whilst spending some quality time with your baby, and exercising them gently too. The class is designed to be enjoyable for both mum and baby, and will help to ease you back into exercise whilst also helping your baby develop their reflexes and motor skills; all in the company of other new mums and babies. The non-birth parent or other carer is welcome to attend too. Classes are on Monday mornings in Stroud; Tuesdays in Nailsworth.

Book here for Stroud Yoga Space or Warrior & Wild (Nailsworth) classes.
