My yoga classes follow the principle that breathing is the key to birth. Throughout my sessions, I encourage women to become familiar with the natural rhythm of their breath, a necessity for more manageable childbirth.
I keep the classes small, so I can give each expectant mother the attention she deserves, and I include time at the end for a chat. I find the women who attend use this valuable time to talk through how their week has been and any pregnancy highs or lows they might be experiencing. Women find it incredibly useful to share experiences, exchange coping strategies and to start thinking about their different options around birth. Many of the mothers form strong bonds and lasting friendships from this weekly meet up.
My classes are designed for all, whether you’re a seasoned yogi or have never done it before, and benefit every type of birth. The yoga classes are not exclusive to those doing my hypnobirthing classes, but they do complement each other very well.

Pregnancy yoga is a fantastic way to engage with your pregnant body. It can calm the mind; help to remove fear about birth and it permits you to leave behind the stresses of busy city life to focus on you and your baby.
The classes are a mixture of breath work, calming sequences to help soften and open and more energising postures to help strengthen the body. Throughout my sessions, women learn to connect their breath to their body, which is not only relaxing but prepares for effective breathing during labour. All of which, enables a woman to trust in her body’s power and innate ability to give birth.
