My name is Carla and I am a fully qualified Birthlight and STA infant aquatics teacher. In 2005, I trained with a swim school in Cambridge which was ran by Sally Lomas and Amanda Gawthrope. I also worked at Birthlight’s headquarters in admin for a while too. Having taught babies to swim over many years, including my own daughter, I have become increasingly aware of the benefits for newborn babies of learning water confidence from a very young age and the parent and baby bonding that results from being in water. Our aim is to bring parent and baby together through our swim splash classes in a safe, friendly and fun environment that best suits the needs of everyone involved.
I am a Birthlight Tutor & teacher in Aqua Natal Yoga and Baby Swim. Hatha Yoga teacher & advanced studies of over 20 years, having tutored for Birthlight in UK, China and Russia. Originally from Liverpool, I now live in Northern Ireland and am a keen sea swimmer.
Studio and Zoom classes include Pregnancy and Post Natal classes for NHS Maternity units, Council facilities and Yoga Quarter Belfast. In addition, I deliver Pre Natal Couples Yoga, Parent and Baby Yoga and Toddler Yoga.
In water classes include: “Baby Bubbles” parent and baby swim, baby nurture up to adult swimming and Pre & Post Aqua Natal.
