Pre Natal Yoga
These pre-natal yoga classes are perfect for ‘mums-to-be’ from 12 weeks onwards.
The gentle yet effective approach of these classes aims to internalise the practices and techniques in order to build a body memory that can be called upon with ease, instinctively in daily life, during labour and beyond.
Pregnancy yoga benefits include:
Increase awareness in body, breath and postural changes.
Expanding breathing capabilities in order to breathe for two, assist during labour and birth.
Pelvic awareness (unfold range of movements and as foundational support for the body).
Tone and release pelvic floor muscles in preparation for labour and beyond.
Boost energy and reduce fatigue.
Increase resilience and ease tensions in both body and mind.
Yoga for common pregnancy issues: pelvic girdle pain, encouraging baby into optimal birthing position, better sleep, etc.
Restorative yoga for mums to be & yoga nidra
Postnatal Yoga (without Baby)
Nurturing Gentle Yoga class for Mothers. From 12 weeks onwards and up to any time postpartum.
Open to anyone who’d like to reconnect to body, mind and with other local Mothers.
For those interested in Mum and Baby Yoga (Postnatal with Baby) we are resuming classes in September 2021.
Postnatal Yoga with Baby
Nurturing class for you and your baby. Take some time out to
relax, recuperate, re-strength and meet other mums while your

I am a yoga teacher with over 14 years of teaching experiencing, including many years of teaching pre-and post-natal yoga in East London. I have helped many hundreds of women to feel more comfortable, confident and relaxed during their pregnancies and births, and have welcomed back many of them on the other side with their babies – which is always such a joy.
In the words of one of my recent students:
“I would definitely recommend Sarah’s pregnancy yoga classes! They have been a real help to stay healthy and well during pregnancy, both mentally and physically. The class is tailored to pregnant mums, keeping our bodies fit during pregnancy, but Sarah also gives us very helpful tips about positions and breathing during childbirth. She clearly knows what she is talking about and she always takes her time for any concerns or questions. It never feels like she is on a schedule. The classes are more than just yoga. Each session starts with checking in on each other. It’s very helpful to share pregnancy concerns with other ladies going through the same thing. The community of pregnant ladies that we have built in Sarah’s classes is such a wonderful support. I can’t wait to join the post-natal classes with our babies later on!”

Baby yoga is great for your baby’s physical, neurological and social development. We gently assist their movement to harness their natural reflexes and curiosity, we also include some baby massage. Baby yoga is great for soothing babies, releasing frustration and helping with mood and sleep.
Part of the class will be postnatal yoga (adapted for dads/carers). We strengthen pelvic floor and gently build core strength, release tight muscles and learn simple breathing practices for relaxation.
It’s a lovely way to bond and move together with your baby at the same time as meeting local mums / parents.
If you find you want to rest or feed for most of the class that is absolutely welcome.
“My baby loves Georgia’s classes – even on days when she is overtired, as soon as the class starts she is all smiles and giggles. The yoga classes are definitely her happy place!” – Jennie
Vera has been practicing yoga since 1992 and teaching from 2004. She holds teaching diplomas from British Wheel of Yoga, Birthlight, Yoga Therapy Diploma (YC) and children teaching training from Special Yoga Centre. Vera has extensive training in meditation and mindfulness practices. She also trained as a Doula with Dr Michel Odent.
Vera’s primary focus now is on developing holistic therapeutic approach that supports each woman on her unique journey (issues with female health, postnatal recovery, pregnancy, fertility, menopause) with the use of yoga and other complimentary practices that she picked up along the way.
Vera teaches regular group classes on Mondays in online format (well-woman yoga, postpartum, fertility and pregnancy) as well as having 1-2-1 yoga therapy with clients (both online and face to face in her clinic) who require a developed of more specific programme that can address their specific concerns.
Vera has been practicing yoga since 1992 and teaching from 2004 (holding teaching diplomas across number of disciplines from BWY, Birthlight, Yoga Therapy and Children Yoga). Vera has extensive training in meditation and mindfulness practices and has been supporting women as a birth and postpartum Doula since 2008.
Among her over 2000 hours of training in many traditions of yoga, yoga therapy and doula supporting work, Vera specifically focused on training in yoga nidra, hypnosis and restorative yoga as she feels that without restorative practice and ability to enjoy and come to terms with the stillness, deep transformation is difficult, especially in the current fast-paced environment and this stillness allows our bodies to restore health in a holistic way.
She brings this restorative approach to all therapeutic work she does with focus on provision of support covering all aspects of female lifecycle (from fertility issue through pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond).
Particulars: Vera’s Birthlight classes cover well-woman, fertility, pregnancy and postpartum milestones in female life. They are held in small class environment and whilst largely based on Birthlight curriculum also include all the knowledge that Vera has gained in supporting these stages through her yoga therapy and doula work.
Group classes: The classes take place on Mondays, online format and are normally booked in blocks of 5. All details are on https://www.veradubrovina.com/events-booking/. To book your place please send Vera an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Helen is a Birthlight Baby Yoga and Toddler Yoga teacher. She is also a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist.
Helen trained with The International Association of Infant Massage IAIM in 2011 having enjoyed attending Baby Massage classes with her son. In 2017 she completed Baby Yoga training with Birthlight. In Baby Yoga classes parents can continue to massage their babies and learn additional moves to support their babies co-ordination, strength and movement. The classes also provide new parents with an opportunity to talk to each other and to find ways to help them to relax and heal postnatally. She runs regular courses in Beckenham and private classes for groups of parents in their own home.
Using her knowledge and experience as a qualified Speech and Language Therapist Helen also runs baby talk classes for babies aged 6-12 months.
In 2020 Helen trained to teach Toddler Yoga with Birthlight, as she wanted to expand this valuable work with babies to parents and young children. Her Toddler Yoga classes support children’s communication skills through movement. The use of song and breath provides parents with ways to support their child’s emotional regulation.
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’m Charly, an experienced IAIM Certified Baby Massage instructor, Leicester Mammas Breastfeeding Peer Support and a Birthlight Baby Yoga instructor.
I hold five session courses in Syston, as well as taster sessions through the year. Classes are around one and a half hours long, they include refreshments and social time too. When signed up to a course you are added to a WhatsApp group to support you, and allow you to continue conversations with your peer in class.
Sessions are welcoming, non-judgemental and a relaxed environment is created in all sessions.
please note that courses are term time only. It is asked that alternative childcare is arranged for siblings to allow you to bond with your newborn.
