Prema Yoga. Por amor ao Yoga.
Da gravidez ao sénior, passando pelo pós-parto, bebé, criança, adolescente, adulto, todos aqui podem seguir a sua prática e evoluí-la, seguros de que irão preservar vida fora uma saudável sintonia entre corpo e mente.
We work with women to empower you to:
- Find time to focus on and nurture yourself, at times when your needs are often the last to be met.
- Experience the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of a yoga practice, when your body may be in need of extra support.
- Use yoga practices to help heal your body, and ease the transition and journey, post birth into motherhood, and beyond.
We work with babies, children and teens (including children with special needs) to:
- Encourage whole brain development
- Help them find quiet and better access their own resources
- Encourage creativity
- Help them learn to listen to their body
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).
One-to-one yoga therapy: this is held face to face in my studio in Earlsfield, all details are on https://www.veradubrovina.com/yoga-therapy/ and booking as per above.

Through the use of gentle techniques babies and toddlers at Giggle’N’Splash take their first splashes towards becoming independent little swimmers. Water allows for the closeness of skin-to-skin contact , encouraging a strong bond between adult and child. All of this is carried out in a joyful and relaxed atmosphere under the careful guidance of our fully qualified Baby Aquatics Teachers! Lessons are progressive in order to gradually build skills and water confidence, however each child is unique and is encouraged to progress at their own pace.
I’m Julie Bickerton, founder of Nomad Therapy, here to support and nurture you throughout pregnancy, postnatally and through menopause.
My philosophy is to promote positive touch and accessible yoga. Providing a safe space where we can be honest and open about our experiences as women and building a community where friendships are made.
After my training as a baby massage instructor and having my son, my fascination with babies continued to grow and broaden.
Now in my midlife I am expanding my experience to support women through this period of their incredible lives.
I feel very lucky in my vocation. I love what I do and I continue to learn from every woman and baby that I meet.

Fun and stimulating “Yoga Inspired” activity for the child and their adult.
Adult and child participate with one another exploring Yoga shapes & moves, mindfulness & breath-work through fun themes, music, games and often relaxing storytelling at the end of the class. This is a great chance for both the adult and the child to do a little exercise as well as discover new ways to unwind together.

These pre-natal yoga classes are perfect for ‘mums-to-be’ from 12 weeks onwards.

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.
