Réka is a perinatal consultant with over two decades of experience in childbirth education, pregnancy yoga, birth attendance as a doula, and counselling. She offers prenatal consultations. Somatic Focusing for Birth is to help stay aware, focused, present and at ease during this special time, and later on in labour so that you can draw on your natural instincts easily and trust your inner resources.
Réka started practicing yoga at the age of 16 in the Maheshwarananda tradition. After her PhD studies at Oxford University and the birth of her 3 children she initially trained with Dr. Francoise Freedman in 2003 (level 1, London) then in 2005 (level 2, Budapest). Since 2003 Réka has taught pregnancy yoga continuously. In these 20 years, working with literally thousands of expectant mums, she has been passionate about helping them find trust, balance and love in their bodies – especially during pregnancy, at birth and in the postnatal period.
She lives in Chipping Norton, close to Oxford.
I teach WellWoman yoga on line via Zoom to small groups. I also plan to teach a live class at The Self Centre in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk http://www.the-self-centre.co.uk when Covid regulations make this viable, but will also continue with the online group for the foreseeable future. I also teach general Hatha Yoga classes and Yoga for those Living with Cancer at The Self Centre.
My passion is the miracle of the human body, this extraordinary vehicle that allows us to live in this wonderful, if challenging, world. Yoga gives us powerful tools to find fulfilment and tranquility during the journey of our lives. Sharing the gift of yoga is the best job in the world.
