Είμαιι μαία, εκπαιδευτικός, διεθνώς πιστοποιημένη Σύμβουλος Γαλουχίας IBCLC και πιστοποιημένη Birthlight™ Yoga for Maternity teacher.
Έχοντας ολοκληρώσει κύκλους σπουδών στη μαιευτική και στον ανώδυνο τοκετό και εργαζόμενη ως εκπαιδευτικός, στα χρόνια που ακολούθησαν έγινα μητέρα πέντε παιδιών. Οι εμπειρίες που βίωσα η ίδια με τον θηλασμό των 5 παιδιών μου, με ενέπνευσαν να διευρύνω περισσότερο τις γνώσεις μου και την εξειδίκευσή μου για να βοηθήσει και άλλες μαμάδες που ήθελαν να θηλάσουν τα μωρά τους. Έτσι, μετεκπαιδεύθηκα και ως Σύμβουλος Θηλασμού IBCLC και στην περιγεννητική γιόγκα Birthlight™ Yoga for Maternity. Και αργότερα, ένα ακόμη όνειρό μου πήρε μορφή, με τη συνδημιουργία του Κύκλου.
Θα με βρεις στον Κύκλο να παρέχω την υποστήριξή μου με σεμινάρια, ομιλίες και workshops ως Σύμβουλος Θηλασμού σε κάθε στάδιο της μητρότητας, από την εγκυμοσύνη, τον τοκετό, τον θηλασμό, τη σύνδεση της Γυναίκας με το σώμα της και το παιδί της και μέσω μαθημάτων prenatal-postnatal yoga.
Ταυτόχρονα, μπορείς να επικοινωνήσεις μαζί μου και να με επιλέξεις για σύντροφο υποστήριξης σε όλο το ταξίδι της μητρότητας, για μια πολύπλευρη υποστήριξη με ατομικές συνεδρίες, όπου κι αν ζεις.
I teach antenatal mindfulness and antenatal yoga both privately and with my local NHS Trust. Whatever your interest, please get in touch to find out more about group courses or private classes. I look forward to hearing from you.
I run Pregnancy and Mum & Baby Yoga classes in Bracknell, Berkshire. As well as Well Woman Yoga classes. Classes are small and friendly, no experience of yoga is required.
Pregnancy Yoga is suitable from 14 weeks onwards and helps promote a comfortable pregnancy. Classes work wonders to prepare the body and mind for the birth and are a great way to meet other Mums.
Mum & Baby Yoga is suitable from 6 weeks after the birth up until baby is crawling. We focus on stabilising the core and reconnecting with the pelvic floor as well as easing out postnatal aches and pains. Baby Yoga is included as well as mutually beneficial movements. Classes are fun and playful in a relaxed environment.
Well Woman Yoga focuses on nurturing yoga that promotes core and pelvic floor health. This is a fun relaxed class.
Navigation, Intuition and Instinct
… knowing what your options are and how to navigate the pathway is so important … even the suggestion of booking in a sweep starts that ripple off …. go with your intuition and instincts – what feels right for you … navigate, negotiate and have those sensible conversations that support you and your baby so that you get the most out of the journey into motherhood and the best start.
If you are looking for a class that supports you in every way possible then please do connect … spaces available and it’s so much more than a pregnancy yoga class in the traditional sense. A Ripple Effect class is a “one-stop” shop … you get so much in terms of antenatal education, an amazing tool box for pregnancy, labour, postpartum and your everyday life which has yoga, relaxation techniques, breath work, “hypnobirthing” techniques (supporting those who have been to other classes or accessed online platforms), rebozo and self care … as well as meeting other fab ladies who are also on this journey to motherhood. They are a treat and certainly not to be missed. Add in the gorgeous bespoke Space you have a recipe that will support you all the way …
A little about me … I am a gentle soul … I pride myself on the classes I offer and the amazing work that has been shared into the community over the last 18 years … I am sure that as you journey deeper into the classes available in the area you will no doubt be seated next to someone who has been along to a Ripple class and believes that everyone needs a “Claire” … 1200 babies and families to date and 2 of my own doesn’t mean I am an expert but I am hoping I can help you shed some light to support you with your little one.
Look forward to connecting with you.
