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.

Nurturing postnatal yoga class with the chance to incorporate the babies into the practice. Great opportunity to relax, recuperate, regain strength and meet other mums while your baby relaxes with you in a safe environment. Postnatal Yoga benefits include: Core stability (pelvic floor, abdominals, gluteus and back muscles); Realign and maintain suppleness in the spine; Tone deep muscles to ‘close the body’ after pregnancy and birth; Relieve stiffness; promote relaxation through breath’s expansion; detox the system improving blood flow; boost mood and confidence
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.
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

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!”

Guiding women through pregnancy, nurturing her and her baby, supporting women’s long term wellbeing through yoga, breathwork and massage. This is my life’s work!
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.
