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 am passionate about women’s health, from conception, birth to menopause and beyond. The yoga classes I offer to women provide them with invaluable tools to help transform, empower and heal their body’s and minds in a gentle but effective way. I qualified in Birthlight Pre-Natal Yoga in 2007, and Post-Natal Yoga in 2008, and Well Woman Yoga 2020.
I am currently offering on-line group classes via Zoom and face-to-face 1-2-1’s.

I joined the Birthlight team of teachers after completing my Pre-natal Yoga Diploma in 2006. I then went onto complete my Baby Yoga Diploma and Wellwoman Yoga Diploma. I have also completed a Birth Preparation Course. I have taught a Birthlight CPD on Prenatal Yoga.
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.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have about Baby Massage or Baby Yoga, via my email address firstname.lastname@example.org but I am not currently running classes as I am working full time in a local school.
I now run online classes for baby yoga,(Tuesday am) perinatal yoga( Tuesday evening) and adult yoga(Monday and Thursday evenings)
Free trial class for each of these.
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.
My name is Karen Wilson and I have been studying and practising yoga for over 10 years here and in America.
My training is recognised by the British Wheel of Yoga, Yoga Alliance and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs). I am also fully insured.
My classes incorporate the philosophy of hatha yoga with the asana (postural work) and prananyama (breath control). I teach mixed ability classes, private on-to-one yoga, pregnancy, postnatal, baby yoga and baby massage. (Please check out these pages for more details.)
I started practising in Chicago as a means of meeting people whilst I was on assignment with my job. On my return to the UK I continued my practice, attending various classes whilst continuing my corporate job. In 2009 I decided to re-order my life and combine my passion for yoga with the desire for a ‘career’. I left my 9-5 job and started my teaching diploma. I started teaching my first class a year into my course – 10 years on and I haven’t looked back once!
I have been undertaking professional development in yoga for cancer (those undergoing treatment, post surgery and carer support), long covid and chronic fatigue syndrome as well as additional studies in menstrual cycle awareness and knee rehabilitation.
The last 10 years has seen a lot of change through my life, relocations, job changes, studying, pregnancy, motherhood and even the way in which I practise yoga. However yoga has been with me throughout both on and off the mat regardless of how small a time I can manage to fit in. The yoga philosophy has helped me come to understand and manage these changes and the time of my mat has helped me to hold onto something concrete whilst also understanding that even my yoga practise has to adapt with life.
Based in Wiltshire, I am currently running Well Woman Yoga online via Zoom, Postnatal Yoga for Mothers & Babies face to face in the Bromham Social Centre (socially distanced), Pregnancy/Perinatal Yoga in the White Horse Yoga Studio in Devizes with small groups face to face (as well as women who join online via Zoom) and Chair Yoga which is for anyone who has mobility/health issues, online via Zoom. All classes are carefully planned around the needs of the group with a focus on Pranayama (breathing practices), gentle yoga asanas (postures) and relaxation. My aim is to create a calm and nurturing environment for everyone who attends, giving each person the time and space to take what they need from the session.
My tried and tested live and interactive sessions whether online or in-person are great for creating a lasting bond, stimulating and supporting a baby’s physical, emotional and social development as well as helping to relieve colic, sleeping difficulties, constipation, teething and other ailments.
My baby massage & yoga courses are suitable for all parents and babies, I demonstrate on a doll and only parents massage their baby and you do not need to come from a yoga background.
Baby Massage & Yoga are a perfect pair, beautiful and loving ways to connect & soothe your baby and has fantastic health benefits.
As well as open group sessions, I also offer one to one session do get in touch if I can be of service to you.

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 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 (email@example.com).
