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.
I’m Charly, an experienced IAIM Certified Baby Massage instructor, Leicester Mammas Breastfeeding Peer Support and a Birthlight Baby Yoga instructor.
I hold five session courses in Syston, as well as taster sessions through the year. Classes are around one and a half hours long, they include refreshments and social time too. When signed up to a course you are added to a WhatsApp group to support you, and allow you to continue conversations with your peer in class.
Sessions are welcoming, non-judgemental and a relaxed environment is created in all sessions.
please note that courses are term time only. It is asked that alternative childcare is arranged for siblings to allow you to bond with your newborn.
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.
My name is Carla and I am a fully qualified Birthlight and STA infant aquatics teacher. In 2005, I trained with a swim school in Cambridge which was ran by Sally Lomas and Amanda Gawthrope. I also worked at Birthlight’s headquarters in admin for a while too. Having taught babies to swim over many years, including my own daughter, I have become increasingly aware of the benefits for newborn babies of learning water confidence from a very young age and the parent and baby bonding that results from being in water. Our aim is to bring parent and baby together through our swim splash classes in a safe, friendly and fun environment that best suits the needs of everyone involved.

I am an aromatherapist and qualified children’s nurse. I have been privileged to teach parent and baby classes for the last 16 years and experience the joy that yoga can bring, but am now stepping back from teaching regular classes to take semi-retirement. It was through Birthlight I first discovered yoga which transformed my life and I continue to practice regularly. I am available for teaching individual one to one or small, occasional classes by request.
Friendly, relaxing small group classes suitable from 12 weeks postpartum.
Movement and relaxation for parent and baby. Stretches specially designed to aid babies developing mobility and co-ordination and to support Mums post-natal recovery and well being.

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.

And also Mother and Baby yoga sessions from 6 weeks post.
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
