Jessica Zijlema

Leuk om (digitaal) kennis te maken! Mijn naam is Jessica Zijlema. Ik woon samen met mijn man Sander en onze dochter Sarah in Tiel. Vanuit mijn bedrijf Essential Health bied ik in de Betuwe zwangerschapsyoga, postnatale yoga en mama & baby lessen aan, zowel in groepsverband als individueel.

Sinds 2007 werk ik al als Yoga- en Pilatesdocent en Masseur. Tijdens mijn zwangerschap en bevalling heb ik enorm veel gehad aan de ontspannings- beweeg- en ademhalingstechnieken die ik daaruit kende, en ik had daardoor een prachtige, bijzondere en snelle bevalling. Dit wilde ik graag delen met andere (aanstaande) mama’s! Daarom ben ik na de geboorte van onze dochter gestart met het geven van zwangerschapsyoga lessen en zwangerschapsmassages.Toen een paar jaar later HypnoBirthing op mijn pad kwam, was de cirkel voor mij echt rond.

Het is zo mooi om te zien hoe ontspanning en het vertrouwen in je lichaam je helpt tijdens de geboorte van je kindje, waardoor de bevalling voorspoediger en comfortabeler verloopt. En ik vind het bijzonder dat ik jou als aanstaande ouder de tools mag aanbieden om met vertrouwen en vanuit je eigen kracht je voor te bereiden op een prachtige, ontspannen en mooie komst van je kindje!

Naast yoga kun je bij mij  in de studio terecht voor nog veel meer als (aanstaande) ouder, ook samen met je baby of kind:

  • ZwangerschapsYoga
  • ZwangerschapsPilates
  • ZwangerschapsMassage
  • Cursus Voorbereiden op de Bevalling
  • Postnatale Yoga
  • Mama & Baby Yoga en -Pilates
  • Babymassage
  • Workshops Baby- & Kindergebaren
  • Yoga met je Kind
  • Moxa therapie bij stuitligging

Regio: Tiel, Buren en Geldermalsen (De Betuwe, Gelderland).
Private classes can also be taught in English


I run Yoga classes, Pre- and Postnatal Yoga classes and now Birthlight Baby Yoga classes. For more information and to sign up for a class visit my website.


I have taught pregnancy yoga continuously since I trained with Dr. Francoise Freedman in 2003 and 2005, both in London (level 1), and in Budapest (level 2). In the past 18 years, working with literally thousands of expectant mums, I’ve been passionate about helping them find trust, balance and love in their bodies – especially during pregnancy, at birth and in the postnatal period.

I am also a qualified doula, perinatal consultant, birth class educator, certified to teach yoga and ayurveda. I’ve taught one of the most popular birth preparation classes (in Hungary), and have attended births as a doula both at home and in hospitals. In the meantime, I’ve also taught womb-centred (well-woman) yoga and ayurveda practices for women of all ages.

I have now returned to the UK to continue teaching here, in Chipping Norton, close to Oxford.

I have been teaching pregnancy/postnatal yoga and childbirth education since 1991 and my classes reflect the wealth of experience I have, providing practical advice and encouragement to women throughout their pregnancies and as new mothers.
I am a Yoga and Pre-natal teacher, registered with Birthlight, YogaBirth, the Active Birth Centre and the British Wheel of Yoga. I also teach Hypnobirthing.

My focus is supporting women to have a joyful, empowered birth, whatever the kind of birth they choose.

I currently teach Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth Preparation, Hypnobirthing and Post-Natal classes near Queen’s Park/Kensal Rise . Classes via Zoom or 1-2-1.


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. I started my Well Woman training in 2019 & 2020 and am currently awaiting my certificate.

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.
