  • what people say about Emilie's classes:



    "Emilie is down to earth and friendly; she creates an inclusive and warm environment for the classes.

    I recommend these classes for the all-essential 'me' time during pregnancy as they've really helped me to breathe, stretch and properly listen to my body."



    "Emilie helped me feel more in control, less apprehensive and to know what to expect, so I could navigate a calmer way through - knowing how to listen and respond to my body.

    The whole experience was really lovely."

  • The good stuff

    How can this approach to movement in pregnancy help you?


    We explore the head to toe of the physical side of pregnancy, and also look at the emotional and social changes that happen during pregnancy.


    Yoga can help you adjust to the changes within the body, literally finding your centre and feeling your way through the changes in your body.


    Keep moving and gently strengthen legs, arms, wrists and core muscles every week to help you stay strong and prepare for birth.


    Relaxing and feeling more comfortable in your body can help with insomnia. As well as relaxing during sessions, exercising the body can help you sleep better at night.


    Emilie teaches specific movement for back pain, achy shoulders and to help balance your pelvis during pregnancy.


    Buidling body awareness can help you birth more easily.


    Breathing well and relaxing can benefit the immune system; helping you combat colds and illness.


    Breath can be a calming anchor in life and labour.


    Yoga improves circulation, helping the blood flow freely through the body and providing more oxygen to both mum and child. This may in turn help lower blood pressure and help you stay healthy.


    Classes promote the flow of oxytocin. It’s the ‘love hormone’ that helps you birth and breastfeed your baby. Getting into this zone regularly can be hugely beneficial to prepare for birth.


    Having space and time to adapt to pregnancy and new motherhood can be vital for peace of mind. In classes there’s time to chat, share experience and meet other mums.


    Simple everyday movements can help you work with your body and your baby to prepare for birth. Improve your chances of 'optimal positioning' using biomechanics for birth.

    what people say about Emilie's classes:



    “Thanks for your time and lovely attention.

    I really enjoyed the whole class, especially because it had a bit of everything, it wasn’t only yoga and exercise.
    After the class, I felt very relaxed all evening.”



    “The classes were comprehensive, covering all of the body from head-to-toe. There was good focus on breathing, relaxation and preparing for birth in various positions.

    I enjoyed the relaxation at the end and almost fell asleep! I felt very nurtured by Emilie and would be happy to recommend her to other expectant mums.”
