  • The good stuff

    How can this pregnancy course help you?

    Stay strong

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

    Boost Immunity

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

    Soothe aches

    Using modern functional approaches to yoga we'll ease out aches in your back, pelvis and shoulders.

    Balance & posture

    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.

    Sleep well

    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.

    Mind & body

    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.

    Better flow

    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.

    Feel good

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

    Time for you

    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.

    Essential me time - pregnancy yoga classes with motherslove in Somerset


    "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. "

    Comprehensive pregnancy yoga and birth preparation classes with motherslove


    “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.”

    Classes to help you navigate through a calm pregnancy - motherslove pregnancy yoga with Emilie


    "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."

    Relaxing pregnancy exercise classes with Emilie Joy Rowell - motherslove


    “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.”

  • Book in for classes


    Session themes run in a loop, but it's fine to join at any stage - some people repeat the cycle more than once. Most people start in their second trimester and stay until baby arrives. If you feel ready sooner, that's fine. You can still come to class after your 'due date' provided there are no medical concerns.


    • Buy using the link for either 5 or 10 classes

    • Click on the code in your confirmation email

    • Complete the pre-course booking info

    • Select your course dates.


    - Sessions normally run term times only -


    Choose a block of 5 or 10 classes as a class pack. You have 3 months to use the 10 class pack and 6 weeks for the 5 class pack. Single sessions are available as a trial class or for those very close to meeting baby. Unused class credits can be transferred to postnatal packs or as a credit towards a massage or 1-2-1, if your baby arrives before you use them all.


    • It's best to book consecutive classes and adjust as/when needed or the space may get booked by someone else!

    • Please book in at least 2 hours before class start time if it's a late booking / catch up class

    • Cancellations with less than 12 hours notice will not be refunded - you need to log in to your account online to cancel a class.
