    If you're postpartum and getting feelings of:

These monthly sessions are suitable for the month and years after childbirth when you are in need of greater nurture and connection. That might be during: • early days when there are many shifts to negotiate • developmental leaps • approaching the return to work or weaning. Babes-in-arms and mamas joining solo are equally welcome.


    What you get from these sessions :• Ideas for acheivable selfcare for new parents • Everyday movement to help release common tension areas • Self acceptance • Exploring the nature of mothering • Simple meditations • Mindful body awareness • Space to share and to listen

    Being a new parent is tiring emotionally and physically. While some classes focus on getting back to your former self, these sessions are designed to honour and recognise where you are.


    Join these sessions to learn safe and effective tools movement and meditation, to help you realign, reconnect and have the space you need to restore function, refill your cup and revitalise yourself.


    Partners sometimes meet for a cuppa in the cafe while their partners get a chance take some time for themselves.



    Meet yourself where you're at - sessions are gently guided with options so you can meet yourself wherever you're at. Setting yourself up postpartum with a good foundation can help you find your feet sooner.


    • Reconnecting with deep core muscles • Pelvic wellbeing • Achy shoulders • Back pain • Gentle strengthening movement




    The deep but subtle shifts that take place after birth can bring up issues around • Worries • Adjusting to new roles • Shifts in relationships • The invisible load • coping with sleeplessness



    As well as having time to move and reconnect, being with other people and sharing experiences is a vital part of being a human. Especially as a new parent when you're adapting to a whole world of change. Knowling that other folk are too - and learning how different people adapt can be really affirming.


    Unfortunately, some people experience tricky births. Having time and space to acknowledge this and to nurture yourself can be really helpful part of postpartum recovery. Sometimes it can feel like you need to push yourself to go back to 'normal', to return to a certain level of productivity, pace or shape.


    That's not what these sessions are about. Take time to nurture and reconnect.

    Emilie has a really calming presence and is great with both mums and babies. Highly recommended "

    Thank you so much!"


    - Suzie

    "It’s a really lovely class, yoga for the mums with lots of stretches, and she tailors the class to what we need, and the babies are with us and being entertained and engaged.


    Niamh loves it, she laughs and giggles her way through the class, I see it as our one on one time, I’d happily recommend it to others. "

    - Jenny

    “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.”
