    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.”

        about emilie

        Emilie has a warm and welcoming teaching style, fantastic depth of knowledge, a great sense of humour and a unique skillset that you simply won’t find with any other teacher. With over 12 years experience of yoga and dance teaching, she's a qualified doula and antenatal teacher. Her passion for learning about how we move (and are moved emotionally) brought her to train in Embodied Yoga Principles, delve into movement ecology in pregnancy and learn about taking a more trauma sensitive approach to teaching movement.
