    Pregnancy is a time of massive change, adapting to greater demands on your body as you grow a whole new person, plus the rollercoaster of emotions that come along the way. Most of us combine managing all that with keeping on top of career, learning all about birth, shifting dynamics with friendships or family, oh and probably moving house and/or doing a ton of building/decorating work.

    (and breathe)


    You are not alone in feeling confused, overwhelmed and exhausted. We are here to help...

    A whole self approach

    Taking time out to pause and feel into your body is vital in pregnancy; during this part of your life you're more sensitive emotionally and physically. Being more aware of sensations, changes and feelings can help you use adapt more easily.

    Each class has an element of guided relaxation as well as cues to help you notice sensation throughout the class.

    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 10 years experience of yoga and dance teaching, she's also trained as a 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.


  • What's included?

    How can this course help you?

    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.

    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.

    Stay strong

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

    Sleep better

    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.

    Soothe aches

    Common pain areas such as hip and pelvic soreness, lower back pain and tense shoulders can be gently stretched and relief found.

    Combat colds

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

    Better flow

    Movement improves circulation, helping the blood flow freely through the body delivering more oxygen to both mum and baby. 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.
