Happy New Year
Yoga: The Sunday sessions is my weekly open class. Suitable for anyone (over the age of 16) who wants to get peaceful, feel great in their body , and start their week on a high 🙂 Includes slower, restorative practices for quieting the mind and awakening deeper wisdom, as well as stronger, flowing yoga which will raise your heart rate and strengthen you from within. Balances and inversions are worked towards in a way that starts where you are at but challenges you to explore what your body can do! Anyone can benefit from these postures with the right guidance and props!
Drop in rate £9. Prebooked block rate £7.50.

Yoga is the perfect companion on the journey of Mothering! Befriending your breath means you will have the best tool for calming yourself and your baby , and delighting them too! any time you need it! Feeling nourished, more open, and stronger from within, will help you enjoy what can be a tiring and challenging year! Mums say they leave feeling great and the class is the highlight of their week!
Doing baby yoga not only lays the foundations for babies’ healthy physical and emotional development; it enhances life with your baby by teaching you techniques for safe, relaxed holding and picking up, soothing a crying baby, being playful together and relaxing together. Babies love yoga! They often seem to ‘ open out’ as they do their yoga, and it can really help to reduce frustration when they are trying to roll, sit, crawl, slide and generally wriggle around! Yoga is gentle, respectful, loving and nurturing touch: we start with massage, songs and rhymes to engage them , and move on to fun stretches, balances, inversions and sequences that will delight them! Then they get to have a lovely cuddle on you as we do a walking relaxation and , usually, finish off lying down or sitting quietly while you share your calm!
I have been using baby yoga techniques and exercises with my Tots since they were tiny, and have been teaching Birthlight baby yoga since Jan 2011. I love it and i love sharing it!
You dont need any yoga experience, you dont need to be bendy! Equally, if you have done yoga before it will give you some ideas for reintroducing it into your life as a Mum (:
