Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy yoga with Rachel

I have been practicing yoga for 13 years and following the birth of our son, I trained with Uma Dinsmore Tuli at the yoga campus in London specifically to teach yoga to pregnant women. Whether you are new to yoga or have years of experience, I aim to meet your needs and guarantee safety, based on a solid understanding of the changes that occur in the body during pregnancy and the incredible experience that giving birth has the potential to be. 

Your specifically designed class will include a flow of yoga poses, meditation and relaxation. The focus will be on tuning into the body and your baby by connecting to the breath in order to maximise your health and well being throughout your pregnancy. I provide specific techniques for preparing you physically and mentally for the labour process based on my experience as a mother and as a midwife. 

Practicing yoga during pregnancy has shown to:

  • Relieve stress and anxiety
  • Soften and open the body
  • Build strength and support the lower back
  • Relax and promote restful sleep
  • Keep the body supple without straining
  • Boost energy
  • Can be used to relieve pain and discomfort in labour
  • Can relieve common minor ailments during pregnancy

Rachel is a gentle teacher who goes at your pace and adjusts the movements to suit your level of flexibility. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn how to control the busy mind.

I provide private, one to one classes in the comfort of your own home. I bring all the mats and props you might need to have a comfortable, relaxing experience. 

  • Classes last 1.5-2hrs and will be tailored to your needs. 
  • Cost: £50 per class (which you can split with a friend or small group if you have space)
  • 20% off if you book a block of 6 classes
  • My hope is that you will leave feeling calm and empowered to own your birth whichever path this may take and to trust your inner wisdom.
