As a mother of four children, I understand what a deeply affecting time pregnancy is for women. Life is change and never is this more evident than during the forty weeks in which a new life begins, develops and is born into the world. Yoga can offer profound benefits to both you and your baby. I completed the British Wheel of Yoga Pregnancy Yoga Module with Judy Cameron in 2013 and to date have taught over 150 pregnant women. It's an incredible privilege to support women through their pregnancy and to meet them and their babies after birth. I also teach many of 'my' mums in postnatal yoga and take great pleasure in sharing their transition to motherhood. Many of the women I have taught, have come back to me for their second or third pregnancy! I will never, ever become immune to the miracle of birth and new life!
