“Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life.” –B.K.S Iyengar
Congratulations on your pregnancy
Pre-requisite: No experience necessary to join Yoga for 2 sessions
These weekly feel good pregnancy yoga sessions are NOW RUNNING IN-PERSON ( alternatively VIA ZOOM DURING ANY CURRENT RESTRICTIONS ) and is for expectant mums to help you in being more comfortable during the emotional and physical changes that take place during the second and third trimester. Pregnancy yoga safely adapts classic poses which help prepare your body for labour and birth by helping to build strength, stamina and confidence in your ever changing body. You can join anytime from 14 weeks and practice right up to your baby’s birth. You also get to be part of a supportive network of pregnant women during this wonderfully exciting time.
Becoming a mother is a very personal journey. Using yoga during this sacred time can bring calmness, inner balance and empowerment, enabling you to step more confidently towards the life-changing experiences that motherhood brings. Pregnancy yoga adapts classic poses, safely strengthening, toning and stretching your ever-changing body. Using breath awareness, while you stretch, helps to nurture you and your baby. The union of breath and movement is one of yoga’s main tools of discovery, greatly improving your body’s ability to cope during labour and birth. The classes can help to create a heightened sense of well-being and contentment which extends to your baby, your partner and family. You will have the chance to meet other mums/mums-to-be in a friendly, supportive and fun environment, where we share knowledge and experiences.
Absolutely no previous yoga experience is required. You can join from the beginning of your second trimester (around 14 weeks) and are welcome to come to class until your baby is born. It’s lovely also to have post-birth Mums visit the class with their newborns and tell their birth story. Please don’t hesitate to message or call me with any questions you may have or to register your interest. Namaste, Dani x

My Mum & Baby class is run every Wednesday at 12 noon. You’re welcome to join from 6 weeks post birth, 10 weeks post section birth (after your GP check) right up to pre crawling. Please bring, for baby, a blanket and maybe a toy to chew and a mat & water for yourself. My classes are fun and friendly, with a mixture of mostly yoga for mummy and some baby yoga too. We go with the flow, as a rule, but I do try to gear the class towards mummies and their needs and always at a pace that suits both you and your baby.

Dani provides an upbeat but relaxed environment for baby & mummy
Being part of Dani’s Yoga for 2 class made a huge difference during my pregnancy
Feeling of inner peace and wellbeing
I'd recommend Yoga for 2 to anyone embarking on this amazing journey. Thanks Dani!! Jessica B
Brought together a group of mums to be who have become firm friends
Dani’s class always made me feel better even on the hardest days
Dani has built my confidence, I feel stronger, more knowledgeable and know that what I’ve learnt will help me through my labour
I received so much moral support from Dani and the other women in the class
I really looked forward to the Friday night class!
Dani was a huge help and not only did I learn exercises that I could do but I also learnt lots about pregnancy in general by speaking to Dani and the other mums-to-be. I really looked forward to the Friday night class as it was a great way to destress and wind down after a week at work. Now baby is here, I miss its much! Thank you Dani. ~ Katherine
