The Pregnancy Yoga classes were a great way to relax, get to know my changing body, spend time connecting with my bump and meeting other mums to be. Emma made the class relaxing and easy to follow for a yoga beginner like me. I enjoyed spending time talking to other mums in the class and getting tips for labour. I found I slept better, wasn't as sore in the final few weeks of pregnancy and I had met new people. I would definitely recommend these classes. Thanks Emma!
Absolutely loved Thursday evenings knowing yoga class was on! Such a lovely, relaxing class. Helped alot with leg cramps, back pain and heartburn! Emma is such a welcoming and friendly instructor and made our class into a little community for mummies who can all help each other and share our experiences. Can't recommend enough xx
