I qualified as a Yoga Teacher in 2014, after training at the amazing Whitespace Yoga Studio in Milton Keynes. Yoga has always been my passion and favourite hobby - ever since Ginger Spice inspired me with her Yoga DVD back in the 90s (thank you, Geri)!
After my initial yoga teacher training, I always felt drawn to teach pregnancy yoga, being fascinated by what the female body is capable of during pregnancy and child birth, so I went on to specialise and qualify in pregnancy yoga in 2016. Shortly after qualifying, I was over-the-moon to find out that I was expecting my first baby! I continued to teach pregnancy yoga until I was 6 months pregnant, and it was wonderful being on the same journey as my students. I continued to practise pregnancy yoga throughout my pregnancy, which I found so beneficial as it created a special time for me to relax, connect with my baby and prepare my body for childbirth.
My little boy, Freddie, was born in July 2018 and during my maternity leave I felt really inspired to train as a baby massage and baby yoga teacher because I want to continue to support the mums who come to my pregnancy yoga classes once their babies arrive. I had experienced first hand the amazing benefits of baby massage and baby yoga from practising with Freddie, and want to share the benefits with other parents. I also loved attending these classes with Freddie, as being someone who likes some structure and routine, the classes helped to shape my weeks on maternity leave and I loved getting out the house to meet other mums and babies. I have made some friends for life from these classes and I’m a big believer that a support network of other parents is very important - I couldn’t have survived this year without my great friends going through the same experiences. I hope to create a sense of support, friendship and community in my classes.
I am now a proud mum of two! Following the arrival of my daughter, Edie, in April 2020 I have taught pregnancy yoga online during the Covid-19 pandemic and have loved to continue to connect mums during this time. I also got over my camera nerves during this time, and have started to record postnatal yoga classes for busy mums to practise in their own time to help them relax. In January 2022 I qualified as an Antenatal Educator, to continue to enrich my classes with information for mums-to-be. I will be launching in-person Antenatal Education + Pregnancy yoga classes in Milton Keynes from April!
