Why mothers love motherslove:
"I love the Baby & Me yoga classes as it gives me a little time each week to reconnect to my body and breathing.
Emilie has a really calming presence and is great with both mums and babies.
Highly recommended "
"I just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterdays session, it was magical and just what me and baby needed.
Thank you so much!"
- Mum to Isla (4) and Niamh (4 months)
"It’s a really lovely class, yoga for the mums with lots of stretches, and she tailors the class to what we need, and the babies are with us and being entertained and engaged.
All the babies are aged between about 2 months and crawling and Niamh loves it, she laughs and giggles her way through the class, I see it as our one on one time, I’d happily recommend it to others. "
“Thanks for your time and lovely attention. I really enjoyed the whole class, especially because it had a bit of everything, it wasn’t only yoga and exercise.
After the class, I felt very relaxed.”
