What to expect?
a place to BE as much as DO
There are babies in the room. Sometimes mamas haven't slept well. Some folks will get more chance to move others will be tending to baby more. Try not to place to big an expectation on getting things done in class.
You'll get back up material to use at home, classes are a space for community and being as much as doing the exercises. There's also space to sleep if you need it, extra eyes and arms to help with baby, people to listen to you, plus biscuits, tea.
You can rock up in your PJs if it's that kind of a day.
It's a no judgement zone.

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.”
