  • One to One Yoga

    A private yoga class can help if you have specific needs like pelvic pain, emotional stuff going on, or a schedule that just doesn't fit in with general classes.


    Emilie has a wealth of training and experience in teaching classes and individuals and will talk with you about your personal situation and needs to put together movements and relaxation suggestions to fit your life.

  • BENEFITS OF Pregnancy Yoga

    How can yoga improve your physical and emotional experience in pregnancy?

    Better flow

    Yoga improves circulation, helping the blood flow freely through the body and providing more oxygen to both mum and child. This may in turn help lower blood pressure and help you stay healthy.

    Balance & posture

    Yoga can help you adjust to the changes within the body, literally finding your centre and feeling your way through the changes in your body.

    Stay strong

    Keep moving and gently strengthen legs, arms and core muscles every week to help you stay strong and prepare for birth.

    Sleep better

    Relaxing and feeling more comfortable in your body can help with insomnia. As well as relaxing during sessions, exercising the body can help you sleep better at night.

    Soothe aches

    Common pain areas such as hip and pelvic soreness, lower back pain and tense shoulders can be gently stretched and relief found.

    Combat colds

    Breathing well and relaxing can benefit the immune system; helping you combat colds and illness.

    Feel good

    Classes promote the flow of oxytocin. It’s the ‘love hormone’ that helps you birth and breastfeed your baby. Getting into this zone every week can be hugely beneficial to prepare for birth.

    Time for you

    Having space and time to adapt to pregnancy and new motherhood can be vital for peace of mind. In classes there’s time to chat, share experience and meet other mums.


    Why mothers love motherslove:

    Classes to help you navigate through a calm pregnancy - motherslove pregnancy yoga with Emilie


    Mum to Jago (4) and Jory (1), Bristol.

    "I came to motherslove antenatal classes with my first child. Emilie was a brilliant teacher. During my first pregnancy I felt quite anxious and she was very reassuring and calming.


    Emilie helped me feel more in control, less apprehensive and to know what to expect, so I could navigate a calmer way through - knowing how to listen and respond to my body.

    The whole experience was really lovely."
