Pregnancy Yoga

I am qualified as a Trust in Birth Prenatal yoga teacher through The Elbow Room in Dublin (Yoga Alliance registered).

Looking after all aspects of your health at this time of change is so important and my 'Positive Birth' yoga classes offer many physical and emotional benefits.

Combining yoga poses & strenghening exercises with relaxation, mindfulness & breathing techniques, these classes will help develop the skills necessary for you to cope with the demands of labour and motherhood and prepare you for your 'positive birth'!


"Giving birth should be your greatest achievement not your greatest fear."

Benefits of Baby Massage

Baby massage is a wonderful experience shared between you and your baby. It is an ancient and loving art that can:

  • Aid sleep and relaxation
  • Develop the bonding process
  • Help with digestion
  • Aid wind and colic
  • Help reduce postnatal depression
  • Stimulate your baby's nervous system
  • Provide massage techniques to use at home
  • Allow you to meet other parents and their babies

Baby massage is also effective and beneficial for premature babies, and those with special needs. Please contact me if you have any queries about your baby’s specific requirements.

 

Mum & Baby Postnatal Yoga

Mum & Baby Postnatal Yoga is a class where you can bond with your baby while exercising safely, strengthening your mind & body after birth.

I have collaborated with numerous womens health physiotherapists and osteopaths to bring new mums a class that focuses on poses to open and stretch the body, exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor & abdominals and also breathing & relaxation techniques to help you feel calm and restored.

Babies will love watching mum exercise along with enjoying the infant engagement parts of the class where we sing nursery rhymes, do some massage and try out some baby yoga of course!
