“The midwife told us how relaxed we were and that everything would be fine because of our calmness. That's all because of your Yoga!”

Meet the challenges and transformations of pregnancy and birth with confidence! Join any time from 14 to 42 weeks. I also offer one-to-ones, including in 1st trimester, and birth preparation workshops for couples in the third trimester.

No yoga experience is necessary and you don't need to be flexible or fit! The movements are adapted to your needs and are safe and supportive for mums with pelvic and back pain, and other pregnancy ailments.

“As a midwife I believe that the best preparation for birth is to learn how to relax and to know and trust your body. I did pregnancy yoga with Fiona throughout both of my pregnancies and I think that this, and her workshop for couples, is among the best birth education I have seen!

Fiona has an amazing ability to empathise and communicate with birthing women (and her dedication to to the health of the pelvic floor is astounding!). Her classes are accessible and are the perfect way to start your preparation for a natural and empowering birth. As a midwife and as a Mum, I can't speak highly enough of Fiona's classes.” Amy, Hove. 

About me

I have been practising yoga for over 20 years, teaching for 13 years, and training yoga teachers for 7 of those years. I have worked on and off with babies and children over the last 25 years. I am also a postnatal yoga therapist (see pregnancy and postnatal health).

I am passionate about supporting women through pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. This is a time of huge changes for you, and my aim is to provide a nurturing and supportive place for you to explore this journey in your own unique way.

No pregnancy yoga classes running at present.
