Antenatal yoga has to be the best time and money I have ever spent... And no, I’m not
just saying that! I kept calm and breathed through it all!

Karen Bridle

A huge thank you for all your support and
wise words during my pregnancy, birth and postnatally. You have provided such a wonderful, empathetic shoulder in addition
to the valuable yoga and breathing techniques. During my pregnancy the classes were my only real opportunity to switch off from work and focus on me and my baby. The classes helped me to stop and enjoy the moment.
I have also made many great friends through the groups and we continue to support
each other.
