“An interactive and relaxing class in the calming surroundings of Hanna’s garden studio. She takes a real interest in our progress and we get to share our pregnancy highs and lows with eachother before the class begins. I feel better prepared for birth and breathing during labour after taking Hannah’s classes. Fully recommended”
“Yoga was never my thing but being introduced to pregnancy yoga with Hannah was fantastic. The postures helped me feel open and completely stretched out all the way through my pregnancy. The postures also really came into their own during my labour. I am sure my positive birth experience was due to pregnancy yoga.“
“Pregnancy yoga was an absolute God-send for me during my 38 weeks of growing, stretching and changing! I loved the intimate setting of Hannah’s studio and her informal yet v.professional teaching method. All of the breathing techniques Hannah taught us were put to great use during labour and in my final weeks, Hannah’s class would leave me feeling unbelievably weightless…which in itself was something of a miracle! Thank you Hannah, I’ve been recommending you to everyone!!“
“I can’t recommend Hannah’s pregnancy yoga enough, I really enjoyed every session i went to and the classes are small and personal and in a lovely purpose built studio in Hannah’s garden. I felt so relaxed and calm after attending the classes and Hannah is the perfect yoga instructor with a fun laid back teaching approach!“
“I started pregnancy yoga with Hannah at 14 weeks pregnant and I have thoroughly enjoyed every single class. It is great to warm up at the start of every session with an informal chat and catch up with the other pregnant ladies and get advice from Hannah on how to cope with the aches & pains that pregnancy can sometimes cause. Hannah is very aware of our individual needs and you can push yourself as far as you want to or try an alternative position that might suit you better. I am now 34 weeks pregnant and I make sure I find time every day to do some of the exercises Hannah has taught me and I am certainly feeling the benefits. I am very excited about having my baby, but I will really miss our yoga sessions!“
“I attended Hannah’s pregnancy yoga class from 14 weeks of pregnancy right up until I gave birth. In an otherwise hectic world I found this class so relaxing, it became my weekly haven! I have an underlying back problem so was expecting this injury to rear problems when I was pregnant. I had no problems at all and I feel this was due to going to pregnancy yoga. Hannah teaches you techniques to help with the process of giving birth, to ‘breath the baby out’. I’m sure this helped contribute to my ultra quick 3 hour labour. I had never been to yoga before, and would recommend this class to all pregnant ladies.“
