“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 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 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!

“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”
