Firstly, I would like to give thanks to my hugely supportive husband and inspirational mum for making my yoga teaching life what it is. My mum used to run pre-school groups on the Isle of Wight when my sister and I were young and I think my joy of teaching mum's to be and babies/toddlers stems from there. My husband and I are fortunate enough to teach regularly together and share the same passion for teaching yoga to others. I am blessed with both of them x
Most visitors to my site come to look at the pregnancy and mum & baby/toddlers classes. We offer small, friendly classses in a number of locations in Sheffield. We have mum's who have found very good friends and support from the classes. Having been to other yoga classes, I can say with hand on heart, ours are different from the rest thanks to the great ladies that attend and their vision of their babies births and beyond.
Here's what mum's said about the pregnancy yoga classes...
"I can't begin to tell how much the breathing techniques learnt in your classes helped me through a very long 42 hour labour! I simply couldn't have done it without them. The breath in for one out for two was a godsend, even the midwives were amazed with how well it worked."
"I have really enjoyed how you taught the classes and facilitated general learning about pregnancy and childbirth. I also really enjoyed being in the group. A really lovely bunch of ladies!"
Here's a piece of feedback about the mum and baby classes.....
"Thanks for running such a great baby yoga class, I've enjoyed it and I know my baby has."
"I would just like to say a massive thank you as your classes have really helped me and my baby bond and I made some great friends too. I'll be recommending you to all my friends".
If you have any questions or would like to talk to me about yoga, please call or email me. My mobile is 07739490143 (if I am teaching, please leave me a message). Alternatively, do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Namaste, Nicola
Teaching Yoga in Pregnancy and Beyond...
What I do
I have a passion for yoga and have enjoyed teaching for the past three years in both London and Sheffield. Every class is a new challenge and I think you'll enjoy the energy that is created in all of my classes.
I believe in the power of yoga and how it can uniquely help everyone at different stages of their lives. The use of breath, body and mind in unison is a magical and powerful tool, often under-estimated and often under-used. Yoga helps people to enhance this tool and use it in their daily lives.
I am lucky enough to be able to teach the following;
Pregnancy Yoga - for blooming mum's-to-be
Post Natal Yoga - for gorgeous mum's with babies
Toddlers/Family Yoga - for babies sitting independently and onwards.
Labour Support Classes - for your birthing partner
Baby Yoga (including baby massage) - for beautiful babies with mum's
1-2-1 Classes - for individual to enhance your practice or accommodate special needs
Fertility Yoga& Woman Yoga Therapy - please contact me for details
Infant Massage - for mums, dads, and carers
All of the classes that I teach are fun and interactive. My aim is to make yoga accessible to as many people as possible no matter their age or sex.
Pregnancy, Post Natal, Womens and Family Yoga Life
Having taught Ashtanga to many women, I was asked time and time again about pregnancy yoga so decided to undertake a specialist training to allow me to teach mum's-to-be. I was very fortunate to be able to study with the wonderful Uma Dinsmore-Tuli , of the Sitaram Partnership, at The Life Centre, in North London. Uma's approach is like no other and focuses on nuturing mothers and teaching them about natural birthing techniques including yogic breathing and relaxation/visualisation techniques for labour.
I have also trained with Uma to gain another qualification, Post Natal Recovery Yoga (BWY course) for mum's and babies, incorporating baby massage and I have completed Uma's family yoga/early years training (BWY course) allowing me to teach family and toddlers yoga.
In addition to this, I have completed my Infant Massage training with IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) and training in the field of 'well womans' yoga promoting well being for issues such as coming in to womanhood, menstural cycles, fertility, pregnancy and mothering. Offering women the chance to reflect on self nuturing.
I am a British Wheel of Yoga Teacher.
Childrens & Toddlers Yoga and Massage Life
I have trained with YogaBugs in London to teach young children and currently teach in schools in Sheffield. I have developed my own toddlers class from the experiences that I have gained teaching babies as they grow and am now delighted to also offer toddlers yoga to Sheffield's families.
I get the most joy teaching carers and babies however and have been enthralled to add the Certified Infant Massage Instructor (International Association of Infant Massage) qualification to the others that I hold.
I teach a variety of individuals and design bespoke programmes for each person so that they can gain the maximum benefit from the sessions. These sessions are held at my studio or in the comfort of your own home. Fertility and women's issue particularly lend themselves to the 1-2-1 programme.
Thai Massage Life
I decided to train in the art of Thai Massage to use it as a basis for adjusting in my yoga classes, provide tradional massages and to take parts of the massage series and translate it in to useful techniques for my pregnancy, post natal and baby yoga classes. Thai Massage works on the whole body and is based on simple but effective stretching techniques. It can be adapted to suit all levels of fitness and flexibility and adds a wonderful element of hands on work in womans yoga (particularly fertility), pregnancy, post natal and baby yoga classes!
