Join me to stretch, strengthen, relax and prepare your mind and body for labour, birth and new motherhood.
Each week we will spend 90 minutes together for a gentle prenatal yoga practice, discussion on a topic surrounding pregnancy, preparation for labour, birth, new motherhood, tea and a sharing circle.
A beautiful class to help you tap into your innate wisdom, connect with other like-minded Mamas-to-be, feel relaxed and prepared.
Some of the topics we will discuss/what we will practice during the term include: active birth positions, creating a birth plan, importance of relaxation, meditation and visualisation, comfort measures for labour, breathing techniques, optimal foetal positioning, building physical & mental strength, yoga nidra, fear releasing, building your postpartum village, breastfeeding a newborn, essential oils, Ayurvedic nutrition for pregnancy and more.
These classes aren’t just suitable for first time mamas-to-be, but equally beneficial for those who are in their second or subsequent pregnancies and want to feel relaxed, connected and empowered for pregnancy, birth and new mamahood!

“When the intelligence of the body is awakened through the practice of yoga, it will guide the woman throughout the pregnancy, making her feel perhaps more in touch with herself than ever before. She is then taken closer to her own nature and ready to flow with the moment of birth when it begins” — Frederick Leboye
Yoga is a system of techniques for balancing the body, mind and spirit through relaxation, exercises, postures, breathing and meditation. Many Mums-to-be are attracted to yoga for the first time during their pregnancy.
My classes are beneficial for both those new to yoga and experienced yogis.

“I just wanted to let you know how much I loved your class last night, it was so relaxing and beautiful in your lovely little space. My hips have been so tight and sore these last few weeks and I haven’t been able to find the right stretch for them, but today I woke up feeling fabulous and moving freely! I think it was the warrior 2…So thank you so much – I’m really looking forward to next week’s class.” – Belinda
“Briony was wonderfully welcoming and made entrance to the class very easy. I loved the little touches, like the nurturing touch as we got ourselves settled and the aromatherapy oil as we relaxed. The visualizations/invocations were gently placed in the class and very valuable, I think it’s really important to use the power of the mind. I also really enjoyed the asanas. The physical sequence flowed beautifully and was varied enough that the whole body felt activated and relaxed afterwards. She was on hand to support an adjust and did so gently and appropriately.” Laura
