This is a weekly class held at Little Therapy Space, Wednesday evenings at 6pm. It is a beautiful blend of HIIT, Pilates type exercises and Pregnancy Yoga. It is an in-person class but you can join through Zoom if you prefer to access it this way.

Ladies are welcome to join once they are 12 weeks pregnant and can stay on with the class until they have their baby!

Each week we cover different ways of mobilising the body to allow the baby more space and to give them the opportunity to settle in an optimum position.

We also discuss and try positions to use during labour for the first and second stage.

This class is for you if you want to get 100% clear on:

  • How to exercise safely in pregnancy without harming your baby
  • How to treat some pregnancy aches and pains effectively
  • Keeping your body strong for labour and challenges of being a new Mum
  • Learning stretches to aid your baby into an Optimal birthing position
  • Learn ways to relax your body and mind
  • Meeting other mums going through the same stage in life
  • Learn from a specialist


The class is made up of a 20 minute circuit using bands, weights and body weight, followed by Core work, Pregnancy Yoga and finishing with some Relaxation.


Each week there will be discussion on themes which will aid your pregnancy, labour or postnatal stage:

  • Pelvic floor lengthening and softening
  • Posture
  • Breath work for Pregnancy and Labour
  • Maternal Balancing
  • Positions for labour


Each week we cover posture, breathing, pelvic floor contraction and activation of the deep abdominals. These will be worked into every day Mum movements making sure you use them correctly with good form and posture, and activate and engage your core rather than your back.

We cover stretches and movements for helping baby into the optimal birthing position which can be used at home during the week to help baby find its way into the position ideal for birth. As an experienced and specialist pregnancy and postnatal massage therapist I can also pass on advice and techniques on working with typical aches and pains in the upper and lower body and help you relieve them rather than try and cope with them.


What you will need:

  • Please bring your own water for your use throughout the class
  • Come in comfortable clothing that is easy to move in.
  • Bring layers as you may get very warm once you start working, and then chill once you start to relax.


Depending on numbers you may have to join a waiting list until someone leaves so please book early to avoid disappointment.
