Lisa has been teaching Perinatal Yoga for 10 years, gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience during this time having taught at St. Thomas’ and Kings College Hospitals, as well as for the Life Centre Notting Hill, The Special Yoga Centre, Sitaram, Lotusbaby and Yoga Place E2. She enjoys creating the class around her students, using a blend of traditional yoga postures and modified sequences guided by the breath that will give each student no matter what their experience or level a feeling ease, space and comfort as they adjust to their growing bumps! With each class you will also learn how to use breathing techniques for pregnancy, to ease breathlessness and promote calm and happiness, and how to breath through your contractions, the times in between… and for birthing your baby in 2nd stage labour. You will be introduced to the practices of Mudras and Mantra, to create and focus on the bond between you and your baby and the sheer indulgence of Yoga Nidra, deep relaxation. These classes are also a wonderful way to connect with other mums to be, creating a fantastic support network which continues through to the mum and baby classes where you will be guided through practices for mum and for baby, with songs and dances around specifically tailored practices for this postnatal time. And of course there is always an attempted mummy and baby relaxation topped off with tea and cake!
Lisa welcomes all students from 12 weeks pregnancy and any time postnatally, niggles and any experience welcomed!

Pregnancy, Postnatal and Baby Yoga Cover Teacher and Teaching Assistant for the Birth Preparation Workshops.
My introduction to yoga began in 2003. Since then, I often have found myself going back to yoga, in search of stillness. I finally came to a conclusion… by sourcing the calm within and using my existing teaching skills (primary school teaching) I can guide others to heighten their physical, mental and emotional well being.
Within my classes, I encourage students to go beyond trying and draw their attention to doing –possibly even through a bit of humour. My teaching is woven together by a commitment to guide all of my students through their journey of life and for them to take care whilst smoothly progressing through it. They may even undergo a similar if not same awareness of freedom, self-love and acceptance that I have been feeling on my own journey.
