“The yoga practice was completely invaluable, from the breathing techniques to the strength in my legs and being able to use different postures at different points in the labour!”
YogaBirthing Pre Natal Yoga
My Prenatal classes are all about getting you ready for what may be the biggest physical and emotional event of your life. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training, preparing physically and mentally for birth just makes sense!
I’ve done extensive post graduate training and have been teaching pregnant women and their partners for over 10 years now. I am passionate about helping empower women (and partners) to go into the birth that unfolds for them with a full ‘toolbox’.
Through my own three very different births I can vouch that these Yoga tools are invaluable in pretty much all pregnancy and labour scenarios, directly alleviating aches and pains (the Gate Theory of pain) and, keeping you grounded and deeply relaxed.
My YogaBirthing classes are all about teaching you how to ‘be in control of letting go of being in control’, an incredible ‘anchor’ that will help you embrace whatever birth unfolds for you, moment to moment.
Every class incorporates yoga stretching and strengthening to alleviate pregnancy aches and pains and prepare your body for birth.
You’ll also learn Specific BIRTH TOOLS like:
*Ocean breathing and Vocal Toning to access endorphins
*Posture & Pelvic Floor exercises for Birth and post natal recovery.
*Labour Positions to work WITH your uterus and baby
*Natural induction techniques and dealing with ‘stalled labour’
* Acupressure, massage and self hypnosis techniques

“I birthed a 9lb 6 baby just through breathing, gas and air and seemingly finding my inner bear! Thanks again for all the tools, techniques and confidence.” Amanda
“Seeing Linda throughout my pregnancy kept me feeling calm and I left every class feeling empowered and energised. My birth did not go to plan, however her breathing techniques and vocal toning were essential and kept my mind focused. I even used buzzy bee breath with my fingers in my ears as they performed my c section. Linda was always at the end of the line in case I had questions… she extends her care outside of the classes and gives love, support and encouragement to all of the Mamas she meets. We are so lucky to have her on our doorstep… her knowledge and experience is incredible… she is single handedly changing woman’s birthing experiences by giving them the tools to trust our amazing bodies!” Amy
“I started Linda’s classes when I was 19wks up until 40wks and loved every one of them! My husband and I also attended the yoga birthing workshop which was invaluable to us both. Both the physical and mental preparation these classes teaches helped shape such a positive birth experience for us and our Daughter. Thank you Linda!” Kate
“Your classes have been so hugely beneficial in preparing me for this birth and I’ve really enjoyed coming along.” Nikki
“The training from class was extremely helpful during the labour. Thanks for all the work and knowledge you provided in class.” Chrissy
“Pre-natal yoga with Linda was brilliant during my second pregnancy. Linda is such a knowledgeable and kind teacher. She showed me how to stay mobile without overdoing things, despite an SPD diagnosis at 24 weeks. She also taught us a whole range of tips and techniques that really worked when I went in to labour. Highly recommend this class!” – Elaine
