Linda is such a wonderful woman, a fantastic teacher, and wealth of invaluable knowledge.
I attended the pre natal yogabirthing classes on a Wednesday evening in the beautiful garden studio; this is such a lovely setting, and definately helped with the relaxing vibe. I attended from 15 weeks to 37 weeks pregnant. I learnt so much that I didn't even know I needed to learn. This was my 2nd pregnancy, I was determined to have a more positive birth experience this time around, Linda was absolutely fundamental in helping me to achieve that. Thank you Linda!

I've learnt so much about women's health, posture and the importance of core strength from Linda. She explains the purpose of each move, which really helps motivate me to improve my practice and incorporate her exercises into my daily life. The classes are also incredibly relaxing, I always leave feeling happy. I would recommend to anyone!

I love my Thursday mornings with Linda Stephens. She has been a source of energy and inspiration over the last few years. She shares her knowledge of women's health through our different stages of life and reminds us how important it is to take care of ourselves. Thoroughly recommend Linda's classes if you want to be energised, feel strong, relax, and laugh.

Linda is an amazing teacher-experienced, warm and empathetic. She is graceful and generous with sharing her knowledge, and the classes fly by with lots of laughter too. Highly recommend!

I’ve been doing yoga with Linda for over 2yrs & I can honestly say in my 22yrs of trying various yoga styles with many different instructors, that Linda’s style of teaching is so unique! She totally understands a woman’s body and what we need to do to improve our posture, our well being as mums & also how to have fun doing it! I have arthritis in both hips & since my yoga with Linda, I’ve learned so much about my body, my posture & many ways in which to help myself deal with my condition!!! Thank you 🙏 Linda xxxx

I highly recommend Linda’s yoga classes.
I attended Pre Natal Yoga earlier this year and thoroughly looked forward to each class. Linda is such a passionate teacher who really cares and she is so knowledgeable when it comes to pregnancy and labour. The support and advice she offers is second to none.
I am now attending Linda’s Post Natal Recovery class. It feels so good to be able to stretch and I am even starting to feel some muscles I haven’t felt for quite some time! Babies are so unpredictable, so Linda does her very best to tailor each class to what is happening and what the mums and babies need at that particular time. On occasion (when little ones have been chilled out) we have even had the opportunity to completely relax at the end of class – a few very welcome minutes of pure bliss!

Linda is a great teacher who explains each movement and position carefully
with a full explanation of how it will benefit us. I am “yoga nonna” rather than
a “yoga mum” but have found the classes equally as relevant for “the older woman” !!
I have recently recovered from a serious shoulder injury and have really appreciated
Linda’s knowledge and the way she has “adapted” exercises for me. We all need time
out to replenish our batteries whilst using our breath for peace as well as strength and
keep our bodies moving and my time at “Yoga Mums” does just that.
P.s. I love her choice of music

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 me and our Daughter. Thank you Linda! X

I love Monday night yoga with Linda - it's fabulous. Linda is a really talented teacher who guides you expertly through all the poses and moves. The whole vibe in the room is great and I always come out of the session with a smile on my face! Thanks, Linda!

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 handidly changing woman's birthing experiences by giving them the tools by teaching them let go of being in control by accepting and trusting our amazing bodies!

Linda's classes are not only a lovely way to take a bit of time and relax during your pregnancy but they also provide you with a set of tools to help you cope with pregnancy, labour and beyond.
I went to Linda's weekly classes during my pregnancy as well as attending the couples' workshop with my partner.
The weekly classes helped me stay strong and mobile during pregnancy and along with the couples' workshop prepared me for giving birth and empowered me to make the best choices for me and baby.
Linda's classes are both enjoyable and useful, well worth doing, and as a bonus I met some lovely local mums-to-be along the way!

I cannot recommend Linda's yoga classes highly enough, in pregnancy or after. I am a women's health physiotherapist and find her knowledge of the core and pelvic floor to be excellent. Her a/n classes help prepare mind and body for the birth, and are also great for relaxation and stretching out aches and pains. She adjusts all the movements for anybody with back or pelvic girdle pain, or sufferers of pelvic floor dysfunction. I ended up needing a C section, but was able to use the breathing and visualisations throughout a difficult pregnancy and during his amazing delivery. He recognises the ''Om'' to this day as a soothing comforting noise!
The postnatal class is a refuge of support and shared experiences. I have gained the strength back in my stomach and pelvic floor, and also my arms and back to be able to lift my giant baby! It has been lovely to get out in such a 'safe' environment for a new mum, fussing babies that need feeding or changing (or cuddles from Linda!) are no problem and my son really enjoys the baby yoga section and squeals with excitement when we start. Cup of tea and homemade biscuits too, perfection! Thank you Linda!

Yogamums is amazing. I attended the pre and post natal classes and both were fantastic. Linda has a phenomenal knowledge of the changes and woman's body goes through in pregnancy and the birthing process. As well as the personal experience of having three kiddies of her own.
Linda's key skill is to really personalise each class. I went to class around 34 weeks pregnant with a sore lower back, I thought it was just the pregnancy symptom. Linda watched me and suggested it was, in fact, my posture. Within minutes she had shown me how to stand properly and my backache instantaneously relieved.
I also loved the compassionate and maternal vibe of the postnatal class. My son giggled though the baby yoga and I again really benefited from Linda's knowledge and passion for healing rather than achieving.
I wish I'd been able to benefit from the classes in my first pregnancy and would highly recommend them to anyone �
Kate Read 15th March 2017
I cannot thank Linda enough for the knowledge she shared with us in her yoga birth classes. As well as experiencing the immediate benefits of a yoga practice whilst pregnant, the classes helped prepare body and mind for a positive birth experience and I went into labour with so many tools to help me.
Highly recommend! Would love to write more, but little bubba calling for a cuddle! Thank you so much Linda for your ongoing support...xx

Linda is such a positive force that she makes all her classes so enjoyable and leaves you feeling empowered yet relaxed! I attended her pregnancy yoga classes and it was so enjoyable. Linda knows so much about the female body that she gives you such great advice to get through your pregnancy ailment free! I have now just started her post natal classes and again she has lifted my spirits and inspired me to get back into yoga and feel healthy again. I can't thank her enough for all the support and love she has shown me. Definitely recommend her classes to anyone expecting or who has just had a baby. Thank you Linda xxx
Sarah Hoyle 20th January 2017
Lovely personality, great with the babies as well as focusing on the mum's needs. Really worthwhile post natal yoga- I'd recommend it to all new mums. Classes are a joy to be at.
Becky Anderson 10th December 2016
Thank you Linda for the most incredible class yesterday and over the past 3 weeks. Wow...I am blessed to have found you! My body and soul literally sing after your classes and I know that by coming I am being so kind to me!
An amazing way to end each week...can't wait for next week.
You're incredible and such a talented and warm teacher.

First class yoga teaching in a relaxed and friendly environment.
If you haven't tried one of Linda's classes yet you should waste no time in putting that right - your body and mind will thank you for it!

Really enjoying Linda's yoga classes, it's helping me focus on strengthening my core/pelvic floor after having my little boy
