The classes have been running since 2004 in Belfast and Lisburn and are a unique fusion fun Yoga practices for mums and babies. They help mums to feel calmer, and more revitalised and are an antidote to the stresses and strains of modern motherhood. They provide a holistic, uplifting and relaxing Yoga practice. What’s more, mums need only take part in as much of the class as they or baby would like. 
A mother who participated in the course commented on how it was like ‘an oasis of calm’ within an increasingly busy world.

Classes last for one and a half hours, allowing time to create a nurturing, supportive ambience for both mother and baby to relax and deepen their bond. It is a baby-friendly environment, where babies can be fed, changed, rocked or sleep. This is the yoga of touch and love – yoga of the heart! Informal and lively, and beginners to Yoga are always welcome. 

Baby Yoga

Baby Yoga helps babies to stretch out and become more aware of their bodies. They practise age-related, stimulating Yoga sequences accompanied with songs and rhymes and also take part in their mother’s Yoga postures. 

Postnatal Yoga

Postnatal Yoga is gentle, progressive and carefully adapted to meet each mother’s needs. It helps to release tension in the shoulders from feeding and lifting and to ease out tired sore backs. It is accompanied by Yogic breathing (pranayama), deep relaxation and visualisation so that mums and babies can learn how to relax together. Babies are often asleep by the end of the class. 


There is always time at the end of Postnatal and Baby Yoga for mums to enjoy snacks and drinks together . During this supportive time friendships are often formed for life.

Meg and I enjoyed our Wednesday morning sessions with you - it certainly brought a little calmness into our lives!

'I began antenatal yoga with Gill at 16 weeks and ended at 38 weeks. , The breathing techniques helped me the most, and the stretches made the aches and pains of pregnancy more tolerable. When my baby turned breech, Gill taught me practices to try to turn the baby, As soon as I could, I signed up for Baby Yoga, until my daughter was 6 months. I knew that I liked Gill's classes, but I didn't know my baby would too l! It was great for her socialization, and she and all the other babies love the songs and rhymes combined with stretches and exercises. I highly recommend both classes.
