Jane- (Mummy to Ruby, Annie, Harry & Will)
It is hard to believe that it is 9 years ago since I came to my first Pregnancy Yoga class with Gill. The positions and practices helped to ease out aches and pains and the breathing practices were invaluable for a great night’s sleep. Gill showed us birthing positions and the magical Golden thread Breath and this kept me calm and empowered in all 4 births. I have enjoyed Postnatal and Baby Yoga with my 4 children and the all loved and responded well to the practices and singing. The babies slept very well afterwards . I also learned how to ease out my back and shoulders and techniques to strengthen my core and pelvic floor muscles. Thank you Gil for your extensive knowledge and for so many happy memories.– Namaste Jane
Gill’s aim is that women can feel more comfortable in their pregnancies and more calm and confident about birth. Since pioneering holistic Pregnancy Yoga classes from 2003 in Belfast and Lisburn, Northern Ireland she has taught over 10, 000 women, creating a supportive, friendly environment. Common problems can be shared and addressed within the Yoga practice and women can discuss problems and connect with each other- many returning with fourth and fifth pregnancies.
