YOGA FOR PREGNANCY

Some of my most precious memories of my two pregnancies involve the lovely Maya Morgan and her pregnancy yoga classes. Her classes offered not only time out from my hectic working week but a time to connect in with my ever-growing baby. A time to explore my body and prepare for the amazing transition that is birth. I loved practicing yoga when pregnant and I looked forward to the friendship and understanding the group offered me at this special time.

My pregnancy yoga classes aim to offer you this space and more. We will meet in small groups in the cozy, warm and supportive environment that is Pantiles Yoga. The sessions will explore movement and breath allowing you to develop a deeper understanding of your body and find comfort throughout the changing needs of your pregnancy. We will work towards preparing you for your labour and the days and weeks beyond.

Please be aware that you do not need to have any prior experience of yoga to benefit fully from pregnancy yoga. Please also be comforted to know that my small class size allows me to give you individual attention throughout the class.

Pregnancy Yoga is also taught by Brigid Godwin from Unity Yoga. Yoga has been a huge part of my life since I took my first Ashtanga Vinyasa lesson 19 years ago. I simply loved it but had no idea at the time how life changing it was going to be for me, or that I would end up as a teacher. However I’ve now been teaching for 14 years. I’m registered as a Senior Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance and hold the British Wheel of Yoga Teachers Diploma as well as Perinatal Diploma from The Birthlight Trust. I teach Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Pregnancy Yoga and Postnatal Yoga for mums and babies. I’m delighted to now be joining the Pantiles Yoga team to teach Pregnancy Yoga. Pregnancy Yoga with Brigid is on a Tuesday at 11am.

“I have just attended my first Pantiles Yoga class and it was the most spiritually & emotionally pleasing yoga class I have attended in a very long time. The location is amazing; Lucy, the teacher (mum of two young boys) runs the intimate classes from her beautiful period home and is truly inspirational. Tunbridge Wells mums who don’t already know about this little gem in the heart of Tunbridge Wells should!” Melissa.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

This is about letting go and just being. About relaxing in a way that many of us have forgotten is even possible, soothing away the stress and strain of everyday life. During a restorative yoga class you will be fully supported by props in each posture, easing your body into a deep relaxation. The lights are dimmed, the room warm and the atmosphere infinitely calm.

My training has been with Judith Lasater, author of Relax and Renew and International yoga teacher. I am listed on her website as a qualified Relax and Renew practitioner. Do have a look at Judith’s website for more information.

Restorative yoga classes work best as private sessions so that I can tailor the session to your specific needs. Give me a call and we can discuss how I can help and the price per session.

“The yoga studio is a fantastic light room with high ceilings and the classes are of a really high standard. Not only are the classes well prepared by Lucy but every aspect creates a wonderful atmosphere. During relaxation Lucy brings you into a total state of bliss. The attention to every detail makes you feel wonderful and relaxed.” , Linda.

“I first met Lucy when I attended her group pregnancy yoga class and immediately felt at ease and comfortable with her style and approach. I made an informed decision following the birth of My son to return to Lucy’s classes but for one to one tuition. Lucy has taught me so many things about my body and mind and through her teaching I have been able to manage by Bipolar with greater compassion. I have learnt the vital ingredient of spiritual balance that without Lucy I would never have achieved. Lucy is a natural teacher and a continues to be a inspiration to me. She is passionate, funny, nurturing, patient, generous and encouraging.
She is Tunbridge Wells best kept secret. Shhhhhh.”
