I wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful pregnancy yoga course that you run.
I joined your classes after being told i had a low placenta and told not to do anything
that might exert myself, including most exercise.
To be honest, i wasn't expecting to gain much from it, as i was never a big believer in yoga.
I was just hoping to make a few new friends and have a break from everyone trying to wrap me in cotton wool.
I came to the first class and had a fantastic time. It was light hearted, relaxed and i enjoyed
sitting and chatting to the other soon be mum's after the class. I didn't feel like i had done any exercise, but the following
day it hit home and i ached (in a good way).
That was it - i was hooked. I really looked forward to my classes and your instructions made
it easy to follow and remember.
The further my pregnancy progressed the more and more usefull i found yoga to be. It really
helped to ease my backache and was a real life line when i developed swelling in my hands and feet.
The relaxation and breathing exercises were a real help during the birth. I therefore
didn't require much pain relief and was at ease when i was told i had to have an emergency c section, which previously i had
been so worried about.
But the main thing i have to thank you for, is your positive words of encouragement. Your
advice and outlook on child birth stayed with me from start to finish. I even repeated your words of wisdom to my husband during
the birth and it truly made us both have such a positive and wonderful experience, as we both stayed calm and relaxed.
I even find myself repeating them words to other expectant mothers and advising them to take
up your classes, as it made such a difference to me.
So once again I would like to thank you for helping me have the birthing experience that
i wanted and for a great time during your classes.

The yoga breathing and lots of the movements I learnt at the class were fantastic and invaluable during
the labour (I actually thought it was just a false alarm as it didn't feel intense enough and was 8cm dilated when the midwives
came!!). Even used the womb moodra (don't know how to spell that!) when leaning on the side of the pool!! Also the deep
squatting movements like in the lotus flower sequence were brilliant and the practice we had in relaxing tongue & mouth
when making movements - I kept hearing your voice telling me to do this and know that this must have really helped. In the
end, I didn't even ask for the gas and air (which I'd asked the midwives to hide in the car!), all these techniques,
the tens and a bit of hypno were enough to get me through!!
Anyway, we will see you soon - thank you again
for all your help and I'm really going to miss the lovely me-time on a Saturday morning!
