Some words from Bernadette about this course:

Well Woman yoga at home

Bernadette also offers individual Well Woman yoga therapy in your home.

Contact Bernadette for further details:
Tel.020 8853 5944

Well Woman yoga is also offered for the benefit of women with special requirements that cannot be met fully in general classes. The benefits of Well Woman yoga are inseparably physiological and psychological.

Discomforts that are not serious enough to warrant medical treatment may compromise women’s quality of life. These can be effectively addressed with yoga therapy, optimising pelvic tone and wellbeing. Yoga also helps women access a space of deep relaxation in which the psychological or mental roots of current conditions may be identified and addressed.

Yoga therapy is compatible with both mainstream care and complementary therapies.

Well Woman Yoga empowers women to actively take charge of their wellbeing with body and mind-based therapeutic tools that are simple and effective.

The Well Woman ranges of classic and adapted yoga practices & massage (named long before the brand of vitamins) was developed with women for women. It includes the teaching of specific restorative poses and flow practices, together with specially designed therapeutic micro-movements to benefit the neuro-endocrine and reproductive systems.

Asana and movements, pranayama, relaxation, massage, mudras and mantras are combined to promote pelvic tone and wellbeing and to optimise individual hormonal balance before conception, after childbirth and around menopause.

Practices taught carefully integrate the work of Eastern and Western healers and teachers, with references to classic yoga texts.

Recent developments in somatic healing movement and yoga therapy are included. Some of the practices taught on this are part of the Amazonian shamanic tradition.

Some words from Bernadette about this course:

Introduce your baby or toddler to yoga!

"I can wholeheartedly recommend this fantastic class. Bernadette really engages the little ones  in the yoga activities, using kiddy friendly activities and songs, whilst keeping a very authentic yoga vibe going . . . and it gives you plenty of ideas for repeating the activities at home.

Always very relaxing at the end of the class; Bernadette has a very soothing manner and even the babies and toddlers seem to chill out!"
Sara - Mum and local Midwife

Toddler yoga is a natural progression for little ones with a suggested age range from 18 months to 4 years. If your baby is a steady sitter, or crawler, or walker, they will love these classes that are offered for them to do with an adult.                 

You can also bring along younger siblings. Or perhaps dad, grandma or grandad would like to come along instead of, or even as well as, mum. In fact it could be a whole family experience!!

There are a range of  action movements and songs in these classes to stimulate digestion, respiration, circulation, balance and dexterity as well as listening skills and of course strengthening growing bodies in safe ways, plus infant appropriate yoga asanas & practices.

The classes are also great for developing social interaction. [Photographs below by Brian Aldrich]

Pregnancy yoga courses

Pregnancy yoga courses are an ideal way of enhancing pregnancy by strengthening, toning and preparing muscles particularly those which are used during labour. Each course teaches techniques which help with pregnancy ailments.

Deep relaxation and breathing techniques are central themes of her approach and time is given to strengthen the connection between mother & child. A range of techniques is taught to enable women to enter into labour with less fear and more confidence in how to manage this singular event in life.

"I wanted to say how important Well woman yoga has been throughout this last year.

Every aspect of your sessions has been invaluable, from relaxation, meditation, learning by recognising how to recognise, treat and challenge my flexibility, strength and mindfulness in a positive, caring way.

The way of practicing yoga that you teach is something I try to bring into the rest of my life with truly significant consequences for my everyday experience of wellbeing.

Thank you - you are an impressive and thoughtful teacher"
