Lydia did her first yoga class in the Himalayas when she was a little girl and loved it. Yoga has been a life long pursuit, but to give her a greater understanding of how the body works, and why it sometimes doesn’t, Lydia has also trained as a Bowen therapist and completed a diploma in physiology and anatomy. Having spent the last decade working with children and pregnant mums,she decided that working as a pre and post natal yoga teacher was her true calling. Lydia passionately believes that practicing yoga throughout your pregnancy and beyond, strengthens both the mind and body in preparation for labour, and paves the way for a more balanced and healthy life for you and your child.
Lydia instructs the following:
Open to those who are completely new to Yoga as well as those who are experienced. Must be beyond 14 weeks and can continue up until the birth.
Prebooking is essential.
