My name is Lucy Maresh and I have been running yoga groups for pregnant women and babies here in North Northumberland since 2009.
These classes include:
- prenatal yoga
- birth preparation
- postnatal yoga
- baby yoga and massage
- relaxation and meditation for mothers and babies
- opportunities for friendship and connection
Usually we meet at my lovely little yoga studio in Shilbottle but at the moment we have to keep each other safe, so we meet online. Trust me, no-one was more freaked out by this than me, but when the first lockdown was announced last year I knew I had to keep my groups together, so we bravely tried – and it wasn’t so bad after all!
Mother Nurture Yoga is a lovely way to relax and bond with your new baby, while also learning about your changing body – and making new friends of course! Each group is supported with weekly emails and an optional whatsapp chat.
In addition to the online classes, last year we were able to get together at Shilbottle Hall once restrictions eased and we also had a trip to the beach and outdoor yoga in the park in Alnwick.
Whether you are newly pregnant or have a babe in arms, you are welcome to join our lovely community of nurturing mums. Whatever stage you are at, please enter your details below and I will send you some free resources to get started, and an invitation to join the next group for your stage.
Sending warm wishes to you and your baby,
A place to feel relaxed, safe and amongst friends.BRYDIE, 2020
During lockdown, I was so grateful the classes were available online. They helped during pregnancy, during the recovery after birth and to bond with my baby.REBECCA, 2020
Thank you for everything you’ve offered in this weird year – you saved my maternity leave!Julie, 2020
