Mother Nurture Yoga with Lucy Maresh

Hello, I’m Lucy, a qualified yoga teacher and massage therapist, specialising in pregnancy and postnatal care.

I’m based in North Northumberland at A Space to Be Yoga Retreat, which I run together with my husband (Henry), two children and a cat!

Since 2009 I have offered workshops and treatments for hundreds of women and babies in Northumberland.

In 2020 I made my classes available online for the first time ever and have been able to share my practical and accessible approach to yoga for pregnancy, birth and beyond with even more amazing women.

The Mother Nurture “Work-In” includes movement, relaxation and breathing techniques for body, mind & soul.

I found it really helped manage aches and pains of pregnancy. The relaxation was also very needed at a time when I was quite anxious.

Lucy’s classes have been vital in helping me relax into my pregnancy and feel at home in my new body. I appreciate the way Lucy empowers you to discover and do what feels good for you. Lucy’s deeper understanding of yoga shines through, her classes are most definitely magic.

Jane, 2021

A beautiful time to check in with your body and your baby and meet other mums-to-be. Lucy is so knowledgeable and the classes have been so precious to me.

Claire, 2020

A great way to have some quality time with your baby, to meet other Mums and to spend time in a supportive, understanding environment. I really enjoyed the online sessions too and liked the fact we got to know each other and start making connections. Thank you for everything you’ve offered in this weird year – you saved my maternity leave!

I cannot recommend Lucy’s pregnancy and postnatal yoga classes enough. As a first time Mum they were an amazing place to go and learn about all the changes, physically and emotionally, that were happening to me. Learning to relax and using her yoga nidras prepared me for labour and enabled me to deliver at a midwife led unit with no pain relief. It was also a great place to make friends with other Mums to be.

Cannot recommend Lucy and the work she does highly enough. Amazing classes, a chance to meet other mums or mums-to-be, and a huge source of support and information. My first pregnancy, birth and 6 months with my little one would have been a very different experience without her.
