These popular Pregnancy Yoga classes in York are a great way to stay flexible and mobile, throughout your pregnancy, helping you feel relaxed, calm and in control of your birthing experience.

Come and enjoy a good stretch with some flowing Yoga Movements. We will experience some deep breathing with specific Breathing techniques for birth. Pregnancy Yoga is a great way to stay active, throughout your pregnancy. You can come along to a class from 14 weeks pregnant until birth.

There will be a long guided relaxation towards the end of the class, hopefully leaving us floating home and ready for a good nights sleep. At the end of the class, we will have some tea, chocolate & informal chat in the meeting area (optional) but a great way to make new friends

Tamsin has been teaching Yoga since 2004 & been teaching Pregnancy Yoga in York for 5 years now. She has two children, Her first child was born in 2006, her second in 2008. She practiced Pregnancy Yoga throughout both her pregnancies.

“This time during my yoga practice was blissful, having some time and space to myself, some quiet moments for me were invaluable.“

It seemed like a natural progression for her to go on and teach mothers to practice the art of yoga! She completed her teacher training in pregnancy and postnatal yoga in 2013 with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (Sitaram Partnership).

Tamsin absolute loves sharing all she has learned with other women; she is passionate about passing on the knowledge she has gained over the years. She loves being part of this particular time in a women’s life & hopes that all women will have a good, positive, birthing experience. No matter what kind of birth they want or end up having.

Testimonials

“I started Tamsin Yoga classes at 16 weeks pregnant. I continued throughout until I had my baby at 39 weeks. Tamsin was so helpful & explained everything in detail. I felt the class helped my body during pregnancy & also my mind. I came away from every class feeling relaxed & happy. It’s also a lovely way to meet people & chat after class with tea and chocolate. thanks for everything” Lizzy.

“Hi Tamsin, I just wanted to say how much I loved pregnancy yoga with you; it made me feel so much better, relaxed and in tune with my bump. It was such a lovely, calm and friendly class and that’s because of the very welcoming atmosphere you create. I am really going to miss it, so I am definitely coming to Baby Yoga with Matilda with you, thanks again” Cat.

“I started going to Tamsin’s Yoga class in York at around 20 weeks into my pregnancy, it was the best decision I made. The class is so relaxing and the breathing techniques I learned were invaluable during labour! I used all the breathing techniques Tamsin taught me in class throughout my labour and did not need any additional pain relief. Highly recommended!” Roharna.

“I attended Tamsin’s Pregnancy Yoga class from 15 weeks of pregnancy right up until the end. The class was really enjoyable and an excellent way to stay fit and flexible during pregnancy. For me, the combination of yoga stretches, breathing, and gentle exercise was ideal. Tamsin is a great teacher and is always happy to adjust the content of the class to fit individual needs. I’m definitely planning to move on to one of Tamsin’s other classes now my time with pregnancy yoga has come to an end” Katie.
“Dear Tamsin, I would like to massively thank you for teaching me the breathing techniques, they really helped me in coping with the contractions during labour! A thousand thanks for accompanying me on this way during my pregnancy, we are so blessed with our cute and lovely Emil” Anett
 “I have been attending Tamsin’s Pregnancy Yoga classes since I was 14 weeks pregnant. Now at 32 weeks, I feel really confident to have a natural, active birth – if possible. I have learned some really good breathing exercises and positions to get into during labour!
The social tea and chat after the class have also been a lovely way to meet people in the same situation. I would love to attend the Mummy and Baby Yoga once my baby is here! Thank You, Tamsin!!” Amy.
 “I was already 32 weeks pregnant by the time I got to Tamsin’s pregnancy yoga class, but it was definitely still worth attending. As this was my second child I had not had the time to really connect with my bump. Tamsin’s session gave me the opportunity to forget everything else for an hour or so and focus on me and my growing baby. The exercises were not strenuous in any way but left me feeling invigorated, and helped with the joint pain I had been suffering, but it was the breathing techniques that were invaluable when I finally went into labour. The ujjayi breath came naturally to me and was all I needed to see me through much of the labour. Two midwives were so impressed that they asked if I had done hypnobirthing classes! In the end, I went on to use a tens machine followed by gas and air for the final push. I now attend Tamsin’s mother and baby class with my beautiful daughter” Lara.
We would love you to come and join a class.
