Gentle Yoga

Joy’s gentle yoga classes are in a style that is accessible for all, combining asana (postures), flowing exercises, and meditation, with the breath.

Each Gentle Yoga class will include postures and exercises that can be modified for each individual, depending on ability and familiarity with yoga. The classes will be a mix of gentle dynamic exercises, longer held postures and deep relaxation.

Classes I teach

Mother and Baby classes

This class is open to all mothers or carers with their baby, no matter how familiar they are with yoga (you don’t have to be postnatal). It is a gentle yoga practice, which includes and engages your baby, without directly putting them into yoga postures.

​The practice will focus more on your/the carer’s body, incorporating exercises that promote postnatal recovery, such as gentle core strengthening (abdominal and pelvic floor), as well as stretching, strengthening and breath-work practices. The class is engaging and fun to enjoy together with your baby, as well as nurturing and restful for yourself!

Pregnancy Yoga

This pregnancy yoga class is suitable for all stages of pregnancy – a gentle yoga practice for you as your baby grows and your body transforms to support this new life. We will be focusing on nurturing and nourishing your body, calming the mind and nervous system and supporting the breath in preparation for birthing. Open to all pregnant women, there is no previous yoga experience necessary, as this class is gentle and nurturing, with low-impact and flowing movements, calming breath-work, and deep relaxation.
