Pregnancy Yoga

Online Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga can play a key role  for a smooth pregnancy and empower the mother-to-be to have the most conscious birth experience. But more importantly, yoga does wonders on the physical and mental development of the baby. Alexa offers her pregnancy yoga classes with an open mind and open heart. Alexa’s approach to yoga is non-dogmatic and her classes incorporate a range of Hatha Yoga traditions which are adapted to suit the overall dynamic of a class as well as each individual’s needs.

Antenatal Yoga / Pregnancy Yoga / Prenatal Yoga

Antenatal yoga is suitable for mums-to-be from 12 weeks (actually whenever you want!) and you can safely practice until your babe arrives. This style of yoga is a lovely gentle, supportive and nourishing practice which will help you enjoy your pregnancy and also alleviate the common ailments sometimes experienced by expectant mums, such as back pain and pelvic girdle pain, aching joints, tiredness, fatigue and breathlessness.

In a antenatal yoga session you will learn a combination of yoga positions and movements to create comfort and space for you and your baby. You will learn breathing techniques to help you through your pregnancy and through childbirth itself and you will experience some lovely deep relaxation techniques, helping you stay calm and relieve the anxieties associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

Classes are a happy mix of women at different stages of pregnancy and with varied experience of yoga. Pregnancy naturally inspires a connection to and curiosity with our bodies and yoga enhances this, taking us deeper into ourselves.

All poses are clearly demonstrated and designed to help you feel your best as your baby grows. We also practice useful poses for labour and birth so that they become familiar, comfortable and easy to use instinctively in labour.

Breath awareness is an important element of each class and we focus on variations of the breath and traditional pranayama to calm the busy mind. This equips mothers with a powerful tool to stay grounded and focused during labour. We learn how to employ the breath to release fear, tension and difficult thoughts.

Each class ends with a deep relaxation and a quiet moment to feel at peace with your growing baby, a cocoon of love and calm in our busy lives. The vibe in the classes is upbeat, nurturing and friendly. With candles burning, music playing and lots of warmth and good humour.

“I just wanted to tell you how incredible I think your classes are. I am a Midwife at King’s Hospital, and before I attended your classes I was finding it difficult to allow time to care for myself and connect to my pregnancy. However from the first session I attended I immediately felt grounded, centred and at peace. I have a natural tendency and interest in meditation and nature which I found useful to practice with an App through my pregnancy, but your classes took this to another level for me. I felt there was such a nice balance of talking / meditation / breathing exercises and movement. After each class I felt rejuvenated, centred as one with my body and my baby. I ahh’d ooo’d and shhh’d my way through labour just like you had shown us, that alone got me through the hardest parts. I look back on my labour as one of the most intense but spiritual and wonderful experiences of my life and a lot of this is dow to your classes”

Pippa, June 2021

Having practiced yoga for 10 years and taught for 5, when I found out I was pregnant I was really keen to find a teacher to guide me through safe movement during pregnancy. A bonus of lockdown was, due to all the online content, I was able to try a variety of teachers and honestly struck gold with Alexa! Her classes are warm, fun and accessible to all levels. Her session not only accommodate the changes in the body but she also offers tips to help alleviate any pregnancy related ailments. She encourages a connection between you and your baby, nurtures trust in your bodies ability to birth and each session ends with uplifting movement to music. I cannot praise her and her wonderful classes enough!

Katherine, June 2021

I have done your pregnancy class (almost) every week since I was about 16 weeks pregnant – I am now nearly 34 weeks – and l have loved it. I always come away with a huge smile on my face (particularly after the dancing), feeling energised and i find that I get much less discomfort at night when I have done your class in the morning.

Marieke, February 2021

Dear Alexa, we wanted to let you know that our son Otis arrived on January 24, very calm and healthy!! We had a lovely calm and relaxed birth experience, everything went the way we had hoped.  Thank you very much for all your great help to achieve this, even though we hardly used your partner tools, as Otis was very keen to arrive quickly at the end. I won’t complain about this 🙂 Your support during yoga and meditation classes was such an important help to get me in the right mindset for birth! I can’t wait to join your prenatal yoga together with our little boy. Thank you so much.

Pauline, July 2020

I love her approach, it is so different from yoga and pregnancy yoga classes I have done before.
I have often generally found a lot of yoga classes a little on the dry side sadly. A bit on the religious side with chanting or repeating words that don’t really mean anything personal…
Alexa’s approach is very fresh, alive and spiritual. Almost transcendent…
She has a strong connection with Music which she plays during her classes (or encourages you to play if the class is online).
She also teaches in a very Feminine way. Incorporating dance!
It feels like she shares her heart and soul when she teaches. She has a beautiful energy.
Being a doula means she really understand Woman nature.
I would totally recommend Alexa’s classes.”

Mel, June 2020

“Hello! I just wanted to let you know my beautiful boy Louis arrived on 26th May at home in the birth pool as we had hoped for. My labour was very calm at home & once again I found your pregnancy yoga class an invaluable tool to empower me to keep calm and focused in labour and also to stay positive in the 9 days he was overdue. We also ended up using your Spotify playlist which the midwives commented on what a lovely playlist it was. Having moved from London since attending your class in my first pregnancy I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to enjoy it again virtually and to have also had the experience with my sister Laura who lives in north London, a definite positive for me from Covid19 lockdown and classes being moved online. A big thank you again to your wonderful class and your positive energy!”

Austeja, June 2020

“I’ve been attending Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes and they have been an absolute bliss! I love the balanced combination of relaxation, stretching, working the body, breathing, preparing mind and body for birth, connecting with the baby and getting more confident, calm and happy after every class. It’s so much more than just a regular yoga class! Thank you, Alexa x”

Bridget, June 2020
“I love Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes. She’s always calm, kind and full of joy, which comes across really clearly even through the Zoom classes. I feel like she really listens to each person during the check in and offers helpful, non-judgemental advice from her wealth of experience, without being preachy.
Her classes are easy to follow, and can easily be dialled up or down with the dynamism depending on how I’m feeling on the day. The classes follow a similar basic structure each week, but with plenty of variation in the practices to keep things interesting.
One of my favourite parts is the free dancing we do towards the end, when Alexa puts on a great dancing tune and you can just let your body move however it wants. It’s a brilliant way to unwind, connect with the baby and just forget about everything else in the world for a few minutes!
I would highly recommend Alexa’s classes to all expectant mothers.”

Danielle, June 2020

I’ve done pregnancy yoga with Alexa since I was about 20 weeks pregnant and really loved her way of teaching: it was always calm, empowering and fun! Alexa gives great tips and tools for pregnancy and birth and also makes you feel confident as a woman that we’re built to bring babies into the world. My baby is now 1 week old and I look forward to baby yoga and massage with Alexa!

Rebecca, June 2020

So glad I found Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes so early on in my first pregnancy (14 weeks). I really look forward to joining and always feel a million times better afterwards – calmer, more mobile and more in touch with my baby. Dancing with my baby is my particular highlight! Enjoyed the in person classes in Jan / Feb and the online ones have been amazing during lockdown. Couldn’t recommend them more! Thank you so much Alexa!

Vera, June 2020

Naomi, June 2020

After trying out lots of local pregnancy yoga classes I settled on Alexa’s as I found it to be the perfect mix of deep stretching, sage advice, conscious breathing and best of all, joyful dancing! It is also a great opportunity to check in and connect with other local mums in these strange times.

Steph, April 2020

Alexa is simply brilliant. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has a wonderful, calm and confident way of teaching. Her classes are so much more than just about yoga and she has a great sense of inclusiveness. She makes you feel uplifted, invigorated and yet totally relaxed and tension-free. Her classes were always the highlight of my week when I was pregnant.

Gemma, November 2019

Alexa, thank you so much for everything. Your classes have been such an important part of my journey to becoming a mother. Your pregnancy yoga class, not only helped me stay strong and supple during pregnancy but gave me a sense of calm and wellbeing. You gave me courage and strength to face giving birth head on and I used your breathing techniques and mantras to get me through the contractions. Your couples workshop was great for my partner, giving him practical tips to help me during birth, keeping me calm and feeling supported. And the postnatal yoga helped me get back to feeling myself but most importantly a really lovely bonding experience every week for me and my baby. I miss you!

Anya, November 2019

Pregnancy yoga is not just an exercise, it makes a huge difference to be in a room with other pregnant women in a supportive and gentle atmosphere. I always look forward to Sunday class at triyoga Shoreditch with Alexa. Her approach is playful and intuitive, and it really makes me relax and go deeper inside myself. Her classes give me confidence in my own body and it’s ability to birth. I have thought I have been particularly good at yoga, but pregnancy yoga is a completely different thing. It’s about listening to your body and using movements in a supportive way.

Gemma, June 2019
I can’t tell you how useful the dancing was in my intense early labour phase.  The only way I could handle the intensity of the contractions was on my feet, so I danced in my bedroom to Bob Marley for over 12 hours. It was the only way I could find any relief.  Also, the breathing, particularly the sighing for me was what I did for every contraction is that 48 hour period, I found it was the only way I could ensure that I was breathing. While the labour was more intense than I could have possible imagined, the baby stayed calm throughout and I ended up having a natural water birth with no tearing. The actual pushing phase only took 10 minutes and she came out perfectly happy and healthy. Thanks again, I feel like your classes got me through this, not sure what I would have done otherwise.

Kay, February 2019

Hi Alexa, just wanted to share with you that I had my ‘little’ girl, Rose (weighing 8lb9oz) on Saturday! I managed to labour at home for several hours with only a TENS machine and all your wonderful yoga poses etc. and then went to Kings for a water birth and Rose made her appearance after only 3 hours of us being in hospital. I am convinced I couldn’t have done this without what I learnt in your classes and your help and support, and just wanted to say a big thank you.

Ruta, December 2018
Dear Alexa, I feel very fortunate to discover your pregnancy yoga classes, which I believe played a huge role in our successful pregnancy and birth. Keep doing what you are doing and many more moms will be happy! Thank you so very much!

Aislinn, September 2018
I hope this finds you well! I have been meaning to send you an email for some time now but the last ten days have been a blur and I haven’t quite found the time to sit down and write to you.
As I write, my little daughter Greta is asleep in her Moses basket beside me. I still can’t quite believe she is here!
Thank you so much for your guidance over the past six months. The exercises and breathing and perineal massage advice were what got me there in the end – I don’t think I would have coped with the labour without being able to channel what we had covered in your yoga classes. Ten days on, I’m feeling so much better. I know the classes have also helped with my post-natal recovery. Many thanks again and very best wishes.

Kathy, August 2018

Just a quick note to say thank you – I attended your Sunday pregnancy yoga sessions in shoreditch and couples yoga session. I gave birth to the beautiful Otto on 7th August – I honestly don’t think we could have done it without using all the skills I acquired in your sessions – the movement, breathing and very importantly the mindset. I had an extremely positive birth, even though it started with a gel induction and I was on the ward (rather than the planned birthing centre). I also managed to not tear (!!), which the midwives put down to my controlled breathing and pushing. Thank you! Anyway, thanks again and I hope all is well with you. I look forward to joining your baby yoga sessions once Otto is 40 days 🙂
Kathy, Anjo and Otto

Cecilia, July 2018
Hi Alexa
I hope you’re well.
We had our baby on Sunday 22nd July! He was 11 days early, and is doing so well. I was fortunate to have the water birth I planned for, carrying him out of the water, and delayed cord clamping gave us wonderful skin on skin time and our first feed.
I can honestly say thanks to your yoga classes and the couples yoga class Matt and I went to, we had this magical birth. The continuous movement and changing of positions was amazing through early labour plus continuous breathing techniques/exercises helped me throughout. Thank you. Thank you.

Monica, July 2018
Dearest Alexa
I hope you have been well…
I have been meaning to get in touch with you about the birth of our beautiful baby boy!
Luca James William Parsons arrived on 25th May at 10.17am. He is absolute bliss and we feel like my lives have just begun!
I want to thank you for your inspiration and kindness, I used the hypnobirthing throughout my labour and it definitely gave me focus. I had a positive experience at C&W, the care we received was amazing, and the tens machine was all I needed through contractions. A godsend! I also thought of your mothers prayer and yoga techniques/dancing throughout my pregnancy.. And even now postnatally.
Sending all our love from Luca, James and I xxx

Romina, April 2018

Te quería contar que el 15/04 (domingo de la semana pasada) nació Oliver con 3,5kg. El parto siguió lo que tenía escrito en mi plan y tus movimientos de la clase me ayudaron muchísimo!

Empecé con dolores tipo periodo a las 6am pero empecé a sentir contracciones a las 8am recién. Para la 1pm no podía hablar más entre contracciones y fuimos al hospital, ya tenía 7cm de dilatación! Apenas me podían revisar porque tenía contracciones cada menos de dos minutos. En esa etapa la meditación fue clave para no desesperarme. Había pedido water birth y las dos piscinas estaban libres así que tuve suerte. Después de dos horas en la piscina ya estaba totalmente dilatada pero me relajaba demasiado, al punto que lograba dormitar entre contracciones y las contracciones empezaron a espaciar más. Me pidieron salir y fue inmediato, una contracción atrás de otra, y luego de una hora de pujar, Oliver estaba en mis brazos 💙 Durante la segunda etapa meditar fue imposible porque un instinto animal se apoderó de mí y mi mente estaba en blanco. Lo único que mi cuerpo hacia era pujar y hacer los movimientos que aprendimos en tu clase. Durante las tres horas de trabajo de parto en el hospital me ofrecieron gas pero no lograba digerir nada, todo me hacía vomitar así que fue un parto 100% libre de drogas. Oliver estaba sosteniendo su cabecita con la mano (lo sigue haciendo hoy todo el tiempo!!!) y eso me causo un pequeño tear pero los masajes de perineo fueron claves para que no fuera más serio.
Lo que aprendí con Gowri y el gentle Birth Method se complemento muchísimo con tu filosofía y en conclusión todo ayudó a tener una experiencia distinta y nada traumática.
Por favor contale a las chicas que tener un parto distinto se puede y lo mejor de todo es que tengo un chiquitín al lado mío qué es lo mejor de la vida.
Te mando muchos besos y GRACIAS por tu energía y todo lo que me enseñaste.

Helen, December 2017

I wanted to thank you for being an excellent yoga and hypnobirthing teacher-your approach to it all and style of teaching, your general gentle and relaxed and positive demeanour were a really important element of my mental preparations-I kept thinking about birthing my baby gently and that every birth is right for every person, and I was in control. My only regret was that I was busy so many Sundays when I had to miss your class!! But I’m glad I made it for one last one last week-I’m sure that helped too!!
Thank you Alexa-you’re brilliant and really inspirational. I will now look forward to you mum and baby classes!!

Rose, December 2017

I just wanted to thank you for your classes – particularly the couples yoga class. I came to your class at the Shala quite frequently throughout my pregnancy, as well as practicing daily yoga at home, and I’m sure yoga was the main reason I had a simple pregnancy and a labour for which I needed no pain relief, despite it lasting 35 hours. Baby Ramona was born on 30/11 weighing 8lb 9 oz and we are both very grateful to you.

Chloe, December 2017

Sharing the news! Thank you for your role in our wonderful birth! I have loved the pregnancy classes and especially the sharing of information. So so helpful to be aware of choices during the whole process. THANK YOU!

Sarah, November 2017

Hi Alexa, I wanted to let you know that our perfect daughter, Maisie Alice, was born this morning! 3.4kg and we are both doing well.
At first it was mentally tricky- although I had persuaded her to turn anterior last week, it started with 26 hours of contractions 5-8 mins apart with no pattern, until about 2am today! Then waters broke, and everything sped up like crazy… we got to lewisham birth centre just in time at 7cm, I jumped in the pool, and sampled some delightful gas and air as it was time to push! She was super relaxed when she came out into the water, it was so amazing.
I could not have got through those irregular contractions at home without you… your classes really helped teach me how to take things one step at a time and the different positions were so useful.
Hope to see you at a mum & baby yoga class soon!

Karlie, October 2017

I wanted to get in touch to say thank you for the advice in the class! I had my second baby on the 10th Aug and your words of wisdom in the class really helped! I listened to one of the tracks you used (I am) during my labour and remembered your tip about dancing which really helped me to focus and relax. My little girl arrived via a water delivery after a 10 hour drug free labour just as I’d hoped. My first born was a forceps delivery after 36 hours and I’d done a hypnobirthing course prior to this which helped but it was a completely different experience to my second birth. I have been meaning to drop an email as the one class I had with you made a real impact and your advice was great! Thank you!

Pippa, August 2017

I found your yoga classes in the run up to the birth incredibly helpful and your couples course, I did so many of the techniques we learnt whilst labouring. I felt really well informed and able to make decisions without needing the staff to explain things. It meant I didn’t find any of the changes and decisions stressful and I was able to have the calm birth I wanted. We are really enjoying being on cloud 9 in the new born bubble, getting to know each other. I look forward to seeing you soon and introducing you! Many thanks!

Amy, February 2017

Hi Alexa! We welcomed our daughter Evelyn into the world – and I wanted to thank you so much for all your advice during our yoga classes. I used so much of it during labour – all of the breathing exercises, as well as lots of the positions – and it meant I was able to stay at home until I was 7cm which felt like an achievement!  Your classes were wonderful during pregnancy, and proved invaluable during labour. Thank you.

Elizabeth, February 2017

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the past few pregnancy yoga sessions that I’ve attended at Evolve with you. I really enjoyed the classes – they were so relaxing and taught me lots of helpful stretches – I always feel MUCH better on a Monday night thanks to you! Thanks again, and hope to see you again in the future – I will also recommend your class to my friends who are expecting.

Dia, January 2017

Dear Alexa, I’ve been wanting to write to you for months!
I gave birth to a baby boy ‘Reef’ end if August 2016. It was an unplanned home birth, and it was a beautiful experience, and I feel I have you (and my wonderful midwife and husband) to thank for that.
I was nervous about the birth because I had a negative experience with my first, Leila. It was a very medicated birth and we felt we lost all control over the way things happened unfortunately. I had a few panic attacks with the second, but attending your class every week helped me so much. Not only to relax, but also to gain confidence and empowerment. Your energy and constant mantras are beautiful successfully convinced me that I can do this positively and all will be OK.
That 3 minutes exercise was super useful! I used the way we learned to breathe during labour and sincerely felt I was in control of the contraction (to a certain extent ofcourse it was still hard work 🙂 ). And when I gave birth I was in a position that we practiced together and so my body felt comfortable with the way I moved etc..
Although our plan was to go to the midwife lead unit I just felt things were progressing too fast and felt comfortable to stay at home. I was with the ‘birch tree’ team, don’t know if you know them but Paola was great and so positive, and it was all done in 3 1/2 hours, and a 4.3kg little Reef!
Anyway I really just wanted to thank you with all my heart for your contribution in this, it would not have been the same without you. Much love x.

Tilly, December 2016

Baby Anna Clementine arrived on 1st December which was actually her due date. We had decided to keep our options open and hired a birthing pool in case we wanted to stay at home but in my rational mind I thought we might always end up at the midwife led unit at Kings. In the end the decision was made for us!
My labour started at 1am and for the first four hours I sat on my birthing pool and we watched some TV. I was able to use my Hypnobirthing and yoga breathing to feel very relaxed during this time. When things became more active I got in the bath and stayed there for a few hours. Things then became very intense very quickly and between 7am and 8.30am my surges were coming every other minute. I was on all fours hissing and horse lipping which helped me remain really calm. I kept thinking in my mind the line you say in your little poem ‘help me to surrender to the power of birth’ and I just let go. We called the midwife and she could hear me and told me husband to start setting up the pool. When she arrived I was still on all fours and she just sat outside the room and listened to me. At this point I was feeling the urge to push and there was no way I was going to hospital! I got in the pool around 9.30am and by this time the other midwife arrived and they both just sat outside our lounge and I went with my feelings to push. They did listen to baby and me when they needed to but it actually was very intimate with me and my husband. About 90 mins later Anna was born!
I can honestly say I enjoyed labour and felt so calm throughout. I was able to squat and open my hips really widely in the pool because I’d been active throughout my pregnancy. This paid off as Anna was 9lbs 11oz and whilst I did have some tearing I came off well.
It has been amazing meeting other ladies at your classes and you really instilled me with the confidence to be calm and embrace pregnancy and labour with excitement.
Hope to come to your baby massage classes in the New Year. Much love.

Lucy, November 2016

We’re delighted to welcome a little girl into our family. Eve was born on Wednesday night, weighing 7lbs 8.5oz. My partner finally consented to a home birth. I rested in the afternoon, had supper with my parents, watched some tv, had a bath, and she was born. At one point in the bath I thought this was a really beautiful way to give birth – a candle, some yoga birthing music, my husband by my side. The transition from opening to wanting to push was much quicker than expected and my waters broke, I got out of the bath and within 10 mins she popped out. It was so quick unfortunately my husband was on the phone trying to rush the midwife here. And because they weren’t here the paramedics had to be called. So it wasn’t a terribly peaceful end, and not ideal for my husband, but I never felt out of control or anxious. It was amazing to catch her (I was standing up) and to be in our bed afterwards with her. I used the hissing noise on all fours for the opening phase, and the vowels on all fours in the bath when it got more intense. Thank you – I didn’t manage to use my breathing techniques much last time (which was still a lovely, natural birth, but I didn’t feel on top of it) – and these were perfect. I really enjoyed your classes (and in the dark with the lights the room felt so nurturing and womb-like!) You’re a font of knowledge and a great advocate for having (or trying to have) the birth you want. Thank you.

Rachel, May 2016

Alexa, your classes were the absolute stand out thing in my pregnancy that helped prepare me and my husband for birth and now beyond. Thanks to your weekly advice and sharing of your experience we were able to navigate through the tough decisions with confidence.
Only a day after you told us about the transition stage being the hardest- (it being the point at which when I would doubt myself and ask for an epidural and my husband would look at me at see my fear) did it happen to us. And thanks to your sharing of your experience was I able to prepare him, and he able to in turn, keep me breathing through the pain on all fours on the floor.
We couldn’t thank you enough!

Liz, March 2016

Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes have been truly inspiration for me in this special time. I have felt the benefits on all levels, mind, body and soul. Alexa teaches with passion, knowledge and love for what it truly means to be a woman and a mother, with honesty and openness to help guide you through the journey of pregnancy and into birthing your child, in whatever space that may be – so that you are educated, informed and relaxed.

Sharice, November 2015

Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes provided so much more than I expected to gain; discussing various experiences of pregnancy and our expectations of giving birth we got lots of advice and guidance as well as a really enjoyable and soothing yoga practice which was varied and dealt with all the aches and pains of pregnancy. I always left the class on a high and I feel it was big factor in my thoroughly enjoying my pregnancy.

Lindsey, September 2015

I’d never done yoga before pregnancy but after my first class at 16 weeks I was hooked. Alexa creates such an enjoyable experience from the lighting and the music in the room to a relaxed atmosphere where you can interact with other ladies in all stages of pregnancy, and start to connect with your baby. The yoga classes are varied, adaptable to how much you want to do and Alexa’s advice and knowledge about all things pregnancy and labour is incredible. I absolutely used her techniques during my labour and her music was the soundtrack to my son’s birth. Tuesday nights were a special part of my pregnancy journey. I highly recommend it.

Caitriona, August 2015

I met a friend a few days before my little boy was born and she mentioned how calm I appeared about the upcoming labour and birth. Looking back, I attribute that calmness to feeling as prepared as possible and part of that preparation was the antenatal yoga I did with Alexa. I used to look forward to my class and being with all the other mums counting down to full term. And I used to love how much better my upper back felt afterwards! Alexa was always kind and interested and each time I went along I felt I was looking after myself and also being looked after.
My son is nearly crawling and I now do yoga with him next to me (for how much longer I don’t know!) At the end of every practice I hold him in my arms and remember when I used to put my hand on my bump at the end of antenatal yoga and I think about what a long way we’ve come. Thank you, Alexa, for some great memories!

Clare, December 2014

I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for all your advice during our classes. I honestly had the easiest, most relaxed labour. I could hear your voice in my head throughout and was so calm, little Jonathan nearly arrived at home, then in the taxi.
My waters broke at 05:45, just before Ben’s alarm went off and after the first full nights sleep in weeks. I was examined at 11:00 to confirm my waters had indeed broken, which they had. I was feeling slight contractions and was 2cm dilated at this time. We arrived home at midday and Ben went shopping for lunch! By 13:00 my surges gently started and I went in to my little relaxed bubble and I had 2 paracetamol. By 15:00 I asked for the tens machine, I now know this as being my transition! At 15:30 we called triage as I felt the urge to push! Ben was told to call a taxi and if we couldn’t get one then an ambulance! We arrived at hospital after me telling myself repeatedly not to push. We were examined at 16:00 and were 10cm dilated plus 1 as we were very much crowning. I was put in a wheelchair, taken to a room and literally thrown on all fours. With 3 pushes little Jonathan James was born at 16:08! You were with me all the way Alexa. Thank you so much. We didn’t even have gas and air. We literally rode the surge and breathed our little boy out. I have no idea how many times I heard in my head in your accent ‘with each surge I am one step closer to meeting my baby’. :). You have no idea how much that helped.
By midnight we were home with a beautiful baby boy. I do hope to see you again to thank you in person.

Sarah, November 2014

I could not thank Alexa enough for the peace and serenity she gave me during my pregnancy and labour. Having started the classes after my 12th week scan, i never stopped till the due date. Alexa is a wonderful teacher, and her classes gave me a lot of tips to remember at home and during labour. It helped a lot as well to relieve back pain. It was such a pleasure to go and enjoy her class every week, even though I was tired from work, I felt so much better and relaxed after! A big thank you Alexa, I already miss your classes!!

Ruth, November 2014

My yoga breathing and the positions you taught me really were a huge help whilst I was in labour, so thank you. I loved coming along to the class each week, it felt like such a special way to bond with my baby and to take time out from a busy work life. The classes were always so relaxed and friendly, I’m not surprised they are so popular.

Lynn, October 2014

I started the pre natal yoga class from around 14 weeks pregnancy with twins. My last class was just a couple of days before giving birth to my twins Carl and Lumi. I loved that every class started with some tips for natural birth and a healthy pregnancy and the exercises were wonderful. This helped me a lot getting ready and prepared for labour. Thanks so much, Alexa!

Alexa, a short thank you note to say how much I have enjoyed your yoga classes. As a yoga novice I found the classes very beneficial and relaxing and as a mum novice I learned loads from you. I am excited about meeting my baby and feel sure the yoga has helped in my relaxed mindset. Thanks!

I really enjoyed your classes and it has been fantastic to be able to pick up yoga again. It was lovely to meet you and also meet a few people in London, it really helped towards helping me feel a little more at home here, and keep fit! Thank you for everything.

I attended Alexa’s yoga classes from around 20 weeks pregnant. I found them wonderfully relaxing and it was great to be able to do some exercise with the bump! Alexa is a great teacher – very understanding and knowledgeable. I always left the class feeling reinvigorated and very positive about the upcoming birth! I found the techniques taught very helpful during labour. I would definitely recommend this class whether you have done yoga before or not.

The only sad thing about having my baby is not being able to attend Alexa’s incredible yoga classes with other pregnant mummies. I attended the classes from about 28 weeks pregnant right up until I gave birth and found I could do most of the techniques and any I found a little tricky Alexa adapted for me and so it was always a comfortable and mindful experience for me and my bump. I formed a lovely friendship group with the girls in the class and ended up holding some of the classes privately at my house with them, which was such a special experience. Alexa is a fantastic teacher and goes above and beyond with help and advice for new mums to be, from positions, which help with digestion and swelling to practical advice in the labour room. I can’t speak highly enough of Alexa and her experience and anyone who is lucky enough to attend her classes are in for a real treat.

I attended Alexa’s pregnancy yoga class from around 16 weeks right up to my due date. I was astounded by the difference it made to my own sense of physical, mental and emotional well being throughout my pregnancy. The classes were energising yet still gentle enough to be relaxing, making them a wonderful aid to sleeping, especially in the final weeks of pregnancy. Alexa made each participant feel welcome and valued by asking about their well being at the start of each classes, which I personally felt enriched the experience for everyone. I was also practising hypnobirthing techniques which I would recommend is used in conjunction with this class as they seemed to complement each other very well. A great pregnancy yoga class, suitable for all fitness levels.

I attended Alexa’s Pregnancy Yoga class from around 17wks to 30wks. Initially I missed the fast pace from my normal Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga routines, however as time went on, I felt the benefit more & more and realised the different excercises helped relax myself & the baby. Once we began our NCT classes I discovered I was really quite well informed on many topics due to the time I spent in Alexa’s classes. The discussions/top tips/group chats proved really useful & informative, and it was reassuring to find out I was already aware of the key positions to aid the baby’s position prior to, and during labour. I now practice a similar routine at home to maintain a healthy body & mind, all based on what I learnt during each class. Thank you Alexa!

I’m a big fan of yoga – I teach as well, so it means a lot to me. I tried out a few classes around London to find the right one for me and I stopped at Alexa’s. Her teaching really touched me, wonderful energy and warmth. I had no feeling of being on the London treadmill – the production line was left behind for a while. Alexa creates a space for calm consideration, somewhere to let go and share. Her experience as a doula means that all the movements she incorporates to her classes will serve you during birth as well and because she knows what your body and mind will go through her sensitive targets make everything feel really great. I recommended her to my antenatal class and my midwives and friends who were pregnant too and everyone who went loved it too. So treat yourself 😉 Don’t just stop at the nearest yoga class you find – it might be worth seeking out one of these classes… Congratulations and good luck from another new mother!

I attended Alexa’s antenatal classes for much of my pregnancy and really missed them when we moved out of London towards the end of my pregnancy. I found the classes, which Alexa tailored to the needs of the group, simultaneously relaxing and energising – I always slept well after them and woke up refreshed the next day. They provided a good opportunity to meet other ‘mum’s to be’ & to share experiences.
A very beneficial and enjoyable class.

I would like to say a big thank you for the pregnancy yoga classes I attended with you. I gave birth to a boy in June and the yoga classes were very beneficial. They helped with my breathing and relaxing during the pregnancy, labour and delivery (and also post pregnancy!). The positions you showed us during the classes were great for stress relief during labour. Also the chats at the beginning of class discussing various questions or topics were very informative and personal.
I can highly, highly recommend Alexa’s pregnancy yoga. It was great to do some gentle exercise throughout my pregnancy and I always left the classes feeling relaxed and refreshed. Thanks again.
