ABOUT THE CLASS
During this period of constant change, yoga provides a space where expecting and new mothers feel strong, grounded, rejuvenated, and inspired. It’s a complete practice for mothers to build strength and suppleness of the body and mind, but with respect for their bodies and the little passengers they carry on board (or already in their arms!).
Elisa completed her yoga teacher training while living in New York City and is Yoga Alliance UK registered. Since moving to London she has continued to pursue her own development as a student and as a teacher by training with some of the world's best teachers, including studying with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli to receive her pregnancy yoga certification. She teaches a fluid style of yoga to nourish the mind, body and spirit with inspiration drawn from her own continuously evolving practice and life—as an urban city-dweller, a woman, and a mother!

One word: Amazing! Being six months pregnant and feeling like my body is changing every single day, I just love how flexible Yoga is to fit my needs. I can't recommend it enough.
