Movement for a better pregnancy and postpartum
With over 10 years teaching experience with pregnancy and postnatal families we offer a unique programme of functional and mindful movement to help adapt to the challenges of pregnancy, prepare for birth and reclaim yourself after baby’s arrival. Based in Somerset, but with a growing range of online materials to make this more accessible. Courses are designed to fit with everyday life, to help you have more beneficial movement on a daily basis rather than coming to a class once a week. For Somerset locals we offer mothers massage and private one-to-one and small group classes.
Emilie Joy Rowell
"Emilie helped me feel more in control, less apprehensive and to know what to expect, so I could navigate a calmer way through - knowing how to listen and respond to my body.
The whole experience was really lovely."
- Alice, Bristol
“The classes were comprehensive, covering all of the body from head-to-toe. There was good focus on breathing, relaxation and preparing for birth in various positions.
I enjoyed the relaxation at the end and almost fell asleep! I felt very nurtured by Emilie and would be happy to recommend her to other expectant mums.”
- Claire, Brighton
"I had a beautiful, intricate pregnancy massage with Emilie yesterday! Probably the most relaxed I've ever been, ever."
- Hannah, Frome
"I highly recommend Emilie's yoga classes. With a warm and gentle approach, she teaches very intuitively to your needs. I liked the way the practice was insightfully linked to everyday experience and how Emilie made suggestions for the continuation and development of the yoga poses at home."
- Lucy, Frome
"I love the Baby & Me yoga classes as it gives me a little time each week to reconnect to my body and breathing. Emilie has a really calming presence and is great with both mums and babies.
Highly recommended "
- Thais, Frome
“Emilie was super attentive. Her level of pressure was exactly as we talked about and there was plenty of opportunity to adjust if necessary.
A lovely massage.”
- c, Brighton
“The best thing was the reassurance, empowerment and relief gained from all the information on the course. I only wish it lasted longer - what a wonderful day.”
- Mrs E Hawke, Bristol (Birth Preparation Workshop attendee)
"This is Yoga at its best. Simple, restful and ticks all the boxes. Every need is catered for here and the class encourages and facilitates all.
Emilie is a brilliant instructor and teacher."
- Carol, Frome
