About Me

Hi, I’m Leonie and I run YogaBellies in Nottingham. I’m the lucky Mama of two gorgeous mancubs (3 and 6) and we love nothing more than to spend our days baking, painting, creating, wandering around the garden barefoot…and doing lots of Yoga of course!

Why I became a YogaBellies Teacher...

My Yoga Mat is my Happy Place; I discovered that when I was going through a really stressful time, simply spending time connecting my body and mind through postures and breathing made the dark days a little brighter…then I found myself rising early every morning to stretch, balance and breathe deeply , and before I knew it, I realised I was the calmest and happiest I had ever been during and after yoga!

My little ones are a bit part of my Yoga journey too; they have their own mats (often covered in crumbs!) and I often enjoy my morning practise with my toddler driving toy trucks down my back… As a Mama and experienced Early Years teacher I am fascinated by and passionate about Child Development and love how Yoga is the perfect way to help little people navigate their emotions and develop their physical skills. They are natural yogis; we can learn so much from them! Come and join me to start your Yogic journey with your little one (baby or toddler)!

For Mamas-to-be I offer calming, nurturing Pregnancy classes to strengthen your body, soothe your mind and prepare for a beautiful birth experience. I LOVED being pregnant and feel so honoured to be able to empower women to embrace their pregnancy and birth.

I love YogaBellies because it is accessible for all women regardless of age or previous experience; the classes are inspiring, fun and down-to-earth. In my Luna yoga class (for all women) we celebrate the different moon phases, connecting breath and body through our postures and pranayama, in a beautiful, candlelit studio enhanced with delicious aromatherapy oils and calming music.

I would love to welcome you to my class; I truly believe that all the women of Nottingham need some YogaBellies in their lives!

What people have said about my YogaBellies classes...

“Leonie is a truly wonderful teacher, she is able to adapt the classes to suit all ladies and stages of pregnancy effortlessly. A beautiful session for mamas and bumps!!!”

“Fantastic first session, feeling strong, relaxed and connected with baby! Thanks Leonie!”

“I am really enjoying the evening Luna yoga sessions. Leonie guides you on a nurturing and calming journey, through beautiful yoga moves and guided meditations. The delightful aroma of nourishing and calming essential oils and warm lavender eye masks are a real treat too. The whole evening is pure bliss and leaves me feeling peaceful and grounded.”
