This is so much more than ‘just’ pregnancy yoga. I want you to feel prepared for birth and motherhood, as well as get a chance to exercise safely and recharge your batteries by taking time to relax and bond with baby. In class we cover a mix of specially adapted yoga postures suitable throughout pregnancy, breathing techniques and positions for labour, and always end with a beautiful guided relaxation. Classes are suitable from 12 weeks to birth and beginners are very welcome. Contact me for more info:
Mondays 12:45-2:00pm – St Anne’s Church,1 Kaimes Road, Edinburgh, EH12 6DA

Finding a class that both you AND your baby enjoy and benefit from is hard. In this class, we support your baby’s brain development, encourage motor and social skills, and teach you ways to ease digestive discomfort through gentle baby yoga moves, communication and nursery rhymes. For you, I will teach you how to use your breath to connect to and strengthen your core and pelvic floor muscles; you’ll stretch and strengthen through safe post-partum yoga postures, easing out the aches and pains from growing, birthing and now nurturing your baby. You will also meet other like-minded mums and hopefully get a few minutes of relaxation, plus a wee sweet treat at the end of class (do let me know if you or baby have dietary requirements!). Suitable from 6 weeks after a vaginal delivery or 10 weeks after a c-section, and beginners are very welcome. Contact me for more info:
Tuesdays 7:30-8:30pm – Sighthill Bowling Club, 102 Sighthill Loan, Edinburgh, EH11 4NT
Designed especially for the female body, we will flow through a sequence of postures to strengthen and tone your whole body, especially your Back, Abs and Pelvic floor. These classes are suitable for women of any age, shape, size or yoga experience. Our women’s yoga class is so much more than your standard yoga or gym class – aromatherapy, relaxing music, candlelight and a community of amazing women – you will feel energised and recharged in body, mind and soul. Curious…? Contact me for more info:
If you have any questions at all please just ask and I hope to see you at class soon. A non-refundable deposit is required to secure your space – please complete the booking form and health questionnaire and I will be in touch as soon as possible to confirm your start date as some classes may have a waiting list. Your block will begin when you come for your first class and if you have holidays/commitments prior to booking let me know and we can work your block around them.

What people have said about my YogaBellies classes...

I would highly recommend Louise’s yoga classes. I attended her pregnancy class and it was by far the best thing I did whilst being pregnant. Not only is the yoga great for both mental and physical wellbeing, Louise made the classes so enjoyable. Her classes had the perfect mix of yoga practice along with discussion and information, not to mention the classes are a great way to meet and chat to other pregnant ladies. Louise is one of the kindest people I’ve met, when I was faced with a breech baby she went above and beyond to do independent research to pass on to me which was invaluable. She is so much more than a yoga teacher. She is caring and supportive – You want this girl in your life during pregnancy!
I really am so grateful for everything you have taught us in the pregnancy class. I honestly put my positive birth experience down to the advice, techniques and confidence that came from the chats we had in class. I was so nervous about the birth and you were brilliant at pointing us in the direction of information or just chatting through some of our concerns! It was also great to meet the other ladies and find out that I wasn’t alone in some of the things that worried me. I enjoyed the yoga but the social/support element of the group and the breathing and relaxation parts of the class were my favourite. I didn’t often feel my baby move when I was pregnant but she always gave me a wee kick when we did the relaxation at the end of class and it made my day!
Just completed 8 weeks of pregnancy yoga and signed up for another block to take me right up to due date. Didn’t try this with my first pregnancy but wish I had. I am a complete yoga novice however Louise is a fantastic teacher – her classes are relaxed, friendly and welcoming. Even when I really can’t be bothered she shows us a stretch, move or technique that help with pregnancy aches and pains. The venue is beautiful too. Would highly recommend to anyone.
I joined Louise’s pregnancy yoga class towards the end of my pregnancy as I was struggling to find any exercise suitable with Pelvic Girdle Pain and I’m so glad I did. It was the highlight of my week – such a supportive group of women and Louise was amazing – she modified any positions for me to ensure I could fully participate. It helped keep me sane and mobile through my final weeks of pregnancy. I now go to her Mummy & Baby class which are very relaxed and, again, supportive. Louise is knowledgeable, experienced and clearly cares about everyone in her classes. I highly recommend her to all Mums/Mums-to-be. If anyone has any queries or questions, just get in touch with her and she’ll happily chat about it.
I wanted to say how much I enjoy your classes. Tuesday always seem to be the busiest and most stressful day of my week getting organised for work and nursery but I always feel so relaxed after class it’s the perfect ‘me’ time :)
As a mum of two, Louise’s CorePlay class on a Tuesday night is my saviour. It’s a calming and supportive class with a nice bunch of people. When I arrive the stresses of the week fall away and I leave feeling lighter, happier and generally more positive. Louise offers different levels of postures through the class so you can push yourself and get a good workout if you want to, but there’s absolutely no pressure. She explains everything very well. I love the class and having completed two blocks (about to start my third) I really feel the benefits of it.
Firstly let me tell you how much I have loved your classes. They have been so joyful and a fabulous de-stresser. I have never had a yoga class experience like yours. You create a wonderful full rounded experience. From the candles down to the lavender eye masks. Every small detail considered. Thank you again. I would never of before considered myself a yogi but you have converted me!!
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the class, I like your approach the whole session is gentle, feminine, slow, yet strong and powerful. I feel so energised and calm when I come out of the class. I wish i could do it 3 times a week
I’ve loved going to Louise’s classes since my son was just a few weeks old (he’s now 7 months). Louise is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. She creates such a lovely mummy-led space. She’s happy to hold babies if she has spare arms so you can enjoy some calm. The classes are great for easing yourself back into your body post baby. I’d def recommend going to her class and am going to miss seeing her smiley face each week. It’s been something I’ve looked forward to each week.
The loveliest, cosiest, most welcoming yoga class ever. Louise is a wonderful yoga teacher and if not for the location of where I live, I would continue going to her mum and baby classes, and would sign up for all the other classes she offer!! I always left feeling relaxed and empowered at the same time.
I started the mum and baby classes when my baby was 8 weeks old. The environment is so relaxed and welcoming, very responsive to the needs of the babies!
I’ve attend both Louise’s pregnancy & mum & baby yoga & loved her friendly & informative nature. Her classes are focused on what matters & really great way to relax then recover. I’ve also met a lovely bunch of mums! Thank you so much for being a great teacher & making the classes so fun, relaxing & a safe space when you are in the kind of vulnerable stage of motherhood.
