The yoga has helped me so much throughout my pregnancy to keep calm and bond with my baby. I loved all the sessions!
Many thank for all you do for us your grateful students!
Thanks for all your words of wisdom and wonderful yoga!
It definitely helped that I went into labour with a more positive frame of mind...but actually I think what helped most was understaning the physiology of birth....the last month (I practiced) a daily yoga routine every night and I hav no doubt this helped Ailsa be in the right position for birth but also helped me build up my muscles and have more strength and ability to move around.....thank you for giving me a truly happier birthing experience...x
Throughly enjoyed my pregnancy yoga - keep doing what you do!
I have had a few yoga teachers on and off through the years and I have to say that I have enjoyed your classes more than all of them combined.
I initially joined Moira's yoga class as a way to stretch my aching muscles whilst training for a marathon. However, I didn't appreciate the mental, as well as physical, benefits of yoga. In Moira's friendly and laid-back classes I achieve a level of relaxation that I never thought possible and I can't recommend them highly enough.
Each time I retun to Moira's class after a lapse due to 'life getting in the way' I wonder why the heck it took me so long to return! I always leave Moira's classes so much lighter spiritually and mentally!
I just love going to yoga. It is bliss just listening to Moira's instructions and not having to think yourself or what the next thing might be. One and a half hours of 'me' time. Come away feeling great.
Yoga really helped with the birth of my 3rd baby. Using breathing techniques to zone out and breathe through the discomfort, only a couple of puffs of gas and air were needed. I felt so much more in control of my body than I had previously done in my other two births. She has also gave me information on how to ease pregnancy pains and niggles through moving my body in different ways thus not putting weight on affected areas etc. In day to day life the relaxation and breathing techniques have helped me greatly in times of anxiety. I cannot thank Moira enough.
I can honestly say that your yoga classes contributed hugely to having such a good pregnancy and having a good mental attitude for labour. I went from being terrified of childbirth to looking forward to it! I will definitely be back for the next one!
Thank you so much for all the yoga/breathing that you taught me, it helped so much in labour and I ended up having a very natural, calm and relaxed birth.
To be completely truthful I didn't realise the full benefit of the yoga I had been doing until I was in labour. I went along week after week. Often feeling very relaxed post yoga and enjoying the social side of meeting other mums-to-be. When I was in labour it was all systems go! I remember thinking I had to try and stay on my feet as long as I could. (I'm pretty sure I could hear Moira telling me to let gravity help me with the task at hand) I drew lots of figures of 8 with my hips. I remembered most of the breathing exercises which were immensely helpful during established labour. My contractions didn't have a build up and down. They were one after another but I focused on each breath instead and it really helped keep me calm. I am adamant that yoga was the foundation of a 4 hour labour, start to finish.
