These courses are really popular , I believe because they offer something unique amongst all the activities available for babies these days! A combination of the Birthlight approach to gentle parenting, my massage background, and my training as a British Wheel of Yoga teacher, means that I am uniquely able to guide the sessions to meet both Mums’ and babies needs.

My philosophy: You already have everything that your baby needs for optimum development: for sensory stimulation, we are beautifully designed to both stimulate our babies with our rhythmic voice, breath and movement; and to notice when they are overstimulated and provide the appropriate response! Connected and responsive parenting is at the heart of this approach. No external stimulus can possibly replace or better this! It is so joyful to see your baby’s response when you sing to them, do an action rhyme together, use yoga breathing and sounding, or move over them or with them! There are so many ways to do these things within the classes, and you will develop a toolkit of things to try at home to brighten your days together!

I have taught Mum and baby yoga for 9 years, Baby Nurture for 5 years, and I am a trainee course tutor for Birthlight (delivering the training for new teachers).

When i recieve your booking I will send out an info sheet with directions, what to bring etc .

Yoga Classes in Kingsteignton Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm

I will now be teaching a hatha yoga class at X10 Fitness two nights a week.

Hatha Yoga allows you to arrive in your body, get out of your head, and to leave the class feeling great. Because this is a holistic practice, not just ‘performing’ poses but exploring the body through a felt sense , working with the breath through pranayama, and with mudra and bandha (gestures and seals in the body which transform energy), with a background of yoga philosophy; this is a practice that reaches beyond the class and into your everyday life.

I am trained with the British Wheel of Yoga (300 hour Level 4 yoga teacher training) and through Birthlight (Well Woman Yoga, postnatal yoga). I have been practicing yoga for twenty years, teaching for 8 years. I am also a massage therapist and I bring this understanding of the body into my teaching approach, using physical assists to help you feel into and relax into the poses, as and where this is welcomed.

Beginners are welcome -it is not specifically a beginners class but if you are happy to go at your own pace I can suggest adaptions where needed. Please contact me beforehand for a chat if this feels helpful. jess@jaimaayoga.co.uk

Wednesdays need to be booked through X10 fitness, Fridays you can just turn up. More info HEREyoga-men-women-bodywise
