I used the breathing & my labour went smoothly, the hospital staff couldn't believe it only took 5 minutes for me to deliver after I started pushing, Bikram Bravo!  I believe the yoga assisted in my healthy pregnancy & recovering after labor too. I hope more pregnant ladies can enjoy the benefits too - Krista Long

“Struggling to fall pregnant can be a huge emotional rollercoaster. BYL gave me strength and support through my journey. Maintaining my practice through my pregnancy gave me mindfulness to understand the changes to my body, it gave me a safe place to share my thoughts and be embraced by the BYL community. Breath, believe and receive” - Tracey Scott

"I am a personal friend of Jacki & was so fortunate to have her attend the birth of my little man Sam.  I found the breathing techniques we learnt in the yoga class to be so beneficial during labour & her coaching kept me on track to be able to have my very first drug free birth.  I would recommend pregnancy yoga to anyone who is wanting to get their body and mind prepared for their big day" - Trish Norton

Lucy Harper, born 3rd March 2016

"I practiced yoga before I fell pregnant and continued throughout my pregnancy, I even practiced 5 days in a row and went into labour that evening. The yoga really helped with my anxiety, regaining my energy and without my yoga techniques going without pain relief would've been impossible. My yoga helped me with a very straight forward and very quick delivery. Yoga gave me so much energy, without my yoga there would be no way I would've worked on my own as a hairdresser running my own salon right up to just a week before giving birth. Thank you BYL for giving me so much energy. There would be no way I would've done it all without it" - Lauren Harper
