‘I did pregnancy yoga with Keeley from 16weeks up until my baby arrived. Keeley is so amazing at what she does and I thoroughly enjoyed every session. The sessions definitely helped me to relax and feel more prepared to give birth. I would 100% recommend Keeley and her classes’ Siobhan
‘Keeley’s classes are fantastic! Her knowledge really helped me to keep well and prepare for labour. I experienced painful back issues with my last pregnancy, I feel that the use of Keeley’s techniques really helped this time round. Keeley’s classes are informative and relaxing, I would highly recommend!!Thank you Keeley!! Xx’ Joanne
‘I went to Keeley’s pregnancy yoga classes when I was pregnant with my first baby back in 2018 and enjoyed them so much that I joined in again when I was pregnant with my second. I found the protected hour every Monday so special and allowed me time to focus on my pregnant body and new baby in the whirlwind life of being a Mum to a 2 year old. During the classes I knew that I was safely stretching and moving with my pregnant body and helping stretch out all those niggles and pains that I had and baby was always in a better position afterwards. The relaxation at the end was so good I fell asleep on many occasions! Being prompted to practice the breathing techniques each week really helped me to get them engrained so I could use them to focus my energy through labour and birth. I used the breathing techniques the whole way through labour along with Keeley’s advice to keep wiggling which helped me feel calm and in control of the situation. I definitely feel this helped my labour to progress quicker than with my first where I was lying on the bed with baby being monitored and allowed me to have the home birth I dreamed of. Using the breathing techniques has also been a great parenting tool when the toddler is being a diva and pushing all the buttons.I’ve recommended Keeley’s class to pregnant friends and would recommend it to anyone who’s pregnant as I’ve found it so useful in my pregnancies. Thank you Keeley!’ Heather
