Post natal classes

” I attended Lolly’s yoga classes while I was pregnant with all my children and I think it was the best present I ever gave them...

It was two hours of peace, support and calm – as well as the incredible nurture of the yoga itself.  I made friends that I still have, I learnt everything I needed to know about the birth, I felt looked after and cared for, and never felt so close to my baby.  I even drank herbal tea!  Lolly is an astonishing person – driven by a love for what she does and a commitment that women should be able to have a gentle pregnancy and an empowered birth.  My children and I owe her a lot. Thanks Lolly”.


” Lolly is an inspiring teacher. She has a deep understanding of the principles of yoga, coupled with a formidable knowledge of the birth process for both mother and baby. Above all, Lolly is a wonderful person who inspires confidence in the people around her and can make a major difference to the confidence of a woman about to enter the unknown journey into birth and parenthood.s Lolly”.

Lolly is a pioneer in the use of yoga in pregnancy as a preparation for labour and birth. She has developed unique communication skills passing on the power of yoga to pregnant women to help them through pregnancy and to cope with labour and birth.

Lolly’s yoga career of over 30 years has been dedicated to creating and developing the ideal practice for pregnancy,

labour, birth and beyond.

As a founder member of the Active Birth Movement in the 1980’s she campaigned for the rights of women to move freely during the births of their babies. Her expertise in this area led her to lecture for many years at Thames Valley University to midwives on the physiology of labour, birth and natural birth.

Lolly teaches weekly classes in Notting Hill, London as well as special “Birth preparation” weekends :
