My Mummy & Baby Yoga classes offer relaxing and rejuvenating sessions especially designed for post-partum mummies and their new babies. My aim is always to guide and help you adjust your exercise routine to include your new baby and grow in confidence as you exercise together.

The classes last around an hour and involve gentle yoga stretches and postures for mums to aid recovery post birth, to increase flexibility and stamina and to restore integrity to the spine, the core and the pelvic floor and always at a pace that suits you and your baby. I always include some gentle baby yoga too. This promotes a sense of wellbeing, whilst soothing and bonding for you and baby.

Yoga provides a wonderful resource for you and your baby that allows you to deal more positively with the life changes that motherhood brings, dealing more positively with stress and encouraging mindful relaxation and self-care. Something that can so easily be over looked with new motherhood.

Benefits of Mother and Baby Yoga:

* Strengthening and toning your muscles, especially abdominals, pelvic floor and back.

* Encouraging you and baby to find time and space for relaxation.

* Using the breath to increase calm and confidence.

* Improving your sleep.

* Promoting understanding of your baby’s development.

* Engaging and bonding with your baby.

* Meeting other mums and sharing time together

No yoga experience required and you’re welcome to join after your 6-8 week GP check (Or 10 weeks post C-Section Birth). I have all the equipment you’ll need, just bring a blanket and a toy for baby, water to drink and a sense of humour. My classes are fun and friendly and I look forward to welcoming you to YOGA for 2.

YOLO Dance


I am Valentina Hynes.

Becoming a Mum changed my life in ways I hadn’t ever imagined. Suddenly, I had this little human to care for, fat from the pregnancy that wouldn’t budge, mood swings, etc.

Dance became a lifesaver. I could soothe my baby to sleep with rhythmic moves, I got smiles and coos when he liked a song or certain moves I made, I felt happier and I quickly got back in shape.

Now, I have another baby and I want to share this magical journey with you through YOLO Dance.

I offer:

•  Fitness dance routines modified to suit you and your little one (a fusion of hip-hop, rhythm and African dance).

•  Refreshments

•  A soft play area for when your Little One gets bored

•  You could also win vouchers for consistent attendance from Prams Lullaby, My Life Pool, LKN Therapy, Charlotte Nelson Photography and Revolucion de Cuba.

Simply do a block booking of 4 classes for £25.

Join me, Let’s build a community together, where we bond with our little humans, fight the blues, get fit and create magic.
