Melissa - Pregnancy Yoga Teacher
"Hi, I’m Melissa and I teach pregnancy yoga in Burton-on-Trent and Swadlincote (Overseal) with Mama Blossom.
I moved to Burton in December 2020 and very soon found I was expecting baby number 2. I’m a qualified yoga and pregnancy yoga teacher and after joining Rebecca’s classes through my own pregnancy, I became part of the Mama Blossom team in 2021 not long after the arrival of baby number 2.
From my very first class, I loved what mama blossom had to offer. The classes were really inclusive for all mums, whether completely new to yoga or very experienced, and from breathing, to relaxation to education I got so much from every single class and so much I wish I had known with my first baby. The small class sizes really helped to build a lovely community which I was incredibly grateful for especially as I was completely new to the area, I am still in touch with other mums from my pregnancy classes today.
So now I want to give to mums the same experience. I am passionate about bringing the village community back, helping women to stay active throughout their pregnancy, tools to connect to their breath and to baby and to find some ‘me time’ through relaxation. I always want to empower women to feel like they can make informed choices that are right for them, learn how to trust their body and how amazing it is throughout pregnancy and birth.
You will find me running Pregnancy Yoga classes in and around Burton on Trent and Swadlincote. My classes are relaxed and down to earth and I aim to create a fun, warm and nurturing atmosphere, helping women to have the most positive birthing experience they can. I look forward to welcoming you in to classes soon.
Interesting fact? I’m a professionally trained dancer and barre concept teacher and my ideal ‘me’ time is a glass of wine, a bag of kettle chips and a good box set!
I did a block booking of pregnancy yoga and have just finished coming upto 28weeks. It was so nice to be surrounded by a lovely group of ladies all going through similar experiences. Mel was my teacher and she was so calming, knowledgeable and friendly! I’ve learnt some amazing techniques for breathing, pregnancy prep and stretches that will help me throughout the rest of my pregnancy. It forced me to have some down time and time out from day to day stresses and think it’s really good value for money! Thanks Mel I’d highly recommend to any new mums to be!
