Pregnancy Yoga in FromeSpace to release stress, get ready for birth and relax
My pregnancy yoga classes are now online and run TUESDAYS 7.30-8.30pm.
"Pregnancy yoga is such a wonderful opportunity to simply BE PREGNANT. To connect with your body and start the conversation with it that will carry you through birth and beyond into motherhood."Eleanor Hayes
I like the fact that it doesn’t push you so you take it at your own pace. It is a really nice group of people and nice to meet other mums.

I love the Birthzang Yoga class Eleanor offers. It’s a lovely way to break up my work week, and is helping me feel more aware of the changes to my body during pregnancy.
I’ve been attending regularly since I was 17 weeks and I really like the sense of community we’ve built and how open and welcoming the atmosphere is. Eleanor does a great job of making everyone feel valued.

Who am I?
Antenatal teacher, mentor & all-round good egg
I founded Birthzang after having an incredible birth experience that enlightened me that with the right tools and skills at her fingertips, any woman can have a positive birth experience.
I discovered my passion for providing parents with practical and non-fluffy information in my online antenatal workshops and classes about how to cope with pregnancy, labour, birth, and parenthood.
Throughout my day-to-day life, I find myself using your tips and tools and all sorts of different yoga stuff...it's brill!
I highly recommend Eleanor. She has a wealth of knowledge and is truly committed to giving each of her pregnant ladies the best individual experience, whether that be through weekly yoga or in a one to one or group class.
I began a series of private yoga sessions with Eleanor after having attended her Pregnancy Yoga classes for a number of weeks and having chatted to her about the position of my baby.
At that time the baby was lying sideways in a transverse position and as well as being very uncomfortable, there were medical interventions that I would have needed to undergo if she hadn’t turned by 36 weeks. In addition, I was also experiencing pelvic pain particularly when I walked or got up out of bed or from a chair.
Eleanor devised a series of three sessions incorporating some yoga poses that would help alleviate the pelvic pain and also some movements that would encourage the baby to turn head down. The sessions were very much tailored to my pregnancy and Eleanor came to my house which also helped hugely.
After three weeks the pelvic pain was gone completely and at 37 weeks an ultrasound scan confirmed that the baby’s head was down and engaged!
The sessions were both relaxing and enjoyable and I looked forward to them, knowing I would have an hour to focus on the baby and myself.
Eleanor put me completely at ease and always gently guided me to get maximum benefit from the movements, whilst keeping safe.
