Hello and welcome to Moonshadow Yoga & Birthing. I’m Briony or B and I will be bringing Yogabellies classes as well as postnatal doula services and hypnobirthing classes to the South Gloucester, Dursley & Severnside area of Gloucestershire from September.
I was brought up in Kent but have lived in Gloucestershire for 9 years. I have a background in Secondary Education but knew that I would not go back to it after having my son, Alfie, who is now 3. For the past 3 years I have been a full time parent which has given me ample time to think about who I am and what I aspire to be. My passion for all things pregnancy and birthing began – as it does with many – when I myself was pregnant with Alfie. I gave birth at the beginning of the Covid 19 Pandemic, and whilst Alfie’s birth and my postpartum were mainly positive, it made me realise the importance of two factors: ample preparation and continuity-of-care. This led me to explore how I could best help women to give themselves and their babies the best start to parenthood.
I have practiced yoga on-and-off since my teens, however my absolute burning passion is a relatively recent discovery, born out of the hardest time in my life, where my body finally succumbed to years of chronic stress and I realised I needed to make a change. Yoga has been my salvation, and I’ve realised the true meaning and value of “living your yoga”. This time in my life has instilled in me an absolute fascination with the brain-gut-body axis, hormone systems and holistic wellness, and from this the Yogabellies 300 Hour qualification seemed a natural progression to bring my passions together to make a career.
When I’m not on the mat, I am looking after our mini-homestead, growing vegetables or wild swimming.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to meeting some of you soon!
Namaste, B x
