Hi! I’m Lisa and I live in Leicester with my husband Tom and (nearly) 4 year old son Theo. I started attending Yogabellies for Pregnancy classes when I was pregnant with Theo in 2016. Having practiced yoga on and off for many years prior to falling pregnant, I knew that I wanted to attend regular classes during my pregnancy to maintain my fitness but also to switch off from my corporate day job.
I was very quickly drawn into YogaBellies, the classes made me feel at ease but I also went home each week with an abundance of knowledge about pregnancy, birth and impending motherhood. It wasn’t until I had given birth to my son that I realised how much of an impact the Yogabellies classes had on my birthing experience and was excited about starting back with my new side kick in Yogabellies for Mum and Baby classes.
After such an incredible experience attending Yogabellies classes, it felt natural for me to train as a teacher in 2017 and join the Yogabellies team! I have now been teaching for three years and am privileged to run YogaBellies Leicester and teach Yogabellies for Pregnancy, Mum and Baby, Baby Massage and Yogabelles for Women. I have so much passion for each class and one of my favourite things about teaching is seeing the friendships that are formed within the classes.
Outside of Yogabellies I am fortunate to be able to spend lots of time with with son who I regularly like to teach new postures. I also love cooking, travelling, fashion, attending yoga and body balance classes and the occasional glass of gin with my friends!
Yogabellies has completely transformed my life and it is an honour to be part of such an amazing community 💕
