Please read all the practical details below before you attend your first class.
What to bring
A blanket for your baby to lie on, and a yoga mat for you (there are a few mats to borrow if you don't have one).
Aim to arrive 5 or 10 minutes before class (but not earlier as I'll be with another class, and the buzzer is rather loud!). Press buzzer 3 and I'll come and open the door.
Please leave your shoes in the area just outside the yoga room.
Keep your valuables with you at all times.
I provide peppermint tea and water, which you can take into the class with you.
Parking & buses
Paid street parking: £2 for 2 hours. Nearby parking is paybyphone now, but there are machines further up the street.
Buses: 2, 2A, 7, 25A, 46, 49, 49A, 95, 95A stop on Portland Road.
There is space for buggies inside the building, just outside the room we do the yoga in. It is not a secured room and other people using the building do pass through, so it is at your own risk. That said, we have never had any problems with the buggies.
Your first classes
Babies often take a couple of classes to settle in, so don't be surprised if your baby feeds, sleeps or cries more than usual (especially if they are under 3 months old) - they are just adjusting to a new environment. It's also quite common for babies to want to watch and suss it all out before they join in (quite sensible really!), but it's wonderful to see how they open up and respond more and more to the yoga and massage over the weeks.
My name is Fiona Tasker. I have been practising yoga for 24 years, teaching for 16 years, and training yoga teachers for 7 of those years. I have worked on and off with babies and children over the last 25 years. I am also a postnatal yoga therapist (see pregnancy and postnatal health).
I am passionate about supporting women and babies through these early months together - a time of both challenges and delights! My aim is to provide a nurturing and supportive place for both of you to explore this journey in your own unique way.
I look forward to meeting you and your baby!
