Helena trained to be a doula after the birth of her daughter Ana Mary in 2007. She realised that she had a tremendous passion to help and support new pregnant mothers through this amazing journey from woman to mother.

A doula is a woman who assists and serves women through labour, birth and during the postnatal period. Doula’s support you physically and emotionally and are becoming a popular and sought after beautiful gift to mothers.

Helena is not an active birth doula or post natal doula, she chose to blend her doula knowledge in with her pregnancy nutrition expertise, and prenatal yoga training, to offer the full informative pregnancy pampering package.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal yoga is the most supportive and wonderful way to feel great during pregnancy.
Pregnancy is a transformational time for any woman and prenatal yoga can help to support your physical and emotional needs.
Prenatal yoga strengthens you, increases your body awareness and assists your breathing and all important inner relaxation during its sessions.
Helena isn’t teaching prenatal yoga at the moment as she can’t find the right venue but is holding some workshops in Letchworth so check out her events page for info.
As a nutrition expert and doula, Helena is able to give advice and support when needed to some popular topics such as massage, fatigue, energy levels, stretch marks etc…
Helena encourages an open forum during the classes so that pregnant mums can share how they are feeling to really know that they are not alone!
After Helena’s pregnancy and birth with Ana Mary she realised that prenatal was one of the most important parts of her week during pregnancy.
A special time to be one with your new growing baby and to find deep awareness and stillness is a beautiful way to over ride all the stresses that life brings.Helena also has a new Pregnancy Blog Site that is personal to her own pregnancy journey as she is pregnant again aged 43!What a Real Mum says:
I attended Helena’s antenatal yoga classes for the second half of my pregnancy which really helped me keep the wheels of my body oiled, especially as I grew larger and heavier. Since I was expecting twins I became big quite quickly, and although most other exercise was uncomfortable, including walking, Helena’s yoga allowed me to continue to have some physical expression and get my heart beating.

The class starts with breathing and gentle movements which relaxes and frees […]

Yoga Benefits

Anyone and everyone can benefit from yoga no matter what or where you are at in life!

Yoga has been developed in the west mainly as a physical practice, but we often forget that yoga postures were designed to detoxify and purify the mind and body; and also to open the hips so that sitting still in meditation was possible for long periods of time. 

Yoga translates as union. Union with mind, body, breath and soul.
Finding oneness and stillness within yourself is an amazing gift and one that yoga boasts through practice and gentle tuition.

The art of totally relaxing and letting go is something that can be felt through time and is something that can be gained during a yoga holiday or retreat. The practice of Yoga Nidra has an amazing affect and benefit to body and mind, and is often used a lot during week long retreats and holidays.

Learn to relax and breath first so you can really feel your breath and body, then practice physically. Feel the difference… it really is amazing!

Helena’s yoga combines detailed and strong movement and postures with meditation and relaxing postures to allow the body to safely open and develop at its own pace. Yoga with Helena is not competitive and is open to all.
