Meet Kirstie

Hi, I'm Kirstie, I live in Chelmsford, Essex and I’m married to Steve, I am a mum to our 4 year old daughter and I have an 13 year old step son. 

I love anything related to pregnancy, birth, baby’s, being a new parent and yoga!

I love my work, it’s a genuine passion. It’s amazing when I see happy and contented families after I’ve spent some time supporting them. You must do things to make you happy, and the work I do fills me with joy on a daily basis.

I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years now! I feel a rush of excitement, but also a wave of calm every time I step on to the mat. Yoga has helped me in so many positive ways and I really want to share this experience with others. I’ve practiced most styles of yoga over the years but Ashtanga soon became my yoga style of choice.

 

Whilst pregnant I realised the benefits of a calmer style of yoga practice and it helped me with pregnancy related anxiety and physical aches and pains due to my changing body.
