Before having her first child in 2011 Sarah Brassey was a secondary teacher and has over 5 years teaching experience. She has been practising yoga herself for over 10 years.
After struggling to find classes in her local area offering baby yoga, Sarah decided to start running classes in St Andrews herself and trained with Birthlight and Rainbow Kids Yoga, obtaining her diploma in Baby Yoga, and then qualifying to teach toddler and pre school yoga, children’s yoga and family yoga. Sarah has also trained with Uma Dinsmore Tuli, founder of Womb Yoga to teach postnatal and family yoga, and is a registered 200hr yoga teacher through CYS, a Yoga Alliance registered school. She has taught children of all ages and has had babies in her classes from as young as 6 weeks.
“I have always found it difficult to switch my mind off, but during my yoga sessions I found that I could find a place where these thoughts were unimportant and escape for a little while.
After having my first daughter I was keen to find a way to involve her in my yoga practice and was thrilled to find a local mother and baby yoga class. I began taking her along to this when she was 5 weeks old and really enjoyed the experience, but unfortunately the class was cancelled after a few weeks. However I continued our practice at home and found baby yoga would calm my daughter when she was anxious, help me to relax during a stressful day and give us some precious time with one another. I also felt there were physical benefits for us both. When my second daughter was born she started attending classes with me at 5 weeks old and has continued to do so, yoga is a big part of her life and the enjoyment she gains from the sessions is clear to see.
There are so many benefits to be gained from doing yoga at any point in life. For me, yoga has continued to be an important part of my life and both of my daughters’. As my eldest daughter has grown it has remained clear how much she enjoys her yoga and we have expanded our practice. Now as a toddler, she will ask to do yoga and move into various poses herself. She loves the toddler and children’s yoga classes and will often do songs and sequences from these at home whilst playing.
Having experienced the benefits of yoga as a new mum and having seen the enjoyment my daughters have got from our yoga practice I am keen to share all these benefits and excited to offer baby yoga, toddler yoga and children’s yoga to my local area.”
