"I attended Aqua-Natal Yoga from 16 weeks pregnant; I was struggling with pelvic pain, nausea, tiredness. Working and looking after my two year old meant life was busy. Aqua-natal class each week weren't just a good workout, they were also a wee oasis of calm; time to relax, breathe and enjoy. I loved how amazing I felt after class, how well I slept and I also enjoyed meeting lots of other mums to be so I love that we now offer these fantastic classes to pregnant women."

What Our Cutomers say

I attended the aquanatal classes at Damhead with Megan for most of my 2nd and 3rd trimesters. I really enjoyed keeping active by taking this class, in particular I loved the relaxed atmosphere, the private pool, meeting other preganant ladies and the weekly chats and advice we all shared. I highly recommend taking this class it defo did wonders for my pregnancy x

I would highly recommend this class! I had been struggling with hip pain especially during the night, since attending this class my pain has gone. Really enjoyable & relaxing and feel great after it. Always a lovely bunch of girls also and Megan is great!

Caroline Watt

I have really enjoyed the aqua yoga classes with Megan since 20 weeks pregnant. Wednesday evenings were the highlight of my week for half of my pregnancy and I would highly recommend them to all pregnant ladies. I suffered with really bad spd and being in the water helped a lot, it was so relaxing but also good exercise! I look forward to starting baby swimming classes soon!
