    "Pregnancy yoga with Georgie has been absolutely what I needed through all the stages of my pregnancy. I started at 16 weeks and plan to carry on for another few weeks (I am now 35 weeks). I feel like the classes have given me the best possible preparation for my labour, especially as a first time mom. It's a great all round class, and Georgie has a wealth of knowledge that she is generous to share. I've also benefited from meeting some lovely fellow moms to be along the way. I look forward to attending baby yoga with Georgie when I'm on the other side with my little girl."

    "We have really enjoyed Georgie's parent-and-baby yoga class, it's definitely the activity that my daughter seems to enjoy most during our week. It's a great mix of some yoga for mom and baby, with some great ideas that I use at home a lot to entertain my little one. Definitely recommended, very flexible, and thoughtful teaching."
