Hi there! I’m Sinead, a mum of two living in Cirencester, offering classes and services across Gloucestershire. I eat flapjack endlessly, I could always nap, and as much as I love the openness of the countryside here where I grew up, I also long for the beautiful welsh beaches where I used to live for some time in Cardiff, before settling back in the Cotswolds.
I adore my work and getting to meet such amazing families and babies every week. Training in teaching yoga 9+ years ago quickly saw me specialising in kids yoga, pre & postnatal and then baby yoga, baby massage, yoga therapy training, and doula training most recently.
My love for supporting families through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is a strong one, fuelled even more by my own birth experiences and seeing how therapeutic yoga can support this phase of life - for parents and baby. I feel incredibly honoured to do this work and be standing alongside families, helping to guide them through their own unique journeys, as a yoga teacher and doula.
My classes and my approach are nurturing, I've been told by many that I 'bring the calm' to many situations. I recognise that becoming a parent is a massive change on a physical, emotional and spiritual level, one that often encompasses pure joy and elation, alongside grief and loss, on many levels. I am here to help you navigate this transition, whether I am your doula or I'm holding space for you in one of my classes.
I'm also a photographer, focussing on babies and families, which is my artistic and creative outlet, where I am lucky enough to document people's journey in parenthood, and include this service in my packages.
Whether I am a small part of your journey, or I am around for the full ride, I hold a safe and calm space for you. My hope is that you feel more confident, empowered and supported in your own unique experience.
Please get in touch if you'd like to know more about the services I offer and connect.
