Clair McGill Lushtums Pregnancy yoga teacher

Clair McGill

Being a LushTums teacher combines my love of yoga and the benefits it brings together with my passion for positive birth. Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman's life but for some it can be daunting - I believe in empowering women and giving them information they need to make the best choices.

I have been practising Yoga for twelve years and as well as being physically beneficial it gives me a sense of peace and well being that I take into everyday life. In my classes I want women to have some much needed time for themselves, a bit of escapism from everyday pressures and most importantly confidence to trust their bodies and instincts so they are not afraid.

Marianne Koshioni 

I am a globe trotter, jam maker, photographer, snap chatter and life lover, as well as mother to the bundle of energy that is my son!

I believe in the importance of ‘you time’, for mental, physical and spiritual connection. I fell in love with pregnancy yoga during my own pregnancy and wanted to draw on my experiences and passion for yoga and meditation, to offer an environment of support, nourishment and a safe space for sharing. 

These classes aren’t just about yoga, but also connection, womanhood, motherhood, identity and awareness. I am really excited to be part of this amazing journey with you and look forward to sharing my passion for all things pregnancy, and hope we can have lots of laughter along the way.

Nicole Petrucco

I am a birth and postnatal doula, placenta specialist and mother to three lovely children.

I am passionate about supporting mums in getting the most out of this lifechanging experience, from conception to school, seeing it as an opportunity to grow and become empowered.

Yoga helped me through my second and third pregnancies, helping give me the confidence to birth my babies at home.

I embarked on my journey as a lushtums teacher to give other women access to the tools that helped me. The classes are much more than Yoga alone, they give women the opportunity to get to know and trust their bodies, increase their confidence in the birthing process, connect spiritually with their babies and with themselves, and bring quiet calm into the busyness of every day life.

I look forward to welcoming you to class and being a part of your journey, offering impartial guidance and nurture along the way.
