Sarah Topping Lushtums Pregnancy yoga teacher

Sarah Topping

Sarah has been practicing yoga for over 10 years, including during both her pregnancies with LushTums founder, Clare Maddalena. She has always been inspired by the physical and mental benefits of yoga, but it was during Clare’s pregnancy yoga classes that she felt truly connected to her practice, and found an inner calm and confidence, which was amazing preparation for the birth of her children, and for motherhood.

The breathing techniques, relaxation exercises and movements tailored specifically for pregnancy and birth were invaluable. This inspired her to join the LushTums team in Brighton, and help bring the benefits of pregnancy yoga to other mamas-to-be. Sarah now lives in Ipswich with her husband and two children and is building a growing community of LushTums mamas in Suffolk, where she teaches Pregnancy yoga, and Prepare for Birth workshops.

“Sarah was absolutely fantastic, she connected well with both my partner and I, and really understood what mattered to us. We both learnt so much about the birthing process that we didn’t already know despite having already gone through it once. We both had the most positive birthing experience which became totally different to that of our first, despite there being aspects that could have been very stressful the whole environment remained calm and we both felt in control of the situation thanks to having all of the knowledge and techniques that Sarah taught us. I cannot rate Sarah enough, she is the perfect person to teach these classes, she has the ideal character and personality and ability to put you at ease. Her knowledge and teaching style is perfect and she has a warm and welcoming vibe which isn’t easy to find. This class combined with LushTums yoga really changed my entire birthing experience and I am so pleased I found it in time!”
