Jo MacCalla

Jo loves the effect yoga has on her physical and mental well-being, and loved it even more during pregnancy; the combination of gentle exercise, group bonding with other mamas-to-be and the deep relaxation and calm. A mama herself, she’s passionate about empowering pregnant women and helping them on their journey.

Feedback on Pregnancy Yoga:  "I really liked the structure of Jo's class – starting with the slowing of the breath, then movement to warm up the body and get the blood flowing, followed by exercises that are helpful for birth/pregnancy, with a visualisation at the end. There was some good advice about ways to calm myself with breathing and movement during labour, and I also found it very useful to get the details behind why certain poses are good/less suitable and also the yoga-background of some of them. Jo has a very calming and gentle voice & presence which is really suitable for the session, particularly after the stresses of work!" Taryn
