Marcela de Leon Yoga/Mama Gives Light

I teach weekly Yoga classes and monthly workshops at the Old Schoolhouse in Morningside. My classes include All levels Vinyasa Flow, YogaBirth Pregnancy Yoga & Birth Preparation, Mum & Baby Yoga, and Active Birth Workshops for mums and dads to be.

Each class has a specific theme or focus, and offers a carefully designed sequence of poses, incorporating sun salutations, standing and seated poses as well as a guided relaxation at the end. These classes aim to support you re-focus and re-energise both body and mind. This practice will encourage you to find a balance in mind and body that works for you, whilst you gradually develop strength and flexibility. You will leave feeling strong, centred and relaxed to carry on with your day. Expect creatively sequenced classes where we will synchronise breath and movement, to help us release tension, build strength and restore the balance in body and mind. My classes provide a secure, intimate, comfortable and calm environment for you to connect with your baby and with your body.

In the YogaBirth Prenatal classes we also explore various exercises that come useful during labour for a more active birth. Postnatally, we can focus on gradually recovering and regaining strength. Through our sister website Mama Gives Light ( you can find out more about my work as a Doula and how I can support you during pregnancy, birth and postnatally.

I am here to assist you and help you maintain physical strength and flexibility, focusing on breathing, mindfulness and relaxation, regardless of your previous yoga experience.
