OUR PHILOSOPHY

YogaBellas offers a unique, holistic yoga support system for couples looking for fertility support as well as yoga to support motherhood.

Mia and Kate are 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga teachers who have dedicated their practice to fully understand and appreciate yoga as a therapeutic tool for fertility and motherhood.

The type of restorative and tailored yoga we offer is not like what you might see in a “usual” studio, rather it is designed specifically for a purpose, drawing from traditional, as well as modern techniques, to support the mind, body and soul during a time when your mind, body and soul needs optimal nourishment.

We pride ourselves on being down-to-earth, practical and accessible to all levels.

thank you for being so supportive”

Kate Broad

Kate is a qualified Primary school teacher and worked in schools for 12 years. Beginning her yoga journey at 17 years of age, and having seen the positive affect that yoga had on her own mental and physical wellbeing,  Kate implemented childrens’ yoga into several schools with the belief that children (as much as adults) deserve the time to reflect on their day, get in touch with their emotions and explore their bodies as they change. Kate completed teacher training courses in Hatha yoga, Childrens’ yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa flow yoga, Pre and Post natal yoga, yoga nidra and Yin yoga. Having reflected during her own trainings and the time teaching classes and private sessions, Kate began to focus more of her time on teaching and developing safe and supportive sessions for women who were trying to conceive, were pregnant or had just given birth. In her spare time, Kate enjoys cooking and writing childrens’ books.

Kate can help with:

•      Fertility yoga

•      pre and post-natal women’s yoga

•      Yin Yoga to stimulate meridian lines and promote well being

•      Realistic supportive tips and guidance on how to improve your health step-by-step with yoga and a healthy diet
