“I’ve found the yoga itself incredibly rewarding and relaxing – but mainly I’m so grateful for your kindness and humour which has fostered a really welcoming environment. Thank you so much.”

Hello! I’m Lucy, a yoga and movement teacher in York and Selby. I lead the pre- and post-natal yoga classes at the beautiful Stables Yoga Centre in York; a special time you can set aside each week to be yourself, and focus on you and your baby.

Our weekly classes offer:
– A warm, friendly space without expectation or judgement;
– Movement to help you feel comfortable, strong and flexible;
– Breathing techniques to feel centred, grounded and calm;
– Gentle meditation to help you feel confident and relaxed;
– A kind, mama-centred community, sharing experiences together;
– A place to ask questions, feel valued and supported during the transitions and transformations of mothering;
– A space to stretch out, set down your worries and breathe a little deeper.

I am passionate about creating classes that offer you a place to feel at ease, space to unplug from everyday demands, and tune in… to you. A place to stretch out, in every way.

You’d be so welcome to join us… you can try your first class for free!

Tuesdays, 7.30 – 9pm

Post Natal:
Mondays + Wednesdays, 11am – 12.30pm.

Puddle Ducks are award winning providers of swimming lessons to babies, toddlers, pre-school and school age children. Our classes are designed to promote bonding, water confidence and water safety in a fun and loving environment. We take your little ones through a structured programme designed to develop their natural affinity with the water and encourage them to learn to swim independently.

And although we have spent many years carefully developing our progressive lesson plans to develop swimmers, our teachers adapt every activity to suit each child. Our approach ensures that your child’s needs are expertly fulfilled – never forcing development, but rather nurturing it to ensure a positive experience and love of swimming.

Our baby and pre-school programme is offered through five levels:
Floaties (0-6 months), Splashers (6-15 months), Kickers (15 months – 2.5 years), Little Dippers (2-5 years) and Dippers (2-5 years)

We run classes 7 days a week at the following locations in and around York:
New Earswick, ROKO Health Club, Archbishop Holgate’s School,  The Crown Hotel (Boroughbridge), Energise hydrotherapy pool (Acomb), Queen Margaret’s School (Escrick) and Goosewood Holiday Park.

We also run Aquanatal classes, so you can start your journey with Puddle Ducks before your baby arrives!

ROKO health club York have been successfully teaching children to swim with some of the best swim teachers in York since 2008. They offer lessons for both members and non-members at an affordable rate.

They run swimming lessons every night after school from 3:45pm and both Saturdays & Sundays from 09:15am. Their choice to enrol a maximum of 6 children per class enables the ROKO swim team to deliver a high standard of teaching in a relaxed and calm environment. They feel this gives the children more 1 on 1 time with their teacher and more time to practice in an affordable group setting.

They cover stages 1-7 every day of the week and they also offer weekly intensive swim courses for beginners in the school holidays.

ROKO York currently have waiting list in place however, if you are on the waiting list and you take part in one of their school holiday intensive courses, it moves you to a priority list which will get you a place on their programme much faster.

The lessons are half an hour once a week. The cost is £39.50 for non-members and £33.25 for ROKO club members.

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun whilst learning to swim, gaining water confidence and safety skills.

With only 7 children in each class, only 1 lesson running at a time & the whole pool to ourselves, we have lots of space. In this environment I find my swimmers really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim following the progressive STA guidelines.

I  get to know all the children individually & adapt my teaching to suit every child. Your child will be enabled to happily progress at their own pace.

Classes are based at Carr Junior School (Acomb) and Robert Wilkinson School (Strensall), teaching from babies through to school age and beyond on various days, at various times. See the website below for more details and to book.

About me; I run a small independent swim school set up after training and teaching my own children to swim many years ago. I realised then that the whole goal to swimming success is learning through having fun!

I have over 16 years of swimming teaching experience and I am a fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher. I hold a Level 3 STA Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school, STA lifeguard certificate and have DBS clearance.
