We are proud to specialise in Women’s fitness and wellbeing.
We offer Holistic Core Restore ® Programmes to women in all life stages who are ready to make the changes that support lifelong healing and wellbeing.
These training programmes are for women who typically have experienced some degree of pelvic floor, pelvic organ, backpain or core dysfunction and want to empower themselves through education and TAKING ACTION so that they don’t become a statistic.
Highly effective ‘movement – based’ programmes that extend the continuum of traditional Pelvic Floor and Core exercise way beyond kegels and crunches to ensure that your Pelvic Floor and the rest of your Core is fit to do its job when you need it most AND is re-integrated to its rightful place at the heart of your precious body!
iBalance Yoga classes with Denny are based around Hatha yoga principles of postural movement and alignment with breathwork, bringing peace and stillness to the body and mind.
Encompassing a holistic approach to living with yoga and meditation Denny believes these are the most effective tools to establish a feeling of well-being and a grounded sense of self-knowledge. Making a weekly commitment to attend classes will allow you to enjoy the full benefits of yoga and observe the positive changes it can bring to your life.
This is the perfect time to take up an enriching practice as you enter a new chapter of your life. Enjoy a gentle and relaxing pre-natal class allowing you time to support and explore the changes in your body throughout pregnancy. Denny’s class focus is supportive with slow stretching movements and breathwork designed specifically for pregnancy.
Radiate your light and shine bright.

Hi my name is Sarah Owen, Im a Mother of 4 children and run a successful business in:.
I work with clients on a 1/1 basis in my private Gym and also run Pilates classes throughout York.
My Aim is to Educate you into my world of fitness/Correction work to give you as much knowledge as possible, and to help you succeed in the future.
I’ve worked with many people in many different Professions who i have helped greatly.
Aqua-natal classes are perfect for mums-to-be as they offer a holistic approach to mental and physical well-being. Combining relaxation with cardio-vascular exercise, these classes provide the perfect physical preparation for labour in the soothing and cool comforts of water. Through the use of gentle exercises, we also introduce mums-to-be to movements in the water which can also be used with the baby after birth. There is an opportunity to relax and understand how the body moves and reacts to water, in preparation for swimming with the new baby when he/she arrives. We promise to pleasantly surprise mums-to-be with the immense benefits they will experience, as well as the fun they will have in the class.
It is all quite gentle, however, you get a great workout hence preparing your body for labour. What better way to make some new friends to share your experiences with too? It is possible to join at any point throughout your pregnancy.
Our 45 minute classes run on Mondays & Fridays from 7:30pm at the ROKO Health club, Clifton Moor, York. We charge £42 for a 6 week block of lessons.
Our centre is a focal point for all things pregnancy and baby – we have the best pregnancy and post-natal classes in York (we have won the Little Vikings Best Pregnancy Class award for the last 3 years running), we also run birth preparation classes and hypnobirthing courses, and host baby massage, and the home birth support group. Sophie is an experienced birth doula and mindfulness teacher, and Alison is a Women’s yoga specialist and mentor. Fran (currently on maternity) is one of the most inspiring teachers you’ll ever meet.
We have taught pregnancy and post-natal yoga to thousands of women over the past 15 years. There are several reasons why we have such a great reputation: our classes feature evidence-based discussions helping you make informed decisions – we are big supporters of women’s choices around birth – and our post-natal classes lead to long lasting friendships (as well as tea and cake!).
Booking and pre-payment required for all classes. Possibility to swap days and make up missed classes.

These Classes are a fantastic place to come and enjoy a good stretch with some flowing Yoga movements. They are wonderfully beneficial for creating a sense of well-being while helping you feel comfortable with your body, while pregnant. We will enjoy some deep breathing with specific breathing techniques for birthing. Pregnancy Yoga is a great way to stay active while staying flexible & mobile throughout.
There will be a guided relaxation towards the end of the class, that will leave us floating home…but not before we have a little social tea, chocolate & chat After class (optional) but a great place to make new friends

Turtle Tums is a specialist Aqua-Natal Yoga course developed in association with Birthlight. Aqua Natal Yoga is a beautifully effective pre-natal exercise with low impact stress using water resistance, buoyancy and adapted yoga poses in the relaxing environment of a warm water pool.
Aqua Natal Yoga prepares you and your body for birth by teaching you controlled breathing and gentle exercises, designed specifically for child birth only and is an ideal form of pre-natal exercise irrespective of your level of fitness. Maintaining fitness during pregnancy will also help you cope better with the birth and speed your return to full post-natal fitness.
The classes are 45 minutes and are suitable for Mummies-to-be 14 plus weeks to Childbirth. The courses run on a 5 week cycle up to 36 weeks of Pregnancy and then on a weekly basis up to 40+(5). Continuation up to birth is very much on your personal wellbeing, but is still very beneficial and safe in the preparation for the birth of your baby.
Our classes have numerous health and well-being benefits, but it’s also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded mums-to-be, whilst bonding with your unborn baby and having a fantastic and safe workout. And, when the little ones are born, the friendships can continue by introducing your little ones to the wonderful World of Baby Swimming Classes at Turtle Tots.
Wednesday Evening 8.00pm
