Our Mission

We want you enjoy this experience as fully as possible – so all our classes are designed to meet your individual mind, body and emotional needs session by session. Having time to relax and connect with yourself reduces stress, improves health and makes you feel more confident and happy. Making you happy, makes us happy!

Why LushTums?

Classes began in 2007 in Brighton, by founder Clare Maddalena, who has now worked with over 3000 women. The feedback received has been phenomenal. Classes have been helping women experience pregnancy, birth and all the new-ness of becoming a mummy more positively, as well as helping create a special community of support and lasting friendships.



Clare has now trained 10 LushTums teachers who are offering Pregnancy Yoga & Birth Preparation classes across Sussex. We are training more teachers to bring LushTums Pregnancy Yoga, Postnatal Mum & Baby Yoga and WiggleBums classes to more locations across the UK. If you are interested in training with us, get in touch for all the info.
