Prenatal, Postnatal and Baby Yoga
Mama2shape Pregnancy Yoga, Baby and Mum Postnatal Yoga, and YogaShapes Baby Yoga classes are taught by Kat Frost. Kat has practised yoga since she was in her early teens and has been teaching yoga for ten years, completing her initial Teacher Training course in 2006 and setting up Yoga2shape in 2008.
Kat was inspired to become a qualified Pregnancy Yoga teacher in order to ensure that pregnant students joining her classes were practising safe and effective yoga, and it was then a natural progression for Kat to train to teach Postnatal, Mum and Baby and Family yoga. After teaching Pregnancy and Postnatal yoga and Pilates classes alongside her regular classes for 6 years, Kat set up Mama2shape in 2017 following the birth of her first child as a specialised provider of education and support for prenatal and postnatal women, covering birth preparation, antenatal education, hypno-birthing, pregnancy yoga, postnatal mum and baby yoga and emotional support for women.

Kat has a clear and sensitive teaching style and ensures that all members of the class are getting the most out of their yoga class. As a highly experienced yoga teacher, she is able to adjust class content to meet the specific needs of students.
Mama2shape Baby Massage is taught by mum of two Katie Samways, who has a passion for helping new parents to have fun with their babies.
Katie massaged her own children as babies and found it helped her bond and spend quality time with them. Baby groups gave her a reason to leave the house and she met some great new friends along the way. She hopes that the baby massage classes that she teaches can do the same for you.
Katie completed her infant massage instructor training with Hands on Babies, whose courses are accredited by the Complementary Therapists Association, International Institute for Complementary Therapists (CThA), Independent Professional Therapists (IPTI) and the Royal College of Midwives.
