Carly Town Yoga
Breathe, move, be curious...
Welcome.. I am Carly
..and after giving birth to my first babe in the autumn of 2021, I am loving teaching postnatal, baby and pregnancy yoga in and around Croydon and North East Surrey. I currently run Baby & Me Postnatal Yoga courses and Pregnancy Yoga in Whyteleafe and Kenley serving the Coulsdon/Kenley/Caterham/Purley area and am in the process of creating a postnatal evening offering. I adore sharing the benefits of yoga for pregnancy, labour birth and beyond, now with both personal experience and a further advanced postnatal teacher training under my belt. I am a qualified hypnobirthing instructor and will be weaving this in to my prenatal classes.
You will also find me leading the Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga offering at Croydon Yoga Hub as well as teaching more dynamic vinyasa and power flow classes.
My style of teaching.
Pregnancy and Postnatal - Mummy and Baby - Ashtanga Vinyasa - Power - Restorative
My intention is to create a space for calm connection with the breath, body and self. To provide a space that you feel safe to explore your body and feel reassured that wherever you are with your practice, is exactly the place you need to be. I will encourage you to be curious about your body and your breath, to be playful yet compassionate, to challenge yourself with kindness and to listen to your inner knowing, taking what you need from my guidance and leaving anything you don’t need behind. After all, it is your practice!
Expect a combination of anatomical and philosophical cues, constant reminders to breath consciously, variations to suit all abilities and poor Left/Right differentiation (I just can't make it stick!)

I am Carly, a Specialist Yoga Teacher in Pregnancy, Postnatal and Mummy and Baby, a Specialist Paediatric Nurse of 11 years with a postgraduate in Community Public Health, and a lover of all forms of movement and sport. I have always been an energetic, loving, inquisitive soul, curious about the world around me and wanting to bring joy to the people in my life. I love nature, in particular being in water and hiking vast expanses, and believe exposure to nature is pivotal to maintaining a healthy mental state.
I initially found yoga through heart break, grief and anxiety, in an attempt to rebuild myself I stumbled across an introductory offer for 30 days of practice, after completing my first class I fell in love with the practice and didn’t look back.
Over 10 years later, yoga continues to teach lessons of healing, connection, exploration, playfulness and finding those little snippets of time where only that very moment exists, in the present. And that for me is delicious!
The practice of yoga not only helped me to heal but also to reconnect with myself, those around me and my environment in a more meaningful and authentic way. I loved learning to move my body in ways I hadn’t explored before, working with my body with curiosity and reframing how I viewed myself and also my contributions and connections to this life.
I knew very early on that yoga would be integral to my life and that one day I would teach and share this practice with others. It combined my love of movement, my curiosity about life and my deep need to love and care.
Ow Carly that was glorious my love. Thank you so much. Also such lovely words you used, I think it must be my hormones and back ache taking their toll but I had a little tear over them.
Fascinating and gorgeous all at the same time.
