Tara Thompson – Yoga – Reflexology – HypnoBirthing – Doula – RMT

Hi I’m Tara, a women’s yoga specialist and the owner of The Little Yoga House.

During my 1st pregnancy in 2012, yoga became the highlight of my week and soon an unmissable part of my life, encouraging me to take the leap into teaching after the birth of my 2nd son 10 years ago.

I trained in 2014 with YogaBellies specialising in Yoga for Women and Children. I have such a thirst for knowledge regarding the pre and postnatal periods as I am constantly inspired by the Women and children attending my classes.

Since the birth of my 3rd child, practicing yoga helps me to find balance and bring some calm amongst the chaos of being a busy mum and running a business.

I have been offering Yoga classes in the Belfast area for 10 years now and am always so grateful and humbled by the lovely Community that has flourished in Belfast during this time.

I am also a Doula, HypnoBirthing Educator & Reflexologist and love offering Emotional & Practical Support throughout Pregnancy, Birth and Motherhood.

The studio supports women of all life stages and we have something for everyone.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like more information on any of the classes or services in The Little Yoga House, I also offer 1:1 sessions in all that I do.

Samantha Hoi Kei Lo – Massage

I am the owner of A Luxurious Experience Belfast and have always had a passion for massage from a very young age, after finishing school I went to gain my qualification in Beauty Therapy, Reflexology, Crystal Massage, Sports Massage, Indian Head and Pregnancy Massage, and intend to add more qualifications to my list.

My goal is to tailor the client’s experience based on initial interview information, as well as feedback during the treatments, to ensure the client’s comfort and satisfaction. I am mindful of the overall experience – using only the finest oils and lotions. Lighting, music and decor are used in the room to complete the comfortable environment and enhance the client’s overall massage experience.

With over 13 yrs experience, I have massaged different types of people from children to sports athletes, so what ever treatment you receive you will be in great hands.

Samantha works daily in ‘The Cosy Room’ in the studio. Contact her directly through her website or mobile 07445994304 for all enquiries and bookings.

  • Breastfeeding Support
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Carol Smyth – Breastfeeding Support – CBT

Hi I’m Carol Smyth,

I am an IBCLC (lactation consultant) and CBT practitioner.  My journey into this work began after I had my first child.  Like so many of us, before I had my first baby I was completely naïve to the difficulties that new families can experience when feeding and caring for their babies.  The support that I received inspired me to want to help others, and to completely change career.

I have over 10 years experience in supporting new families with feeding issues.  My aim in working with parents and babies is to meet you where you are, to understand what is happening for you and your baby and to help you to reach goals that work for you.  I understand the stress and anxiety that can come from difficulties with feeding, or with parenting a very unsettled baby and all baby consultations also include an element of mental health support.

I also offer CBT (Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy) sessions separately.  These may be used during the perinatal period (for either parent), but also at any other stage of your life.  CBT is the NICE recommended therapy for depression and many anxiety disorders.

In both parts of my work – CBT, or feeding / unsettled baby difficulties I offer a non judgemental, compassionate approach, guided by what you want and need at that time.

Carol works on Fridays in ‘The Snug Room’ in the studio. For more info or to book contact me through my website or mobile 07517 406683

Nicole Schlögel – Aromatherapist – Massage- Yoga

I love all things pregnancy and birth and I specialise in body work and movement for birth!

I help my clients have a healthy and active pregnancy so that they can look forward to giving birth to their babies with joy and anticipation. 

I have been an aromatherapist since 2001 and was a midwife for 18 years. Yoga informs all of my work with my pregnant clients (and my life in general 😊)and I am a Hatha Yoga & HypnoBirth Teacher, too. 

Essentially birth sessions are intimate and personalised aroma massage treatments combining pregnancy yoga with aromatherapy massage. This can address pregnancy aches and pains, support your baby’s positioning or it can be a special treat. 

Nicole works on Tuesdays in ‘The Snug Room’ in the studio. Follow this link to book your Essentially Birth Session.
