“Tess is a brilliant yoga teacher!”
Tess is a brilliant teacher. Her classes are full of beautiful flowing sequences and she gently guides you through helping to keep you totally absorbed in the movements of the body and the breath. I come out of her classes feeling completely relaxed and uplifted.

“She helped me prepare my mind and body so I felt empowered and ready to birth my baby.”
Tessa is one of the most naturally caring and down to earth people I have had the pleasure of knowing and she certainly fits the Doula role so well. She was my Doula for the birth of my son and I literally don't think I would have ended up with the most natural relaxed, and quite fast! birth that i had, if it wasn't for all her hard work. She literally prepared my mind and body so I felt empowered and ready to birth my baby. With her help I ACED it! Thanks Tess... Nina x .

"I'm amazingly glad she was there to enhance and share the birthing experience with us. I would highly recommend Tess to anyone considering a Doula."
At first when Natasha mentioned the idea of the Doula I wasn’t sure about the idea, I didn't know what benefit we would get from it: but after having met Tess for the first time I found that she brought a great deal of knowledge, reassurance and support to whole process of preparing for child birth. When Natasha went into labour, after a quick text Tess arrived at the hospital almost as soon as I did, and I found her presence there through the whole process invaluable. She was there for the full 19 hours of labour and was an amazing support to Natasha, but also to myself. In what can be a somewhat hectic and crazy environment, she helped provide reassurance and support and I'm amazingly glad she was there to enhance and share the birthing experience with us. I would highly recommend Tess to anyone considering a Doula.

“Tess made the world slow down for a while - a dream come true!”
I attended my first ever Yes Yoga pregnancy and birth preparation session last week and I absolutely loved it! My pregnancy has been wonderful but a bit hectic, and Tess made the world slow down for a while - a dream come true! I left the room totally chilled and at one with my baby. The stretches were gentle but perfect for easing out some of my strains and I was later aware of the information and mindful practices she weaves into the classes. I can't wait for the next session!

"Tess's classes are excellent...”
For many of the past 17 years as I've grunted and groaned through triathlon training, well-meaning advice to add yoga to the mix has fallen on deaf ears. I wish I'd acted long ago. Tess's classes are excellent; warm. welcoming, supportive, positive anda lot more physically challenging than reticent, cynical me had expected. I've usually approached exercise as strengthening from the outside; Tess's effusive, knowledgeable, down-to-earth tuition has shown me how to build from the inside out. Really an hour of yoga with Tess is sixty minutes well spent. whoever you are.
"A Great start to the week!.”
I haven't done Yoga for over a decade but I really love Tessa's classes that have lots of room for different abilities and self-improvement. I really value the genuine, individual concern and the lovely flowing atmosphere she creates each week. I would highly recommend the Monday morning class at tribe porty! A great start to the week.

“ I recovered quickly and with a strength and energy I didn't have before.”
Tessa was a fountain of knowledge and support to me during all my pregnancies, especially the last, where her nutrician and self care advice helped me through a serious illness while coping with a new born on top of my two other young children. Thanks to her tips and words of encouragement I not only navigated a most difficult ordeal but recovered quickly and with a strength and energy I didn't have before. She truly cares, thank you Tessa

“She understands a womans need for community and support during the journey of motherhood”
‘Tessa is an incredible listener and offers valuable advice without a hint of judgement. She is thoughtful, empathic, very well informed and a cracking cook! A mother herself, she understands a woman's desperate need for community and support during the profoundly difficult and marvellous journey of motherhood.’

"Her Evening Yoga sessions leave me feeling invigorated in body and mind."
Tessa is a really friendly and knowledgeable teacher who I would highly recommend. She has an informal approach, welcomes questions and is so open to demonstrating and supporting you to develop your own practice on an individual level. After an evening yoga session, her calming voice and manner leave me feeling 100% more invigorated in body and mind.
