About Aquatic Harmony

Hello, I am Hayleigh

Whilst pregnant with my daughter Maisie in 2010, I wanted to join a pregnancy exercise class that would benefit my ever-growing bump.

I discovered the benefits of antenatal yoga and joined a weekly class, but I also wanted a pregnancy swimming class but could not find anything in Bristol.

I knew there must be other pregnant ladies wanting to be in the water and carry out pregnancy aqua natal swimming classes, so I decided to research, began my formal training as a Birthlight aqua yoga, and baby swim teacher, and have never looked back.

I love welcoming new mums and their bumps and babies to our classes and sharing the physical and mental wellbeing that our swimming classes bring.

Hopefully you can find all you need to know about our swimming classes on the website but please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions.
