Orishemma discovered the benefits of yoga and meditation over 20 years ago during her challenging early adult years. This instigated her journey on becoming a complementary health practitioner in multiple disciplines, including: homeopathy, nutrition and massage.
In 2002, whilst pregnant with her first child, Orishemma reluctantly participated in a pregnancy yoga class – this would be the catalyst that spurred her to train with the world-renowned Francoise Barbira Freedman, founder of Birthlight, in 2005. Since then, Orishemma has passionately continued her perinatal yoga training and expanded to children’s, teens and family yoga along with nurturing baby massage.
Now, as the mother of three children and a certified doula, she is in her final year of midwifery training at The University of West London with the vision of making perinatal yoga more widely accessible throughout the NHS.
“Orishemma’s classes emanate an abundance of joyous loving energy, celebrating the union of parent and child.”
Baby + Me, Yogarise Streatham
