Debbie is a yoga teacher and experienced fitness instructor, who came into the pregnancy and postnatal world after experiencing her own pregnancy difficulties. Repeated miscarriage and unnecessary assumptions meant Debbie spent her first daughter’s pregnancy doing nothing. This ended with a long and difficult birth. Determined not to let that happen again, Debbie continued teaching as a fitness instructor with her second daughter and it was this pregnancy that ignited a passion that burns bright today. During Debbie’s first pre/postnatal education, she found out that she was still physically affected by her first pregnancy. Despite ‘bouncing back’ into her pre-pregnancy clothes, Debbie was unaware that the stressful pregnancy and difficult birth had left her with diastasis (abdominal separation) and other woman’s health issues. Since that education Debbie has spent countless hours studying fitness, yoga, health and wellbeing in all areas pregnancy and postnatal. Debbie started working for BabyFit in 2012 and very excitedly took over the business in 2017.
Kate Coulson founded and created BabyFit in 2005, after the birth of her first child. Kate, an experienced Anusara yoga teacher, made a life changing decision in 2011 to move with her family to the foothills of the Pyrenees in the southwest of France. Kate wanted to pursue a simple but rewarding life and this happened in 2012. Kate continued to handle the administration, bookings and website until handing over the reins to Debbie in 2017. Kate’s new home, Happy Coulson, is on one of the pilgrim paths that cross France on the way to Santiago de Compostelle in Spain and the family offer food and accommodation to pilgrims. Kate runs French and English yoga classes and teaches English to French children who come to stay during the holidays.
