Dr Rehana Jawadwala

Fitness, Well-being & Nutrition Expert
Rehana Jawadwala comes to yoga with 15 years of experience in the health and fitness industry, both in the commercial sector (formerly a personal trainer) and in academia. She has a PhD in Sport and Exercise Nutrition, and currently she is a senior lecturer in Sport Nutrition at the University of Chester.
Being born in Bombay introduced Rehana to Yoga fairly early on in life. In the late '80s she discovered the Yoga Institute around the corner from where she lived. She didn’t realise at the time that she was stepping into the world’s oldest Yoga centre! From those very simple early morning pranayama sessions to her strong physical practice today, yoga has been an underlying constant as part of her collective Indian cultural and philosophical background.
Since her early twenties, Rehana lived in many places including New York, Auckland and Jeddah before settling in the UK. During that period she lost and found Yoga a few times. Her passion for yoga and meditation stems from its transcending qualities beyond physical performance. She was particularly moved to bring her skills as a teacher to pregnant and new mums after her own experience of going from an anxious new mum-to-be to a confident, accepting and fit new mum.
Rehana is a Yoga Alliance, UK certified pregnancy yoga teacher. She secured a distinction grade in her course. She is on the FEDANT register under two categories – Yoga and Nutrition (12679) – making her the first and the only (for now, at least) antenatal yoga provider with this accreditation in all of the North West of England.
Rehana practices and teaches under the continuity of care model. She provides fertility yoga, pregnancy yoga (also called antenatal/prenatal yoga), post-natal yoga, yoga nidra and meditation classes and tuitions in the city of Chester as @MummyYoga.
