An East Lancs yoga teacher is to feature in a new documentary by Davina McCall about the contraception pill.

Tessa Clemson, who owns Tessa Clemson Yoga in Great Harwood, was contacted by Davina McCall’s production company after one of her clients, a yoga mum, commented on a Twitter post about using a contraception called Natural Cycles.

Tessa, who has just had her second baby, Bobby, was then asked by Pinstripe Productions to gather a group of mums who had used the app and found it to not be as effective as it claims.

The 35-year-old, who also has a daughter called Frances, said: “We filmed at my old studio in Glebe Street on March 27 for Davina’s new documentary called Pill Revolution.

“I was asked to get together a group of mums who had used the Natural Cycles app and found it to not be as effective as it claims.

“We filmed a discussion about everyone’s experiences, I then taught a yoga session with all the mums and Davina joined in too.”

Tessa, who has just written a book entitled Yogi Baby, about preparing for birth using yoga, and all the positives that can come with it, said Davina was lovely, and is passionate about women’s health.

She even got a shout out on McCall's podcast, Making The Cut, at the beginning of May.

She went on: “We filmed for the full morning then had a brew together at Holy Cannoli, where I gave her my book Yogi Baby and a selection of Tessa Clemson Yoga goodies.

“Filming was so exciting. Although we were a little nervous to begin, Davina and her team were lovely and put us at ease.

“The warmth, passion and dedication Davina has to women’s health and wellness is clear and incredibly aligned with the Tessa Clemson Yoga Studio and Wellness Space ethos and all that we do.

“This has been shown further through Davina giving a shoutout to Tessa Clemson Yoga and Yogi Baby on her podcast last week, and this week she mentioned Blackburn Birth Centre, recommending it for women in the local area.”

The documentary, Pill Revolution, will be aired on Channel 4 on Thursday, June 8, at 9pm and the trailer features Tessa and her friends.
