An opportunity for you to switch off from the outside world and focus on you and your baby – creating a space just for you both. No previous experience of yoga is necessary. Our classes are designed to enhance and nurture your experience of pregnancy and birth.
Gentle exercises are practiced to help common ailments experienced in pregnancy. Breathing techniques, visualisations, relaxation and sound practices are explored, to nurture relaxation and help facilitate birth. This can support you to obtain a more restful sleep, enabling you to feel more energised.
Our classes provide a welcoming environment for you to meet other pregnant women and share your experiences of pregnancy and birth. Pregnancy Yoga nurtures the connection with your baby and are an opportunity for you to relax and have fun !
Pregnancy yoga postures build stability and strength, whilst softening and relaxing appropriate areas of the body – creating space. Yoga practices can be used to relieve pain in labour and birth. Together we will explore postures to support an active birth (which is explored further in our Birth Preparation Workshop with birth partners).
To obtain the greatest benefits we recommend joining classes early in Pregnancy and continuing them, so you experience a broad range of practices and your awareness and ability to listen to your body deepens. The practices become familiar and are better able to support you in pregnancy and birth – in a way that feels natural and most comfortable to you.
Suitable from 14 weeks of pregnancy, up until birth – prior to joining please check with your GP or midwife that yoga is suitable for you and your baby.
