Pregnancy Yoga, Mother and baby yoga and candlelight Mummy Yoga
Relax stretch and breathe Yoga classes
Here's an idea of what to expect at my classes, which are well-established locally and which I've been running for NCT for 7 years now-
We start with a welcome where we talk about different pregnancy / birth topics each week and then work on some breathing/ visualisation techniques to help you when in labour.
Yoga based exercises are an important part of each session you don't need any previous experience of yoga.
The main benifits:
• Reduced back ache
• Improved quality of sleep
• Reduced anxiety
• Strengthened joints and muscles
• Increased flexibility
• Increased blood circulation
• Reduced swelling from fluid retention
• Improved posture and body awareness
• Strengthened abdominal and pelvic muscles
• Improved digestive
These are followed by gentle massage techniques.
We then break for tea and my delicious homemade cake which gives you the precious opportunity to have a chat with other mums to be.
Finally, we end the session with a well-earned relaxation.
1 in 4 classes we use exercise/birthing balls which builds on techniques for labour and also variety of yoga postures.
A little bit of about me-
I'm a local NCT Antenatal Teacher, also qualified in antenatal and postnatal yoga. I trained for three years with NCT at the University of Luton so you can be confident that I'm trained to a high standard, and licensed rigorously by NCT- A trusted and evidence-based charity here to support all parents-to-be and new parents. I first got involved with NCT in 2005,having attended a local NCT antenatal course myself, and I've not looked back since!
I hope the above gives you a flavour of what to expect and entices you to find out more! If you have any questions do give me a call or e mail me.
Equally if you would like to book let me know when you wish to start.
