Description:

Yoga for Pregnancy:
These very popular classes are suitable from 12 weeks onwards - no need to have done yoga before. Gentle yoga stretches, breathing & relaxation techniques plus time to discuss various topics about pregnancy, labour, birth and early postnatal period.

The aim for these classes is for you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time, whilst improving both your physical and emotional well being and your chances of having a positive birth experience. Women who do Yoga For Pregnancy classes report improved sleep, reduced aches and pains, increased flexibility, improved posture and greater body awareness - thereby building their confidence in themselves and their bodies.

For those who are already mothers, the class is a time to relax, concentrate on the new baby, and prepare for this birth. For first time mothers, there will be lots of practical tips, opportunity to meet others and ask questions. Perhaps most importantly (just as with all NCT classes) you can make new and lasting friendships.

Birthlight Mother & Baby Yoga:
Birthlight Mother & Baby Yoga uses original sets of yoga practices, many of which are now mainstream, that are uniquely suited to help you regain your core-strength, your figure, emotional well-being and overall fitness after birth by restoring tone to the deep muscles of the pelvis and lower back. They can be started at any time after birth (1:1 at home in the first 6-8 weeks and at Bromham Social Centre following your 6-week postnatal check). We work towards 'closing' the body, re-knitting abdominal muscles and building strength and stamina. Mother & Baby Yoga sessions use Pranayama (yoga breathing), helping to keep you calm, inducing deeper sleep and reducing postnatal fatigue. These practices are suitable for women however their babies have been born. Attendees will create a new foundation for better physical and emotional well-being at the same time as being energised from within. Babies are included within the class with specific songs, rhymes and play as appropriate. Mums enjoy the chance to have protected 1:1 time with their baby, improving bonding and helping their babies development. More dynamic yoga postures are gradually incorporated to make a safe transition to general yoga or other forms of exercise with long term benefits for women's health.

I have attended this class during both my pregnancies. I found the yoga really helped with my SPD, and was the one chance each week for me to relax and concentrate on myself and my bump. The breathing exercises really helped my with my homebirths. I recommend this class to all my pregnant friends 🙂

I attended the Holistic Birth prep yoga class run by Cathy Welch as a second time mum to be. The class consists of yoga, breathing, and relaxation. Plus the added benefit of sharing experiences with other local women and making friends. The gentle yoga exercises kept me supple and Cathy was even able to adapt many of the exercises to allow me to complete them with very uncomfortable SPD which was great. The breathing and relaxation element of the class was a very enjoyable and provided a way to allow me to really prepare for the birth. All in all-… Read more »

I attended Carhy Welch’s yoga class from 17 weeks pregnant to delivery. I hadn’t done yoga before and it was my first pregnancy so I was unsure what to expect, but I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Cathy’s knowledgeable and gentle approach made me feel like I was in safe hands, and the group was very welcoming. Several of the women were attending the classes for their second or third time, and I’ll certainly plan to go again if I have another baby. The yoga exercises were great for helping to keep my body supple during pregnancy and… Read more »
