Pregnancy Yoga Class
A fantastic opportunity to enjoy the benefits of pregnancy yoga, and meet other pregnant women. Take some time out of your busy week to relax and bond with your baby. Suitable from 14 weeks of pregnancy.
Yoga is increasingly recommended to pregnant women because it is a gentle way of maintaining or gaining fitness while reducing anxiety with breathing and relaxation techniques.
What makes these classes different?
I am a certified Birthlight teacher and my classes use yoga practices that are safest and most suitable for pregnant women. I make sure we have time to chat about how you are feeling and any niggles or issues (if you choose). I will support you throughout your pregnancy and support the decisions you make regarding your birth.
My class is accessible to everyone, whether you have years of regular practice behind you, or are completely new to yoga. I will make you feel welcome and will adapt any part of the class to your level.
How it will help you and your baby
You will learn how yoga can relieve some of the common pregnancy complaints you may be suffering from. We'll work on posture and alignment to help baby get into the optimal position for a smoother birth, we'll work on strengthening all the muscles you'll need during birth, and I'll demonstrate lots of useful techniques to help you cope with your labour. The movements we do will improve blood circulation, which in turn improves the flow of oxygen and nutrients around your body and directly benefits your baby.
At the end of each session I will lead a lovely relaxation which is a great chance to shut out the busy world and focus on you and your baby.
