Pregnancy is an incredible, unique and personal time for a woman.  It is also a time filled with both physical and mental changes.  Practicing yoga throughout your pregnancy can be a great tool to help adapt and embrace these changes in a positive and relaxed way. Classes are ideal for all levels – from those new to yoga as well as those with more experience. 

 
Pregnancy Yoga classes are designed to help you feel your best and aim to:

Promote strength and flexibility
Increase energy
Improve circulation 
Reduce fatigue, stress and tension
Help to  prepare your body for birth
Offer time for you to connect with your baby

 

Pregnancy classes are a gentle yet dynamic form of yoga that promote vitality during pregnancy and build stamina and strength for labour.  
 

 

Postures are designed to help ease common ailments such as back pain, odema, sciatica, heartburn and Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP).  Poses help guide your baby into the optimal position for delivery and with practice your body will feel comfortable in these positions, which many women find to be very useful during labou​r.  

 

 
Breathing techniques used in class help to quiet busy minds and are especially beneficial during labour to help remain calm and at ease.  Breath awareness is a vital tool to stay focused, relaxed and remain in control of your thoughts and body. 
 

 

Group sizes are small to ensure each student receives personal attention and a safe practice adapted to your body and needs. 

 

Pregnancy classes are also a wonderful way to connect with other local mums-to-be for support and friendship during your pregnancy onwards.
