Our pregnancy yoga classes combine stretching, breathing, and relaxation techniques to offer relief from the common discomforts of pregnancy and to prepare the body for birth.
Deepen your awareness of your ever-changing body and mind as you prepare for the life-changing event of birth in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Whether you are a complete beginner to yoga or a seasoned yogi, or anywhere in between, whether this is your first, second, or sixth pregnancy – you are very welcome to come along and experience this nourishing practice.
What can pregnancy yoga help with?
It’s not unusual to experience a range of physical and emotional changes as your body and mind adapt and prepare for the arrival of your little one. Through a combination of specific pre-natal yoga poses, focused breathing, and long, guided relaxation, pregnancy yoga can help to:
- Improve the quality of your sleep
- Reduce worry and stress
- Boost energy levels
- Minimise aches and pains
When can I start?
You are welcome to attend this class after the 12th week of pregnancy.
Why do yoga with us?
All of our teachers are fully qualified and very experienced in teaching pregnancy and post-natal yoga – this means that they have at least a 500-hour qualification in yoga before even undertaking specialist pregnancy and post-natal training. Why is this important? We’ve done the work ourselves; yoga isn’t about glorified stretching, nor can it be taught over a long weekend – it takes time, teaching (and life) experience to be the best, and we all have that under our belts. You are in safe hands and we pride ourselves in this.
