PREGNANCY YOGA CLASSES

During pregnancy, yoga can play a key role in enhancing the experience of this precious time and empower the mother-to-be to have the most conscious birth experience.

 

Pregnancy yoga is suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners – helping women enjoy their pregnancy with minimal discomfort, cultivate breath awareness and strengthen the body in preparation for labour.

 

Yoga offers you the opportunity to connect with your baby, and you will leave each class feeling deeply relaxed and take with you relaxation techniques you can use during your pregnancy, birth and beyond.

 

Coming to classes is also a great way to feel part of a community of other women enjoying the same life-changing journey – often the starting place for deep friendships.   

 

You are welcome to start from the 14th week of pregnancy.

Be conscious of how your body feels and seek medical advice regarding any health issues. General guidelines are that you:

  • rest during the first trimester (unless you already have a regular yoga practice)

  • start yoga in the second trimester

  • continue your classes until before birth

  • take up postnatal classes after birth

 

It’s never too late to practice prenatal yoga! So whatever stage in your pregnancy, come along and experience the benefits of yoga under my care.

Classes are on Monday evenings in Bilton at 7.45pm and last for 75 minutes, ensuring you leave deliciously relaxed, recharged and connected..  Classes run in blocks of 5 weeks.  Spaces for this class are very limited and so will need to be booked in advance here.
