Pregnancy Yoga More Info:
Classes are beneficial during each trimester and you can join the class any week from 14 weeks onwards. Booking is in 4 week blocks up until your last two or three weeks when its weekly. The more classes you can attend and the more practice you can get, the more natural and useful the practices will be during each trimester and during labour. My classes are small with a maximum of 6 students so the environment is friendly, relaxing, warm and cosy and all equipment is provided.
Pregnancy is a special time for you and your baby and many midwives say they recognise the value of attending specialist yoga classes during pregnancy. Because the hormone relaxin makes the ligaments more pliable, it is important, in order to avoid injury, not to overload or overstretch them, so during my specialist ante natal yoga classes you are encouraged to develop safe practices designed for each trimester. As one of my pregnancy yoga students you will also have access to practices that you can download at home. Because Yoga is an holistic lifestyle you are encouraged to consider all aspects of your well being and your growing baby, so whether you regularly attend yoga classes or you are completely new to yoga, my specialist pregnancy classes can support you at this special time.
