Pregnancy Yoga is a brilliant complement to Hypnobirthing. It helps mums-to-be to connect with their baby and their amazing growing and changing pregnant body, strengthens and keeps the body mobile, eases aches and pains, can help you sleep better and you also learn lovely breathing and relaxation techniques too.  There really are so many benefits and you don't need to have practices any yoga before, or to bit 'fit' or 'bendy' or anything! You can start anytime from 14 week, and it will benefit you right up until baby is born.


I teach lovely friendly weekly classes in York, and I also run longer Pregnancy Yoga workshops and mini retreats in both York and Harrogate. To find out more about them and book your place visit the Pregnancy Yoga page of my website -
