Pregnancy Yoga



Pregnancy Yoga Weekly Classes & Workshops

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 had a wonderful time last night at my first yoga session. I was warmly welcomed, the other participants were friendly and I came away feeling relaxed and energised. Thank you!” GH

“I have really enjoyed the classes and feel a lot more positive about the birth.”HJ

“Susan’s pregnancy yoga classes were my weekly evening of calm away from busy life and I will really miss them now baby has arrived” JM 

Benefits of Pregnancy Yoga:

Pregnancy yoga is a form of exercise recommended by midwives, and has many benefits for your pregnancy body and in preparing you for labour, birth and motherhood:

  • keep the body supple and strong without straining

  • boost energy

  • relieve stress and anxiety

  • promote relaxation and restful sleep

  • provide you with breathing techniques and positions to use during labour and birth

  • relieve common minor pregnancy ailments such as heartburn, swollen joints and constipation

  • help expecting mothers to bond with your unborn baby through breathing and visualisation techniques

  • Breathing exercises to create space in the body, bring calm to mum and to introduce ways in which breathing can facilitate birth.

  • Helps you tune into your body and your baby.
