Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga is one of the best forms of exercise during pregnancy and regular practice can help to support and optimise a woman’s wellbeing.

In our pregnancy yoga classes we incorporate postures, sequences synchronised with relaxed breathing, breathing techniques, concentration techniques and guided relaxations.

Posture work can help to improve overall fitness, strengthen musculature, ease tension and pregnancy ailments, and prepare our body and mind for childbirth.

Hormonal and physical changes during pregnancy can affect our emotions and energy levels, so in yoga we use breathing and relaxation techniques to relax, re-energise and rebalance.

Every birth is unique and regardless of how, or where we choose to birth our babies, the breathing techniques, visualisation and simple meditations you will learn in our pregnancy yoga classes can provide support during our transition to motherhood.

Pregnancy yoga can form part of your antenatal care and employers are obliged to allow you paid time off to attend a class. Ask your midwife for details!

Pregnancy yoga classes are currently small groups but will be expanding again this autumn. The bijou studio accommodates five in comfort, it has underfloor heating and is fully equipped.  Onsite parking, shower facilities and toilet.
