The focus of our Pregnancy Yoga classes are to provide a safe space for you to learn, strengthen, relax and meet other mamas.
Throughout are Pregnancy Yoga classes, our qualified Pre and Post Natal Yoga Teacher Kelly will weave information about the ways in which your physical body is adapting and changing during your pregnancy.
Kelly will teach you postures that can help you to stabilise and activate the muscles around your pelvis, back, groin and legs as well as postures to aid relaxation in these same areas and help ease any aches and pains across the body too.
Kelly will talk about the hormones that are released during pregnancy and the role that they play.
Kelly will also teach you various different breathing techniques that can help you to reduce nausea, aid sleep and when the time comes to birth your baby, can help you to find ease during serges.
Pregnancy Yoga is an opportunity to connect with your ever changing body and your growing baby.
It is the ideal way to welcome some feminine rituals, celebrate your beautiful and amazing bodies and to bond with your baby.
For this class, have lots of cushions, a blanket or two, a belt or dressing gown fabric belt, (yoga blocks and a bolster if you have them) and either a birthing ball (stability ball) or a stable chair.
You are welcome at any stage of pregnancy as long as you have been cleared to exericse by your doctor.
The aims of this class is to give pregnant women an overview of mobility, postural exercises and relaxation techniques to help during pregnancy.
Please note this is a generic program where you will be given a few options to help you work within your own limits. However, every women’s pregnancy is unique to them and you must work within your own comfort levels.
If you are in pain or have any medical conditions you are concerned about please follow the advice and guidance of your medical team and seek assessment from your midwife, physiotherapist or doctor.
