Specialist yoga classes for pregnant women,
suitable from 15 weeks to birth
A dedicated pregnancy yoga class will enable you to get the most from your yoga practice. Yoga asanas (postures) are adapted to take into account your pregnancy and your growing body.
Practising yoga during pregnancy will not only maintain your own health and well-being but will also bring peace to the body, mind and spirit of both you and your baby.
Other benefits of pregnancy yoga include:
Helps to build a harmonious bridge of contact between you and your baby
Yoga postures will help to create the flexibility, strength and stamina needed for labour
Maintains and strengthens the tone of the pelvic floor muscles
Relaxes the body and calms the mind
Helps to relieve backache
Helps you to develop an intuitive knowledge of your body which you will be able to draw upon during labour
Breath awareness techniques can help to relieve anxiety, fatigue and insomnia during pregnancy

I am a fully qualified teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga and I have been teaching yoga classes for over 3 years. I decided to deepen my knowledge of yoga during pregnancy by undertaking the post-graduate BWY Pregnancy Yoga module. I believe a dedicated pregnancy yoga class enables pregnant women to get the most from their yoga practice and is an excellent way of preparing them for birth and beyond.
