Pregnancy and Yoga

In Yoga for Pregnancy classes we will discuss and practise a range of techniques, some of these are:

Yoga Postures

These can help to increase strength, reduce muscle tension and improve posture awareness. You may find, too, that they also help to reduce some of the common complaints that occur in pregnancy.

Yoga and Pregnancy

Breathing Techniques

These can help to control the discomforts of pregnancy and of labour, as well as their wider applications in life.

Relaxation

This is vital in pregnancy, for both you and your baby.

Meditation

This helps you to keep calm and focused.

In addition to the practice of yoga we will cover various aspects of pregnancy. These could include birthing positions, breathing techniques for labour, or other areas which arise from class discussion.

Yoga for Pregnancy is a lovely space in which to take time for yourself, to connect with your baby, and to share your experiences with other women.
