In the classes we will aim to focus on our inner and outer body needs at this time.
We will maintain an asana practice that will allow our bodies to keep supple without straining and give us vital energy boosts. We will practice ways in which yoga can help to relieve our stresses and anxieties and ways in which we can work towards meaningful relaxation and restful sleep.
Using tried and tested techniques we will explore how pregnancy yoga can help to relieve common minor ailments during pregnancy and how yogic practices can be used to help manage and relieve pain in labour and child birth.
Finally, we will practice yoga that can help you bond with your unborn child through breathing and visualisation techniques.
Yoga at any time in life will bring benefits to the practitioner. Yoga during pregnancy allows a unique opportunity for self nurturing, promoting physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing not only for you as the practitioner but your unborn child.
The classes offer a holistic programme of breath work, relaxation, postures, movement, voice/sound work and meditations suited to all stages of pregnancy, from 12 - 42 weeks. Pregnancy yoga enhances the vitality, mobility, general health and emotional well-being of the expectant mother; it also provides a valuable quiet space in which to form a bond with the unborn child and to prepare for birth – enjoy!
