What to expect
Designed specifically for expectant mothers, this class offers a sanctuary where you can practice yoga with confidence and comfort during your pregnancy.
Through gentle movements, intentional breathing exercises, and nurturing self-reflection, you will develop the tools to navigate the beautiful yet sometimes challenging moments that come with pregnancy.
My Pregnancy Yoga classes only have 6 places, and are filled with poses that aim to soothe the nervous system, promote relaxation, and bring comfort to your changing body.
Here are some ways in which Pregnancy Yoga can help with common pregnancy experiences:
🌼 Back Pain: As the baby grows, the extra weight can put strain on the back, leading to discomfort and pain. Pregnancy Yoga incorporates gentle stretches and exercises that focus on strengthening and stabilising the back muscles, providing relief from back pain and improving flexibility.
💗 Insomnia: Pregnancy can disrupt sleep patterns due to hormonal changes, physical discomfort, and anxiety. Pregnancy Yoga includes relaxation techniques and mindfulness practices that can aid in better sleep and relaxation.
🌼 Stress Reduction: Pregnancy Yoga focuses on deep breathing and mindfulness, which can help reduce stress and promote emotional well-being.
💗 Pelvic Floor Strengthening: Pregnancy Yoga includes exercises to both strengthen and relax the pelvic floor muscles, which can be helpful for preparing the body for labour and postpartum recovery.
🌼 Bonding with the Baby: Pregnancy Yoga encourages beautiful connections with your baby through meditation and breathing exercises.
💗 Preparation for Labour: Pregnancy Yoga will equip you with breathing techniques and relaxation methods that can be useful during labour and delivery.
Any questions then just ask.
Please bring a yoga mat.
Access: There is a small free car park behind the hall, and free parking on nearby residential roads.
