Suitable from 12 weeks / after your first scan
A wonderful class to help support your mind and body throughout pregnancy as well as preparation for birth. I practiced yoga during both of my pregnancies and found it so beneficial, making me feel more comfortable as my body grew and changed as well as helping manage my anxiety. I used lots of the postures and breathing techniques through both of my labours which really enabled me to feel calm and in control. Being pregnant whilst teaching my classes really deepened my experience of creating classes that nourish and support you during this unique time.
The class is a balance of creating strength and energy in the body with time to let go and relax. The sequences help create more space in your ever changing pregnant body with poses designed to ease common pregnancy complaints. Sessions also include helpful postures for labour, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques.
