pregnancy

‘…experiences have clearly shown that an approach which ‘de-medicalises’ birth, restores dignity and humanity to the process of childbirth, and returns control to the mother is also the safest approach.’ Michel Odent, MD

Yoga classes that are specifically designed for pregnancy and create a place where women can relax, meet other local women and share their experiences.

Time to rest, relax and restore.
Time to connect, laugh and share.
Time to honour the emotional and physical journey of your pregnancy.
Time to prepare for your birth.
Time to just be still

Highly recommended by midwives, yoga keeps the body healthy and supple without straining, boosts energy, relieves stress and anxiety, and promotes restful sleep. This yoga practice is very sensitive, nurturing and suitable for all stages of pregnancy.
Gentle yoga poses help to alleviate common pregnancy problems, develop awareness of changes in the pelvis, support good posture and foetal positioning. Each session starts with a calming meditation and ends with a deep relaxation.
No previous yoga experience required.
