YOGA FOR PREGNANCY & BIRTH

Yoga during pregnancy has many amazing benefits for both Mum and Baby! Come along and meet other like-minded expectant Mums and spend some time connecting with your baby.​ Suitable from 12 weeks.

Yoga asana helps alleviate aches and builds strength in your legs, back and abdominals to prepare you for labour and birth. All sessions finish with a guided relaxation (savasana), followed by a Q&A with myself (qualified midwife) in a relaxed environment. If you're never done yoga before, you are more than welcome!

Benefits of Pregnancy Yoga?

  • Attending a class provides a safe space for you to rest, relax and reconnect.

  • Helps you connect with your baby and manage anxiety and pre-natal depression.

  • Helps increase your confidence and boost self-esteem.

  • Promotes good posture which helps prevent lower back discomfort.

  • Aids relaxation - increasing your energy levels during the day and improving your sleep at night.

  • Yoga asana can make physical space, reducing shortness of breath in the later stages of pregnancy and making you feel more comfortable.

  • Aids birth by increasing strength and flexibility within your pelvic floor muscles and provides increased awareness which allows you to focus on relaxing your pelvic floor during labour.

  • Increases stamina and muscular endurance, which helps prepare you for birth and early motherhood.

  • Improves circulation in your cardiovascular and lymphatic system which helps to prevent leg cramps, varicose veins and swelling.

  • Releases tension in achy muscles, especially in the lower back, shoulders and neck.

  • Reduces postnatal recovery time due to your increased wellbeing.
