Pregnancy is a wonderful time to practise yoga. It helps to keep the body supple without straining. Breath Awareness and mindfulness helps you to relax, improves circulation and will help to relieve the pain of labour in childbirth because your focus will be on the breath creating this hypnotic state. YogaBirth classes provide not ‘just an exercise class’, but offer pregnancy yoga together with a wealth of knowledge about pregnancy and birth. This helps you to prepare for the transition to parenthood, both physically and emotionally. Please note there will be no classes on 2nd April, 7th May or 28th May 2018

 

YogaBirth teachers offer regular weekly classes for pregnant women. Our classes include:

  • Yoga
  • Relaxation
  • Breathing – Hypnobreathing.
  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Refreshments and a discussion
  • Information about pregnancy and birth

 

YogaBirth offers a safe, integrated form of yoga, carefully adapted for women to practice from twelve weeks of pregnancy up to the birth. Adjustments and modifications can be individually tailored so that no previous experience of yoga is necessary to join a class.

Yoga brings a sense of mental well-being as well as physical well-being. Yoga helps you to relax and focus; by practicing yoga you can tune into the changes in your body as your baby grows inside you. Many of the common discomforts that might arise during pregnancy may be eased by the practice of yoga, such as:-

  • Backache
  • Pelvic pain
  • Heartburn
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Leg cramp
  • Sore ribs
  • Shortness of breath
