Pre-Natal Yoga


Recommended for students AFTER the first trimester (13 weeks).

The class is small, and individual instruction is given.

Learn to connect with your baby and to accept and feel at ease with your changing body shape.

Students are at different stages of pregnancy so for new Mum's to-be there is a chance to interact with other Mum's to be.

Focus of this class is on relaxing, breathing, stretching and strengthening.

Pelvic floor exercises are also practised.

The asanas (or exercises) can help relieve morning sickness, fluid retention, high blood pressure and backache - and at the same time build strength in the muscles and add mobility to the joints.

There is strong emphasis on restorative (supported relaxing) poses further into the pregnancy.

It is a good idea to check with your healthcare professional before commencing this class, especially if you have had complications with your pregnancy.
