Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga is the perfect practice for pregnant women. Practicing yoga during pregnancy is a nurturing way of creating optimum health for mum and baby. Yoga helps with the physical aspect of being pregnant, through movement aimed at making space, energising, alleviating ailments and aches, maintaining strength and mobility. If you have been doing yoga prior to becoming pregnant you will learn how to modify your practice now. If you have never done yoga before, 90% of women who come to pregnancy yoga have never done any yoga either. You will reap the benefits the classes have to offer. Yoga also helps with emotional changes taking place during pregnancy. The classes are also a wonderful way to make new friends with other pregnant ladies and share valuable tips!

Laura’s pregnancy yoga classes are energising, uplifting, calming and relaxing. The classes will be tailored each week to the individual needs in the class. We will practice breathing techniques to help create space and prepare for birthing, go through various postures and movements and finish with a lovely long relaxation, to help you truly relax.

We recommend you start pregnancy yoga from 14 weeks onwards.

Did you know?

Did you know you are able to take time off work to attend a pregnancy yoga class? You are allowed paid time off to attend antenatal care classes during working hours when you are pregnant. This includes time travelling to and from the appointments or classes. Pregnancy yoga and relaxation classes can be included in the term ‘antenatal care’. Request the time off in advance with your employer and perhaps take a letter from your GP or midwife as documentation of your pregnancy or antenatal class.
