Yoga involves a series of 'poses' creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement or more slowly to increase stamina and perfect the alignment of the pose. The poses are constant, but the approach to them vaires depending on the tradition in which the teacher has trained. Helps your flexibility, bringing greater range of motion to muscles and joints.

Pregnancy YogaThis class honours what a special time pregnancy is and offers a nourishing series of practices tailored to you at this time. We share experience, calm the mind and body through meditation, and work on postures that prepare you for your birth, especially focusing on building strength in the legs and arms. We'll also work on breathing techinques (pranayama) that will assist you in birth and can be used at any time to bring about a greater sense of peace and help you sleep. The class also helps to ease tension in the shoulders/back, and keep the body flexible and supple in a safe way.
We close with a calming relaxation, Yoga Nidra or HypnoBirthing inspired script (I am also a HypnoBirthing practitioner - see here) to aid your full relaxation.
Beginners to yoga are very welcome. It's advisable to begin classes after 13 weeks of pregnancy.
I am a fully qualified yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance and have completed Sally Parkes' 80 Hour Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training, alongside the Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing Training and Unity Partner Yoga™ for Pregnancy Teacher Training. I am also pregnant myself at present!
