Pregnancy Yoga classes starting Jan’20!

Pregnancy yoga classes have a powerful effect on YOU and your unborn baby. I shall guide you through this deeply personal journey which is a life changing experience for both you and me. We’ll cover breathing practices, strengthening asanas and adjustment modifications that help you feel a sense of calm, remedies for your physical discomfort as well as tools for you to use for a positive birth experience.

Starting Saturday 4 Jan’20 for 6 weeks you will learn practical techniques that can help you to improve circulation and give relief for feelings of depression, stress & tension. Whether you are a regular yoga practitioner or a complete beginner you will benefit from:

  • Breathing techniques (pranayama), visualisation, positive affirmations, meditation and deep relaxation to soothe & connect you with your own intuitive wisdom as well as aid a positive birth.

  • Pelvic floor awareness to strengthen & protect before & after birth by increasing muscle & tissue elasticity by enhancing the function of the natural pregnancy hormone relaxin.

  • The practices based on the elements (fire, wind, earth, air, water & space) which are designed to be tailored to your needs & enable better sleep & create space & help your baby into the ideal position for a comfortable birth.

  • Connect with other cool expectant mommas!

  • Stay for a nice cuppa tea & a slice of homemade cake.

  • Local experts in pre-natal services to come along & provide knowledge to empower & help you make informed decisions eg. doula, mid-wife, sustainability clothing, baby massage, breastfeeding, pregnancy massage, women’s rights in birth etc.
