Pregnancy Yoga or Prenatal Yoga is a fantastic way to prepare your body and mind for birth and motherhood.
I'm offering an evening class that you can do in your PJs if you'd like. We will stretch and strengthen and relax during my online class.
The Prenatal Yoga classes comprise of a series of exercises that will help your body cope with changes you are experiencing and prepare you for the birth of your baby or babies.
I welcome complete beginners to yoga as well as experienced yogis to my class.
Must be beyond 14 weeks and you can continue up until birth. If in doubt talk to your care provider.
Pre-booking is essential so that I can send you a link to the class. I will also be sharing tips and content with attendees.
What is Prenatal Yoga?
Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility.
Pregnancy Yoga helps you learn to relax. Relaxation techniques can help you cope with the stresses of motherhood, but more importantly, the intensity of labour.
My classes give you time to yourself as you balance work and pregnancy. It's time to rest and important self care.
Flexibility is helpful if you are going to let your body open during birth. Prenatal Yoga postures can help loosen tight muscles and joints, allowing you the freedom to adopt what ever positions you choose in labour.
Keeping up with a regular exercise program in pregnancy is important. Carrying a child is like doing a mini marathon over those nine months. You need to keep up your strength for and help prepare your body for birth.
Many pregnant women feel their posture suffers from the additional weight of their baby and their new boobs. Prenatal Yoga can help stretch out and strengthen your body.
However you choose to give birth, pregnancy yoga can help. Whether it's natural childbirth through to a Caesarean section yoga can help to calm and soothe your mind as you prepare to meet your baby.
Before taking any exercise consult your caregiver. During the class make sure to listen to your body and be gentle with yourself.
The joy of an online class is that it is in the comfort of your own home. But you will still need a couple of things... Wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in. Use a yoga mat. If you have a couple of cushions, have them close to hand and also your favourite blanket. And of course plenty of water.
One of the many benefits of an online class is that you will have the link to the class to save if you want to go back and watch it again after the live streaming.
When you book the course or single class pass I will send you a link to the class. You will need to download Zoom prior to the class. So make sure that you give yourself enough time to do so.
I will ask that you leave your video on during the class so that I can make sure that I can help you with the different poses.
