A short prenatal yoga video that targets all the usual niggles of pregnancy.
Why attend Pregnancy Yoga Classes?
You are probably aware of the physical and emotional benefits of yoga.
Calm Mind. Health Strong Body.
These are even more important during pregnancy.
Yoga allows you to be connected. To be fully present. To be fully aware of your body, and of your baby. It is this connection, forged gently and subconsciously over time, that allows you to birth lightly.
A regular Pregnancy Yoga class will keep your body healthy, stretch out all your aches and pains, and give you tools and techniques to prepare you fully for birth.
I believe that the more informed we are, the better we can prepare for whatever life throws at us.
I endeavour to unravel the mysteries of pregnancy and labour during the classes, giving lots of information, along with advice on topics such as Optimum Foetal Positioning – essential for getting your baby into the correct position for labour; taking care of your perineum to avoid tearing; how to use a Birthing Ball for pregnancy and labour; and sharing the experiences of the other Mums who have taken this journey – hearing the weekly Birth Stories is often a highlight of the classes.

Occasionally we do a session using birthing/gym balls. These can be an invaluable tool for late pregnancy as well as labour. I will let you know in plenty of time when we will be doing a Birthing Ball session, and I have some spare balls to borrow if you don’t have one.
