Yoga can help during pregnancy, a time when the body is undergoing so many changes. Pregnancy is an ideal time to start yoga, to continue your yoga practice sympathetically to your growing and changing body and to have the opportunity to meet other mums-to-be. Practicing yoga in pregnancy can help to gently stretch and tone your body as your baby grows, prepare for birth and provide tools to help promote a sense of balance and wellbeing.
Each class includes relaxation and pranayama (breathing techniques) to help during labour and asana (physical movements and poses) to help relieve common pregnancy ailments whilst strengthening the body and increasing flexibility. You will leave feeling calm and relaxed – bliss!
