Active Birth Pregnancy Yoga is gentle yet effective, adapted specially for pregnancy to help ease aches and pains, promote wellbeing, and prepare your body and mind for birth. These special classes include not only gentle stretches and movements to help you remain healthy and comfortable throughout your pregnancy, but also active birth preparation, relaxation, discussion and refreshments.
You can attend anytime during pregnancy, from 14 weeks until the birth of your baby.
The atmosphere is relaxed and individual needs are taken into consideration e.g. alternative postures are given where appropriate. Regular attendance is advised to give you the greatest benefit, and classes are to be booked in advance. Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings.
Postnatal / Mum & Baby Yoga is very supportive, restorative, nurturing and relaxing for you and your baby following birth and during the postnatal period, and can be attended from when your baby is approximately 6 weeks old up until they are crawling. A really special way to spend time with each other during these very precious, amazing (yet sometimes challenging) early weeks and months, giving you both the opportunity to relax, connect, breathe, play, move and stretch together. Postnatal Yoga is gentle, specifically designed to meet your needs as a new mum, allowing you to exercise safely whilst gradually returning alignment, flexibility, balance and strength to your body following pregnancy and birth. The classes incorporate a tea and chat time, an opportunity to ask questions and to share experiences with other mums and a postnatal doula in a supportive environment. Baby Massage is also included. Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.
Mums-Only Yoga classes are available bi-weekly on Sunday evenings, and can be attended by mums of babies or young children from 10 weeks postnatal.
No previous yoga experience is necessary and classes are suitable for all levels of fitness and flexibility.
