This yoga class is specifically for pregnant woman (post 12 weeks gestation) and the unique journey that unfolds right up until giving birth. It is suitable for all levels. The class combines strength and softness, and incorporates yoga asana (postures), pranayama (breathwork), meditation, birthing postures, and visualisation.
As your body changes through pregnancy, women become looser in some areas and tighter in others to compensate for growing babies. The asana component of this course is designed to strengthen the body, including the arms and legs, while releasing the back, hips and opening the front of body. The pranayama and meditation components are designed to enable women to be as relaxed as possible throughout their pregnancy, deeply influencing their growing baby in a positive way. This class provides a beautiful space to connect more deeply with your growing baby and aims to consciously prepare pregnant woman for labour and birth with a sense of confidence and empowerment.
All classes start with an opportunity to connect with other women as we explore the pregnancy journey in a supportive environment.
A safe regular yoga practice during pregnancy will:
• encourage calmness and growth in the developing baby
• help focus the mind and build the inner strength needed to give birth
• ease the labour and birthing experience
• better enable your body to bounce back after birth
