~ Pregnancy Yoga
Monday evenings 7.30pm-8.45pm in the Studio £10.00
Pregnancy brings about a profound shift in a women’s mind, body and spiritual energy, as the unique and personal life
changing journey unfolds. Within my pregnancy Yoga class, you will receive vital pre-natal body care and practice wonderful,
safe and gentle yoga postures, feeling additionally nurtured with an ancient Indian head massage during relaxation.
I focus on flowing, gentle yoga postures (asanas) that aim to stretch out and create more space in the body, as well as
promoting the pelvic floor muscles to become strong, supple and flexible for birthing. I work with gravity, sound vibration and
breathing techniques to ease your body and your baby in to a lighter and less painful birth experience. Later in the flow a
“practice contractions” section of the class aims to guide and teach you how to use your body and mind effectively during
labour contractions and the 2nd stage of birth, as you learn optimal birthing positions, rebozo and sifting techniques and be
guided with visualization skills that many women have reported have all got them through the hardest part of labour. Finally a
deep relaxation and visualization journey in savasana will fully relax the body and mind.
These techniques will support the mind and body through pregnancy, childbirth, as well as promoting a healthy recovery after
My classes are infused with information on pregnancy and the growing baby in Utero, with helpful leaflets on how to relax and
prepare your mind and body for birthing in the most natural way possible by using these ancient techniques that have
supported so many women for thousands of years.
Yoga provides many benefits during pregnancy and can help:
~ Alleviate heartburn, tiredness and backache
~Boost circulation and help with fluid retention
~ Aid restful sleep
~Strengthen your muscles and supple the hips and pelvis to support your growing baby
By using these yoga techniques during labour it can help:
~Reduce medical intervention
~induce natural pain relieving hormones such as oxytocin and endorphins
~Naturally relieve the intensity of contractions and labour
~ Adapt to various different positions when in labour
~Feel more in control and trust your body, listen to your instincts to know what to do
Bearing another soul into this world is a deeply spiritual experience; Yoga helps you to connect with your own soul and to your
unborn baby, developing their health and well-being from the very start of life.
N.B Practice may only commence after the first trimester of pregnancy (12 weeks).
