What happens at the classes?
The classes last one hour and 15 minutes during which we practice breathing techniques for labour, yoga postures and end with a guided relaxation. The yoga postures are all completely safe and suitable for pregnancy and I can offer modifications for any aches and pains (e.g. PGP/SPD, carpal tunnel, diastasis recti). We focus on building strength and stamina, keeping you flexible and fit throughout your pregnancy, and also relaxing. Each week we start the class by talking about a different aspect of pregnancy or birth to ensure you are as prepared as you can be for birth and motherhood.
How much does it cost and what does that include?
Classes are booked in blocks of 8 weeks costing £97. A £15.50 deposit is required to secure your place and the remaining balance is due before you attend your first class (I will send you instructions for paying once your have booked your place). You will receive a YogaBellies tote bag full of pregnancy-related information and a few treats, and we will send you valuable yoga, pregnancy and baby information once a week via our virtual pack emails. We also have a WhatsApp group where we share class updates, pregnancy tips and birth announcements.
When can I start?
We recommend that you wait until you are at least 12 weeks pregnant, unless you already have a regular yoga practice. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or have had any problems during pregnancy, please run this past your GP or Midwife before starting the class and discuss with myself. Please don't worry if you have never done yoga before, most of our mums-to-be are trying it for the first time!
What do I need to bring?
Mats, blankets and equipment are all provided. All you need to bring is a bottle of water and wear comfortable clothes.
