Which class when I’m pregnant?

Regular Yoga or Prenatal Yoga Classes?

Pregnant woman relax doing yoga, sitting in lotus position overOur regular yoga classes are not suitable for pregnancy* & we recommend you attend the prenatal class throughout this short but important phase of your life.  Our prenatal class helps to prepare for birth in many ways, including movement, breathing techniques & pelvic floor work – it’s a great time to be curious & explore these new areas in a pregnancy yoga class. In prenatal yoga you can be sure that every movement is safe for you & your baby.

*If attending a regular class when pregnant without checking first, your entrance will depend upon the teacher’s qualifications/insurance & the studio’s discretion & you may be turned away. 

Suitability

Please check with your doctor &/or midwife that you are able to start a prenatal yoga class. You can start prenatal yoga from 14+ weeks & keep coming until birth-date, please call to discuss if you have any queries. You don’t need to be fit already & no matter how you feel about yourself this class will be safe & useful to you. Similarly, if you are very fit already, we can modify things so that you get a good SAFE practice too.
