When can I start practising Pregnancy Yoga?
It’s best to wait until you’re 14+ weeks to start your practise and you will most likely have more energy after the first trimester as your body is already working hard to nourish the new life growing inside of you.
What should I wear?
Wear loose/stretchy clothing if you can to ensure your comfort during the class. It’s best to wear layers so you can cool down/warm up if you need to.
Can I still come to class if I’ve never done Yoga before?
Yes! Pregnancy Yoga is specifically tailored for expectant mums so even if you’ve had a Yoga practise prior to becoming pregnant you will find the poses and exercises we do to be slightly different.
Will practising Yoga help me during labour?
Absolutely! The classes don’t just help to prepare you for the physical and emotional changes during pregnancy, they will also help you to open the body, strengthen birthing muscles and develop breathing and relaxation techniques to use during labour.
Are you qualified to teach Pregnancy Yoga?
Yes, I have trained with author and teacher Uma Dinsmore-Tuli of Womb Yoga to complete a 40-hour training recognised by the Independent Yoga Network with an emphasis on supporting healthy pregnancy through appropriate holistic yoga practices.
When are the classes?
Wednesdays 6-7:15pm at Ouseburn Community Centre.
How much are the classes and how do I book?
a single pass/drop-in session is £10, a 4-class pass (valid for 6-weeks) is £35 and an 8-class pass is £65 (valid for 12-weeks). You can book and pay online or you can just purchase your pass at the class but it’s a good idea to let me know you’re coming along first by calling 07774 222107 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What do I need to bring?
Mats and props are provided but if you can, bring a cushion and a blanket for the relaxation at the end of the practice.
