Wednesdays 6-7.20pm and 7.40-9pm
These classes are for you if you are 14 weeks or more pregnant and want to:
- Prepare for your baby’s birth
- Learn to relax more deeply whilst pregnant
- Develop awareness of your body and your breath to be more at ease during your pregnancy
- Gently stretch and tone your pelvic floor, abdominal and supporting muscles
- Take time out to process the experience of being pregnant and to bond with your baby
- Have fun whilst meeting other pregnant women
When you come to my classes you are in safe hands – I have been teaching pregnant women for over 15 years. My classes were the very first pregnancy yoga classes in the area!
Many classes are only one hour long - my pregnancy yoga classes are all 90 minutes long which means that the pace in unhurried, you have some headspace and time out, and you can absorb the benefits of each practice more deeply. This is also true of the relaxation as there is proper time for this in the session not just a brief 2 or 5 minutes. Our physiology changes for the better when we relax, as does that of your unborn baby, so this is a key and integral part of the pregnancy yoga.

As well as holding a yoga teaching diploma ( FrYog 2000) I first qualified with Birthlight in 2003 and am now a tutor for them in perinatal yoga so am responsible for teaching other teachers as well as midwives in the UK and abroad. Birthlight are the only yoga organisation in the UK accredited by the Royal College of Midwives ( RCM) and are a pioneer in its field of women's health care and wellbeing through yoga.
There are other yoga based practices around but do check that the person/people running them are properly qualified yoga teachers with a specialism in this area. I am not part of a franchise which may turn out people who have done very short trainings. Over my 20 years of teaching I have developed a lot of expertise and am very proficient at adapting the needs of each class to its participants at that moment in time.
