Pregnancy yoga

Pregnancy Yoga classes provide women with a safe environment in which to explore their feelings and to adapt to the changes in their bodies. Yoga can provide a constant thread of stability. The principles of yoga include balance, awareness and respect. Women are empowered to feel confident in their ability to give birth. Yoga postures and movements will provide more space for the baby and alleviate many pregnancy discomforts. Every class ends with a deep relaxation allowing the body to release tensions and the mind to become still. Both mother and baby are nourished and energy is renewed.

Benefits


  • Promotes general health to mother and baby
  • Expands breathing, expanding lung capacity
  • Increases flexibility and mobility
  • Helps to gain confidence for the birth
  • Calms the mind and the emotions
  • Bonding with your baby

“Sally is a truly inspirational antenatal yoga teacher who has made an enormous difference to my pregnancy. Her approach is incredibly holistic, preparing the mother not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. Her classes include yoga moves, breathing techniques to help with labour, good birth positions, time for meeting other mothers and much much more. She teaches with humour and from the heart. It is obvious that she uses her own experience and that of teaching pregnant women over the years to enrich each class. Many of us speak of coming out of class feeling so much more energised, however difficult our day or week has been. I would describe my class as a sacrosanct two hours in the week when I can escape work/ home/ family for two hours and really connect with my bump. The very high return rate to Sally’s classes is a further testament to her skills. I hope that she can be recognised for her amazing work as she not only teaches her class but trains others as well.”Class parent
