Yogalime Pregnancy Yoga classes, provide an opportunity for you to switch off from the outside world and focus on you and your baby – creating a space just for you both. No previous experience of yoga is necessary. Our classes are designed to enhance and nurture your experience of pregnancy and birth.
Gentle exercises are practiced to help common ailments experienced in pregnancy. Breathing techniques, visualisations, relaxation and sound practices are explored, to nurture relaxation and help facilitate birth. This can support you to obtain a more restful sleep, enabling you to feel more energised.
Pelvic floor exercises allow you to gain a greater awareness over this area of your body, which is helpful during birth and will support you to heal and strengthen the pelvic floor after birth.
Pregnancy yoga postures build stability and strength, whilst softening and relaxing appropriate areas of the body – creating space. Yoga practices can be used to relieve pain in labour and birth. Together we will explore postures to support an active birth (which is explored further in our Birth Preparation Workshop with birth partners).
Yoga helps to release stress, tension and anxiety held within the body and mind – calming emotions. Classes support you to build confidence and an understanding of techniques you can use to help birth your baby – to aid you to feel positive and empowered for the birth you want.
Our classes provide a welcoming environment for you to meet other pregnant women and share your experiences of pregnancy and birth. Pregnancy Yoga nurtures the connection with your baby and are an opportunity for you to relax and have fun !
To obtain the greatest benefits we recommend joining classes early in Pregnancy and continuing them, so you experience a broad range of practices and your awareness and ability to listen to your body deepens. The practices become familiar and are better able to support you in pregnancy and birth – in a way that feels natural and most comfortable to you.
You will also be invited to join our Mums and Bumps Club!
