Yoga to support a womans journey into motherhood.

Prenatal/Postnatal General Class Guidelines : If you are pregnant or have recently given birth please advise the teacher of any class you attend so they are aware & able to suggest modifications that may be needed to ensure the yoga practice is safe for you. You may continue an existing yoga practice safely with a few modifications that your teacher can advise you on. We recommend choosing a very gentle practice for the 'first trimester' the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy & for the 'fourth trimester' the first 12 weeks after the birth of your baby. Alongside prenatal & postnatal offerings our 'Gentle' & 'Yoga Restore' classes are a great option over these periods of time.

Prenatal Yoga

Sunday morning 10.15-11.15am - A gentle and supportive weekly class to safely adapt your yoga to your changing body. This class can help to create connection to your body, breath & growing baby. Taught by teachers who have specialised prenatal training this class is safe and gentle enough to start at any stage and continue right through to the end of a healthy pregnancy and it suitable for all levels of experience, including women who are brand new to yoga.

Childbirth Workshop 

This workshop will offer the chance to develop techniques and explore movement that will support you to birth with confidence. The workshop will cover movement and positions that women naturally adopt to cope with the intensity of the birthing experience. Running 5 times a year, check our event listing for the next one.

Mums & Bubs Yoga 

Appropriate for all levels of yoga experience this class is taught progressively over seven weeks, giving you and your baby the opportunity to playfully interact and be active together on the yoga mat. Ideal for infants up to around 9 months old (or active crawling stage). Modifying and working yoga postures around babies, this class will focus on reconditioning your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, stretching and strengthening your back, releasing tension from your neck & shoulders alongside creating the opportunity to relax and restore your whole body and mind. Connect with others who are sharing the same stage of the motherhood journey.

Post Natal Workshops 

Learn more about postpartum changes that may have occurred in your body after pregnancy and delivery. This 2.5 hour workshop will show you how you can skillfully adapt your Yoga practice to safely honour and support those changes. There will be discussion on specific postnatal issues such as general back pain, pelvic instability, pelvic floor function & dysfunction, Diastasis Rectus (abdominal separation) and share empowering techniques that you take back into your Yoga practice safely. Appropriate from 6 weeks and upwards to several years after delivery.
