Trained by Birthlight, our classes corporate long tested Classic Yoga practices to specifically benefit pregnant women and women in labour. The practice harmonises the body, mind, emotion and spirit as one, with the aim of enhancing the enjoyment of this special time and experience in a women’s life and the start of her baby’s life.
The yoga practice strengthens and tones the whole body, keeping one fit and healthy in pregnancy and prepared for labour. As well as working on a variety of yogic poses, breath, movement and contractions work together, enabling you to have the birth you desire. We cover birthing positions as well as pelvic floor exercises which is a ‘must’ in pregnancy and beyond.
It is important to be aware of muscles, ligaments and joints that soften in pregnancy, due to the release of hormones and yoga helps to support the muscles and keep them well-toned.
