Yoga for Pregnancy

Support through your pregnancy, birth and beyond

Yoga for Pregnancy

Classes are back face to face at Nine Springs Natural Health Centre in Yeovil.  I am continuing to run sessions online using the ‘Zoom’ platform alongside the face to face classes.  All classes run on a drop in basis, no need to book for a whole term and cost £5 if accessing online and £9 face to face (discount available when making a block booking of 4 face to face classes).

These Yoga for Pregnancy classes are a time to relax, focus on your new baby and think about your wishes for the birth, with practical tips and time to ask questions. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other expectant mums.

The classes focus on gentle postures, breathing techniques, positions for labour and relaxation. The aim is for you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time, whilst improving your physical and emotional wellbeing and helping you feel more confident and positive about birth. The postures are very gentle, specifically designed so you can attend throughout your pregnancy (after 12 weeks) and can be adapted to individual needs.

The classes are suitable for all women, regardless of their fitness level. No previous experience of yoga is necessary.

Benefits of these classes include:

  • Reduced back ache
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Strengthened joints and muscles
  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Reduced swelling from fluid retention
  • Improved posture and body awareness
  • Strengthened abdominal and pelvic muscles
  • Improved digestive system

Places must be booked in advance due to limited room in the studio.
