Pregnancy Yoga - New Class
Between 6.15pm and 8.15pm
At Heene Community Centre
Our Pregnancy Yoga classes are welcoming and friendly - everyone is welcome. Most people are brand new to yoga when they join us for pregnancy classes but quickly find they take to it and feel great from classes.
Classes help relieve common pregnancy ailments, prepare you for brith and you can meet other mums-to-be! We always include Birth Breathing techniques to help during labour; offer practices to strengthen your body or increase flexibility; and ways to calm the mind with our fantastic guided relaxation and mediations. It really is an all round comprehensive approach, bringing the best in nourishing yoga together with the latest in scientific evidence.
Antenatal education is included in all our classes which are tailored to meet your needs. Classes are suitable from 15 weeks (if you are brand new to yoga, or begin earlier if you are familiar with yoga) to full term. If you are familiar with yoga or have experience with other physical practices such as dancing or pilates and feel very body aware and need to move, you may be able to join our classes earlier, just check with your doctor or midwife and then contact the teacher in your area directly.
