‘My pregnancy yoga classes use yoga practices to gently support both the physical and emotional aspects of woman in the perinatal period. Each week we relax the body and mind, we work the body gently in asana to improve strength and stamina throughout the trimesters, working on those little physical niggles that can accompany growing new life . Most importantly we also cover aspects of pregnancy and delivery from a yogic point of view, working on breathing techniques to help make that transition to motherhood and beyond!
The breathing techniques I teach in class encompass this, working with mothers body and baby together very much in the moment encouraging mothers to be in the moment and find that stillness.’
