Yoga postures build strength, stamina and endurance.

We offer Prenatal Yoga classes to all Mothers-to-be after the 12th week of pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga with Pilates six weeks after a natural delivery, or 12 weeks after a caesarean section. Women need to check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. We all know that exercise is good for our health and even more important when you are pregnant, but knowing which type of exercise is safe and beneficial for both mum and baby can be daunting. Our small and intimate yoga classes are ideal, giving mothers individual attention from trained instructors. Encouragement is given for mothers to develop their own private practice with postures specifically aimed to alleviate aches and pains and help make pregnancy more comfortable and enjoyable.

Our prenatal yoga classes are gentle and controlled with specific postures dedicated to strengthening the body; sequencing of postures to improve circulation, and breathing techniques to encourage the body to relax and the mind to become quiet and focused. Through simple concentration, pregnant mothers are encouraged to trust their intuition and find the strength and confidence within themselves to enjoy their pregnancy, give birth and take on the awesome responsibility of being a mother with quiet confidence and inner - and outer - joy.

Furthermore, these friendly, easy going classes bring women together when they are undergoing the same emotional and physical changes, often far away from the support of their family and friends. This can greatly improve their confidence and increase their social support networks. Sometimes friendships are formed which last a lifetime.

We have found that this combination of the physical or asana portion of yoga with the emotional and spiritual component can be an aid in reducing pregnancy-related anxiety. It can also improve the new mum and dad's experience of the miracle and empowerment of pregnancy.

Each class lasts one hour. The classes are divided into four sections:

Breathing or Pranayama
- powerful techniques to ensure an abundant supply of oxygen for you and your child. Your general fitness will also improve as you will be shown how to make the best of your lung capacity even though baby is preventing your diaphragm from working properly - particularly helpful in the last trimester.

Yoga Exercises - these gently work on the reproductive organs; strengthen the pelvis and spine and overall help your body to cope with the growing baby. At the subtle level, the asanas (poses) ensure optimum supply of blood and nutrients to the developing baby. Yoga even helps alleviate cramps in the legs and improves digestion. A prenatal yoga class is less about doing the perfect posture and more about awareness of the breath and how it affects your energy and strength.

Focus and Concentration
- our simple meditation and visualisation segment is designed to help you cope with the fears, stress and anxieties that are often too common in pregnancy. You feel more connected with your baby and the personal exploration of your inner strengths can bring you to a place of acceptance and gratitude. This is so powerful in alleviating depression and will help you really appreciate and enjoy the privilege of being pregnant.

Deep Relaxation or Yoga Nidra
- the best part! Deep relaxation can be learnt and once you know the relaxed state, you can return to it whenever you need it, even during labour. We try and give you at least 10 minutes of guided relaxation in a darkened room, with soothing music and pillows, ensuring you leave the yoga studio feeling calm and refreshed - your personal oasis.
