Our pregnancy yoga classes combine stretching, breathing, and relaxation techniques to offer relief from the common discomforts of pregnancy and to prepare the body for birth.
Deepen your awareness of your ever-changing body and mind as you prepare for the life-changing event of birth in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Whether you are a complete beginner to yoga or a seasoned yogi, or anywhere in between; whether this is your first, second, or sixth pregnancy – you are very welcome to come along and experience this nourishing practice.
What can pregnancy yoga help with?
It’s not unusual to experience a range of physical and emotional changes as your body and mind adapt and prepare for the arrival of your little one. Through a combination of specific pre-natal yoga poses, focused breathing and long, guided relaxation, pregnancy yoga can help to:
- improve the quality of your sleep
- reduce worry and stress
- improve energy levels
- minimise back and pelvic pain
When can I start?
Pregnancy yoga students are welcome to attend this class after their 12th week of pregnancy and should ensure that they have informed their doctor/midwife before commencing.
What are blended yoga classes?
Blended classes are both in-person and online. We teach from a studio with real life students whilst also teaching online via Zoom. We welcome students from all over as well as students that are not able to make it to a class for whatever reason.
What else can help me prepare for birth?
As well as offering pregnancy yoga, the team at Purely Pregnant have supported hundreds of mums (dads and birth partners) to have their best possible birth through the HypnoBirthing birth preparation programme. We offer virtual free monthly Hypnobirthing Taster sessions if you’d like to learn more.
