Active Birth Yoga For Pregnant Women

When you practise Active Birth yoga for pregnancy you will strengthen your body and gain confidence in preparing for birth. You will learn how to relieve stress, with breathing and relaxation included in every class. The exercises improve your posture and circulation and can help reduce the strains of pregnancy. The classes give you a general sense of well being and an increase in confidence as you approach the birth of your baby.

The exercises are gentle, safe and easy to follow, and are suitable for any stage of pregnancy.

The class consists of 1½ hours of yoga, breathing and relaxation. This will include some work on positions and breathing for labour. There is ½ an hour of discussion, and refreshments at the end, during which we may discuss a particular birth-related topic, and there is time for socialising.

In preparing for birth we work with both the body and the mind, so that the yoga classes and the birth preparation courses are complementary to one another.

I cannot express enough how much the yoga breathing helps.
Emma - second time mum.

Thank you for your wonderful classes.
I really think that I had such an efficient birth due to my good breathing techniques, ability to relax and increased body awareness which I learned and developed in your class.
Erika - 2nd time mum

It really was the most amazing experience, dare I say it, almost enjoyable. I really wasn't expecting it to be such a positive experience having heard so many horror stories. I have no doubt that yoga helped contribute to it all - paticularly my state of mind throughout.
Amy - first time mum

Thank you for all your support and advice throughout the time I came to your classes. It's all been invaluable and I went into labour full of confidence in my own ability to cope with the experience.
