Pregnancy Yoga | Late Pregnancy

 

Bringing life into life through your own is the greatest miracle of all. Each mother deserves to be nurtured and cherished during her pregnancy and it is her birth-right to labour and birth in dignity the way her body tells her to. These ante-natal yoga classes provide a warm and supportive environment to guide you safely through the last trimester of pregnancy, preparing you for labour and birth. The classes aim to equip you with the knowledge necessary to address common pregnancy ailments and potential physical, mental or emotional obstacles that may hinder a straightforward birth to give you the confidence and strength to BIRTH YOUR WAY.

During the course you will have several workshop type yoga classes (birthing breathing; dealing with fear; comfort measures for labour; pelvic mapping; meet the midwive:Q&A). You also receive handouts as we go through the course. You can join at any time during the course given that places are available, though we strongly recommend attending throughout the duration of your pregnancy to experience the full benefits.
