About Pregnancy Yoga
Pregnancy Yoga provides numerous physical and emotional benefits that can enhance the entire birth and parenting experience. Pregnancy Yoga brings a calm strength and inner balance that enables you to overcome whatever challenges lie ahead.
The Yoga class is designed specifically to relieve aches and pains experienced during pregnancy, to strengthen the body, and help you relax and sleep better, as well as prepare the body and mind for birth. In our pregnancy yoga class we practice different types of breathing techniques, and also combine this with practicing a variety of poses which are suitable for labour and birth.
The class is suitable for those who are over 12 weeks pregnant, right up until the day you give birth. Our highly experienced teacher is Helen Plass, a Pre & Post-Natal Yoga Instructor, Active Birthing Instructor and Fitness Specialist, and mother of 3 little boys, all birthed naturally.

Your pelvic floor muscles require specific training to give your uterus optimal support in pregnancy. Deep breathing and exercise prepare these muscles to become ‘birthing muscles’. You will learn here how to ‘birth lightly’- making use of your breath and increase efficacy of uterine contractions while keeping the rest of your body relaxed. You will get here all the useful information about pregnancy and birth; you will connect with your baby and body, as well as other mums! Friendships start here too!
