Pregnancy yoga - its all about you, your body and your growing bump!
• Gentle movements release tension and strengthen the body
• Breathing exercises calm the mind
• Relaxation can dissolve the symptoms of stress
• Positive meditations strengthen the bond with your baby
• Visualizations for preparation for the birth
• Get together every week with other Mums to be
Positive preparation for the arrival of your baby can pave the way for a more relaxed, confident body and mind as labour begins.The ability to relax is essential. Relaxation can be enhanced with breathing and visualisation techniques practiced through pregnancy.
You don't need experience and all levels of fitness can benefit from pregnancy yoga. Some people need to boost their energy with movement and some people need to slow down. The classes are designed to cater for these different needs.
Every woman is different, every birth is different but whatever your plan, or your experience, the more you know your body, the more you can trust and relax when the day comes.
“Every woman in Merseyside should know about your classes. I promoted them whilst working as a midwife but now I have the privilege of experiencing how much they can prepare your body and mind set for birth.” C.M LWH Midwife

"Thanks again for such a fab time at yoga, it was my favorite part of being pregnant, you really taught me how to appreciate my baby before I could hold him on my arms." Katie
"I have now used yoga breathing to guide me through 2 water births. I am so glad I attended pregnancy yoga. It taught me so much, most importantly to trust my body, stay relaxed and breathe!" Leila

The prenatal yoga courses bring women together to breathe deeply, stretch and strengthen the body and practice the art of relaxation in a way that helps you get the most out of pregnancy. In the 2nd trimester its time to use yoga to grow strong and healthy with your baby. In the third trimester women naturally start to focus inwards and you can use the yoga techniques to prepare really positively for birth. The classes are always mixed with women from 16 to 40 weeks.
"I can't thank you enough for the confidence and strength you have given me to approach both of my labours in such a calm and relaxed way. As someone who thought she had a low pain threshold and had always been petrified of child birth to be able to approach both of my children's births with such excitement and no fear was quite an amazing turn around. I have had two truly wonderful beautiful births welcoming my children into the world. Without your yoga classes, and couples workshop that we both got so much from I don't think that would have been possible." S.Chapell
