Service description:
Yoga is the ideal exercise for pregnant and post natal women and is safe and accessible to all, whether new to Yoga or an experienced practitioner.
It provides practical support in preparing for birth with an emphasis on preventive care and is widely recommended by midwives and doctors as a way of keeping fit and mobile in pregnancy and beyond.
These yoga classes provide you with the opportunity to safely stretch, strengthen, breath and relax. The aim is to give you the tools to practice at home in order to maintain a healthy pregnancy, prepare for birthing physically and mentally, get to know your baby and aid the recovery of your post natal body and give you quality time out to relax, get to know and bond with your growing baby.
Yoga can help prevent or relieve common minor pregnancy or post natal related ailments and will help keep your body supple, boost energy and relieve stress and anxiety whilst also being a great opportunity for you to meet other expectant or new mums.
It is important to listen to your intuition in pregnancy and beyond, do what feels right for you and your baby. If you feel you need to rest, feed, nappy change etc then please do so, you do not have to join in every exercise, listen to and respond to your body’s needs, remember the class is time out for you and your baby.
The main aim of the birth preparation workshop is to give the birthing partner a more confident supportive role towards the expectant mother during birthing.
Often a birthing partner can be at a loss as to exactly how to help, they may be uncertain, nervous and find the experience distressing.
This workshop provides basic tools to help and support the birthing mother physically and emotionally whilst learning to relax, accept and trust in the whole event as it unfolds.
