Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga is very beneficial to pregnant women on many levels. The breathing, gentle exercise, soft sounds and guided visualisations soothe the entire system and help with the physical, mental and emotional demands of pregnancy.
The breathing techniques, movements and mental focus practiced through pregnancy yoga are undoubtedly the most useful tools a woman can use when giving birth.
Classes focus on helping women stay comfortable, strong and relaxed during their pregnancies, also teaching birthing movements and breathing to help you remain calm and energised through labour.

Pregnancy Yoga Pyrford near West Byfleet Surrey

Pregnancy yoga is a safe form of exercise to practice and the gentle posture work helps to release tension in the shoulders, ease back pain, open up the body, strengthen the spine, improve sleep and encourage the baby into the best position for labour.
The resulting sense of wellbeing and harmony within mind, body and spirit makes for a calm, happy and healthy pregnancy, nourishing mother and child(ren).
Midwives claim they can tell when a woman has practiced yoga during pregnancy; she breathes well through contractions, is more aware of her potential for movement and working with gravity, and is able to let go, tune into herself and work with the natural process of childbirth. Posture work practiced in classes helps to prepare the body for labour, and specific exercises to help the baby down through the pelvis are taught.
Yoga can also alleviate Pelvic Girdle Pain or SPD. Much attention is given to strengthening the pelvic floor, giving optimal support through pregnancy and speeding recovery after the birth.
Equally importantly, pregnancy yoga classes offer some much needed time for yourself, to make space and time to adjust with ease during this life changing journey and enhance the connection between mother and baby, nurturing both.
Women are offered continuity of care through pregnancy classes, post natal classes and many continue onto general classes. It is always a joy to have women return with subsequent pregnancies.

 

Pregnancy Yoga Testimonials

“I find my pregnancy yoga class fantastic, I began to get lower back pain when I became pregnant but Christina has done a fantastic job and I no longer feel pain, I enjoy every class and I highly recommend her to everyone who is pregnant. The classes are very easy to follow, there is always a variety of postures in the class and I find the pelvic floor exercises really helpful. I enjoy my pregnancy classes and always leave feeling relaxed and looking forward to the next.” - Lisa Marie
 
“I have never felt as relaxed as I do when lying on Christina's floor! The mantra she taught me has really helped me to sleep at night. I also like to practice some of the exercises from the class daily.” - Helen

“Thank you for all the prep. It worked! When does mum and baby yoga start?!” - Joanne

Pregnancy Yoga Class Information

Your first class is a taster session, thereafter the classes are booked and paid for in advance in blocks of 5. You can join at anytime after your first scan and classes can be taken right up until 40+ weeks
Classes take place at the Old School Room, next to St. Nicholas’ Church, Church Hill, Pyrford, GU22 8XH and are on Tuesday evenings from 6.20-7.30pm.
