Weybridge Health & Fitness > Pregnancy Yoga – Yoga Flow
Pregnancy Yoga Surrey – 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.
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.
Strengthen the pelvic floor stabilizing the pelvis, promoting faster postnatal recovery and minimizing risk of incontinence
Relieve minor ailments (e.g. swollen joints, heartburn, constipation, backache)
Release overall tension
Build strength and stamina in preparation for childbirth
Boost energy levels
Promote relaxation and restful sleep
Develop confidence, peace of mind and a positive, flexible attitude to childbirth
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.
