WHAT TO EXPECT in a prenatal yoga session?

These nurturing experiences, meticulously designed for expectant mothers, promote physical and emotional well-being and underscore the importance of self-care and empathy. They infuse a sense of stillness, harmony, and connection and, most importantly, equip you for the journey of childbirth.

In a session, you’ll likely be encouraged to use props such as bolsters, blocks, wedges, or folded blankets to help achieve proper alignment, this is because Prenatal Yoga focuses on positions that are specifically designed for pregnant women’s bodies.

Renew your body, mind, and soul, promising a genuinely enriching experience for all expecting moms.

Is it okay to start with prenatal yoga as my first experience with yoga?

Yes! It’s important to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine during pregnancy. Assuming your doctor has given you the go-ahead to stay physically active, yoga can be an excellent choice for expectant moms. It offers a gentle way to stay fit, improve flexibility, and reduce stress, which can be beneficial during pregnancy. 

What experience do I need?

There are no formal entry requirements; however, you are highly recommended to attend the 'Discover Yoga and Meditation' workshop to maximise the benefits of this session.
