New Tuesday evening Prenatal Yoga course


NEW TUESDAY-EVENING PRENATAL YOGA COURSE


STARTS TUESDAY 28 APRIL, 6:45 - 7:45PM

We are running a new Tuesday-evening Prenatal Yoga course, starting on Tuesday 28 April (6:45 - 7:45pm).


THE BENEFITS OF PRENATAL YOGA

Pregnancy is a great personal journey for any woman and is a time of mental and physical change. It can also be a challenging time, as adjustments need to be made as the body starts to change shape.

A prenatal yoga practice can help address some of these changes in a positive way. Women who practice yoga during pregnancy are able to be really present in their bodies and connect with their unborn child. Yoga has a calming effect on the mother, which is, in turn, transmitted to the baby.

Breathing techniques learnt in prenatal yoga can be used at anytime during pregnancy and many women find them very useful when giving birth. Focusing on the breath can have a profound effect; by learning to control the breath women may feel empowered and more in control of their thoughts and body.

Pregnancy yoga differs from general yoga classes, in that many of the classical poses are adapted to accommodate the changes in the body. Twists are open, poses are fluid and nurturing for the mum to be, creating space in the body and helping to alleviate some of the common ailments often associated with pregnancy such as: backache, heartburn, swollen limbs etc.

Yoga is possible for anybody who really wants it. Yoga is universal. But don’t approach yoga with a business mind looking for worldly gain.
