95% of our subconscious conditioned responses are embedded in the last trimester of pregnancy and the first 7 years of life.  There is no manual so to approach pregnancy and mothering mindfully gives your child the most amazing headstart in life. Breath is life and a mother’s deep breath goes much further than making a contraction easier.  Start this incredible journey now…

    Pregnancy yoga

    Practice with Lon

    A women’s health specialist and doula

    Tone your pelvic floor muscles vital to support your uterus and other organs during pregnancy

    Establish a calm mind, inner balance and strength to take you through the pregnancy and after birth

Whilst pregnant you are going through a transitional period where your physical and mental well being are so important for you and your growing little one. Yoga will increase your self- awareness as your body goes through these changes, and help you cope with them and your emotions pre-birth. Work with a women’s health specialist and ensure you are in good hands as you progress through pregnancy. 

Yoga will also: –

  • help establish a calm mind, inner balance and strength to take you through the pregnancy and after birth
  • Encourages lymphatic drainage reducing fluid retention and swollen hands and feet
  • Encourage deep relaxation through proper diaphragmatic breathing,  helping to stabilize emotions and deal with tiredness
  • tones your pelvic floor muscles vital to support your uterus and other organs during pregnancy, and increases their elasticity preparing them for birth
  • helps your body to recover more easily post birth

    I have had a regular yoga practice and want to continue

    If you have done a regular yoga practice before you can also attend the general yoga classes but please be aware that these are not aimed at pregnant students. However they are run by Tish who is a pregnancy yoga teacher and practiced yoga daily through her two pregnancies.  Directions will be given as to what pregnant students should avoid as the weeks go on and alternative postures/sequences will be given where necessary.
