Pregnancy Yoga

yogawest-banner5Yoga is a beneficial and enjoyable activity to do when pregnant. It prepares your body and mind for birth, keeps you moving and is a lovely way to meet other Mums-to-be in the area. Midwives and Doulas recognise the benefits of regular yoga when pregnant and we are always delighted when they come to class themselves.

Coming to Regular Classes When Pregnant

Students can usually continue attending their usual classes once they become pregnant, but it’s important that the teacher is aware (email us so we can let the teacher know you are coming, or arrive 15 mins before class). You may prefer to wait until 13 weeks when you can join the pregnancy class which is suitable for existing practitioners and complete beginners. During weeks 10-13 of the pregnancy you can’t come to regular classes but, if you are an existing Iyengar practitioner, you may be able to come to the restorative class on a Friday evening with advance permission (email us to check, confirming you have no complications). NB: we do not accept new pregnant students to regular classes until after 13 weeks, and then it is with permission of the class teacher.

Midwives welcome!
