Pregnancy Yoga at Yogawest

yogawest-banner5Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga 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.

 From January the Course will be at the New Time of 12.30–1.30

Next Course Jan 8, 15, 22, 29, Feb 5, 12 (6 weeks)
Cost £60

Out of termtime you may be able to attend regular classes at Yogawest, but this is at the discretion of the class teacher, and if you are not already practicing yoga will be after 13 weeks and assumes there are no medical complications:

Coming to Regular Classes When Pregnant

Students can usually continue attending their usual class(es) 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.

Tattva Incense

We are trying something new in the shop.

Tattva Incense is hand-made in the town of Rishikesh, on the banks of the Ganges river in the Indian Himalaya.

The non-toxic, natural herbs and oils are chosen and formulated into sophisticated blends of paste by Tattva Incense founder and owner Prem Narayan. It’s then hand-rolled onto wooden sticks, air-dried and packaged.
