Prenatal Yoga

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh

Moving with your baby at Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Yoga gives you the opportunity to embrace your changing body and support this process by practising meditation and yoga postures, in combination with breathing- and relaxation exercises and specific poses that can be used during delivery.

No Yoga in your First Trimester

Your pregnancy can be a beautiful, special time, providing an opportunity to turn inward and get in touch with yourself and the baby you are carrying. In a short period of time, the body goes through a great transformation, getting ready for birth. We offer two types of Prenatal Yoga classes that will support you during the second and third trimester of your pregnancy. If you are in your first trimester we advise you to NOT practice yoga. 

Prenatal Yoga

A gentle class that focuses on relaxation and letting go. Soft stretching and light strengthening combined with calm breathing will help to relieve tension that accumulates during pregnancy as the body goes through a lot of change. It helps train the breath, body, and mind to relax.

Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga

An empowering class that will help you to create strength and stamina needed during this transformative time. By moving with your breath in a modified vinyasa flow, you’ll greatly increase your ability to connect with your inner strength in preparation of childbirth. The class always ends with deep relaxation.

Other yoga styles during Pregnancy

It is possible to practice other styles of yoga in the second or third trimester of your pregnancy, but please always let the teacher know that you are pregnant before the class starts. When practising in a regular class please be mindful and avoid deep twisting, deep backbends, breath retention and inversions. Being pregnant is a transformative and natural state in a woman’s life.

Your body is changing every day so it is an especially important time to listen and connect with your body, letting your body and heart guide you through your practice. Read more about the benefits of Prenatal Yoga.
