Prenatal Yoga

Support your mind, body, and baby in this transformative time

At Delight Yoga, we offer Prenatal Yoga classes and workshops guided by expert teachers in Amsterdam, Den Haag, and Online. 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.

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 your pregnancy. If you are new to yoga, we advise you to wait until your second trimester before joining a (prenatal) yoga class. If you already had a regular yoga practice before getting pregnant and wish to practice during the first 3 months of pregnancy, please make sure to talk to your teacher and listen extra carefully to your body.

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 during 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, pressure on the belly, engaging the core muscles too much, 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.
