PREGNANCY YOGA (Ante natal yoga)

(Birthlight/Yoga Gro/Classical Yoga)
Pregnancy yoga is a wonderful, safe and gentle way to exercise, enjoy your growing baby, relax and prepare for childbirth and beyond.  It is suitable for all women from the second trimester (14 weeks) onwards. No previous yoga experience is required.  The classes consists of time to stretch,tone, relax and breathe in small groups so individual attention can be given to each person. Handouts are provided.  Coffee mornings are arranged half termly along with an additional active birth class which birth partners are welcome to attend.  Yoga balls are provided should you prefer to sit on one. The yoga is modified for those with pelvic pain.
