During this present time we are operating a class pass which enables women to access two online pregnancy yoga classes each week.
In person classes resume from 7th September when Sherwood Community Centre reopens. Spaces will be limited and you are welcome to contact us now to book in. We continue to support pregnant women with tailored bookings, gentle classes and opportunities for friendship building, for all women over sixteen weeks. £48 per six weeks.
We have been specialists in pregnancy yoga since 2005 and all women are welcome in their second and third trimesters. Once in the group you are welcome to continue as long as you wish until baby arrives. We accommodate for a very wide range of pregnancy related conditions and issues, adapting every class to those present and individual needs.
In each class gentle yoga postures are practised to support your body, helping you reduce aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and aid digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems (to name but a few benefits).
Breathing practices which help in pregnancy are integral to each session, including techniques for labour, for calming and for energising. Many students’ favourite, yoga nidra, is the final practice of each class: a deep relaxation practice to help you feel refreshed, improve sleep and boost energy… while giving you time to connect to your baby and prepare for the life change ahead.
We have plenty of labour preparation elements woven into the sessions too, and frequently we hear from students and midwives that the techniques learned have been extremely useful for them during labour.
If you are new to yoga this is fine: more than half of our pregnancy students are, and complete beginners are welcome regardless of fitness or flexibility.
Research has shown that yoga in pregnancy helps women feel more confident about birth and less anxious about becoming a parent.
September 7th: our yoga space (which is upstairs), Sherwood Community Centre, Woodthorpe House, Mansfield Road, Nottingham
