Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga is of immense help in pregnancy and labour. It helps relaxation and stress management as well as providing tools for Mama to use in labour and birth. Yoga stretches help to open the pelvis, provide more space for the baby and can alleviate some of the yucky side effects of pregnancy for Mama. Yoga also brings a calmness of mind and an awareness of breath that are invaluable tools for labour.

Pregnancy Yoga helps to:

  • Release stress and anxiety

  • Improve general fitness and stamina for pregnancy and birth

  • Strengthen pelvis and spine

  • Strengthen clarity of mind

  • Bring emotional balance

  • Increase strength, flexibility and agility

  • Increase circulation and deep toning to the uterine muscles

  • Help with breathing and relaxation for labour and birth skills

  • Improves posture

  • Can reduce or alleviate back problems in pregnancy

  • Helps Mama to birth consciously and powerfully

  • Help Mama to slow down and adjust from a busy work life to being a mother

  • Empowers Mama to harness the strength needed to face the challenges ahead
