6-Week Pregnancy Yoga Course
Every Wednesday, prenatal classes are flowing, nourishing and encourage women to tune in and trust their intuition. Attention is given to your changing body, releasing areas of tension, and reconnecting with both yourself and baby. We build in time to pause and surrender, yet feel strong and empowered throughout the classes (and pregnancy). Classes are suitable for any stage of pregnancy, you will be led how to adapt the postures as necessary to suit your body and trimester. You may already be familiar with some of the poses, but prior yogic knowledge is not necessary as we will be working around these classic poses with mindfulness and care to create a sense of nurturing and peace, bringing flexibility to mind and body.
