We want you to be able to move freely without restriction. Please wear clothing that you will not overheat in. Think, leggings, shorts, vests, t-shirts and sports bras for women.
Please bring along enough water especially to our warm & hot classes. We offer complimentary infused water and sell Chilly’s Bottles at the studio and are proud to say that we are a plastic-free studio.
If you have a yoga mat please bring it with you otherwise we hire our Lululemon mats for £2.
Bring a towel for class and if you wish to use our shower facilities, a towel for after class. Do not worry if you forget, we hire large towels for £1.
Our classes provide a secure, intimate, comfortable and calm environment for you to connect with your baby and with your body during your pregnancy. The main aim is to help you work with helpful tools, breathing exercises (pranayama) and physical postures (asanas) that could support you during and after pregnancy and into your motherhood journey. During class, we can also explore various exercises that come useful during labour for a more active birth experience. These classes will help you to maintain physical strength and flexibility, focusing on breathing, mindfulness, and relaxation regardless of your previous yoga experience.
Together we will explore various ways to enjoy the benefits of yoga while respecting your body and acknowledging any common pregnancy discomforts and symptoms such as pelvic girdle pain (PGP), nausea and sickness, heart-burn, tiredness, cramps, carpal tunnel syndrome, and lower back pain. The classes also leave a deep focus on mindfulness, body awareness and the use of visualisation and breathing techniques to support relaxation during pregnancy, labour and childbirth. You can attend classes from 12 weeks in pregnancy.
We recommend that you are hydrated before and during the class and encourage water drinking throughout. Please eat at least two hours before class and if you are hungry just before, grab something light like fruit or a health bar.
