Introduction to Pregnancy Yoga
Prenatal yoga classes will help you during pregnancy, labour and after delivery. The emphasis of these sessions is on breathing, pelvic floor, stabilising the hips, strengthening the body ready for delivery and after birth, relaxation as well allowing you to make a deeper connection with your body and your baby as your body changes.
Learning and practising prenatal yoga will give you several benefits and will make you more resilient during and after pregnancy. The benefits last long after childbirth. No previous yoga experience is needed to take part in this session, all classes are designed for mixed ability.
Like all forms of yoga, prenatal yoga is more about the mind than the body. You will be able to reaffirm your faith in your physical and mental powers, gaining more control and awareness to move forward into the birthing stage with a much more confident and relaxed approach. One of the main benefits is breath awareness, which will help you focus attention on the right things during labour and delivery. It will help you connect with your body and your child through relaxation techniques.
When done correctly with a fully accredited yoga instructor, prenatal yoga is considered safe for both mother and child. However, there are essential differences between prenatal yoga and regular yoga. It is vital to understand these differences, primarily if you are already practising yoga.
