Spring 2 sessions start Saturday 7th March 2020 - 10:30-11:45am
Little Blossom Pregnancy Yoga classes offer a warm and friendly environment to practice yoga learning how to safely keep your body supple and strong, creating space for your growing baby, helping to soothe away aches and pains and to keep your mind calm and relaxed, promoting a healthy, happy pregnancy and birth.
The six-week course will take you on a journey through the chakras, consisting of poses and sequences based on modified and adapted traditional Hatha yoga flows and postures.
This is a precious time and space where you can nurture yourself and celebrate your growing baby.
Prenatal yoga can helps to release muscular and emotional tension from your body, increase circulation to relieve general aches and pains as well as reducing back, shoulder and hip pain.
Yoga helps you improve and maintain good posture (even as your bump grows bigger), and improves the flexibility and tone of your muscles, reducing strain on your body. Practising yoga during pregnancy can help reduce pregnancy niggles such as discomfort caused by symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), pelvic girdle pain (PGP), sciatica, restless legs, indigestion and breathlessness.
Tips for an active labour and birth are given throughout the course, along with movements and positions that help get baby into optimal position for ease of birth and keep things moving in labour. You will learn breathing, visualisation and hypno-birthing techniques to use during labour for pain management and to encourage you to enter a calm, relaxed and blissful state.
Classes are kept small which allows for bonding as a group, helping you meet local mums-to-be and develop supportive friendships. The small group size also allows me to modify practices to suit the needs of all participants meaning that the classes are very safe and effective.
Most mums-to-be prefer to wait until after the first trimester to come to yoga class but feel free to book up in advance as space is limited... and can attend classes right up to the birth of your baby!
