We have been specialists in pregnancy yoga since 2005 and over the years have heard from hundreds of women what their needs are during their pregnancies. To allow us to adapt every class to those present we always begin by offering students the opportunity to discuss their needs that particular week. The result is that we tailor every class to those present and their individual requirements.
The postures are practised to support your body, helping you reduce aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and aid digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems (to name but a few benefits).
The breathing practices and dedicated relaxation elements help you feel calmer, improve sleep and boost energy... and give you time to connect to your baby and prepare for the life change ahead.
If you are new to yoga this is fine: more than half of our pregnancy students are, and complete beginners are welcome regardless of fitness or flexibility.
In the pregnancy yoga classes taught at The Yoga Village we also offer a labour preparation element in which you practice breathing techniques and movement suitable for labour and birth. We get to hear lots of birth stories and many women tell us what worked for them. So we include those practices in the classes. Many hundreds of women have told us afterwards that these techniques have been really useful.
