Pregnancy Yoga

“Thank you ever so much for your fantastic pregnancy yoga teaching. During my labour I remembered to breathe deeply and slowly, even in the worst contractions and everyone commented on how calm I managed to stay throughout, which I am sure was all down to how you taught me to control my breathing. The birthing ball was definitely invaluable too as I spent much of the first stages of labour leaning over it, thank you once again”

Pregnancy yoga classes

A safe and friendly pregnancy yoga class is held at Sothvillle Centre on Wedneday evenings from 6.15pm to 7.15pm. You can start any time after 12 weeks. For comfort and effective posture, we use yoga mats and blocks. If you have your own please bring them to class and you could even bring other comfort props too such as yoga balls or cushions all of which support the pregnant body.  Contact Purely Pregnant for more information and to book your space.

If you are unable to make this class at the moment, Suzi could offer you personal sessions so she can really tailor the yoga to suit your needs and particularly help your body.

Why is it so good for you and baby?

  • Yoga can help you be more physically and mentally comfortable during your pregnancy
  • Any common problems of pregnancy such as backache, anxiety, constipation, heartburn and pelvic discomfort can be eased
  • It will provide you with ‘me-time’, where you can look after yourself and your growing baby
  • Yoga can safely prepare you for labour and can offer positions for birthing
  • You will develop controlled breathing patterns that will support your birthing process
  • Yoga can help you begin to form a special relationship with your growing baby
  • Yoga will promote relaxation and an attitude of ‘letting-go’ to let your body do what comes naturally
  • The classes are good for social contact with other mums-to-be and the exchange of experience can make you feel part of a supportive group
  • The yoga, Hypnobirth and active-birth information from the teacher will help you feel better equipped to deal with the pregnancy, the labour and being a new mum
