Pregnancy Yoga and Pregnancy Pilates

Want to exercise safely and meet other mums?

We have designed our classes specifically for women like you. Benefit from a relaxing space where you will meet other pregnant women to share your mutual journey.  A place where you can have your questions answered.

Enjoy informative and positive birth stories and positive messages about birth.

Build your knowledge and confidence as well as your physical wellbeing when you attend our specialised Yoga and Pilates classes throughout your pregnancy. 

We are here to support your pregnancy/birthing experience and our classes focus on everything you need:

breathing – relaxation – positions for birth
strength – tone – flexibility
friends – support – education

When your body moves, your baby benefits from extra blood flow, helping him/her to grow healthy and strong.

When you breathe calmly and relax, your baby receives those calming hormones.

You’ll leave every class feeling light, relaxed and excited about your baby’s birth. 

Pregnancy Yoga contains more stretching and internal focus.  Pregnancy Pilates contains more strength and postural work.  They complement each other and you can mix and match.  Included are 4 classes per week, tailored to suit your busy lifestyle.

When’s the best time to begin? As early as possible.  When’s the second-best time to begin? NOW!

Suitable from first trimester right through until birth. You can even start at 39 weeks!

You don’t have to be super-fit or flexible to practice yoga – it’s suitable for every pregnant woman.

By attending 1-2 classes per week, you will build your confidence, knowledge and expand your friendship circle.

All equipment is supplied.

Wear comfy, stretchy clothing and bring your water bottle.

For your comfort, don’t eat a large meal within an hour and a half of class starting.

Balance your Body class

Do you want a comfortable pregnancy and a straight-forward birth?

If so, you will require balance in your body and plenty of space for baby to get into a good position in your pelvis.  In this short and fun couple session, you and your partner will learn skills from Spinning Babies and Optimal Maternal Positioning:

  • lots of simple skills to keep you comfortable and avoid backache so you can sleep and move well during your pregnancy
  • ways to sit, stand, rest and move for pregnancy comfort and to encourage your baby into a good position
  • learn why labour is shorter and easier when baby’s facing the right way and not back-to-back/posterior/OP
  • be informed about the actions you can take if you go past your due date, if labour takes too long to start or if you’re having an induction

Classes are held once a month and are ideal for couples. If your partner is not available, or you are going through the pregnancy journey as a solo parent, we’ll find you another pregnant woman to team up with.  We encourage couples to attend a minimum 2-3 classes during pregnancy to perfect and practice the techniques.  It’s a wonderful way for you and your partner to learn together, connect with one another and bond with your baby.  Every class ends with a guided relaxation.
