Pregnancy Yoga

Mondays
7.30pm - 8.45pm

Practising yoga during pregnancy gives women a fuller understanding of their own body and the changes taking place because an awareness of the body is being developed through the asana practice, through pranayama and through meditation. Yoga gives women the self-knowledge to take control of their labour, to actually experience it rather than see it as something they need to get through and to approach it with less apprehension. And beyond that it prepares them for becoming a mother. The classes are a nurturing environment which include asana (postures) to strengthen and build stamina, breath work (pranayama), meditation and a long delicious relaxation.

£15 per session or 6 classes for £60

Level: Suitable for women from their second trimester of pregnancy.

Location: Hoadly Road, Streatham, SW16

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is defined as a type of yoga that consists of a series of poses executed in swift succession combined with deep controlled breathing.

Her classes are flowing and fun as she places emphasis on movement, breath and concentration.

Siobhan Power // vinyasa FLOW Yoga TEACHER

Siobhan's passion for yoga started 8 years ago after attending regular classes in her hometown Johannesburg, South Africa. She experienced the life changing benefits and decided that she wanted to teach yoga to children and adults. She later pursued her dream of going to India and received classical training from Ganga Devi of the Himalayan Yoga Institute. She's done various trainings in Vinyasa Flow Yoga which is the style in which she conducts her classes. Her classes are dynamic, yet playful and flowing, placing emphasis on concentration and breath. Yoga has taught her that with self-love, compassion and the ability to not take life too seriously, she's capable of anything, and this is what she hopes to pass on to her students.
