Pregnancy Yoga

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

Following a year of teaching in and around London as well as assisting The Yoga People on their London trainings, she set off for Bali to train in Yin Yoga, Taoist Chinese Medicine and Qi Gong with Sebastian Pucelle and Murielle Burlier, which revolutionised her own practice and teaching. She then completed her training in Pre and Postnatal Yoga with Yoga London whilst pregnant with her second child and has been teaching pregnant yogis around London ever since. She is passionate about yoga within her local community and believes yoga should be for everyone.
