Prenatal Yoga Benefits
Your body is preparing for something extraordinary. Physical demands, hormonal fluctuations and external stressors can be challenging. But these are challenges that can be overcome with our specially created prenatal yoga classes.
Yoga is the ideal tool for helping to strengthen the muscles that assist in the birth of your precious baby and to help to restore your body postpartum.

What is Prenatal Yoga?
Prenatal yoga is a discipline that combines physical exercise, breath control, relaxation, positive thinking and meditation to achieve harmony of mind and body. Prenatal Yoga focuses on positions that are specifically designed for pregnant women’s bodies that assist in strength building for birth preparation.
I have never done Yoga. Can I still do Prenatal Yoga?
For sure! As long as your doctor has cleared you for physical activities during pregnancy, then yoga is the ideal choice to help you to prepare physically and mentally for delivery and postpartum.
When can I start prenatal yoga?
You can start at any time in your pregnancy.
In the first trimester prenatal yoga can help to energize the body with a gentle workout that can relieve lethargy and help reduce feelings of nausea through breathing exercises.
In the second trimester energy levels have typically increased, and as your body grows and changes we can use yoga to help ease stiffness, open the hips and increase core strength.
In the third trimester, yoga can help to stretch out any areas of stiffness, while specifically working on the squatting posture and breathing techniques to help you find inner calm and prepare for labour.
If your doctor allows it, you can do yoga throughout your pregnancy, just remember to never push yourself past the point of comfort.
What are the benefits of Prenatal Yoga?
Yoga has a huge number of benefits for the prenatal body, and it offers the added bonus of making Mom feel awesome. Through yoga you will discover valuable tools that will assist you during labour and during the postpartum period including:
- Improved balance as body weight distribution shifts
- Methods of breathing that enable correct movement of the pelvic floor muscle in preparation for birth and post-birth repair
- Decreased stress
- Improved sleep
- Stretches and positions encourage the baby to move into the correct birth position
- Increased connection between mom and baby
- Calm, peace and tranquillity

What should I wear?
A well-fitted sports bra is suggested as your breasts will be changing regularly during pregnancy and its important to have well fitting support during any movement! Wearing comfortable clothing that will stretch with each pose is ideal. Wearing layers if possible will ensure you can remove some clothing if you get too warm.
How long is each class?
Each yoga session is just over one hour-long; you should always go at your own pace. The body will experience peaks of highs and lows throughout the practice and it is important not to overwork you or your baby.
How many classes should I attend?
Research has shown that 3 sessions per week of prenatal yoga has enormous emotional and physical health benefits for mom and baby. Studies have also found that moms who practiced prenatal yoga had fewer issues in labour. Life is busy and can get hectic planning for a new baby, so we understand if you would like to adjust your yoga sessions to fit your schedule.
Conveniently we offer 3 classes per week, evening time twice a week and at midday once a week on a Friday.
