What is Pregnancy Yoga?

Yoga is both safe and beneficial during the 2nd and 3rd Trimesters of Pregnancy.

As the meaning of Yoga (Union, Yoke) suggests, it is the unity of body, mind and spirit. In pregnancy, this 'joining' or union', the intertwining of mother and baby and the intricate bond and connection that lasts a lifetime; is never more apparent.

The physicality of yoga provides the opportunity for a pregnant woman's changing body to find balance and alignment; emotionally and physically. Therefore relieving and alleviating back pain, sciatica, cramps, RLS (restless legs), SPD (symphysis pubis diastasis), Rectus separation, anxiety, insomnia, headaches. The meditative breathing and sequencing of postures (asana); calms the adrenals and nervous system, creating a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.

Bellies & Bubs Prenatal yoga classes are ideal for beginners through to more advanced students. All postures (asana) are adapted to support the individual needs of each woman, which is why classes are kept small. These specialised classes also provide guidance and education on optimal foetal positioning, pelvic space and how to 'open' the pelvis, active birth positions and birth skills techniques.
