Yoga is a great way to prepare the body for labour,
birth and beyond. Practicing yoga during pregnancy improves strength,
stamina and flexibility. It also relieves tension and maintains good
posture (which is vital as the pregnancy progresses)
Classes consist of 4 parts
Breathing: Different techniques useful during labour and birth
Excercises/Postures: Specifically "designed" for pregnancy.
Relaxation/Meditation: letting go of worries, resting down and "connecting" with baby
Topic of the Day: a short talk on nutrition,
breastfeeding, birth breathing, list for hospital, list for dad to be,
pain relief... etc with relevant handout. This can also be a time to
deal with any questions or concerns.
