Your yoga ability for Prenatal Yoga
Don’t worry if you’ve never practised yoga before, it really makes no difference. Our classes are for all levels of yogic ability, from beginners to those with varying levels of experience and include traditional yogic areas of Pranayama (breathing exercises for life and birth), Asanas (postures), Shavasana and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation techniques).
My teaching method is all about you feeling comfortable and at ease, so every class is taught with you in mind and in a way that is accessible, ‘non-scary’, easy to follow, authentic, and safe for you and your changing body and growing baby.
Make some new friends
As a mum myself and a pregnancy and birth expert, I understand that it can be tough, and if you don’t have anyone around you who’s currently pregnant it’s not always that easy to talk about the more delicate and sometimes embarrassing issues which come with pregnancy. At YogaBumps prenatal yoga classes, you’re all in the same boat making it a great place to make friends and have a biccie at the end of class, and share what’s going on with you with others who understand.
What do I bring?
The cost of the class includes all yoga props: mats, blocks and cushions. The only thing you will need to bring occasionally will be a pregnancy or labour ball, which we recommend you have for use at home whilst pregnant and as an invaluable birthing tool. I’ll show you how to use it. Make sure it is the right size for you. If you are up to 5′ 8″ buy a 65cm ball, and if you are 5’8″ and over buy a 75cm ball.
What should I wear?
Please wear loose clothing so you can comfortably move around and perhaps throw a light blanket over during relaxation at the end if you like.
There will be light refreshments provided at the end but please do bring water to sip throughout the class to keep your body hydrated.
