I attended pregnancy yoga classes with the wonderful Marie at Gently Strong Yoga through all three of my pregnancies. It was the most beneficial preparation I could have done for birth. It strengthened my body and prepared my heart and mind, The classes were a peaceful refuge where I knew I would have a chance to rest and reflect. I met other mums who are some of my closest friends and who I lean on constantly for support with the ups and downs of motherhood.
The breath work I learnt in the yoga classes took me through my births and I still use now to calm anxiety. It was the profound effect that these classes had on me which inspired me to do my pre and post-natal yoga training. I am a huge advocate of yoga for daily life. Whilst I am still very much on a journey with yoga, I hope I can help you in your journey through pregnancy and early motherhood with my yoga classes.
My pregnancy yoga classes aim to stretch and strengthen your body, help reduce stress and promote a calm and healthy pregnancy. Through breath, movement and relaxation, you will have the space to connect to your growing babies, explore the journey through pregnancy and prepare for birth.
