This class combines a gentle yoga-based stretching with information about pregnancy and birth. The aim is to improve physical and emotional well being, provide information about birth and increase the likelihood of a positive birth experience. The groups are a mix of first-time expectant mothers and those who’ve previously given birth so there’s lots of sharing of wisdom and tips within the group.

The classes offer a time-out from busy schedules, to relax and concentrate on yourself and your baby. Suitable from 14 weeks in pregnancy right up to birth, for complete beginners or those with some yoga experience.
