Pregnancy yoga: Each week we will participate in gentle breathing exercises which will help you throughout your pregnancy and during labour. The breathing can help from anything from calming you down, connecting with your baby to helping you sleep and are especially helpful for your labour. We will also practise a variety of gentle Hatha yoga poses to help keep your body as mobile as possible during your pregnancy. Pregnancy yoga is also a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow mums to be and make friendships for life.
