Pre / Postnatal Yoga

Yoga is a wonderful way to create a deeper connection with your body and your baby during pregnancy and beyond. It is important to listen to your body needs and to accommodate the changes that are occurring and taking the time out for a regular yoga practice will help you to do this.

It is recommended that you wait for the pregnancy to be firmly established before practicing yoga, so ideally waiting until your 2nd trimester, unless you have a regular practice and and are not pregnant for the first time.

If you are trying yoga for the first time, a specialised pregnancy yoga class is ideal, as trying to keep up in a standard class may be too strenuous.

Movements to avoid:

Deep back bends. Holding postures for too long. Inversions if you do not have experience. Deep twists.
