Pregnancy is truly a wonderful stage in your life. You are going through an incredible transformation. Pregnancy brings the whole new set of changes and challenges. Your body needs to cope up with the continuous changes occurring at physical, emotional, biological and psychological levels. Practicing Yoga in pregnancy makes sense as it prepares the mind and body to integrate the process of change that is taking place. By drawing your attention inward, your awareness of and connection with your baby is deepened, preparing you for the new responsibility. Practicing Yogic postures, breath awareness- pranayama and relaxation techniques is a stepping stone for the healthy mother and baby.

Regular Pregnancy classes run on Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30-12pm, booking not necessary, though advisable.
Note: Preggie girls are also invited to attend regular beginner classes and Restorative classes as long as the teacher is informed that you are pregnant. Avoid regular classes between weeks 11-15. It’s fine to still attend the pregnancy classes during that time if you are feeling fit and well.
Pregnancy creates new demands due to your ever-changing body. Your pregnant body is naturally and miraculously in a heightened state of awareness and creativity.
