Pregnancy Yoga (14+ wks)
Pregnancy Yoga | Prenatal Yoga
5 Week Prenatal Yoga Course (14+ weeks pregnant): 7.30pm, Wednesday 3rd May 2017
Gentle and safe pregnancy yoga is open to all levels and offers a refuge of peace and inspiration to celebrate your body and baby throughout pregnancy. Pregnancy Yoga classes focus on breathing, gentle stretching and include a generous relaxation to totally let go.
Prenatal yoga offers many wonderful benefits for the mother-to-be. Gentle stretching exercises will help ease new aches and pains of pregnancy that you may not have experienced before such as lower backache. Pregnancy yoga can help to strengthen the muscles in the back which help to support the weight of the baby. Prenatal classes also teach breathing methods to stay focused and keep the body and mind relaxed during labour. As the body’s balance is altered during pregnancy, prenatal yoga may help with stability. Pregnancy yoga can also ease the discomforts of pregnancy, such as moodiness, shortness of breath, swollen ankles, nausea, indigestion and insomnia.
Pregnancy yoga classes will teach you yoga postures to help you be more comfortable throughout your pregnancy, relaxation techniques and yoga for birth, allowing you to approach labour calmly and confidently. Classes are also a great way to meet other mums-to-be especially if you are new to the Clane area and a lovely safe space to share concerns and excitement.
