Pregnancy Yoga

PREGNANCY YOGA

Pregnancy is a great personal journey for any woman and is a time of mental and physical change. It can also be a challenging time, as adjustments are necessary as the body starts to change shape. For this reason, many women are now turning to pregnancy yoga. A pregnancy yoga practice can help address some of these mental and physical changes in a positive way. Women who practise yoga during pregnancy are able to be really present in their bodies and connect with their unborn child. In addition to this, yoga has a calming effect on the mother. This calm is also transmitted to the baby.

OUR CLASSES

Yoga Mama Wellness is affiliated to the Yoga Mama Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training School. As a result, we specialise in Pregnancy Yoga at our studio in Putney, south-west London. We keep our classes small deliberately, with an average of 6-12 students per class. This allows for individual attention and support from our team of highly qualified and experienced teachers. We offer in studio, online and 1:1 Pregnancy Yoga classes.

ATTENDING THE STUDIO

We have reduced our in studio class capacity to 6 in order to allow correct (1m+) social distancing. We kindly request students follow the guidelines below.

Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your scheduled class and use a face covering in all communal areas. You can remove this once inside the studio. Remember to wash your hands or use sanitising gel before entering the studio. Before entering the studio, we offer students pre-class temperature screenings.

We have delimited mat spaces in order to help you stay physically distanced. Please bring your own mat and any props you wish to use, as we are unable to provide mats or props at present. We do have some mats and props on sale if required.

Teachers will not be offering hands-on adjustments for the time being. Finally, we ask you keep personal belongings to a minimum.

For more information, read our Covid-19 Policy.

ATTENDING ONLINE

Please sign in or sign up for your class as normal. Enrolment for online classes closes 60 minutes before the class start time, so book early to avoid disappointment. Please note, online class bookings are not valid on our in-studio classes.

Check your inbox for an email from us with the ZOOM meeting link around 15 minutes before the start of the class. Join the ‘meeting’ 5 minutes or so before the class starts with your audio and video switched on so that the teacher can say hello. You can then go off and do other things or get settled before the class starts.

Please ensure your device is charged sufficiently for the duration of the class (60 minutes).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

BREATHING TECHNIQUES IN PREGNANCY YOGA

Breathing techniques learnt in pregnancy yoga can be used at anytime during pregnancy and many women find them very useful when giving birth. Focusing on the breath can have a profound effect; by learning to control the breath women may feel empowered and more in control of their thoughts and body.

HOW DOES PREGNANCY YOGA DIFFER FROM OTHER STYLES

Pregnancy yoga differs from general yoga classes, inasmuch we adapt many of the classical poses to accommodate the changes in the body. Twists are open and poses are fluid and nurturing for the mum to be. This creates space in the body and helps to alleviate some of the common ailments often associated with pregnancy such as backache, heartburn, swollen limbs, etc.

THE BENEFITS OF PREGNANCY YOGA

By practising yoga, the body is strengthened and toned. Many women find that they regain their shape and fitness more quickly after giving birth. In addition to this, spending time in a pregnancy yoga class with other women can be an emotionally bonding experience.
