Pregnancy Yoga / Mum and Baby Yoga Classes

Pregnancy Yoga Classes

It is so important to stay active and healthy during pregnancy, and Pregnancy Yoga is a fantastic way to exercise and is perfectly safe for you and your baby. It is also a wonderful way to take that much needed time out of your busy week to pause, reflect, move, breath & body with your baby.

Classes will include gentle movements, breathwork & relaxation to support the great physical & emotional demands of pregnancy. Move and strengthen your ever-adapting body as baby grows and in preparation for labour. As a Women’s Health Physiotherapist Ruth will be able to help you learn how to look after your pelvic floor pre & post-natally.

My class is suitable for all fitness levels and no experience of yoga is necessary. You can join anytime following your 12 week scan.

Research suggests that pregnancy yoga can offer the following benefits:

  • Improves sleep
  • Reduces stress & anxiety
  • Increases strength, flexibility & endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
  • Decreases lower back pain, headaches, nausea & shortness of breath

Parent & Baby Yoga Classes

Having a baby is life changing! Community and support is everything in the first few months and attending a parent and baby yoga class is a great way for you to meet other new parents in your area. It is also a lovely opportunity for you to spend quality time with your baby.

Led by a Women’s Health Physiotherapist, classes include post natal yoga and professional advice for mums to rediscover, strengthen and support their post-natal body. As new mum’s we don’t always know what is ‘normal’ with regard to post natal recovery, so it is so important to get some advice and guidance – Ruth is happy to chat in or out of class if you have any questions or concerns.

Classes are baby led – feel free to feed/cuddle your baby and move when you can! There’ll also be lots of interaction with baby – songs, sensory play & baby massage.

Classes are suitable once you and your baby have had your 6-8 week check up.

  • Really lovely pregnancy yoga class, great labour preparation 👍🏻

  • Absolutely adored Ruth’s prenatal yoga course. I’m kind of a repeat beginner to yoga, but Ruth totally tailored the class to suit each of us so it was all well within my ability and I really enjoyed it. I was feeling a little ropey, around 33 weeks (sore, stiff, achy etc) but after doing this course I’m now 37 weeks and am well up for a few more weeks of pregnancy, definitely couldn’t have said that before. Also, it felt really special as a second time Mum with a full-of-beans toddler to have an hour a week to focus on myself and the baby ❤️
