During my pregnancy yoga classes there is a heavy emphasis on the preparation and strengthening of the pelvis and pelvic floor for your labour.
Alongside mental and emotional support to encourage meeting your baby and parenting in an informed and empowered way. My classes recognise that each pregnancy and birth that a women experiences is a transformative Rite of Passage in her life. They are suitable from 14 weeks up until birth.
Mandy’s pregnancy yoga classes are a great way to see you through your pregnancy, giving you really helpful, practical techniques and exercises with a lovely teacher who encourages you to think about the spiritual side of pregnancy and birth while remaining balanced in views and completely non-judgemental of everyone’s choices. It also connects you with other mums-to-be which helps you realise that everything your feeling is normal!
What happens during a pregnancy yoga class?
Asanas (yoga postures) focus on spinal alignment and the re-distribution of weight throughout the body as your baby grows. Prananyama (breathing techniques) are learned to utilise throughout your pregnancy, labour and into your parenting, as well as yoga nidra (mental and physical relaxation techniques).
Throughout the class reasons for the practices performed are offered and time is given to allow the participants to genuinely experience the effect of the yoga practice by combining the breath with the movement of the body. Each session runs in accordance with the due dates of the women present with special practices such as the 'Golden Thread' and 'Birthing Breath' breathing practices learned to help prepare the women's spontaneous breath for labour.
The group dynamic in my classes is very important and I endeavor to create a warm and welcoming space. Providing a weekly time to sink deeply into nurturing yourself and connecting to your baby growing within you. Classes are taught in a circle with opportunity for sharing and making new friendships.
