Pregnancy Yoga / Prenatal Yoga

Tuesday 19.30-20.30  

The Clifton Centre, Ashdene Road, Bicester OX26 2BH

Ladies choose to come to pregnancy yoga classes for many reasons, including: 

  • To learn how to relieve back, neck and shoulder aches
  • To learn breathing techniques for relaxation prior to and during the birth
  • To stretch and exercise in a safe environment, under the guidance of a specially trained teacher
  • To have another way of bonding with your baby
  • To meet other Mums to be

 

Your teacher is Elaine Whittaker. I've been teaching yoga for about 10 years having trained for three years with the British Wheel of Yoga to gain my teaching Diploma, and have subsequently undertaken specialist pregnancy yoga teacher training with yogagro.  I also have a Level 3 qualification in adapting exercise for pre and postnatal clients.  You can therefore be sure you are in safe hands. Everything we do in the sessions is tailored to suit the needs of pregnant women.  

 

Classes are structured into courses of four weeks which you can attend from week 14 of your pregnancy.

 

At the sessions you will:

  • Practice gentle movements and stretches to relieve back ache
  • Discover ways of letting go tightness in neck and shoulders 
  • Learn breathing techniques for relaxation prior to and during the birth
  • Enjoy releasing tension from mind and body
  • Know that you are exercising in a safe environment, under the guidance of a specially trained teacher
  • Experience new ways of bonding with your baby
  • Meet other Mums to be

 

Each course is slightly different so that you can attend as many as you wish during your pregnancy.

 

I take a little break during the summer,, so the next course will start in September.
