There is no pressure, just do as much or as little as you wish depending on your phase or trimester.
How long after pregnancy is it recommended to wait before coming to Yoga?
This really depends on the individual and their delivery circumstances, whether they had a small/large baby, a simple/difficult birth or a “C” section. Guidance by their GP, Midwife or Consultant as to when to start any exercise should be gained first particularly if there were any complications or you had a “C” section.
What checks will be done before starting the class?
We recommend that first time participants arrive 10 minutes early so the instructor can run through the class with them, verbal do’s and don’ts, how far they are into their pregnancy and do a pre-activity check. We also ask that participants have had their 12 week scan before participating.
What if I’m unable get into a yoga position?
It should be possible to do all postures, no matter how gentle or deep you come into them. If you are not happy with a particular position, then simply don’t do it. You are encouraged to only work within your limits and you will find that the more you do, the more you progress. The emphasis is for you to be comfortable at all times.
Can my birthing partner come along?
Yes they can but they would be classed as another participant and so would need to pay due to the space and availability of spaces.
How far into my pregnancy can I attend for?
This depends on your pregnancy and how you feel. We wouldn’t recommend attending within 4 weeks of your due date. We also recommend seeking medical advice during your pregnancy on whether you can continue to attend.
