“Pregnancy Yoga is a preparation to slowing the body and mind down, removing the need to control, instilling a sense of acceptance and learning how to go with the flow, be excited about the unknown. Women have so many pressures placed on them by society that pregnancy is almost a way of turning everything they know on it’s head and starting a fresh. No preconceptions, just discovery; That is not to say women are encouraged to remain ignorant of the process, the opposite is true, women are encouraged to research, make themselves aware of the options and ask questions, most importantly trust their instincts as a woman and a mother. In the same way you would prepare your body for a marathon, pregnancy yoga offers this preparation for both mind and body”
“I loved the feeling of connecting, being told to place my hand on my baby and breathe into my belly - the place where my baby lives, reminded me exactly what was going on inside me, it’s lovely to be given permission to do that”
