Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy is such a unique and wonderful time. I've used yoga during both of my pregnancies and I am excited to share how yoga can help you to keep calm and connected to your baby, feel energised and more positive during your pregnancy and when giving birth. Beginners to yoga are very welcome to join us.

Pregnancy Yoga: Text

We will use flowing sequences to develop your strength and stamina.  These movements can help to ease discomfort in the pelvis or back and keep you upright and active.  Many of these poses are a great way to help your baby move into an optimal birthing position and can be wonderful birthing positions too. 
We will explore different breathing techniques which are a powerful way to ease away any anxieties or difficult sensations and pregnant people often report that they are the most useful tool when giving birth. At the end of every session, you will enjoy a blissfully soothing relaxation (often the most popular part!).

Whether you are new to yoga or a regular practitioner, everyone is welcome to join this friendly and relaxed class.  It's highly beneficial for any kind of birth plan. We start every class with an informal chat so you can start to build a supportive tribe that becomes even more important once your baby arrives.

Geri (first time mummy) and baby Fynley, Northampton

I’d never tried yoga before I was pregnant. I prefer dancing or energetic games normally, however when I reached 20 weeks I knew I needed something to relax with but also keep me mobile. I’m normally not one for relaxing either, if I ever have a massage there is always one part of my body still tense as I’m not good at shutting off.

With pregnancy yoga though, I learnt to breathe away my tension and quite happily (snored sometimes) my way through the end of a session. The exercises were easy enough for an unfit beginner but also helped my achy hips stay more supple. The breathing techniques and various positions we learnt not only kept me mobile but ended up being positions I used through the birthing process.

I was lucky enough to use a birthing pool for the majority of my labour and only came out of it for the last 10minutes to actually give birth as that was what felt comfortable. The 8 hours in the pool are all a bit of a blur, but I remember the experience fondly. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t painful, it was it’s labour, but I do remember breathing through the urges of bearing down and visualising the picture I had come to create in the yoga cool down sessions. The techniques I had learnt gave me something else to focus on and although I probably didn’t execute the breathing as a professional yogi should, it meant for me, I had a natural, drug and gas free birth and I can remember every special moment.

This may not be for everyone but the pregnancy yoga sessions themselves were definitely a lovely way to relax, take care of me for an hour or so a week time and also meet some lovely ladies. Thanks Veronica for chilling me out!

I started yoga with Veronica at 22 weeks pregnant and I’m so glad I did. Everyone was so friendly and Veronica makes you feel so welcome. Straight away you feel at ease and comfortable.

This was my first experience of yoga, id always wanted to try it, and found it so beneficial during my pregnancy. I suffered with pelvic pain towards the end of my pregnancy and found yoga really helped with the pains. I’d find i would leave group each week feeling much more comfortable especially as baby got bigger. 

One of my favourite parts of the sessions was the relaxation at the end. I used hypnobirthing and these relaxation techniques during my labour and found this practice during group really helpful. 

Thank you so much for the lovely experience Veronica!! 

Steph (second time Mum-to-be), Towcester.

I started Pregnancy Yoga with Veronica from week 14 and am still going now at 37 weeks pregnant!

The classes have been wonderful! Relaxing whilst offering support and exercise during pregnancy.  There's also a focus on how to use yoga as part of a positive birth experience.  Some real 'me time'! Also a great way to make some mummy friends ready for maternity leave! Veronica is friendly, welcoming and great at what she does.  Couldn't recommend more.

I'm really looking forward to doing baby massage classes with her once baby is here!
