Benefits of Yoga for Pregnancy and Birth

Yoga can help to empower a woman through her pregnancy, birth, postnantal recovery and journey through motherhood. Yoga offers her the opportunity to be at ease and at home with herself,  to be in touch with her own body, intuition and connect with her baby or babies; not only in the yoga class but within her daily life. Yoga can enable her to feel more comfortable and nourished, and to feel more confident in her transition to and throughout motherhood.

To join you don’t need to have done Yoga before, in fact being pregnant is a wonderful time to start. You can come along whenever you feel ready.


You might find that resting during the first trimester is beneficial, and a practice such as Yoga Nidra might help in that resting. You may want to ask your midwife or health practitioner if this class is suitable for you.
