Suitable from 14 weeks of pregnancy, these classes are held on Sunday and Tuesday evenings, bookable in 6 or 7 week blocks (although you can join part way through a block when a mat becomes free). Pregnancy is the perfect time to begin practicing yoga, as your increased body awareness will help you to tune into to how you are feeling in a posture, or whilst practicing various breathing techniques.
The classes give you time to rest and replenish in what tends to be increasingly busy lives.
Yoga asanas (postures) are adapted for pregnancy and help to soothe common pregnancy ailments such as lower back pain, heartburn, and sciatica. We also look at breath work to help guide you through labour; sound work to help bring your focus within and to baby; and we always end with a lovely relaxation.
Classes are small and all equipment is provided, although a pillow is often beneficial to help you become super comfy during the class.
This pregnancy yoga class is held in Bury, but easily accessible from the surrounding areas such as Radcliffe, Tottington, Ramsbottom, Bolton and Manchester.
