6 WEEK ONLINE YOGA FOR PREGNANCY AND BIRTH COURSE – next one starts 25/5/2020
A week by week immersion into yoga and mindfulness-based techniques designed to support you – body, mind and spirit – throughout your pregnancy and empower you towards having the birth you envision. Suitable for absolute beginners through to more experienced yoginis.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Yoga Asana: learn a blend of gentle warm ups, more dynamic movements and flows (vinyasa) and some held postures that balance openness with strength and stamina, and help you feel comfortable in your changing body.
Pranayama: harness your energy through breath and awareness. Make breath your best friend so you really can just breathe your baby out!
Visualisation and Chanting: learn powerful yoga-based tools to help you stay focused and work with the intensity in labour.
Restorative postures: discover the healing power of deep rest.
Relaxation and Meditation: open to fully experiencing this moment, just as it is.
Over our time together we will also talk about preparing for an active birth, pelvic floor health and integrity, and how yoga might help us in managing common pregnancy-related complaints eg morning sickness, cramping, sciatic pain, insomnia, pelvic instability, lower back pain, circulation issues, depression and anxiety etc (*None of this should be seen as a replacement for advice given by medical professionals… )
The main content of this course is delivered in a Monday night Zoom session. These are then supported by weekly formatted emails with summaries and background info on what we’ve covered in the sessions, plus helpful links to further reading etc to compliment your practice.
In attending this course you will also get access to a 2nd session each week on Fridays evenings which will include time for a chat, guided relaxations and/or meditations and some more gentle stretches. I know life gets busy, but I encourage you to attend this practice session as often as you can!

Friday Evenings 5pm – 6.15pm

** These classes are suitable for any stage of pregnancy, however if you have any concerns please speak to your midwife/doctor or get in touch through matriyoga’s contact page. Some students do prefer to wait until their second trimester especially if they are new to yoga.
CASUAL PRENATAL YOGA CLASSES:
providing ongoing supported practice for Matri Yoga students
This is a weekly casual class for people who have already completed a Matri Yoga workshop or course. It will build on practices and techniques covered in the course and aims to continue supporting you through your pregnancy!
The Tuesday session will be a general practice, the Friday evening will give us an opportunity to catch up, for you to ask questions and for us to do some more gentle practice together (mindfulness, breathing and movement). This session will also include students who are attending the Yoga for Pregnancy and Birth course.
