“So great that you had just taught us contraction breathing techniques, this got me through 12 hours of 1st stage labour at home without any medication & just a bit of extra help from swaying on a swiss ball.
Thanks again for a brilliant pregnancy yoga course”.
The above was feedback received this past weekend from a very happy client who had been attending the weekly pregnancy yoga classes with me in Central Watford.
Women typically join pregnancy classes to help them relax and learn breathing techniques*. They also cite wanting to increase their flexibility, without realising that their flexibility is naturally being increased by way of the hormone relaxin which increases in pregnancy!
For me, it’s about really connecting with each and every woman, whether she attends for just one week or throughout the whole of her pregnancy.
It’s an absolute privilege to share this special time with women, and to also offer the years of training and experience I have gained from both my teaching and being a mother too.
My classes run weekly (term-time) on a Thursday evening 19.30 to 21.00 and can be attended either as a course or on a weekly, drop-in basis.
