Mamaste prenatal/pregnancy yoga classes are suitable for pregnant women from 14 weeks all the way until birth.
Attending a yoga class offers a beautiful way for you to connect with your baby whilst giving you the opportunity to build strength, stamina and flexibility. It can help you to relax throughout your pregnancy and prepare your body and mind for birthing your baby.
Classes will teach you invaluable breathing techniques for labour and birth, adapted postures to ensure effective practice that will help your changing body adapt – all in a safe and gentle way under the guidance of a qualified prenatal yoga instructor.
There is no need to have any yoga experience to join the class and necessary adaptations can be made.
Each week we have a different focus for our physical practice, these include:
Pelvic floor and womb yoga
Strength and flexibility
Optimal foetal positioning
The pelvis and pelvic girdle pain
Classes finish with a beautiful guided relaxation, teaching you how to bring calm to you and your baby. The classes work in perfect harmony with a hypnobirthing course or the birth prep workshop should you wish to enhance your journey.
It also gives you a great opportunity to meet other ‘mummies to be’ and start building your community. Our online classes include membership to a closed group and virtual 'mummy to be' meet ups.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I would 100% recommend Lucy's pregnancy yoga class. I started around 19 weeks pregnant & really enjoyed the yoga, relaxation and Lucy's knowledge about our pregnant bodies and hypnobirthing made me confident and excited for labour! Towards the end of my pregnancy Covid-19 meant our classes were cancelled but not wanting us to miss out Lucy quickly changed them to online and also arranged Zoom chats so we could still support each other through the uncertainty of being pregnant during a pandemic! She did all this whilst being pregnant herself! I'm now looking forward to hopefully joining her mum & baby yoga classes with my little girl whether they be in person or virtually.
