Welcome and embrace this special time of pregnancy by delving into mindful pregnancy yoga.
A way to connect to yourself and bub, to strengthen and relax your body to allow the natural rhythm of changes taking place to flow. We’ll move with breath, locate and engage pelvic floor muscles, plus learn to tune in to what bub and body needs during the different stages of your pregnancy. Open to women at all stages of pregnancy and no prior yoga experience is necessary.
