Pregnancy Yoga Classes
Yoga is a wonderful way to connect to and support the extraordinary changes that transpire as you support a new life. At the Yoga Institute we offer a pre-natal yoga program dedicated to supporting your wellbeing during pregnancy and beyond.
Classes are appropriate for all stages of pregnancy gentle and steady, breath focused and designed to support you during pregnancy and prepare you physically and emotionally for birth and your journey to motherhood.
At class you will learn:

- learn asana sequences to support good posture, build strength and relieve physical tension
- build body awareness and mindfulness utilising the practices of Yoga to promote self care and restore balance
