Pregnancy Yoga – Kensington
Pregnancy is a wonderful time to practice yoga, keeping your body healthy and your mind calm while deepening the bond with your growing baby.
At Midwives and Mothers, we offer regular pregnancy yoga classes to help mothers on their journey to motherhood. A regular practice has proven benefits of reducing stress, increasing vitality, improving fitness, and making the body both stronger and more flexible.
Our pregnancy yoga classes offer a safe and supportive environment for mothers to explore posture, breathing exercises and mindfulness meditations that meet the changing needs of your changing body.
Our pregnancy yoga teacher at Kensington, Grace, is an experienced teacher who has a deep understanding of both Yoga and of the many and varying pregnancy symptoms women may experience. She is passionate about supporting women on their journey through pregnancy and beyond.
Our Pregnancy Yoga classes aim to:
- improve overall body strength and flexibility
- create a sense of lift in the torso and space for the breath
- relieve the pain and discomfort of common pregnancy symptoms
- flow through movements of the body that can help with optimal foetal positioning
- provide breathing techniques that are proven to relax the body, reduce tension and stress, and improve alertness and presence
- provide relaxation and meditation opportunities
Our Kensington Pregnancy Yoga classes are held on Saturday Mornings 8:30-9:45amBook a Class Now!

Mums and Bubs Yoga
Mothers and Babies Yoga is a wonderful continuation of your pregnancy yoga practice or a wonderful new addition to your early time with your baby. It is both fun and soothing. Focus is on rebuilding core and pelvic strength, relieving the aches commonly associated with early mothering, and sharing a nurturing practice with your baby. Wear something comfortable, bring a blanket/rug for your baby to lie on and any toys she is enjoying
Here at MAMA, we feel very strongly about supporting mothers and babies after birth, so drop into a Mums and Bubs class to connect with other mothers and with a wide web of support. We offer a morning tea every Friday morning following the class, so even if you don’t feel you want to join a class that day, you are welcome to come with yoru baby and chat with others.
Our Mums & Bubs Yoga classes are held Fridays 10-11am at MAMA Kensington. Classes run in blocks of 5 sessions and payment is required before the block begins. Click below for dates and booking info or call us at (03)9376 7474 for more information.
