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, Bonnie, 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.
