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 of 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 yoga teachers at Kensington, Lauren and Grace are experienced teachers who have a deep understanding of both Yoga and of the many and varying pregnancy symptoms women may experience. They are passionate about supporting women on their journey through pregnancy and beyond.
Some of the yoga techniques you will learn during these classes are:
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

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 tolie on and any toys she is enjoying.
Here at MAMA, we feel very strongly about supporting mothers and babies after birth, so drop in to 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, so even if you don’t feel you want to join a class that day, you are welcome to come with your baby and chat with others.
Our Mums & Bubs yoga classes are on every Friday at 10am-11am at MAMA Kensington
$23 for casual class, $100 for a 5 class pass or $180 for a 10 class pass
