Pregnancy yoga

 

 

 

 

when can you start?

Pregnancy yoga can be practised from the 13th week of pregnancy right up to your due date.

If Pilates is part of your usual exercise regime you can start at any time through your pregnancy. If you are new to Pilates you can start any time after 13 weeks of pregnancy.

make sure of your place

Our pre-natal classes are very popular. Register for your classes during the first trimester, so that when you are ready to start we are more likely to be able to offer you a place.

classes

pilates for pregancy – This class is specifically designed for pregnancy, to maintain your strength and posture and assist your labour.

yoga for pregnancy An ideal practice to help ease the natural changes taking place in the body, and safely keep the body toned and supple without strain, whilst preparing for the physical demands of childbirth and motherhood. Classes consist of postures and breathing exercises adapted from classical Hatha yoga. The aim is to strengthen the body and prepare it for birth, and to alleviate discomforts common during pregnancy - such as lower back pain, pelvic pain, heartburn, indigestion, swollen joints, breathlessness, tiredness and sleep disturbances. Daytime and evening classes.

organise your own post-natal group?

If a group of you would like to come together, we would be glad to organise a special post natal class for you. Minimum of 5 people, but we may be able to help you make up the numbers. Just email bookings@boco-uk.com

book a course

Courses run for 6 weeks and are ongoing. During holidays we run ad-hoc single sessions. You can book one course as a 'taster' before deciding whether to join as a post natal member. We stagger the start dates of the Tuesday and Thursday courses so there will be a course starting soon that you can join.

If the course is not full, you may be able to have a single session as a taster to check that the timing suits you and your baby.
