Pre-natal? Post-natal? Trying to conceive?

We have something for you too HERE.



What is it?

Our pre and post-natal sessions are more of a movement class rather than a yoga class, although the principles of strength, stamina and alignment are all still very much present, as our sessions seek to prepare our clients for birth and post pregnancy.

If you have been practicing yoga you are very welcome in our Introductory yoga courses as Iyengar teachers are fully qualified to assist your needs. However it is not advised to start yoga if you are new to yoga, this is why we have a specific class for you.

Who’s it for?

As the name suggests, the sessions and courses are suitable for ladies at any stage of their pregnancy, and for those who have also already had their baby and are looking to recover both mentally and physically. Please note that our classes post natal courses are suitable for women who have had babies at any point in the past 24 months, as this still counts as post-natal.

Iyengar Yoga Taster Session

Never done yoga and want to give it a try?


Why should I get involved?

Unlike other classes that are merely adapted for pre and post-natal clients, our sessions are specifically aimed at those separate groups, and are planned, monitored and delivered by qualified specialists who bring a wealth of traditional and alternative approaches and experiences to the role.

Pregnancy and childbirth, and even preparing your body for conception, can be deeply stressful and challenging times for your mind and body that will change you in permanent ways. If you fall into any of these groups, then you and your baby can only benefit from the positive effects of our specialist pre and post-natal movement classes.

When are the sessions?

Please take a look at our timetable for our group sessions running on Friday nights and Saturday mornings, but alternatively you can book in for a one-to-one session.

Note that our Iyenga Yoga sessions also cater for pre and post-natal clients, but we will always signpost you towards our specialist to ensure that you are gaining the most benefit from your class with women in the same circumstances as you.

What do I do next?

Simply book on in advance to a class or workshop, turn up dressed comfortably, and be ready to relax and work with your instructor to centre on elements that will help you during pregnancy and prepare you for after the birth.

Birth partners are of course welcome, and feel free to chat with our team both before and after your session, as we work closely with midwives and women’s health physiotherapists to provide the best information, advice and guidance possible. As our sessions are a little different to traditional western classes, prepare to have an open mind!
