You need this class in pregnancy!

Join me for gentle & restorative pregnancy yoga that will balance & strengthen your changing body. Through the classes you'll become familiar with breathing techniques & movement that will help you during pregnancy, labour and birth and each week we finish with a gorgeous relaxation.

As a hypnobirthing teacher I’m passionate about supporting you to feel strong, calm and confident however you're preparing to meet your baby so classes have hypnobirthing and birth prep woven throughout.

You'll find a relaxed & welcoming space where you can take time out to tune into your body & your baby and meet other pregnant people in the area. I can’t wait to see you on the mat! No yoga experience needed.

"Going to Steph’s pregnancy yoga has been the best decision that I have made in my pregnancy. Not only have I been able to keep aches and pains away, but I have learned about different positions could work for me when giving birth and also how to guide your baby into the best possible position for birth. At 34 weeks my baby is head down already and I am sure that pregnancy safe yoga has helped with this. Then there is the social side. I didn’t know any local, expecting or new mums and now I feel like I have found a real support network of mummy’s." Emma, High Wycombe

Why come to Pregnancy Yoga?

Yoga during pregnancy is amazing - for your body, your baby and your mind! Taking time out to tune into your body and connect with your baby during a class helps you to feel calm and prepared for birth. 
 

The yoga poses we practise in class are all suitable for the second and third trimesters and are chosen to help alleviate the aches and pains that come with pregnancy. We practise breathing techniques that will relax you during pregnancy and that you'll find super helpful during labour too. Moving your body will create balance in your pelvis, supporting your baby to find an optimum position for birth. Plus you'll gently build strength, preparing your body for birth and the postnatal period.

 

A recent study into the effects of practising yoga in pregnancy concluded that "Evidence highlights positive effects of pregnancy yoga on anxiety, depression, perceived stress, mode of birth and duration of labour.” (Corrigan et al 2022)

The social side of my pregnancy yoga classes also means you'll have an awesome network of mum friends during pregnancy and once your babies are born. Our WhatsApp group is very active and we meet up for coffee and cake - with bumps and babies!

"I did pregnancy yoga with Steph from 16 weeks and I really noticed the benefits early on. I slept much better after class, had less hip aches and was generally more free and comfortable. This meant I could also use the movements I learned in class during the rest of the week and it was fantastic for the rest of my pregnancy." Laura, Thame
