Why Prenatal Yoga?
Designed to support your changing bodies through the beginning phases of your motherhood journey; each week we’ll explore a different area of the body and create a relaxing and calm space for you to soak up this exiting time – these classes will benefit your physical body as much as your emotional state.
We recommend beginning after your first trimester, and it’s preferred you consult with your doctor prior to commencement.

Both Mums & Bubs and Prenatal classes can be purchased individually, in 5 or 10 Class Passes – they’re also included in the Unlimited Memberships, perfect if you have an opportunity to sneak away for some ‘me time’. We have students whom practice frequently in our regular Vinyasa and Slow Flow classes (however only permissible if you have an existing practice), with some direction and reassurance you can adapt any class to suit where you’re at in life.
Please ensure you notify your teacher if attending a regular class; and if practicing during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, please seek your treating practitioners approval.
