Pregnancy Yoga Classes
PRENATAL YOGA CLASSES GOLD COAST Studio
What Classes are pregnancy friendly?
We welcome pregnant mums-to-be into all of our yoga and barre classes. Yoga in pregnancy has numerous benefits that our classes can help you with but we always recommend checking with your doctor before beginning any new forms of exercise.
Start off with Slow Yoga. Even if you have plenty of yoga experience, we encourage you to start with our slower classes to get familiar with the changes in your body and take time to connect inward.
Feel like picking up the intensity? Flow Yoga, Grow Yoga and Barre can take you there. Just be sure to listen to your body and rest when you need to, it is important not to overheat.
There will be some exercises / poses that should be avoided throughout pregnancy. Our teachers will be able to guide you around these and give alternatives where needed. In general, avoid any movements that compress your belly or require strong abdominal activation (Lying prone, closed twists, crunches etc).
Remember any movements make you uncomfortable, or dizzy, take a moment to rest. Pregnancy is not a time to push through discomfort, you have enough going on!
If you are looking for ways to relax the body and calm the mind, Yin Yoga and Meditation are amazing practices to have with you through your pregnancy journey.
We do not recommend mat pilates during pregnancy.
