Pregnancy is a beautiful time but also brings a lot of changes to a woman’s life.

It is important for every mum-to-be to make time for herself and prepare not just for labour but also for the changes that a new baby brings.

 

The pregnancy classes with Lucy are suitable from 14 weeks onwards and gently helps to strengthen the body and release aches and pains whilst assuring that everyone is safe and comfortable at all times.

 

Over the six-weeks of this pregnancy yoga course, you will learn to move mindfully, quieten the mind, connect with your breath and your baby. As well as learning the power of the breath, you will work on both short sequences and holding poses to release and stabilise where it is most needed, while your body adjusts for the growing baby. This weekly yoga practice will serve you well to stay strong and flexible, reduce tension physically and mentally during your pregnancy, labour and beyond.

YOGA STYLES

YOGA

The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘union’, or ‘to link together’. Yoga is based on the belief that the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind, thus Yoga has a positive effect on all the elements of our being. It stresses the importance of containing the activity, the mental ‘chit chat’ of the mind, and learning to focus and direct the mind. This creates practices which go beyond the physical aspect.

 

Yoga and yoga therapy can be helpful for:

 

Stress and Anxiety  -  Back Problems  -  High Blood Pressure  -  Insomnia

Joint Pain  -  Headaches and migraines  -  Digestive Problems and I.B.S

Menstrual Problems  -  Depression and other emotional issues  -  Lack of energy

 

Please check with the centre and the teacher of your chosen class, if you suffer from any above symptoms, and would like to attend.

These hatha-based Vajrasati yoga classes are suitable for all levels from complete beginners to seasoned yoga practitioners. The class incorporates classical yoga postures and variations on classical asanas (postures). The asanas are taught with a strong emphasis on breath and energy awareness, resulting in deep relaxation, calmer mind, healthier body and the cultivation of a deeper connection with ourselves and the world.

 

The class ranges from restorative to more dynamic postures (depending on Khadine's mood and the mood of the class!) and props are used to make postures available to all no matter what movement is possible within the body and props are also used for more restorative supported restful practices. Generally postures are taught individually but some flow work is occasionally incorporated into the class.

All our classes are suitable for beginners. Those completely new to yoga would be welcome to try any class that suits them. None of our classes are held for beginner's only. This gives the opportunity to learn yoga in a mixed-level environment, with classes small enough for each individual to receive suitable attention.

An award winning class, Belly Buster Fitness is a Postnatal Fitness and Rehabilitation class for mums. Babies & pushchairs are welcome. The class works around you and your baby, so it changes every week; it is spontaneous and fun while getting a great workout. It combines core stability, strength training, and Pilates. The aim is to rehabilitate you after pregnancy for general wellbeing alongside any specific issues including  Diastasis Recti, back problems, pelvic floor strentgh and control, as well as posture.

 

In this class you will slowly regain your strength and tone your muscles so you can manage your child's physical development. We will work on your pelvic floor and build your core stability so as to improve your posture to help with back and shoulder pain as well as tone the tummy muscles so as to heal Diastasis Recti. These sessions can also provide a great opportunity to bond and develop with your baby. For new Mums, it’s a class not to be missed!

 

Suitable for post-C.Section, babies & pushchairs welcome!

Postnatal Recovery Class

Vanda Scaravelli was a long-term student of Iyengar and later Desikachar. Her work is based on an approach of learning how to listen to your body - going with it and not against it, avoiding all effort or strain and centering the attention on the movement and opening of the spine. She believed that yoga was not a form of body control but rather a way of bringing freedom to the body and mind.

 

"It is not so much the performance of the exercises that matters but rather the way we are doing them. We have three friends - gravity, breath and movement of the spine. These three companions should be constantly with us".

Vajrasati Yoga

Viniyoga is an approach to Hatha yoga focusing on linking breath and movement, working on strengthening and stretching the body, while considering individual needs. In this style of yoga the function of a posture is more important than the form, allowing for modifications and variations to be made. The breath is most important throughout the practice, creating a focus point for the mind. In this way mindfulness and concentration can be built. Posture practice (asana) is only one part of yoga and during each Viniyoga class there is also time set-aside for relaxation, breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation.

The aim of this course is to help incorporate mindfulness into yoga practice. Whilst all yoga should be mindful, this course uses more of the formal teachings of mindfulness than a regular yoga class and incorporates the insights of yoga to support a formal and/or informal mindfulness practice.  

 

Each hour and a half session includes approximately 1 hour of asana (yoga posture practice) with half an hour of formal mindfulness practices (meditation, body scanning, discussion etc).  The sessions are planned to enable you to take away some of the practices (handouts and material references will be provided where necessary) to bring mindfulness to your everyday life.  It is suitable for anyone either as a first introduction to mindfulness, a refresher or support to an already existing practice.  For anyone wanting to delve really deep into the practice of mindfulness in particular then it is recommended that you attend a mindfulness course (before, after or along side this course).  This course runs in blocks of 6-8 weeks.
