Pregnancy yoga classes suitable from 12 weeks of pregnancy. These gentle classes are designed to help ease aches and pains of pregnancy as well as to help you keep active and healthy.
Each class focuses on pranayama (breath work for labour), strength and stamina work for labour and a guided relaxation at the end. All movements and postures are pregnancy safe, and modifications will be offered for your ability and experience. No previous yoga experience is necessary.
Please bring your own yoga mat or towel to practice on. There will be a limited number of mats to borrow in class, so if you do not have your own message in advance to borrow one.
If you are looking for a regular yoga class in Dartford I recommend Perflexionist Fitness classes.
