Frequently Asked Questions
Is Yoga ok during pregnancy?
Yoga is great during pregnancy, even if you’ve never done it before. In fact, some women do their first ever yoga class while they are pregnant. It’s best not to start classes until you’ve entered your second trimester. A good amount of health information is collected before your first class and we'll work together with you regarding any modifications that may be required.
When can I start doing prenatal yoga classes?
It’s best to wait until the beginning of your second trimester to start Prenatal Yoga Classes as medical advice is often not to take up anything new in the first trimester. If you want to start later on in your third trimester, that’s okay too, It’s never too late! Once they start, many women choose to do back to back classes until their baby arrives so 40+ weeks, sometimes going past their expected due date. If you’re feeling good and your Midwife or Obstetrician doesn’t tell you otherwise, there’s no reason to stop.
can i do this class if i have never done yoga before?
Absolutely! This class is gentle and full of modifications so it’s suitable for complete beginners. It’s also great for women who are experiencing some pregnancy induced changes in their body and want to be under the guidance of a yoga teacher who is highly experienced in teaching pregnant women and who has been pregnant herself multiple times.
do experienced yogis join this course too?
They sure do! If you’re a long time Yogi, you will pick up a lot of tips and tricks in this course that you can either use to adapt your home practice or take into your regular class to keep you and bubs safe during your pregnancy. You won’t just learn Prenatal Yoga modification but you’ll also learn why we do them.
What should I bring to a yoga class?
Yoga Mats and equipment are provided. If you like, you can use a specialised non-slip yoga towel over the top of your mat although it's not necessary.
Bring a drink of water and if you’re pregnant with low blood sugar you’re welcome to bring a light snack.

Is there any class etiquette I should know about?
