Pre-Natal Yoga

Our pre-natal yoga classes are specifically designed for pregnancy. Our teachers have all furthered their prenatal yoga training and importantly teach from experience – they are all mamas 🙂

You can expect a range of hatha yoga poses which will aim to build both strength and openness to carry you through your journey of pregnancy. Poses, or asanas, are also aimed at increasing flexibility in the hips and pelvis, along with a major focus on the importance of breath. The synchronisation of breath and movement is such an important preparation for child birth… and motherhood. We also encourage time to connect to the changes going on in your body and to start building a stronger connection with your bubba throughout the class.

Over 15 years ago and on the foothills of the Himalayas, Catriona experienced yoga for the first time. Her ‘Mr Miyagi’ type teacher taught classical yoga for donation only in his outdoor school. Every morning they were surrounded by monkeys, mountains and glorious eagles. Since then yoga has been a part of her daily life. Formally qualified in India in 2005 with the Saraswati yoga group Catriona has continued to study with teachers from all around the globe such as Donna Farhi, Shiva Rea, Ana Forrest, Michael De Manicur etc. She has also undertaken specialist teacher training in yoga therapy, pre-natal yoga and kids yoga. For her yoga is a sacred life practice that enables people to connect with their true nature. She believes that we are all microcosms of the macrocosm and that we are absolutely perfect in every way. When we experience this we see and appreciate the beauty in every living thing and connect to our bodies, other people and our environment on a much deeper & compassionate level.
