We are delighted that Timeout has listed our pregnancy yoga classes in its 10 best pregnancy yoga classes in London.
We run several pregnancy yoga classes throughout the week in conjunction with The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy offering expert teaching. At Yoga Mama, we recognise that pregnancy is a great personal journey for any woman and is a time of mental and physical change. It can also be a challenging time, as women need to make adjustments as the body starts to change shape. A pregnancy yoga practice can help address some of these changes in a positive way. Women who practice yoga during pregnancy are able to be really present in their bodies and connect with their unborn child. Yoga also has a calming effect on the mother, who, in turn, transmits this to the baby.
Women can also use breathing techniques learnt in pregnancy yoga at anytime during pregnancy. What’s more, many women find these techniques very useful when giving birth. Focusing on the breath can have a profound effect. By learning to control the breath, women may feel empowered and more in control of their thoughts and body.
