PRENATAL FAQS

WHEN IS IS SAFE TO JOIN?

Pregnancy is such an individual thing that this can vary woman to woman.
If you are already exercising or have been practicing yoga you may wish to start immediately. Some women (particularly those in a high risk category) may prefer to wait until 12 weeks when energy levels return, ‘morning sickness’ tends to subside, and the risk for miscarriage is much lower.

 

I'VE NEVER DONE YOGA - IS THIS CLASS SUITABLE FOR ME?

Yes. We give easy, moderate and challenging variations for each posture so you can work at your own level depending on your experience.

 

I CAN'T ATTEND TUESDAYS OR SATURDAYS - CAN I JOIN YOUR OTHER CLASSES?

Yes! Most of our regular classes are also suitable to attend during pregnancy, although we recommend all students who are pregnant and attending a regular class give us a call so we can give you a few tips on how to get started safely.

For more information, text Deb on 0448 204 574 and she will be happy to give you a call to discuss your questions.
