ABOUT PRENATAL YOGA
Our PreNatal Yoga Classes are a popular option for those wishing to stay fit during pregnancy while also practicing fundamental birth skills for both pain management and relaxation.
Our classes will guide you through a complete practice that will help you maintain your health and well-being during pregnancy and show you skills to develop mind focus to help with pain management during labour.
This class is fun, challenging and educational! We give 2 or 3 options for each posture so that you can work at your own level depending on your previous yoga experience, your stage of pregnancy and your energy levels on any given day.

Our prenatal yoga classes are taught by experienced prenatal yoga teacher, health professional & mum of two, Deb Young (BEd Hons: Health & Physical Education).
Deb has completed 20 weeks of study with The Australian Doula College and has worked as a Doula supporting women both at home and in hospital in a range of birth settings - Deb is advocate for choice when it comes to birth, so rest assured - no mummy wars here - we support ALL women no matter what their birth choices.
Deb's philosophy is that every woman has the ability to birth with strength and confidence, is an advocate of active birth, and supportive of a range of birth choices.

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.
