Pippa’s Pregnancy Yoga, Wednesdays, 6 – 7.10 pm, Drama Studio, Emmeline Blackburn Arts Centre (Walthamstow Hall Senior School) Bayham Road, Sevenoaks, Kent TN13 3XA
I’m a qualified antenatal teacher (Advanced NCT Teacher) as well as yoga teacher so combine my knowledge of both to link theory with practice. We do lots of yoga postures and moves to support the changing needs of the body during pregnancy – to relieve backache, improve posture, increase energy and release tension. We also focus on breathing awareness, relaxation and visualisations for birth – whatever birth you’re planning (water birth to caesarean). I weave in some theory so you can understand what you’re doing, why and how to use the techniques when the time comes. We also have a FB group for keeping in touch, networking, sharing thoughts, baby announcements and arranging meet ups. The class is friendly and small (max 6) with plenty of guidance, support and assistance. I try to personalise the classes to the needs of the group, so the focus varies week to week.
