Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy yoga is one of the best ways to exercise during pregnancy. A gentle, safe way of keeping toned and supple without strain.

We recommend beginning classes following the 14th week of your pregnancy and continuing throughout, once or twice a week, ideally in order to gain maximum benefit.

Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnant mums connecting with their baby

A minimum of 6 classes enables you to acquire a basic understanding of the main techniques. The benefits of yoga increases in proportion to the woman’s familiarity with the techniques taught, and familiarity comes through repetition and variation on a core range of practices.

Benefits of pregnancy yoga:

  • Helps keep the body supple without strain
  • Helps boost energy
  • Can relieve minor aches and pains (e.g. swollen joints, constipation & heartburn)
  • Can relieve stress and anxiety
  • Helps relaxation and restful sleep
  • Improves posture thus improving lower back pain
  • Strengthens pelvic floor muscles
  • Promotes better connection with your baby through breathing exercises
  • Can be used to relieve pain in labour and childbirth

Satya Yoga was established in London in 2003 by Zena Kidd-May, who taught yoga to private individuals at her London studio for several years.

In this hectic life we all lead, it is easy to live entirely in our heads, but attending Zena's classes over the last couple of years has enabled me to reconnect mind and body. Zena beautifully demonstrates how to move through the poses, whilst keeping an expert eye on us, to maximise what her students receive in each pose. I feel as strong and fit and as connected with my body and its possibilities as I have ever done in my life, and have always felt in such capable and knowledgable hands at Satya Yoga. The guided relaxation at the end of each class is wonderfully restorative, as are Zena's homemade nutritional treats, allowing us to leave class feeling thoroughly nurtured both inside and out! I enjoy Zena's classes so much I have gone from attending one to two a week.
