Mama Blossom Aquanatal Yoga is a perfect way to do some gentle exercise in pregnancy whilst relaxing, bonding with bump, meeting other mums and taking time out for you.
Aquanatal Classes are the perfect combination in pregnancy as they offer adaptions of classic yoga practices in the water to give benefits of stretching, relaxation, breathing techniques, buoyancy to aid movement and water resistance. Classes are suitable from 14 weeks of pregnancy and you need no previous yoga experience to attend.
As swimming is the best form of exercise available to pregnant women you will learn the correct adaptions of classic swimming strokes to accommodate the growing baby, support the pelvis and changes in the body.
And for baby remember, deep breathing nurtures you, slows the pulse and lowers your blood pressure. The release of endorphins causes a feeling of calmness and well-being. The relaxation you experience passes directly to your baby and benefits them with increased blood flow to the placenta and the sharing of bonding time in pregnancy.
