Testimonials from Students
“Renate’s yoga for pregnancy sessions are the highlight of my week; an oasis of calm with an opportunity to have a gentle but thorough all over body workout appropriate for pregnancy. Having suffered with hip pain, Renate was able to ease aches that my physiotherapist could not! I’ve met lots of lovely ladies who I’m still in touch with and highly recommend this superb class.”
Friendly class, good for beginners and if you’ve done yoga before. Nice way to meet other mums to be too – would recommend!”
Practicing yoga throughout my pregnancy has kept many aches and pains at bay – Renate is happy to focus the class depending on specific issues anyone is having on the day, which is so helpful.
I always leave the class, feeling super relaxed and confident about the birth of my baby!”
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I start antenatal yoga?
12 – 14 weeks pregnant is an ideal time to start classes, but starting later is better than not starting at all. The class covers Yoga exercises, breathing and relaxation.
What should I wear to the yoga class?
It is best to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes for the baby and yourself – nothing that restricts your movement or your breathing.
Yoga is practiced in bare feet.
You might like to bring socks and jumper/cardigan for extra warmth during the relaxation.
Do I need to have my own yoga mat?
If you have your own mat and you’d prefer to use it then you are welcome to do so. Proper yoga mats are much better than the general aerobic type that are liable to slip.
Mats are available to borrow and to buy at class.
For the relaxation you might find a small pillow useful.
Should I eat before coming to class?
Wherever possible please try not to eat a large meal for a few hours before you come to class – it is not terribly comfortable to have a full stomach while practicing.
Please bring water if you need it.
Do I need any previous yoga experience?
Yoga is not competitive!
It does not matter if you haven’t practiced before – everybody has his or her individual strengths and weaknesses to work with.
You will notice how your strength and flexibility increases after just a few sessions.
It is very important to listen to your body to only do what you feel you are capable of, and make sure to rest if you feel you need to.
Arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts
