We cannot wait to see you soon to help you through this current lockdown isolation. Remember – you are NOT alone.

 

ZenMuma Pregnancy Yoga classes are for all levels of yogic ability, from beginners to those with varying levels of experience. But most importantly they are gentle and safe for all pregnant women, from 14 weeks until birth.

We practice traditional yogic areas of Pranayama (breathing exercises for life and birth), Asanas (postures), Shavasana and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation techniques), but in a way that is accessible, ‘non-scary’, easy to follow, authentic, and safe for you and your changing body and growing baby.

Benefits of ZenMuma Pregnancy Yoga Classes:

Body pregnancy yoga class norwich

  • Stretching exercises promote the circulation of blood, and therefore nutrients and oxygen, around the body. Improving the bodies systems and keeping you and baby healthier.
  • Yoga helps to strengthen the stabilising muscles around the pelvis. It also works with pregnancy posture, alleviating pelvic and back pain during pregnancy.
  • ZenMuma will show you movements and techniques to alleviate issues such as cramps, restless legs, oedema, carpal tunnel, breathlessness and rib ache.

Mind

  • A place of warmth and friendliness to take time to indulge in some ‘you and your baby bump’ time. A place to connect and celebrate the fact that you are pregnant!
  • A space to offload the physical and emotional ups and downs of a changing chapter in your life, knowing that everyone around you is on the same page.
  • A class of learning and knowledge. Between us, we will have a lot of knowledge about pregnancy and birth – and how to help ourselves and each other.
  • A time for calm. Away from the chaos of work, shops, traffic, cooking, relationships and red-wine drinking pals! An oasis of calm, breathing techniques and deep comfortable relaxation.

And… Birth

  • Yoga strengthens the muscles needed when having a baby, particularly when in active labour, thereby supporting a good birth. We share effective active birth movements and ways of helping you, help your body, during labour.
  • Pregnancy yoga will show you ways of using birthing props like birthing balls, to make your birthing easier and more effective.
  • The Pranayama, or breathing exercises, like ‘surge breathing, feather breathing and golden thread’ breathing, will all become invaluable in helping you have a calm and easier birth.
  • Practical advice, knowledge of ‘what to expect’ and ‘what to do to help yourself,’ mean you walk into birth feeling more confident. 
  • Acceptance. When things ‘take a turn’ during birth, as sometimes unavoidably they do, this class will help you with the acceptance of knowing you did all you could. If intervention is needed, you can still support birth using breathing techniques to stay calm, stay focused, and stay happy that you and your baby are safe and healthy, which is ALL that matters.
