From September 2014 we will be running classes in PREGNANCY YOGA IN ENGLISH at St. Sophia Hospital.
Responding to the growing interest in prenatal yoga for non-Polish speaking mums-to-be, we are adding an additional Prenatal Class, which will be held every WEDNESDAY 13.15 – 14.30.
Each Pregnancy Yoga Session is designed to serve the specific needs of pregnancy and labour. It prepares women for birth (physically, emotionally and mentally) as well as providing a valuable quiet space to form a bond with your unborn child. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet other mums-to-be and share thoughts, feelings and emotions. Each session has calm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Small number of participants - allows the teacher to concentrate on the individual future mothers needs and requirements.
The class is suitable for any pregnant woman from 15 weeks onward who does not suffer from any serious medical problem(s).
An individual session last 75 minutes and includes: PHYSICAL EXERCISE, BREATHING & RELAXING TECHNIQUES.
Previous Yoga experience is not necessary
