Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga aims to enhance women’s comfort during pregnancy and labour and to reduce the need for medical intervention in childbirth with carefully selected and tested adaptations of yoga.

Birthlight Yoga, inspired by Amazonian rainforest midwives and women, has been developed in collaboration with midwives over 20 years.  It values the physical and emotional nurturing of pregnant women so that they can approach labour and birth with calm confidence.

I have had the pleasure of participating in pregnancy yoga which was fantastic. I had never tried any form of yoga before. A very relaxed environment where you can get your stretch on and share in the experience of pregnancy.

COVID-19

Our face to face yoga classes are currently suspended, but we hope to resume them soon - watch this space!

What do you get in our online Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga course?

We have created a full and comprehensive Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga course, offering the same quality and content you can expect from our face to face classes.

The course includes:

- introduction and safe practice instruction

- 4 x breathing practices

- an introduction to affirmations

- pelvic floor exercises

- 4 x relaxations 

- 6 x full classes, including 1 birth ball class

- using yoga in labour & birth class

- 3 x mini classes

- 1 x sun salutation

- additional resources section

Joining the group also gives you access to our expertise.  We will regularly check the group to answer any questions posted.  There is also the opportunity to chat and have discussionswithin the group with other members if

you wish.

You can remain in the group until after your baby is born.  Following this, you may be interested in joining our online baby massage course - click here for details

The videos are home-made so don't expect top-notch video recording or high resolution quality and please forgive the occasional bin lorry and barking dog!  We are confodent that the content will make up for the organic feel!

COST We are asking for a donation of £20.00 (or whatever you can afford/wish to pay) which will go towards funding some of our postnatal wellbeing services.  This can be made into our account if you are booking another course with us, or directly into our JustGiving Appeal.
