When Can I Start? 

Congratulations on your pregnancy. Prenatal Yoga is a great and safe way of exercising during your pregnancy, to keep you limber, strong, flexible and to physically and mentally prepare you for childbirth and motherhood.


You may start your Prenatal Yoga practice anytime after your First Trimester (13 weeks), and no previous yoga experience is necessary. 

If you are in your first trimester and wish to start the practice, we recommend that you check with your doctor first, before coming to class.

What to Expect?

Prenatal Yoga is a practice built for You and your Baby (or Babies!). Our classes are set in a small, intimate setting, and yoga props like bolsters, blocks and straps are commonly used to facilitate the practice and make the poses attainable, without strain.


A typical Prenatal Yoga class entails light meditation, breath work, gentle stretching, standing and seated poses (with modifications and props), and relaxation. You will notice a difference in the practice format from each trimester, as our instructors modify the practice according to your pregnancy and physical condition. Prenatal Yoga is safe to be practised right up to the time of delivery.


If you do not have a yoga mat, you may use one of ours, or purchase one from us. Just come in comfortable clothing that you can stretch in, and bring along a smile, an open heart and mind. After all, you’re going to be a MOM!!
