I am pregnant, can I come to the yoga classes?
Congratulations! Yes, you can come to the classes. I am a qualified Prenatal Yoga Teacher. It is best to come after the first trimester and you have the “go ahead” from your doctor.

Modifications are made specifically for you, so you are safe and still taking part in the class.
