PREGNANCY YOGA AND MASSAGE
PregnancyBliss Stretch and Relax (Pregnancy Yoga). Having a baby is such a special time and pregnancy is when we should be celebrating the amazing process of growing a new life and little person inside of us. But often, because of the busyness and stressfulness of life, it can be a time of anxiety with little time to focus on looking after ourselves. Using a combination of yoga-inspired postures, breathing, relaxation and mindfulness techniques along with massage and equipment such as yoga balls, our PregnancyBliss pregnancy yoga classes are designed to foster that magical connection with the baby as well as strengthening the body, relaxing the mind for birth and alleviating some of the discomforts of pregnancy.
