CONNECTION AND COMMUNITY
Pregnancy during our current situation asks mums-to-be to show extra courage as birth plans change and there is uncertainty about what the coming months could bring. But despite the rigours of social distancing, your pregnancy continues to be a special time to connect with your baby. Being at home gives you the opportunity to focus both on your needs and on your baby as you prepare your nest. We have developed this retreat to give you the chance to move, breathe and bond with your baby. We know that your regular support groups and networks may not be able to meet in the same way and so we are offering four live meditations and yoga nidra to give you the opportunity to connect with other expectant members of our community. You will also be able to ask our teachers questions about how you might modify your practice during pregnancy. Please take medical advice before you undertake a new exercise routine and particularly whilst pregnant.

Pregnancy Restorative Yoga with Nidra

A really relaxing yoga class of gentle movements followed by yoga nidra. This class doesn't need a yoga mat and can be done in limited space or even in bed. Start with seated joint mobility, restorative forward folds and hip openers, all preparing your mind and body for total relaxation through the practice of yoga nidra. A great practice for when you are feeling tired, in need of a 'yogic power nap' or to prepare you for bedtime. Options for using bolsters to support are used, but you can use pillows or cushions as well. This is a pregnancy yoga class, specially created for mums-to-be to be able to find time to relax, but you may also want to try this is you're not pregnant for deep relaxation.

Second Trimester Vinyasa Flow

Whilst there is a flow, you're given more time to really connect to your baby and the changes that are taking place within your body, as well as some useful tools for pregnancy and labour.
