PREGNANCY & post natal mums
Exercise is not contraindicated in pregnancy provided that you are fit and well, and you have a low-risk pregnancy.
We advise that if you are pregnant and are already a regular member and have good fitness levels, then you must at first stop classes until you have had your initial scans and appointments. Find out from you doctor or midwife if it safe for you as an individual to continue with our classes, and please get this in writing. Once the go-ahead has been given, you may return to classes until a stage in your pregnancy that your doctor advises. We will show you lower-impact alternatives, but exercise in low-risk pregnancy is beneficial to both mother and baby.
If you are pregnant and have not attended classes before, then we advise that you do NOT start a new fitness regime during pregnancy if you are not already fit and active. Put your feet up until after the baby is born!
All mums must not resume classes until at the very least 6 weeks after delivery, or longer if you had a caesarian section or if your doctor/midwife advises. We will not accept anyone in our classes who has given birth in less than 6 weeks prior.
For more information about exercising at our studio during and after pregnancy, please see our guide
If you would prefer a targeted class specifically for pregnancy, rather than joining in with our general classes, then we offer Antenatal Aerial Yoga
CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE AS A PRIVATE CLASS. Once you have completed an antenatal aerial yoga class, you may be able to book into certain mainstream Aerial Yoga classes and complete a separate class plan to suit your pregnancy.
A unique method utilising aerial hammock, birthing ball, and Yoga principles for a complete antenatal exercise program. Yoga postures are modified to adapt to the changing needs of your pregnancy, catering for each trimester. The hammocks and birthing balls support body weight, allowing for mobility exercises, core stability exercises, gentle muscle toning, stretching, and complete relaxation.
This programme is designed to be taught to all levels whether you are new to exercise or a fitness enthusiast. Designed to alleviate pelvic girdle pain and address symptoms of pelvic mis-alignment, weakened wrists, swollen legs and tight neck, shoulders and lower back.
