Not sure if it’s for you? Here are a few FAQs…
• What is it?
Classes are specialised for birth, the yoga is safe for you and baby and designed to help you prepare for birth, meeting your baby and the postnatal period. We cover active birth positions, breathing techniques and what to expect during and after labour.
• When should I start coming?
I recommend coming from after your first scan and you can do right up to (and during) birth.
• Is it safe to do? I’ve never done yoga before?
Yoga is safe for pregnancy and will help your body to stay strong and you to feel in control. I am a fully trained yoga teacher and have done additional specialised training in pre and postnatal yoga, so you are in very safe hands. You don’t need any experience of yoga, it’s designed for beginners.
• How much is it?
Classes are £12 PAYG or £50 for 5 and there's no time limit on when to use them.
• How do I book?
All bookings are online www.tessaclemsonyoga.co.uk/classes

You can join online via Zoom or in the studio.
