Support your pregnancy.
Weekly Prenatal Yoga Classes at YFTH offer supportive, safe yoga practices in a friendly environment. You will have the opportunity to –
- Develop physical strength, awareness of your body and breath, and your ability to relax.
- Practice ways to use your breath to help you to be calm and to focus and direct your energy during labour and birth.
- Learn postures and practices to accommodate or ease common discomforts of pregnancy
- Develop your confidence and awareness of different aspects of birth
- Enjoy time and share knowledge and experience with other pregnant women
Especially for new mothers and pre crawling babies.
Weekly classes offer staged, appropriate restorative practices with attention given to recovery of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles as well as relieving tension in the upper back, shoulders and neck as mothers adjust to life with a newborn. Relaxation and breathing practices offer mothers ways in which to calm and connect with themselves and their babies. The classes are informal, friendly and safe spaces in which to enjoy time with other mothers of newborns and where each woman can relax and be themselves whatever their experience week to week.
Women who have clearance from their doctor or other health professional can usually begin:
- from about 6 weeks after giving birth, OR
- from 8-12 weeks following a caesarean birth depending on recovery
All yoga equipment is provided. Mothers just need to come with their baby (or babies), a blanket/cloth for your baby to lie on next to your mat and toys or comforters your baby enjoys.
If your baby needs you during class, you can feed, change or settle your baby as needed. Each mother starts, stops and joins in the class again as she can. Postnatal yoga is a very relaxed space and everyone understands the needs of babies and mothers!
NOTE: If you have any conditions relating to your birth or pregnancy eg. ongoing pelvic girdle pain, diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation) or other complications, then please discuss this with the teacher before enrolling as you may be advised to seek more specific treatments with appropriate therapists before joining a group yoga session.
Enjoy yoga in the middle of your day!
These classes are suitable for all students, whether you are new to yoga or more practiced.
Fly supported and free.
Move through traditional yoga poses and aerial adaptions all supported by the specially designed and load tested hammock.

“Kundalini Yoga consists of active and passive asana-based kriyas, pranayama, and meditations which target the whole body system to develop awareness, consciousness and spiritual strength.” – Yogi BhajanAll types of yoga are leading us down the same path; getting us out of our head and into our bodies. Connecting us to those around us, while giving us the space to realise that we have everything that we need to live a full and meaningful life. Kundalini is translated from Sanskrit meaning ‘coiled snake’. Early eastern belief was that this ‘coiled’ energy lay dormant at the base of the spine. Kundalini Yoga works on connecting us to this divine energy within us, moving it up and down the spine, working on releasing blocks where this energy can get stuck and inhibit this natural mind-body-soul connection.
A Kundalini Yoga class is quite different compared to other yoga classes that you may have been to. Each class combines asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), mudras (hand gestures), mantra (chanting), relaxation and meditation to become physically, emotionally and mentally resilient. Although each class is quite different the class structure is always the same. A class begins by ‘tuning in’ with mantra followed by a warm up set. Then a kriya (set of postures put together achieve a specific outcome) is taught. The kriyas are designed to challenge you – often with repetitive postures synced with dynamic breath-work. Following the kriya there is relaxation and usually a meditation. A Kundalini class is then always sealed with ‘The Long Time Sun’ song. Every class is different and designed to work on a specific aspect of your physically, emotionally or mentally. The majority of Kundalini Yoga classes are practiced with eyes closed, allowing students to project inward and connect with your true self, your Sat Nam.
