Yoga for Pregnancy

The discipline of a yoga practice opens the possibility for transforming your pregnancy journey. Yoga supports the physical aspects of good body alignment and avoidance of back strain, particularly around the lower back, through gentle yoga postures. Also yoga’s underlying philosophy of “union” provides a framework of understanding, to enable you to adapt with grace and acceptance, to deep levels of emotional and energetic change that accompany pregnancy.

You are encouraged to start attending anytime from 16 weeks of pregnancy until your baby's birth.

All levels and abilities are welcomed.The cost is £12 per session, please see below for days and time and how to book.



These popular classes are taught by Rhian Roberts, Nicola Gibbons and Licia Catinelli. Rhian Roberts teaches general, pregnancy and postnatal yoga to mothers and babies, and her qualifications are accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga. She has always practiced yoga, and her passion involves teaching yoga to pregnant women, as she feels pregnant women are “hardwired” to absorb the teachings that yoga has to offer.

Licia Catinelli teaches general hatha, mindfulness-based and pregnancy yoga to mothers and members of staff at Kingston Hospital, and her qualifications are accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga. She has been practicing yoga for the last 14 years and teaching for over 10 years. She has completed a post graduate degree in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programme and other Applications at the University of Exeter. She is passionate about the empowerment of women during pregnancy to cultivate wellbeing and to prepare body, mind and heart for the arrival of their babies.
