Workshop Teaching IYENGAR YOGA to pregnant women who are over the 1st trimester. It’s very important that you are going through a healthy pregnancy and have no history of miscarriages or c-sections. During the hour slots we will give a brief introductory chat about the benefits of practicing Iyengar Yoga during pregnancy and beyond.

Iyengar Yoga can be quite demanding and strenuous-many standing poses are practiced and held for quite a long time. The care and attention taken for each step of going into each pose, staying in it and coming out of it can be challenging for some people (even if no pregnancy is involved!!). Supports such as belts, foam bricks and chairs are used, as well as mats, but still, it’s only at the very end that some relaxation practice is offered. The hour class will be active, so for this reason it’s better for people who are reasonably fit and healthy.
