These classes are a space for pregnant women to be themselves wherever they are at in their pregnancy journey. To experience some nourishment in the busy-ness of their lives (while miraculously growing another human being!), to ask questions, to share, grow, learn and connect with other mammas to be in an approachable, non-judgmental, confidential space.
The focus of the classes is guided by the interest of the mammas attending and includes:
Deep nourishing relaxations
Practices for mums to connect with their babies
Hypnobirthing techniques (for pregnancy and birth)
Baby positioning for a more comfortable pregnancy and birth (inspired by Spinning Babies)
Sessions on the natural processes of birth and practical birth preparation
Gentle dance movements
No experience of yoga is required and all equipment is provided, along with an abundance of practical handouts, recordings and mini library of pregnancy books to borrow.
In addition to my 500 hour plus training as a yoga teacher and being a mother to 2 exquisite, happy, cheeky little ones, I have specific training to support women through pregnancy, birth and afterwards. I initially attended yoga training for pregnancy and birth and then completed 2 levels of teacher training in Embody Birth (previously known as Belly Dance for Birth), with Maha al Musa, while pregnant with my first child.
Between children I spent a year researching and delivering workshops to support women’s hormonal balance through menstruation, preconception, pregnancy and menopause. Then while pregnant with my second child, through Spinning Babies, I learnt more about the natural physiological processes of birth, what helps and hinders its flow and how to encourage babies into the most optimal position for pregnancy and birth.
Supporting women and particularly mothers is definitely my passion! I absolutely love these classes and feel very honoured and humbled to share a small part of women’s journeys into motherhood.
"I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to attend prenatal yoga classes with Becks. Becks is so passionate and knowledgeable about the miraculous process of pregnancy and the journey of preparing for motherhood, and her enthusiasm and awe for this process is contagious.
I always left her classes feeling inspired, informed and supported.
Becks always put so much effort into preparing these classes, which were tailored to the women attending, intimate and relaxed. In each class, we did yoga asana, tailored specifically for pregnancy, combined with a range of other activities such as meditations, breathwork, dance, hypnobirth techniques, art, discussion and more. Every week I learnt something different!
Attending Becks' classes was like stepping into a little sanctuary of time each week where I felt truly nourished and supported to tune in to my self, my baby and the amazing journey that was unfolding within me. Thank you Becks!!"
