Pregnancy Yoga Classes Toowoomba

Bellies & Bubs Prenatal yoga classes are ideal for beginners through to more advanced students

What is Pregnancy Yoga?

Yoga is both safe and beneficial during the 2nd and 3rd Trimesters of Pregnancy.

As the meaning of Yoga (Union, Yoke) suggests, it is the unity of body, mind and spirit. In pregnancy, this 'joining' or union', the intertwining of mother and baby and the intricate bond and connection that lasts a lifetime; is never more apparent.

Bellies & Bubs Pregnancy Yoga classes are ideal for beginners through to more advanced students and recommended in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters (from 12 weeks). All postures (asana) are adapted to support the varying stages of pregnancy and the ongoing hormonal, structural and emotional changes, as your baby develops and grows.
