Pregnancy Classes in York including Yoga for Pregnancy, Pilates, Aqua-natal and lots more

“I would never have thought that a yoga class could be so welcoming, friendly and helpful – and the fact it’s been virtual during such a difficult year is totally amazing.” 

Hi, I’m Alison, I’ve been teaching Pregnancy Yoga for 14 years.  Creating connection and community is really important to me and I’m here to support you every step of the way. Yoga helps you enjoy a healthy pregnancy, easing aches and pains and feeling great in your body, with time and space to reflect and prepare. You might be planning a hospital birth, home birth, maximum pain relief, minimal intervention – all are welcome here.   I also offer lovely nourishing post-natal yoga for you and your little one, to support you through your first year.

We can adapt all the practices to suit individual needs, or come and sit, lay down, breathe and be in the company of other mums and mums to be. Everyone is welcome to take what they need.

Why not book a £5 trial week – a Sunday and Wednesday, consecutive classes, via zoom.

We are proud to specialise in Women’s fitness and wellbeing.

We offer female training programmes to build a strong foundation through a restorative yoga style approach. We help women struggling with leaks, bladder weakness, menopausal changes, abdominal separation and weak tummy muscles, supporting your understanding that you don’t just have to buy pads when there are exercise programmes available. Reconnecting with your feminine power to create a stronger core and pelvic floor can reduce back pain, improve posture and sensation! Start off by signing up for our free 12 day online course to restore your core or book in a consultation call with me.

Reiki Energy Healing can balance and assist the flow of energy through your body to promote physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. You can take advantage of our mini 30 minute appointment if you have never experienced the relaxing warmth of Reiki.

With Chakra Healing and balancing we work specifically with one Chakra, locating and clearing any blockages in this energy flow. Rebalancing your Chakras can help you feel more spiritual, grounded and aligned with your soul purpose. Take your first step to learn more about yourself through a consultation call where we will learn how you feel and how we can best help uncover the root causes that might be causing these blocks, then create your bespoke healing programme.

Spiritual Astrology can help you understand the layers of your personality and can increase self-awareness in where you feel challenged or where your lucky areas are. How the moon might influence you on a monthly basis and which areas of your life it might be influencing at any time. Discovering more about yourself and how others see you and it all starts with finding out your Rising Sign for free with us.

Experience the perfect balance of relaxation, laughter and exercise – a wonderful way to unwind and stay healthy during your pregnancy.

Our classes are expertly designed to take a holistic approach to an expectant mums’ physical and mental well-being, combining relaxation with cardiovascular exercises to help prepare the body for birth.

Our teachers pass antenatal swimming training that is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives Trust, our own extensive aquanatal training and STA Aquacise/Aquanatal and Antenatal Swimming. This means that you are in the safest possible hands as you work out and relax.

Classes take place in the soothing, comforts of pools, providing one of the safest ways to exercise in pregnancy. The water supports your joints whilst also providing resistance work for all the muscles, strengthening your back and abdominal muscles ready for carrying your baby around!

There’s a science behind it too! Exercise and relaxation release your body’s natural happy hormones, endorphins, which suppress pain and help you (and baby) feel calm – not only helpful in later pregnancy, but also really important during and after birth.

Classes are booked in 6 week blocks and take place at the Roko Health Club on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.

Pilates is a simple, effective form of exercise for any stage of life, including during your pregnancy.  Our classes aim to keep you moving throughout your pregnancy and help you to feel strong and capable ahead of giving birth.  You will:
– Learn to use your breathing to your advantage– Learn to appreciate your own strength and resilience– Strengthen your pelvic floor (without doing loads of boring kegels!)–  Improve your posture and avoid back pain– Ease some of the common discomforts of pregnancy (e.g. calf cramps, restless legs)– Move your body in a safe and beneficial way
Our prenatal classes take place on Thursdays at 7pm in our beautiful city centre studio – just opposite York Dungeons
Our postnatal classes are designed with you and your body in mind, and of course your baby is very welcome too.  We often find that the babies enjoy spending time on the mat with you, and perhaps allow you to do some exercise whilst you’re there!  The classes provide a gentle re-introduction to exercise, targeting the muscles that often suffer most when feeding and carrying babies, and helping you to rebuild core strength.
Our post-natal classes take place on Fridays at 10:30am at Clements Hall
