NCT Yoga Classes


The NCT yoga classes focus on gentle yoga postures, breathing techniques, positions for labour with practice contractions, guided relaxation and social time. Mothers that have previously attended and recently had their babies are encouraged to return to chat about their experiences. 

The aim is for you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time, whilst improving your physical and emotional wellbeing and helping you feel more confident, calm and positive about your upcoming birth. 

The postures are very gentle, specifically designed so you can attend throughout your pregnancy (after 12 weeks) and can be adapted to individual needs. The classes are suitable for all women, regardless of their fitness level. No previous experience of yoga is necessary.


Benefits of these classes include:

  • Reduced backache

  • Improved quality of sleep

  • Reduced anxiety

  • Strengthened joints and muscles

  • Increased flexibility

  • Increased blood circulation

  • Reduced swelling from fluid retention

  • Improved posture and body awareness

  • Strengthened abdominal and pelvic muscles

  • Improved digestive system

NCT Yoga for Pregnancy classes are taught by NCT practitioners who have undergone extra training in teaching physical skills - a further year's training into the practice and philosophy of yoga enables the teacher to graduate to NCT Yoga for Pregnancy. The teachers are passionate about supporting women to have a positive experience of pregnancy and birth.

For those who are already mothers, the class will be a time when you can relax, concentrate on the new baby and think about your wishes for this birth.

For 1st time mothers, there will be lots of practical tips, an excellent opportunity to meet other pregnant women, ask questions, find your tribe.
