Who’s this class for?
Pregnant women in all trimesters, whether you’re a first time mama or a seasoned professional who wants to feel relaxed, connected and empowered during pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
When can I start classes?
If you’ve been doing yoga for a while, you can continue to do so when you fall pregnant making adjustments for your changing body. If you’re new to yoga, wait until you’ve had your 13 week scan and got the all clear from your GP or midwife to exercise.
What if I’m a Beginner?
Classes are for all levels- including complete beginners. I’ll encourage you throughout the class to listen to your body and if a pose doesn’t feel comfortable, I’ll suggest ways you can modify it so it feels good and gives you the most benefits.
What do I need to bring?
You’re welcome to use our beautiful eco- yoga props so just bring yourself and a water bottle.
What do I wear?
Clothes that are stretchy, comfy and make you feel good. Layering is best in case you get hot or cold. No shoes or socks are necessary.
Can I come casually of do I have to sign up to a course?
Classes are for those willing to commit to having a positive pregnancy, birth and transition to motherhood. This requires you to come to as many classes as you can over a period of time to work towards your goal and it allows me to get to know you and tailor my classes to your unique needs.
For casual visits, please email Melissa or call 0452 580 005 to check availability.
Do I need to book online or can I just show up?
Classes are limited to 5 pregnant mamas so book online to grab your spot.
Can I get a refund or do a make up class if I miss a week?
As I hold your spot for the time we’re together, I’m unable to refund you for any missed classes or transfer to the following term so unless you’re unwell or away, do your best to come along.
What if the class times don’t suit me?
If class times don’t suit you, send me an email HERE with a list of your preferred days/ times and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.
What if I don’t have anyone to look after the kids?
You’re welcome to bring school age children along and they can play quietly, do homework or read on the balcony or in my living room. For younger children, I can arrange a nanny to play with the kids. If you’d like to chat or see the space before booking in, please give me a call on 0452 580 005.
