I am now taking bookings for new courses starting on Saturday 19th and Monday 21st August 2017. It is however possible to start any time after that.
Please note there will be a slightly restricted timetable during August as I am on holiday for 2 weeks. There are no classes on Saturday 5th and 12th and Monday 7th and 14th August. All other classes are running as normal.
Each block course runs for 7 weeks/classes (£91) and you can start any time with me, given I currently have space (please send me an email to find out). You can then come to the Saturday morning or Monday evening class or both until your 7 week/class block is full (please use within 8 weeks).
Pregnancy is a magical intuitive time in a woman’s life celebrating the new life growing inside her. Yoga makes you feel more energised, stronger, more relaxed and more comfortable in your own body. Regular practice tones and strengthens your pregnant body. It allows you to connect with your baby and your own inner wisdom on a deeper level.
I am a mum of 2 and have been teaching pregnant ladies for over 15 years now. I feel blessed to see whole families grow and witness my beautiful mums go through their first, second and sometimes third pregnancies.
The Pregnancy Yoga Kingston classes are suitable from 13-14 weeks of your pregnancy right up to your due date and sometimes even beyond if you are comfortable. It does not matter whether you have practised yoga before or not.
This most precious time in a woman’s life brings tremendous change, both physically and emotionally. Pre-natal yoga aims to empower and prepare mums-to-be to feel calm, strong and in control, mentally and physically. Yoga helps keeping their bodies toned and supple without strain whilst preparing for the birth of their baby and motherhood. Common discomforts that occur during pregnancy can be alleviated. Lower back pain, pelvic pain, heartburn, indigestion, swollen joints, breathlessness, tiredness and sleep disturbances are just a few of those discomforts that can occur. Yoga provides women with much needed rest and increases energy and vitality. It enhances overall well-being and allows for time to connect with their baby and their own inner wisdom.
Places in my classes are popular and limited. Please contact me to book and secure your place. If you have any questions or concerns whether this class is right for you, please contact me as well. Payment is required before the start of the course to guarantee your place. Details of where to send payment to will be send to you once you have booked.

Midwife Louise Nuns says:
I encourage all pregnant women to attend yoga classes. Yoga benefits pregnant women in many ways. It is a great way to relieve stress and cope with the emotional, hormonal, and bodily changes a pregnant woman experiences. Yoga improves posture, which helps a pregnant woman avoid backaches and fatigue. It strengthens abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor, making carrying the weight of a developing baby easier. Many women say that regular yoga practice during pregnancy eases delivery and reduces the need for drugs during delivery. Importantly, many of the breathing techniques that I teach for coping with the pain and stress of childbirth are similar to those taught in yoga. Pregnant mums who do yoga exercises seem healthier, both in mind and body. Their bodies are more flexible, which enables them to adapt to various positions when in labour. The ligaments are more elastic, which in turn can help to reduce labour pain. In addition, women who practice yoga during pregnancy can find it easier to recover and regain their fitness after delivery.
Many of our clients have attended Muriel’s Pregnancy Yoga Kingston classes and have found them to be extremely beneficial as well as really enjoying them.

Mats, bolsters and blocks are provided.
If your baby arrives early or if there are complications in your pregnancy which require rest, you will receive a partial refund of your investment. Unused Pregnancy Yoga Kingston classes can be used towards a Mum and Baby Yoga course. I will work out your individual course price for you.
I recommend coming to the mum and baby yoga sessions once baby is about 6 weeks or older. It holds many benefits for both. Babies whose mums came to pregnancy yoga usually recognise my voice and my OMs. It tends to calm and relax them and others too.
It is often possible to join current courses after the start date. In that case, your investment will be adjusted. Please enquire about availability.
