You will be encouraged to practice gentle appropriate mobility throughout whilst connecting with your changing body, bringing relief from some of the common conditions of pregnancy such as backache, pelvic pain, and insomnia. At the end of each class you will be guided through a beautiful relaxation (with the option of a meditation) this is an opportunity for you to switch off from everything in a safe and calm environment.
