Pregnancy is such a special time in your life when you need to nurture both the body and soul. As your baby develops in the womb it is important that you create time and space to integrate the process of change which is taking place. Yoga can help you do this by bringing your mind and awareness into your body and helping to bring harmony and balance. This can be especially important if you have a busy or stressful life. Pregnancy Yoga will leave you feeling relaxed and focused and with more energy. It can also ease and relieve some common complaints associated with pregnancy.

During the classes we cover classic yoga postures focusing particularly on opening postures for easier movement during pregnancy and labour. The postures are complemented with breathing techniques that you can use during your pregnancy and labour.

Each class ends with some deep relaxation. Yoga postures which can be used during Labour are also demonstrated.

Pregnancy Yoga Classes are suitable for all women during pregnancy from about 15 weeks onwards. No yoga experience is necessary. If you are attending a doctor, physio etc. check with them before coming along.

Classes are adapted fully to the needs of pregnant women.
Classes are in Shankill and Ranelagh.


After the birth of your child you may want to get back into practicing yoga. Post Natal Yoga classes are adapted for women who have given birth recently and the focus is on using postures, which protect the back during this delicate time. The classes cover many gentle postures which are adaptable to your changing body, and can help you ease back into shape.

The best thing about this class is you bring your baby along and integrate them into your practice. Classes are suitable 6-8 weeks after the birth of your child. Check with your doctor before attending the class.


Classes are designed for children aged three to seven years old. The children are led through creative stories and exciting adventures that stimulate their imagination. Whilst enjoying a variety of safe postures, the children sing songs, play games and work together.

The stories involve a wonderful combination of stretches, back arches, twists and balances. These combine to support and strengthen children, not only physically but also mentally by building confidence in themselves, improving their concentration and helping them to sleep better. and help to maintain their natural flexibility.

Classes are in Shankill Resource Centre. Classes can be arranged to take place in schools or crèches. Contact 'Baby Bump and Beyond' for further details.
