Lydia

 
Lydia did her first yoga class in the Himalayas when she was a little girl and loved it. Yoga has been a life long pursuit, but to give her a greater understanding of how the body works, and why it sometimes doesn’t, Lydia has also trained as a Bowen therapist and completed a diploma in physiology and anatomy. Having spent the last decade working with children and pregnant mums,she decided that working as a pre and post natal yoga teacher was her true calling. Lydia passionately believes that practicing yoga throughout your pregnancy and beyond, strengthens both the mind and body in preparation for labour, and paves the way for a more balanced and healthy life for you and your child.


Lydia instructs the following:
  • Prenatal Yoga
  • Open to those who are completely new to Yoga as well as those who are experienced. Must be beyond 14 weeks and can continue up until the birth.
     
    Prebooking is essential.

    What is Prenatal Yoga? 
    During pregnancy your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga.

    Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility.

    It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.

    What Are The Benefits Of Prenatal Yoga?

    • Improved sleep
    • Reduced stress
    • Increased strength, flexibility and endurance
    • Decreased lower back pain
    • Decreased nausea
    • Decreased carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Decreased headaches
    • Reduced risk of preterm labor
    • Lowered risk of intrauterine growth restriction (condition that slows the baby’s growth)
    • In addition to the benefits listed, studies have found there is a relationship between prenatal yoga and the reduction of hypertension-related complications, as well as, improvement of fetal outcome.
