Yvi offers bespoke affordable 1 to 1 classes/ private small groups of up to 4 which are available throughout the week/ weekend.

Yoga - in a nutshell

Yoga describes a variety of physical, mental and spiritual practices derived in ancient India. A regular yoga routine improves not only your physical health, fitness and flexibility but is incredibly helpful also to create a sense of inner balance and calm on mental-emotional level.  The practice of yoga and mindfulness truly encourages a deeply holistic and unified approach towards life - a yogic and mindful attitude - which unfolds in us a complete and integral understanding of the interconnection between body, mind and spirit.

 

Pregnancy Yoga with Yvi - What to expect ?

Look forward to some restorative exercises as well as some gentle flow yoga, breathing techniques, replenishing relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation. Practices are chosen to alleviate discomforts during pregnancy and encourage overall physical health and well-being as well as mental-emotional balance. The yoga classes are designed to suit your personal abilities and needs - this could be a calm and gentle restorative approach, a focus on strengthening and exercising tight and tense muscle groups, a slightly stronger workout or -  most of the times,  a combination of it all. You will learn and explore some essential and very useful breathing techniques (pranayama) that are particularly helpful during your pregnancy and labour. You will finish your yoga class with a well deserved and wonderfully relaxing guided deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and/ or a short guided mindfulness meditation practice.

Hands on adjustments to postures are offered throughout, allowing you to bring your body into best possible alignment available to you and work with the level you are at.

Yvi's classes emphasise a mindful and integrated understanding of your being where you will naturally be able to begin to observe, let go and move into a space of deep calm and inner silence. The 1 to 1 and small private groups class format allows for a versatile, bespoke and very personal experience.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

— Aline Peet

I have been going to Pregnancy Yoga Classes with Yvi since I was 21 weeks pregnant. I not only find her classes relaxing but also very good for my pregnant body as it stretches every part of my body I didn't know was possible to be stretched while pregnant. Yvi is very knowledgeable and always aim her classes on what our body is asking for on that week so our pregnancy aches can go away.
I have also had pregnancy massages with her and they were amazing - I felt very relaxed afterwords.
I would strongly recommend Yvi as an yoga instructor and also her wonderful massages.
