Practicing yoga through pregnancy has many benefits:

What to Expect...

Week 1 focuses on gentle body curiosity with options provided so you and bub in belly can find comfortable shapes that can support strengthening and relaxation.

 

Week 2 focuses on gentle breath by introducing the 4 parts of your breath. Here you can explore strategies to release tension like focusing on your exhale and working with a mantra like ‘Let go.’

 

Week 3 is about inviting a gentle mind with kindness and non judgement. There is repetition of body shapes and breath techniques from the weeks before. This class also ends with a pain management visualisation.

 

Week 4 brings together the previous weeks with repetition and adds the focus of finding your steadiness and your ease. Exploring a steady foundation allows you to invite spaciousness and ease in your body and mind.

About Nicole...

I found yoga at a local gym with my mum, it was a time of stress when I was finishing high school. Many years on now and my love for all things yoga continues to increase by the day. 

I have a 500hr yoga teacher diploma which I completed with The Yoga Institute. I am registered with Yoga Australia. I am furthering my studies to one day become a yoga therapist to continue to create spaces of awareness, rest, connection, nourishment and healing. 

I am a yoga teacher, social worker, daughter, partner, sister and friend. I am a lover of animals, nature and humans. I have supported many people in diverse communities. I have experienced the effects of trauma and anxiety. The practice of unifying my mind, heart, body, soul and breath has changed my life and sparked my healing journey. 

My passion is sharing gentle, personalised, breath centred yoga for healing. I am always learning from each person I connect with. 

 I look forward to knowing you and holding space for you soon.
