Pregnancy Yoga Programme
We have partnered with international yoga teacher Mercedes Sieff to deliver her private three-stage pregnancy yoga programme to your home or workplace via specially trained teachers.
Mercedes Sieff is co-founder of the award winning health retreat Yeotown in Devon as well as the Yeotown Kitchen in London. An expert vinyasa flow yoga teacher and certified Positive Psychology coach, her passion is guiding people on how to build upon their existing strengths in order to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, cultivate what is best within themselves, and enhance their experiences of love, work and play. Oh, and she's also a mother of two gorgeous girls.
The Pommama programme is a vinyasa flow style of yoga with modifications for pregnancy. Unlike many prenatal yoga lessons based on a more static 'hatha' style of yoga, a private prenatal Pommama class is breath and movement-based and focuses on staying active, strong and connected as your pregnancy progresses.
We don't believe one class suits every stage of pregnancy. Many active women have told us they found pregnancy yoga lessons boring, especially in the earlier weeks when they still very much wanted to move. "I went to a couple of classes when I was pregnant myself and thought they were neither one thing nor the other," says Mercedes. "Your body is not the same at 16 weeks as it is at 36 weeks and your practice is very different. I soon gave up and went back to my regular practice and simply adapted it as I went. This is really what this type of pregnancy yoga is - an adapted vinyasa flow class."
We are delighted to roll out Mercedes three-stage prenatal programme, via our private Pommama teachers.
