Yoga for Pregnancy class in Bath & District Branch - 9A/C101
- NCT Courses and Covid-19
Until the end of November 2020 our courses are online, not in person, due to the UK’s social distancing measures, particularly the inclusion of pregnant women in a ‘vulnerable group’ advised to avoid social contact.
We know how much you value our in-person courses so we’re keeping our options open for courses from December 2020 onwards. Currently you can still book these as in-person classes but we’ll only bring people back together in venues once it is safe to do so. We’ll never put you, your baby or your family at risk. Read our course FAQs and Covid-19 pregnancy and birth information.
Our Covid-19 Price Promise: If you book a course that is already being delivered online you’ll receive a 15% discount at the time of booking. If you book a course that is currently offered as in-person, we’ll give you back 15% of your course fee if we need to move it online to ensure your safety.
The aim of this class is for you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time, while improving your physical and emotional wellbeing and helping you feel more confident and positive about birth.
The postures are very gentle, specifically designed so you can attend throughout your pregnancy (after 12 weeks) and can be adapted to individual needs.
This class is suitable for all women, regardless of their fitness level. No previous experience of yoga is necessary.
