J’anaki Ra

Recommended by most doctors and midwives, prenatal yoga offers a multitude of benefits to both mother and baby throughout pregnancy, during birth and beyond.

Yoga Classes

Prenatal Yoga Classes are facilitated by J’anaki Ra, founder and owner of Yoga Mama. J’anaki began her personal yoga practice in 2004 at the Sivananda Yoga Centre in London. After many years of enduring the corporate world she decided to embark upon a journey of the Soul, completing travels throughout Asia, and most notably the birth-place of Yoga: India. Now, while pregnancy yoga is still a major focus for J’anaki, Yoga Mama aims to become a hub for wom(b)en in all stages of life; offering yoga, energy work, meditation, retreats and a community women to connect with and support each other.

Benefits of Yoga

  • Joint exercises – perfect for poor circulation, swelling/water retention and excellent to improve mobility. Also enhances squatting and other birthing positions.
  • Gentle Stretching – maintains supple and toned muscles. Relieves back ache.
  • Breathing – balances the autonomic nervous system which regulates the major systems of the body and controls hormonal secretions. Deep breathing increases the intake of oxygen to both mother and baby. ‘Birthing breaths’ aid in the preparation for a calm birthing.
  • Yoga Nidra Relaxation – Blood pressure is also lowered during this relaxation technique and one gains the equivalent of 4 hours deep sleep. Yoga Nidra also promotes inner communication with your child and assists in releasing any impressions associated with the fear of birthing.
  • Class Schedule
