"I'd just like to say how much I'm enjoying your classes and your expertise and advice so far. Its really is so invaluable to learn more about birth from a different angle (different to that of an obstetrician!) - so thank you!"

"Just dropping you a line to say my little baby boy arrived on October 1st and is doing really well. I definitely feel your yoga classes stood to me in good stead in labour and I managed to do it on gas and air with good breathing throughout. I'll definitely be recommending them to friends in the future!"

"Our daughter Emily was born on the 25th of June via a successful vbac!! Thanks again for the yoga classes. Certainly came in handy for my natural birth."

"I attended your pregnancy yoga classes in Como and once in South Lake. I would like to say thank you very much for all the information that you provided in the class and for encouraging natural birth.

I am so happy that we had a water birth too without any pain relief of any form.

It has been amazing!!! Baby was born on 23rd November (5 days overdue). From the first contraction till delivery it was 4 hrs.

If you did not share your birth story with us I would not even have thought of water birth. Thank you very much!"

Prenatal Yoga - Casual Classes

prenatal yoga

The casual classes incorporate breathing, relaxation and active birthing techniques as well as yoga postures and sequences. In combination, these provide women with the ability to self-manage the discomforts of pregnancy and prepare themselves for an active birth.

  • one 60 minute class per week
  • $15 per class, pay-as-you-go
  • bookings not required (drop-in basis)

The casual classes are best suited to women that have previously completed a Barefoot Babes Prenatal Yoga Course or have previously completed childbirth education e.g. with their first baby. They are also suitable for women that cannot attend one of the Prenatal Yoga Courses.

Classes run weekly throughout the year, with the exception of long weekends and a break over the Christmas/New Year period.

Why Prenatal Yoga?

Prenatal Yoga provides not only exercise specifically tailored to pregnant women but it also incorporates breathing, relaxation and active birthing techniques, along with mindfulness practise. These combined, give a wholistic, mind, body and spirit approach to pregnancy and birthing.

The yoga postures help to stretch and strengthen through the body, create space for the baby, assist with optimal foetal positioning, alleviating aches and pains, and help to create openness through the hips and pelvis. The breathing, relaxation and mindfulness techniques prepare the mother mentally for birth. While active birthing techniques help with managing pain during labour, help baby move down the birth canal and create maximum openness in the pelvis for delivery.

Prenatal yoga is a valuable experience on any pregnancy journey.

When can I start?

Prenatal Yoga is suitable for all women, at any stage of pregnancy, with no prior yoga experience needed.

You can start doing Prenatal Yoga from the very beginning of your pregnancy, right up until you give birth.

If you are in your first trimester and experiencing morning sickness, you may prefer to wait until this has settled in the second trimester, before you begin classes.

Class Format

Each class begins with relaxation, incorporating breathing techniques and pelvic floor exercises. From relaxation we flow through a series of yoga postures. Options are given for most postures, enabling you to tailor them to suit your needs and changing body. To finish, we focus again on breathing techniques, relaxation and mindfulness practise.

What to Bring

Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely.
Also, bring a cushion/pillow/bolster to use as support during class and for relaxation.
Water is also a good idea.

Some yoga mats are provided but if possible, please bring your own.


$15 per class, pay-as-you-go, no bookings required
Payments can be made in cash at the beginning of each class (there is no eftpos).
