Pregnancy Yoga Classes

Talk time with tea

Thousands of women have benefitted from Lolly Stirks Yoga in Pregnancy Classes which have been developed over 40 years.

During tea time, at the beginning of the class, a forum or circle is created for women to meet up and discuss pregnancy, birth and baby related subjects. These lively discussions, often led by your questions, cover anything from the hormones of labour and birth, birth plans, water birth, and hospital/home birth, to induction and postnatal care. We also just chat and get to know each other… ❤️

The Yoga

Following the discussion we get on the mat to practise a form of yoga which is perfectly tailored for pregnancy. It not only keeps you healthy, energised and relaxed throughout pregnancy, but prepares you for labour, birth and beyond. We keep the postures simple, so you really don’t need to have any yoga experience. The powerful combination of gravity and the breath, tune you in to your instinctive self. And the repetition and subliminal positive suggestions which are a form of hypnosis (hypnobreathing) will prepare you to let go to the waves of contractions during labour.


Breathing essential to life and birth, is the core of our class. Over the weeks spent with Lolly, through the practice of breath awareness, visualisation and sounding, you will become familiar with the natural rhythm of your breath and increase your ability to focus inward.

When practiced in simple postures hypnobreathing will enable you to go into the ‘zone’, a meditative state which is perfect for labour. This practice is healing and calms the busy mind during pregnancy, clearing the way for you to listen to your own intuitive voice, so that when your body takes over during labour, you will instinctively know how to use your breath to soothe, steady and guide yourself through the waves of contractions and breathe yourself to and easier birth.
