Published on 9th May 2011

Leisure@cheltenham now offers pre-natal yoga classes, every Monday from 12.45 -1.30pm.


Ladies are welcome to come along to the classes which focus on strength, stamina and breath control to facilitate a joyful birth.

Dedicated instructors will guide expectant mums through a journey of yoga postures and breathing, specifically designed to help strengthen pelvic floor, uterus and back muscles, as well as improving circulation and digestion.

Suzanne Meaden, group exercise co-ordinator said: ''I am pleased that we can add these sessions into our great portfolio of fitness classes.  I hope that expectant mums will come along and see for themselves the benefits that yoga can offer.''

The classes cost £5.50 per session and can be booked up to seven days in advance.  Contact customer services on 01242 528764 for further details.
