” I had a prolonged labour, however I firmly believe I would not have survived if it was not for the breathing techniques I learnt at Janice’s yoga class. Her calm persona made the sessions relaxing but also released a positive energy within. I have every intention of continuing. Thank you Janice! “

Pregnancy (antenatal) yoga classes held in Addiscombe, Croydon, Surrey. Taught by Janice Champion – a qualified Yoga Teacher, Hypnobirthing teacher and former midwife.
Classes include aspects of Hypnobirthing as well as yoga to prepare you mentally and physically for labour and birth.
You will learn how to breathe to bring you into a state of calm. When you are relaxed in labour your body works as it should. We practise breathing exercises to help work with your body to shorten contractions and guided meditation to increase feelings of well being and confidence in your body. Specially adapted asanas (postures) are taught to strengthen and tone the muscles – especially muscles needed in labour.
Classes can be started from 14 weeks of pregnancy. If you are unsure of your suitability for yoga, please consult your GP.
