Exercising while Pregnant FAQ

Can I attend if I’m heavily pregnant?

Until your tenth week of pregnancy, you can attend regular classes, but you must inform the teacher, as some poses should be avoided. Between 10 and 14 weeks, you shouldn’t attend classes, however experienced you are.

Do I need prior experience?

If you are from 14 to 28 weeks pregnant, you do not need to have previous exercise experience before. After 28 weeks, you can only join classes if you have prior exercise experience.

What else should I bear in mind?

If you have any existing medical condition (knee pain, neck pain, high blood pressure etc) you should consult your doctor before attending the class. If you have a health problem, come 5-10 minutes early to talk to Tania the instructor before the class.

If your baby is in an unusual position, you must inform the instructor before taking part in the class.

What should I wear to class?

You should wear comfortable loose clothing that allows teachers to see your body, including your feet and legs. Most students wear leggings or shorts.

When should I stop practising?

Most women can practise up to the last week of their pregnancy.
