About RocciByeBaby - Pre and Post Natal Yoga
Hello and welcome to RocciYoga and RocciByeBaby, - we offer a range of Yoga classes including pre and post natal classes, and childrens yoga.
Pregnancy yoga is one of very few forms of exercise that recommended by midwives and doctors during pregnancy. The classes are suitable for anyone at least 14 weeks into your pregnancy and will be a comforting, relaxing and possibly educational addition to your amazing pregnancy journey.
The classes will include a combination of asana’s (postures), pranayama (breathing) and relaxation techniques. I hope it will also be an opportunity to meet other Mum’s to be and building friendships that can remain after your babies have been born and beyond. Throughout the classes we will develop our knowledge of asana’s, discovering those ones which help relieve pregnancy-related aches and pains and help you find comfortable positions for work, sleep and of course the birth.
The 8 week course is designed to help you and your birth partner to prepare for the arrival and life with your new baby. A benefit of the course is that every week we will have carefully selected guest speaker’s to help build on the techniques and knowledge you gain from pre-natal yoga. These will includea pregnancy friendly chiropractor, a doula who is also a breastfeeding councillor, a hypnobirthing practitioner. During thesetalks there will be an opportunity to have tea (herbal if wanted) and biscuits (chocolate if required) and a chance for a chat and to ask questions. Our last class a we will have a special treat, this might be reflexology treatments or a pregnancy friendlybeauty treatment.
One of the classes will be a special session for you and your birth partner to attend, so that they are included in this part of your journey and can share in the knowledge and maybe learn a few new techniques to help you before, during and after the birth.

In Yoga Kids Roc classes there is a beautiful balance between spontaneity and structure. The kids help create the class with guidance from Rocci. We use stories, games, music, breathingand poses to create a journeyin different times and places around theuniverse. We end each class with a short quiet time in which we learn the skills to relax. Even at 3 years old children can learn the benefits of time to sit/lie still and quieten the mind, helping to control emotions.
Yoga Practitioners have long seen the benefits of yoga including stress and pain relief, improved circulation, a sense of well being and inner peace. Yoga is a great remedy for the stresses found in the school environment. It encourages concentration, positive thinking, confidence, self-esteem and self-expression.
