If you’re pregnant or even thinking about having a baby, you probably see pregnancy yoga ads on a daily basis! How do you know which class will offer the best experience and instruction for you and your baby?

Here are a few important points we suggest considering when looking at all the options:

Experience & Expertise

  • How long has the instructor been practicing and teaching pregnancy yoga?
  • Do they have Active Birth or other birth professional qualifications?
  • For example, here at the Active Birth Centre Janet is the founder of Pregnancy Yoga and Lynn has been teaching pregnancy yoga for more than 20 years.
  • With ongoing development they incorporate new techniques and skills to enhance the core Active Birth principles on which their classes are based.


  • How do you feel when you walk in?
  • The studio should be crisp and clean, but welcoming too.
  • You need to feel comfortable to achieve deep relaxation.


  • Will you be driving, walking, or using public transport?
  • Make sure the location suits you and that it feels safe and secure, especially if you’ll be attending evening classes.


Go with your gut!

  • Make sure you’re comparing apples with apples
  • A cheaper class may be packed with more people, reducing personal attention and making it difficult for the instructor to assist or notice if a pose is being done incorrectly – this can be dangerous!
  • Also consider what you get for that price. Is it a quick 45 minutes, or a two-hour session that combines relaxation, movement and time to talk and connect?
  • That natural instinct is so important. A good pregnancy yoga class should have you feeling energised, relaxed, and connected with your baby and your body.
  • It should also just feel right. It’s that strange feeling that’s hard to explain, but we’ve learnt to trust it – and so should you.
