Anyone know any good antenatal yoga, pilates or other exercise classes in the area that don't cost a bomb?

No ideas, but would be interested to know as well!

Hi glam. Am planning on going to the physio-run course at RL that starts in Feb. Think it's Thursday mornings. See you there?

Erie, the NCT run courses in Tower Hamlets, and I know they've just changed teachers so it's been a bit disjointed recently but they're back booking them again now. I think they're held at the Canary Wharf Idea Store. If you fill in your details on the NCT website they will contact you.

Where are you? I'm in Limehouse and baby is due in March. HTH

Planning on going to birthing centre as long as all stays well(fingers crossed!). NCT didn't initially contact me until December... so I wouldn't worry. I bet they'll be in touch soon.

NCT finally got in touch to say someone will be in touch!!birthing centre looks fab but am still nervous about the lack of doctors and limited pain relief.

Glad to hear Erie. Looks like they've started booking the courses again. We're going on one this weekend.
Birthing centres aren't for everyone- good on you for having a look though!
Sure we'll meet up at some point

Check out the Children's Centres, my closest (overlands) is going to run a yoga course. the childrens centres operate from pregnancy - 5 years.

Also I loved swimming when I was pregnant.

Hello TH mum's!!!!
There is bodywise on Roman Road that holds ante natal yoga classes and also another one on Bathnal Green rd ( will look for name) above the arcade looking place just past the bridge.

Did you know a new birthing centre has been opened at the Barkantine Centre in E14-Looks fantastic!

Hi all,

I have just stumbled across Return to Glory- they may be of help- they come to your home if you are living anywhere in London or in the M25. Going to look at their site further and shall let you know! (

I have just started Pregnancy yoga at Yoga Place, BG, on a saturday morning.

It's a good class, and Carmen who teaches on saturday makes it very enjoyable.

They also have classes during the week ay night, and during the day.

The ladies are between 38 weeks and 13 weeks, and are all really friendly.

There is also classes at Bodywise also at BG, but haven't been, so can't recommend them.
