Can anyone recommend a good class for pregnancy yoga in central Edinburgh/Stockbride/New Town?

And has anyone tried Yoga Birth (or specifically ElementalBirth Yoga classes) and, if so, would they recommend them?

I was looking yesterday and came across the Pregnancy and Parents Centre.

Our Yoga for Pregnancy sessions are run by experienced yoga for pregnancy facilitators/birth educators. The sessions consist of yoga which focuses on preparing for birth, easing pregnancy discomforts and relaxation. The sessions are always finished with discussion of birth issues over tea and biscuits, which is included in the timings shown, to allow you get to know others in the group.

We run a number of different groups:

Monday evening- 7.15-9.15pm
Tuesday morning - 10am-12noon
Tuesday evening- 6.30-8.30pm
Wednesday afternoon- 4.00-6.00pm
Thursday evening- 7.00-9.00pm

Our groups are extremely popular as the women value the support they get from their weekly session and many stay in the group until their baby is born. Due to this we run a waiting list system.

They seem to have a few other things on, like nearly new sales, maternity clothes and bump and baby sessions.

Probably a bit late for you KIKKAG but I am starting new Yoga for Pregnancy classes in Edinburgh next week. I've been teaching prenatal yoga for over 6 years now and just moved through here from Ayrshire. You can check out my current class timetable at http://embodiedtransformation.co.uk/yogaandmeditation/class-timetable/ and if anyone has specific questions on Yoga during pregnancy then please don't hesitate to get in touch with me <3

Just to warn you - I've been on the waiting list for the pregnancy and parenting centre for about ten weeks now.

I go to a class at this place http://ashtangayogaedinburgh.com/ which is 10:30am on a Tuesday and is really really great - it has spaces now smile

Am doing yoga for pregnancy at the pregnancy support centre and it is just brilliant!! Really informative, peaceful and lovely groups. Great resource for all areas concerning pregnancy and forthcoming parenthood!

Looks like some places might be coming up soon - a lot of the ladies are ready to have their babies. Cxx

Can recommend both the parents and pregnancy centre and heather burns's classes. Heather's class are more of a pure yoga class. Pregnancy and parent centre is yoga and followed by a chat with tea and coffee.
