Classes in Angel Islington N1
incredible journey through pregnancy is unique; unique from everyone
else, unique to you. Yogita has been created to carry a woman, her
baby and her birth partner, through pregnancy and beyond into labour,
birth and postnatal recovery.
Yoga, even in modest measures, during your pregnancy will bring
about renewed vitality, improved concentration and focus, the ability
to create peace of mind and balance within and allow you time to
connect with your baby. Practicing yoga during pregnancy may also
help you have a quicker postnatal recovery.

attended a pregnancy yoga course taught by Jen at Yogita in Islington. Jens pregnancy yoga class is a wonderful
and very special experience. I have really enjoyed her classes-
just what I needed to relax and re-centre after a busy day
and a long commute to and from work! After each of Jens
classes, I felt much more relaxed, centred, with a better
posture and more energy.
Jens professional but also friendly and welcoming approach makes the atmosphere of the
class positive and enjoyable.
Mums-to-be attending her classes feel comfortable and at ease. During her lessons, Jen teaches a
series of sequences especially adapted for pregnancy, with the aim to
