New online yoga classes for pregnant women in Northumberland

Active Northumberland is about to start a new online yoga class to help pregnant women to exercise in confidence, from the comfort and safety of their own home.

The online class will run on Tuesday evenings between 7 - 8pm, starting on February 2, and be delivered by experienced antenatal educator Rachel Rafiefar.

The exercises will help you build strength, stretch, breathe and relax and will support your emotional health too during your pregnancy.

Active Northumberland wellbeing coordinator Jemma Burt explains: “Being pregnant can be daunting at the very best of times but the coronavirus pandemic has meant that many mams to be are feeling isolated as they have not been able to get out and about as much, during their pregnancy, or have the usual support network of friends and family to visit.
