Pregnancy Classes at Bristol Yoga Centre

At Bristol Yoga Centre we offer specialist pregnancy & postnatal classes. If you are new to Pilates or Yoga, it’s best to attend these specialist classes. Our group classes are kept small to allow individual attention and safe practice.

Pregnancy Pilates with Celia

Monday 17:00 - 18:00pm

If you already have a regular Pilates practice and don't feel too tired, you can start these classes during your first trimester. If you are new to Pilates it’s probably best to wait until after your first trimester. You can continue these classes right up until the birth of your baby.


Postnatal Pilates with Celia

Thursday 19:30pm – 20:30pm

This class is suitable for women from six weeks post-birth until you have regained the strength to go back to regular Pilates or exercise classes. You can begin these classes up to 18 months post birth if you haven’t yet focused on recovery.  The exercises will be modified to suit individual needs.

General classes welcoming pregnancy


We believe that it’s best to attend specialist classes where possible but if you’re more experienced and would like to come to one of our general classes, these classes are also suitable.

The following classes are taught by teachers who hold a specialist pregnancy qualification. Please let the teacher’s know that you are pregnant before the class starts.

Private lessons

You may want to consider doing a private pregnancy yoga lesson , these are open to everyone but would be particularly useful if you have any health issues or complications. You can always decide to join group classes once you feel confident and ready.
