Pregnancy & Relaxation Yoga in Croydon

Are you experiencingaches and pains such as back pain or swollen joints? Do you feel anxious about your pregnancy or childbirth? Are you having trouble sleeping or bonding with your unborn baby? 

At InJoy Yoga we have been pioneering pregnancy yoga in Croydon for the past 17 years and have supported over 5000 women, their partners and babies to have a positive pregnancy and birth experience. Rozy, the Founder of InJoy Yoga is a teacher trainer for Birthlight and Doula and she has personally mentored all InJoy teachers including the lovely Veronica who was pregnant with her second child when she first attended InJoy pregnancy yoga classes with Rozy

Yoga encourages an awareness of the link between breath, mind and body which is especially beneficial during pregnancy. Don’t worry if you have never done any yoga before – it is gentle and safe exercise suitable for anyone and most midwifes recommend it! This class focuses on teaching good relaxation practices to use at home as well as carefully adapted yoga to suit the pregnancy body and support Optimal Foetal Positioning for an easier birth.

Our classes are 90 minutes long to allow for valuable chat time and a long relaxation practice at the end of the class...often the only time pregnant women relax! We know through years of research that if we want a calm and confident baby, this comes from teaching relaxation practices and building confidence in their mama! Many friendships are formed and continue into our baby & postnatal yoga classes. We are proud to offer continuity of care when it is so easy in pregnancy to feel as though leaflets and 10 minute appointment slots are all that are on offer!

Testimonials

Dr Lorna Nelson, Clinical Psychologist 

I cannot recommend InJoy pregnancy yoga highly enough. After attending pregnancy yoga elsewhere, and finding it an unwelcoming experience, I was looking for something that made me feel both connected to my baby and to other pregnant women, at a time when I felt on a physical and emotional rollercoaster. As an avid gym user and busy professional pre-pregnancy, I wanted something to help me slow down and reconnect.   
  
InJoy provided me with this and Tuesday night pregnancy yoga with Rozy quickly became my favourite time of the week. Rozy was welcoming and nurturing from the outset, providing a sacred space to feel accepted and reassured. She has a special gift for making other people feel important, validated and nurtured and this creates an atmosphere of trust and acceptance within the group. Sadly I have to say farewell to the group due to relocating but I will try to hold onto the ethos Rozy creates and use the DVDs as much as possible!

I wanted to share with you the good news as well. Our little Anoushka was finally born on Monday 2nd November at 7pm (3.5 kg/53cm). I say finally as I had lost waters 6 days earlier and no true labour was happening. The day has been very intense but it went amazingly well, naturally and in water! We couldn't dream of a better experience after my 1st traumatic birth (pre-eclampsia/failed induction at 35w/C section). We are so grateful for the confidence gained throughout the yoga classes with you and Rozy and thank you both and the team from the bottom of our heart.

As a result of the natural delivery my recovery was also incredibly quick; I walked out of hospital the next day! Thank you!

Jessica Peterson 

The best thing I did during my pregnancy was to join this pregnancy yoga class.   
  
Of course like all first time mums I was 'all over the place' and InJoy's classes seemed to make me relax into the idea that I was actually going to have a baby! There is so much energy and lots of great ideas, phrases and expressions for every occasion. I have problems with my pelvis and this class taught me some handy stretches and breathing techniques.   
  
I was blessed with a fantastic labour in Mayday birth centre, jumping on the ball and in the pool whilst listening to dance tunes on my iPod! My boyfriend said I was using my yoga breathing loads. I truly feel that my positive birthing experience is due in large part to pregnancy yoga. It gave me a chance to not only become more in tune with my own body, but also to learn the art of relaxation and meditation on a whole new level.   
  
My pregnancy was not free from complications by any means; however, I was more able to overcome each hurdle and trust everything would be okay because of what yoga has done for me.
