Workshops & courses
Workshops and courses are a great way to deepen your practise or to try something completely new. As well as regular beginners yoga and pilates courses, we host one off weekend workshops hosted by the Pause team and guest teachers.
Pre & postnatal Yoga
Practicing yoga during pregnancy is a great way to bond with your unborn baby and prepare for birth. We've got classes to support you during pregnancy and beyond. Our prenatal yoga class is suitable for mums to be from 12 weeks to full term. Our postnatal and parent and baby classes provide the perfect opportunity to get our bodies moving, aiding post-partum recovery, whilst bonding with your baby.
