Online Pregnancy Yoga Classes

Yoga can play a key role  for a smooth pregnancy and empower the mother-to-be to have the most conscious birth experience. But more importantly, yoga does wonders on the physical and mental development of the baby. Online Pregnancy Yoga is a wonderful option at the comfort of your own home.

Alexa offers her pregnancy yoga classes with an open mind and open heart. Alexa’s approach to yoga is non-dogmatic and her classes incorporate a range of Hatha Yoga traditions which are adapted to suit the overall dynamic of a class as well as each individual’s needs.

Virtual Prenatal Yoga

Antenatal yoga is suitable for mums-to-be from 12 weeks and you can safely practice until your babe arrives. This style of yoga is a lovely gentle, supportive and nourishing practice which will help you enjoy your pregnancy and also alleviate the common ailments sometimes experienced by expectant mums, such as back pain and pelvic girdle pain, aching joints, tiredness, fatigue and breathlessness.

In Alexa’s online pregnancy  yoga sessions you will learn a combination of yoga positions and movements to create comfort and space for you and your baby. You will learn breathing techniques to help you through your pregnancy and through childbirth itself and you will experience some lovely deep relaxation techniques, helping you stay calm and relieve the anxieties associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

Classes are a happy mix of women at different stages of pregnancy and with varied experience of yoga. Pregnancy naturally inspires a connection to and curiosity with our bodies and yoga enhances this, taking us deeper into ourselves.

All poses are clearly demonstrated and designed to help you feel your best as your baby grows. We also practice useful poses for labour and birth so that they become familiar, comfortable and easy to use instinctively in labour.

Breath awareness is an important element of each class and we focus on variations of the breath and traditional pranayama to calm the busy mind. This equips mothers with a powerful tool to stay grounded and focused during labour. We learn how to employ the breath to release fear, tension and difficult thoughts.

Each class ends with a deep relaxation and a quiet moment to feel at peace with your growing baby, a cocoon of love and calm in our busy lives. The vibe in the classes is upbeat, nurturing and friendly.

“Alexa is simply brilliant. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has a wonderful, calm and confident way of teaching. Her classes are so much more than just about yoga and she has a great sense of inclusiveness. She makes you feel uplifted, invigorated and yet totally relaxed and tension-free. Her classes were always the highlight of my week when I was pregnant.”

“Alexa, thank you so much for everything. Your classes have been such an important part of my journey to becoming a mother. Your pregnancy yoga class, not only helped me stay strong and supple during pregnancy but gave me a sense of calm and wellbeing. You gave me courage and strength to face giving birth head on and I used your breathing techniques and mantras to get me through the contractions. Your couples workshop was great for my partner, giving him practical tips to help me during birth, keeping me calm and feeling supported. And the postnatal yoga helped me get back to feeling myself but most importantly a really lovely bonding experience every week for me and my baby. I miss you!”

What people say about Alexa’s classes

Vicky, April 2018

I just wanted to tell you how incredible I think your classes are. I am a Midwife at King’s, and before I attend your classes I was finding it difficult to allow time to care for myself and connect to my pregnancy. However from the first session I attend I immediately felt grounded, centred and at peace. I have a natural tendency and interest in meditation and nature which I found useful to practice with an app through my pregnancy, but your classes took this to another level for me. I felt there was such a nice balance of talking / meditation / breathing exercises and movement. After each class I felt rejuvenated centred at at one with my body and my baby. I ahh’d ooo’d and shhh’d my way through labour just like you had shown us, that alone got me through the hardest parts. I look back on my labour as one of the most intense but spiritual and wonderful experiences of my life and a lot of this is down to you and your classes.


Helen, December 2017

I wanted to thank you for being an excellent yoga and hypnobirthing teacher-your approach to it all and style of teaching, your general gentle and relaxed and positive demeanour were a really important element of my mental preparations-I kept thinking about birthing my baby gently and that every birth is right for every person, and I was in control. My only regret was that I was busy so many Sundays when I had to miss your class!! But I’m glad I made it for one last one last week-I’m sure that helped too!!
Thank you Alexa-you’re brilliant and really inspirational. I will now look forward to you mum and baby classes!!

Liz, March 2016

Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes have been truly inspiration for me in this special time. I have felt the benefits on all levels, mind, body and soul. Alexa teaches with passion, knowledge and love for what it truly means to be a woman and a mother, with honesty and openness to help guide you through the journey of pregnancy and into birthing your child, in whatever space that may be – so that you are educated, informed and relaxed.

Alexa’s pregnancy yoga classes provided so much more than I expected to gain; discussing various experiences of pregnancy and our expectations of giving birth we got lots of advice and guidance as well as a really enjoyable and soothing yoga practice which was varied and dealt with all the aches and pains of pregnancy. I always left the class on a high and I feel it was big factor in my thoroughly enjoying my pregnancy. – Sharice

What people say about Alexa’s classes

Amy, February 2017

“Hi Alexa! We welcomed our daughter Evelyn into the world – and I wanted to thank you so much for all your advice during our yoga classes. I used so much of it during labour – all of the breathing exercises, as well as lots of the positions – and it meant I was able to stay at home until I was 7cm which felt like an achievement!  Your classes were wonderful during pregnancy, and proved invaluable during labour. Thank you.”


Elizabeth, February 2017

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the past few pregnancy yoga sessions that I’ve attended at Evolve with you. I really enjoyed the classes – they were so relaxing and taught me lots of helpful stretches – I always feel MUCH better on a Monday night thanks to you! Thanks again, and hope to see you again in the future – I will also recommend your class to my friends who are expecting.”
