Yoga in pregnancy
Hi Chris

I'm 16 weeks pregnant and I would like to start doing yoga. Can you recommend a good place to go in the CBD area of Cape Town. I would like to attend a small class. I prefer smaller classes because they feel more personal.

Hi Con - congratulations on your decision. Starting any new physical practice whilst pregnant can be challenging and so too with yoga but I have no doubt that the benefits far outweigh the challenges. It’s a good idea to find a smaller class and perhaps also a specialized prenatal yoga class. I suggest picking up a free copy of Link Up magazine at your local health store or the classifieds and trying a few people from there.
Good luck.
