Bristol YogaSpace

At YogaSpace, the highly qualified instructors practice a style of yoga called Viniyoga, which is breath-centred and therapeutically oriented.

This attitude lends itself perfectly to pregnancy and postnatal yoga, with classes running throughout the week. You’re welcome to just drop in as and when and babies are welcome at their Baby & Me yoga classes. Pregnancy classes are even two-for-one, so you can enjoy the opportunity to try it out and see if it suits.
