    Hollo, are you near Ashgrove? Revive there might do it - they do yoga and pg pilates I think (they do at the city one anyway), so they could be worth a try. The physio from the Wesley does special pg classes which are a combination of pilates and yoga at the Wesley also. If they don't suit, perhaps ask your care provider or maternity hossy if they know of anywhere. There is bound to be somewhere.

    Also, if you find somewhere, can you update to let us know? I know this one has been asked before.

    Yogababy. Google them and you'll find their website.

    Suzanne is absolutely fantastic. I observed one of her classes as part of my training, and I've had a few of my mums do her course as well. She does prenatal yoga but as part of her course she also covers active birth, comfort measures for labour etc.

    Really wonderful, I highly recommend her

    Hollo, I didn't do pg pilates but I wish I did! I did pilates before pg and have recently started again. It is awesome for core strength (so great to help prevent lower back pain) and also for pelvic floor muscles. It's not hard on the body, you can do gentle pilates. Pg pilates targets the pelvic floor and tummy muscles and these are very important for labour and birth and also post pg (can't stress how important strong pelvic floor muscles are).
