ARE you pregnant and feeling you’d like to do some gentle exercise designed especially for mums-to-be?
The Evesham Observer has teamed up with NCT, the UK’s largest charity for parents, to give two local ladies the chance to win four free passes each for the local NCT Relax Stretch and Breathe class and a £50 voucher to spend in the NCT’s online shop.
The sessions are being run in the Mick Sharp Memorial Hall, The Leys, Bengeworth on Tuesdays from 6pm to 7.30pm.
The friendly and informal classes are a unique opportunity to combine gentle yoga-based exercise with meeting up with other mums-to-be, and you don’t need any previous yoga experience.
Local NCT teacher Lynn Ratcliffe said: “These classes help women gain confidence on their pregnancy journey and can also give relief from aches and pains and promote better sleep.
“Women prepare for the physical experience of birth by learning a variety of breathing techniques, relaxation techniques and positions which will help during labour.
“And of course, the classes are fun and many people make new friends,” she added.
