Mother and Baby Yoga
These are Mother focused classes combining yoga with elements of pilates to safely get postnatal bodies moving, rebuilding strength from the inside out. The classes are run by experienced yoga instructors who are also qualified physios with an understanding of post natal recovery.
Using movement and breath, the classes aim to strengthen and stabilise the pelvic region and core. Practice is specifically tailored to support reintegration and healing of postnatal bodies. It will also help you find space and freedom through the chest and upper back to help manage and ease tension that can form when holding, carrying and feeding babies.
Each week will offer a theme to encourage reflection, and engage with the mental and emotional as well as the physical elements of yoga and we will use affirmations to help connect with yourself and support your journey through motherhood.
Practice always closes with well deserved relaxation.
There will also be some baby yoga / baby massage to keep the little ones happy. You can feed, change and tend to your babies during class whenever he or she needs you.
Yoga offers a wealth of benefits for new mums, and these classes provide a friendly, welcoming environment to try it out. It's also a great opportunity to meet other new mums and build community. We have the studio space for a little while after class, and encourage you to stay and socialise if you wish.
Mums can join the classes as soon as they feel they are ready to do so following their 6 week midwife / doctors check up. You can continue until you baby starts to crawl.
