This Post-natal Yoga 5 week course is a great way to support your body’s recovery after birth and incorporate bonding with your new baby. The practice aids in healing, increasing relaxation, and gentle strengthening. These classes are also a wonderful way to connect with other new mothers in a supportive and healthy environment. Post-natal classes are appropriate for women from about six weeks postpartum and up until about six months, or when baby begins to crawl – twins welcome!
Each week we will focus on postures and techniques to help strengthen the body and mind. We will address the key areas of pelvic floor, aching neck and shoulders, loss of stamina and strengthening the abdominals. For babies we will include baby massage, techniques for relieving stomach or digestive strain and a technique to relive bouts of crying.
The classes are designed to provide you with techniques that can assist in the transitioning of becoming a new mother but also to create a safe, warm and nurturing space where baby can join you in your yoga practice.

These Post-Natal classes are baby led, which means you are welcome to feed, hold and walk about with your baby when you need to. Most of the postures are incorporated to include baby, if baby is sleeping then that is fine too. You will learn to integrate baby into your yoga practice whilst feeling the benefits of yoga.
Yoga provides a wonderful resource for you and your baby that allows you to deal positively with stress, and encourage mindful relaxation in your role as a mother and to help gently guide the body and mind back to a healthy state once more.
