Postnatal Yoga for Mums and Babies – 5 week course
January 20 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am
An event every week that begins at 10:15 am on Thursday, repeating until February 3, 2022
A fun, engaging and relaxing postnatal yoga class for mums & babies
This 5 week course is specially designed to help with new mothers’ postnatal recovery whilst also allowing time for engaging, bonding and relaxing with baby.
The course is suitable for all news mums from 6+ weeks postnatal up until babies are fully crawling.
Each week the focus will be on helping new mothers to regain strength in their body, to open and release areas of tightness and tension in the back, neck and shoulders, and to find space for relaxation. We will also include some gentle yoga stretches and movements for babies.
The course will include movements and breath work to safely and gently tone the abdominal muscles from deep within, allowing them to ‘knit back’ together, and to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles in conjunction with the breath: a ‘closing of the body’ after pregnancy and labour.
The classes also focus on the re-alignment of the spine and pelvis, and encourage an awareness of posture in all movements, including the care and handling of babies.
An emphasis on the breath throughout the classes will help to develop a sense of wellbeing, and we build in time for relaxation so both mothers and babies feel nurtured.
We explore postures and practices mums can do with and without their babies so they can easily continue their yoga at home.
The classes will be informal, fun and relaxed, and mums are free to feed, change, comfort or soothe babies to sleep whenever necessary.
The benefits of regularly attending postnatal classes in the form of a course include:
- the course allows us to build on practices and progress each week
- regular attendance allows you to really feel the benefits of the practice
- it also allows babies to feel more comfortable and at ease in the class, and with other babies
- a regular group builds a greater sense of support and community amongst new mums and babies
The course is a great opportunity to reconnect with familiar faces from pregnancy yoga classes and to get to know other new mums in the local area.
£13 per session or £63 for a bundle of 5 (Mums are encouraged to sign up for the full 5 weeks. If there are places left, then it might be possible to just pay per class)
