What are the classes like?
For mum, our beautiful 6-week course will support post birth recovery and provide a safe place with other mums to honour your body. For your baby, it’s a nurturing time to be involved in gentle stretching, massage and interactive play.
Practicing yoga together gives you and baby a special bonding time, playing, moving, breathing and relaxing together in a safe supportive environment. Specialised post-natal yoga enables you to reconnect with your body, whilst gentle baby yoga can help with colic, digestion, sleep and aid development.
Yoga movements can mimic the soothing rocking motion she felt while in the womb. This stimulates her relaxation responses, helping your baby fall asleep more easily and sleep for longer.
Mum and baby yoga is probably the most yogic yoga in the world, as mums quickly learn that things don't always work out as planned. Its great to accept that you may not manage as much as you expected too, and that's fine, its life as a mum!
Throughout this course we focus on:
- Connecting with the pelvic floor to strengthen and tone for long term continence and higher energy levels.
- Quality interaction though movement, rhymes and walking meditation.
- Developing core strength by activating the abdominals and pelvic floor.
- Calming techniques & holds for babies.
- Poses to release lower back pain and tension in the neck and shoulders, and strengthening the back.
- Opening the heart space to feel more love, kindness and patience.
- Develop relaxation practices for you and your baby using the breath, finding relaxation in the sometimes hectic world of being a mother!
What do I need to bring?
All mats, blankets and equipment are provided. I recommend just bringing along a baby blanket for baby to lye on. A bottle of water and some comfortable clothing for your yoga practice. Please feed, change and rock your baby during class. Classes are very relaxed and baby-led.
