What is 'Mum and baby' yoga?

A lovely combination of postnatal yoga for mums and gentle baby yoga movements for baby. 

Suitable from 6 weeks to approx 12 months postnatal, following any kind of birth.

Mum and Baby classes are gentle, caring, fun, safe places for mums  to enjoy an uninterrupted hour or so with their baby without the worries and concerns of day to day life. We enjoy approximately 45 minutes of yoga practise and have time at the end to have a cuppa and enjoy a chat and homemade cake! Sessions involve songs, sound and sensory activities for babies, breathing techniques, gentle postures for mum and baby and specific postures just for mums. Each session is completed with a lovely relaxation which both mum and baby will enjoy and feel more calm and nourished. 

 

Classes are specifically designed for new mums to bring your body gently back to alignment, closing those overworked areas after pregnancy and birth, and supporting your journey in recovering strength and tone in a safe yet challenging way.

Babies are integrated into class with simple Baby Yoga movements based on the principles and postures of yoga which will help you and your baby to communicate, bond and best of all relax.

We focus on shoulders, upper back, lower back, and core, integrating deep pelvic floor toning and ‘core strength’ micro-movements. Breathing and relaxation techniques will help you to re-balance, rejuvenate and re-energise for life with a new baby.

Yoga poses and movements are given at varying levels to suit each individual. We work on gentle progression over the first 6 months postnatal to avoid long term problems of joint instability and hypermobility. This leads to a secure transition to stronger poses after 6 months.
