Mum and Baby Yoga

After all the effort you put into maintaining a regular yoga practice throughout your pregnancy, now could be the time to reinvest in yourself with our Mum and Baby classes. Here you will be provided with the time and space to meet some of your own, often neglected needs in a warm and nuturing environment, connecting with a powerful resource that will help you deal positively with the challenges of motherhood.

What is Mum and Baby Yoga?

Mum and Baby yoga classes are specifically tailored to suit new mothers, involving a range of asanas (postures) that will strengthen, tone and restore structural integrity that may have been compromised during pregnancy. You will find relief from the various aches and pains that inevitably occur through lifting and carrying a growing baby and awareness to breath will bring about a profound sense of relaxation and restore energy levels.

What do I do with my baby during class?

We prefer these classes to be some time out for new mums rather than involving babies in the movements. You have the option to have your baby next to you or if you are comfortable they can be on a communal rug with the other babes in the group and under the watchful eye of your teacher enabling you to focus on yourself. If at any stage your baby requires your attention, you simply stop and attend to them and return to your practice once they are settled.
Fussing and crying is totally normal and acceptable - all babies are welcomed just as they are without any expectation of perfect behaviour. They are the bosses of the class!

How will Mum and Baby yoga help me?

You will find many benefits from a regular yoga class including:

  • increased core strength, physical tone and structural integrity
  • relief from tension and discomfort in the back, neck and shoulders
  • increased energy and sense of well-being
  • reduced anxiety and stress level
  • community and friendship

When can I start?

Provided you have healed well after birth you can start any time from 4 - 6 weeks after delivery of your baby. If you have had a caesarean delivery this should be extended to 12 -14  weeks, or until you have received the go ahead from your health professional. Babies up to crawling age are welcome.
