About mum and baby postnatal yoga classes
My class is a friendly, welcoming environment open to everyone with babies aged 3 months to crawling (before they are on the move!). Previous yoga experience is not necessary. The classes are made up of gentle yoga moves for both you and your baby to do in a relaxed, sociable environment. Nothing is compulsory and you can chose which moves you and your baby would like to join in with.
Why do postnatal mum and baby yoga?
The postnatal adult yoga that we do in the class can help to gently strengthen, stretch, increase flexibility and safely recover your body after pregnancy and birth. We also aim to calm our minds and improve emotional wellbeing, whilst bonding and having fun with our babies through touch, movement and singing. The relaxation we do in the class may be passed on to your baby for a more calm and content infant with enhanced wellbeing. Mum and baby postnatal yoga can also be helpful for parents with fatigue, stress, postnatal depression and anxiety.
The baby yoga sections of the class help babies to have a sense of security and wellbeing and prepare them for future physical and emotional milestones such as laughing, rolling, crawling, walking and talking. This is done through loving interaction and playful moves. Baby yoga is also a great way to increase bonding, encourage calmness in your baby and promote natural sleep.
You are welcome to feed, change and comfort your baby at any point during the class. If your baby cries in the class that is completely ok! You’re invited to take the class at your own pace and rest when you or your baby needs to. Please miss out anything that feels uncomfortable for you or baby.
