12pm – 1pm The postnatal period is a very special time for mothers and babies. This taster class is designed to provide a warmly supportive environment where the new mother can reconnect with herself physically, mentally and emotionally while playfully bonding with her new baby through the practice of yoga together. Classes include a gentle progression of yoga postures and rhythmical sequences to aid postnatal recovery, while breathwork, relaxation and visualization help teach mum and baby how to relax in each others presence. Babies participate with the mothers throughout the class enjoying age appropriate stimulation exercises, songs, rhymes and dry massage, as well as being part of mum’s posture work and relaxation.
No previous yoga experience necessary. Suitable for all Mums and small babies. The class environment can be a challenge for crawling babes who want to escape and not suitable for toddlers.
