Postnatal Yoga

A wonderful way to bond with your baby, regain your strength and make friends. These classes are specially designed to allow you to safely exercise with your baby by your side, or joining in. If you have some child care, you are also welcome to come along and enjoy some well-deserved you time, child-free. 

Baby & Me postnatal yoga classes are suitable from 6 weeks after a vaginal birth, or 8 weeks after a c-section, until your baby is on the move. At which time you can then progress into our Movers & Me classes and develop your yoga practice further.

As with any exercise after birth, it is always a good idea to get the all clear from your doctor before you start classes - ask them to check whether you have Diastasis Recti (separated tummy muscles) as that is helpful to know, so exercises can be safely tailored. 

As classes progress, you will build core strength and revitalise yourself. Please note: if you had a baby a year ago or more and never incorporated a dedicated postnatal class to help your recovery after birth, you may not have fully strengthened your pelvic floor or deepest core - so if you currently suffer with lower back ache, particular after any other exercise, or if you have a little wee when you laugh, cough or sneeze, then come along to this class or our Mama's Yoga sessions to get you all put back together again.
