Postnatal yoga benefits:-

Postnatal yoga is suitable for complete beginners, as well as those with a regular yoga practise. It is safe and gentle on your body as you recover and regain strength after birth. You can start anytime after you have been signed off to exercise by your GP (usually at your 6-week postnatal check up). 

  • time for you - so important to make regular time for yourself as you transition into this new stage in your life

  • calm your body and mind

  • help to reduce fatigue

  • improve your energy and boost your mood

  • feel confident in your body

Baby massage benefits:-

Positive touch through baby massage is instinctive between parent and baby, and helps to nurture positive attachment, bonding and closeness. As well as learning baby massage techniques to help settle and soothe baby, I truly believe in supporting mums in the "4th trimester" (physically and emotionally). I am fully qualified in postnatal yoga and we will practise gentle and safe yoga based movements, whilst simultaneously engaging in songs, rhymes and massage with baby. These movements will help to ease symptoms from the physical effects of feeding and holding baby, improve pelvic floor tone, gently knit back together the abs and bring balance and alignment back in to the spine and body. We will also explore simple breath work and relaxation techniques. 

  • ​learn a repertoire of calming and soothing techniques, which will become a tool kit for you to use anywhere, anytime that your baby needs them

  • gentle movement and singing help to release endorphins and boost mood in parent and baby

  • learn simple yet powerful breathing techniques to help to cope with the stresses and fatigue of early parenthood

What is baby yoga?

Baby yoga combines soft stretching inspired by traditional yoga poses to help support the development of babies and to aid relaxation and bonding. Parents can expect to learn baby yoga stretches, baby holds and swings, baby massage strokes, and relaxation exercises to practise with their baby. 

These classes are suitable from 6 weeks postpartum after your postnatal check-up with your GP). It is recommended to start with baby massage and then move onto baby yoga once baby has better head control and is more alert (when they are around 4-5 months old, up till pre-crawling).
