The postnatal period is a very special time for mothers and babies. This 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 over the postnatal year and beyond. 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. 

Time is always given at the end of my Mum & Baby Yoga classes for the mums to enjoy a cup of tea together in the studio. This is a great opportunity for the mums to catch up with each other, share experiences and form friendships.
