Postnatal Yoga is a fun class concentrating on exercises for postnatal recovery of the mother. Suitable from 4-6 weeks after birth this class provides an opportunity for Mums to do something for themselves! The babies watch, sleep, feed, play together or get involved in some of the exercises. Particular attention is paid to toning and strengthening the pelvic floor and abdominals. Muscle tension arising from feeding or carrying babies is alleviated by specific stretches which release and open the back and shoulders. Spinal and pelvic alignment exercises help improve posture and ease lots of the common aches and pains of new mums. Starting gently, we gradually build up to develop more strength, stamina and flexibility as the weeks go by. Postnatal yoga classes are very relaxed and flexible themselves, and babies often have their own ideas, so we adapt things to meet everybody’s needs. The relaxation, refreshments and chat all help Mums to feel refreshed and energised. You are welcome to come and try a class before signing up for a block.
