Mums and Bubs Yoga
Your body, mind, emotions and spirit have undergone tremendous challenges and changes while birthing your baby and becoming a new Mum. You may be lacking the energy, motivation or a suitable time to squeeze fitness into your busy day. That’s why I have created this class so that you can come along to an interactive yoga class with your baby.
Yoga for Mums
The class opens with a sharing and caring circle, It gives you an wonderful opportunity to be validated on all the wonderful ways you are parenting your child, when you hear other mum’s with their own stories of challenging experiences it can brings a sense of normality.
Physically the classes focus on releasing muscle stiffness and tension, improving posture, tone of muscles, restoring pelvic floor integrity and replenishing your energy stores. Special attention is placed on developing correct posture to combat the stress on your body and spine caused by poor posture during the feeding, lifting and carrying of your baby.
These classes are friendly, fun and supportive. Throughout the class you can see that the need of your baby are met, you feed, change or comfort your lovely bub just as you would at home.

Yoga for Bubs
The mum’s that come to these classes love that they are interactive. We include the babies in some of the postures. You will learn some simple massage for bub and rhythmic movements accompanied by nursery rhymes and songs. The classes help to support the baby’s overall development as well as facilitate and secure the bond between baby and Mum.
Babies love the company of other babies. These early interactions help them to build skills in creative communication and socialising. Babies are such intelligent beings, just without language as we know it yet! When, as parents, we tune into their language and honor their needs and balance that with our own, we begin to build a well balanced, tolerant and happy environment and society.
