Postnatal Yoga

YOGA FOR NEW MUMS

Our Postnatal yoga courses are especially designed for the needs of new mums from approx. 6 weeks postpartum. 

In a friendly, non-competitive environment you are encouraged to nurture your post-birth body and take your time to build solid foundations for lasting physical and mental strength.

COURSE CONTENT

WEEK 1:    BREATH, POSTURE & MOVEMENT

Breath & postural awareness, pelvic floor activation, moving safely

WEEK 2:   CORE AWARENESS & DRAMS

assessing abdominal muscle separation, toning the deep core muscles

WEEK 3:   HIP & SPINAL MOBILITY

Releasing tension from and re-aligning hips & spine

WEEK 4:   BACK & ABDOMINAL STRENGTH

Stabilising the mid body

WEEK 5:   BREATHE!

Active and passive chest openers and shoulder releases for better breathing & mental wellbeing

 

WEEK 6:   RELAX & REJUVENATE

Restorative yoga poses & relaxation techniques

 

BABIES WELCOME!

Although the course is mainly focusing on the mum's health, we'll offer options to include the baby in the exercise routines where suitable, which supports bonding and the development of your little one.

 

You may bring your baby carrier - it can be helpful to calm the baby and keep you hands-free in standing poses - but this is not compulsory. During the course we'll discuss the correct use of baby carriers and wraps, so you may wish to wait before making the decision to purchase one :)
