Being a mum is the most rewarding job in the world but it is also tiring and, at times, hard work. It is so important for you to relax but that can seem near impossible with a baby in the house…Our Mum & Baby yoga classes offer you a chance to do just that.
Classes last around an hour and involve yoga for mum, yoga for baby and some lovely deep relaxation together. We include yoga postures for mum AND for baby; this is not just ‘baby yoga.’ All of the postures can be practised with or without your baby, depending on how you prefer to focus. Sometimes the class is quiet and sometimes there is crying. Sometimes the babies are full of fun and sometimes they want to snuggle up to mummy and feed. Sometimes the mums are knackered and sometimes they’re full of beans. But there are always appropriate practices for each pair. For all ages, the class has a co-operative spirit of ‘give and take’, alternating yoga for babies, with yoga for mums and yoga together.
A typical session includes baby stretches that take small bodies through a full range of movement which often astonishes (and inspires) their mums. We incorporate baby massage, breathing and focused yoga postures for the mums and postures-for-two to give mums and babies new ways to relate to each other. For mummies, we focus on gently working the abdominal muscles, slowly and safely getting the body back to pre-baby shape whilst helping to build strength, stamina and fitness.
This class is suitable from 6 weeks (8-10 following c-section) all the way up to around 8 months.
