Our Postnatal Yoga classes focus on:
- Strengthening the back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles which may need retraining after pregnancy and birth.
- Postures that will help release tension in the shoulders and neck to help overall increase your energy levels and promote relaxation.
- The class will incorporate your baby and create a fun atmosphere and more opportunity to bond with each other as well as fellow mums.
We recommend that you allow your body time to fully recover so therefore the classes are aimed for when the baby is 6 weeks + until crawling. If you underwent a caesarean section, you may need a couple of weeks longer to heal so double check with your midwife or GP if you’re unsure.
Just to give you some idea of the set up for the postnatal class. There will be room for any buggies/car seats in our changing room on the ground level and as we are limited with space in the studio, changing bags can be left here and come down anytime you need to change the baby.
Up in the studio, you will have the whole mat to yourself and your baby will be directly in front of you propped up between two bolsters. We ask if you can bring a good size blanket for the baby to lie on. The class will run with a relaxed atmosphere and we encourage you to stay in the room if you need to feed your baby. If you had a difficult delivery or recovery after the birth then please check with your GP/midwife that you’re ok to yoga and if you’d like to come in a little earlier to chat with Claire and let her know, you’re very welcome.
