Suitable from 6 weeks after the baby’s birth (8 weeks after a C Section) right up until your little one starts to crawl. The class is a fun way to bond with your baby and a great way to return to safe and effective exercise. The sessions are also a great way to meet other new mums who live locally.
For mum there are specially adapted sun salutation and standing postures and postnatal recovery postures which restore the uterus, abdomen and pelvic floor muscles, realign the spine and relieve shoulder, neck and back discomfort. We will also provide you with specific exercises if you have Diastasis Recti (separated abdominal muscles).
The Baby Yoga movements for the little ones are incorporated into songs and nursery rhythms and have many benefits which are detailed below.
