Mum and Baby Yoga
Mum and Baby yoga is a great way to bond with your baby while getting back in shape. Many of the yoga poses involve the core area which helps to tone these muscles and restore strength after pregnancy. We also focus a lot on relieving tension in areas such as the neck, shoulders and back as many new moms find feeding and lifting baby can lead to tiredness in these areas. In the class, we also practice breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. This helps to replenish lost energy.
It is suitable to start Mum and baby yoga after your postpartum check-up until your baby is actively crawling. Bring a toy and a blanket for baby.
Babies are involved in some of the yoga postures and beside mom on a blanket for others. They usually respond very well to the simple baby moves.
It’s a relaxed environment and all babies are welcome just as they are. It’s also a great way to meet other new moms in a sociable environment. It also fine if baby wants to sleep through the entire class. Feeding and changing during the class is common as is crying! However, many babies pick up on the relaxed energy in the class and become quite calm.
Mum and Baby yoga is suitable from 6 weeks post-partum (once mums has been cleared by doctor to exercise) and from 12 weeks if you had a caesarean section.
