PRE & POSTNATAL
Taking part in a prenatal class comes with many benefits. Whilst the body is going through natural changes sometimes this can create back pain, tight muscles and affect sleep. Yoga will help keep the body supple, support the lower back, strengthen the pelvic floor and improve overall wellbeing. The classes include breathing practices which can help during labour and birth, improve sleep an bring a sense of calm and relaxation to the mind and body. Classes are suitable for the absolute beginner. You can start classes from 14 weeks and attend through till baby arrives. Speaking to your GP/midwife is always advised before starting.
MUM & BABY YOGA
Postnatal yoga is the perfect way to ease back into exercise, start to knit the body back together and begin to feel like yourself again. Attending classes are a great way to meet other mums, bond with your baby and find time to look after yourself. We move through a gentle flow, focus on breath and pelvic floor. We also spend time incorporating babies. You can join the postnatal classes after 6 weeks if you had a non complicated birth. After 8 weeks if you had any complications and after 12 weeks if you had a C-section. Ensure you and baby have had the all clear and your 6 week check up before attending. All classes are suitable for the absolute beginner.
Mummy Fitness is a class where you can start to get back into fitness, you can join during pregnancy or with your little one. The exercises are planned to suit your pre or postnatal needs with exercises being adapted as and when they are needed. We use resistance bands and very light dumbbells along with body weight exercises to create a low impact class. You can take things slow or add in a few extra reps if you're feeling up to it. Babies play in the middle of the room with plenty of toys to keep their minds busy whilst you spend some time focusing on yourself. If and when babies prefer to spend more time with you we incorporate them into the workout. Classes are suitable for beginners.
