Mums + Bubs is all about moving the focus back onto Mums.
With your beautiful baby right there beside you, this class is for creating a space for them and equally importantly: yourself. Mums and Bubs is a chance for you to connect with your bub, as well as to reconnect with your own body and practice, in a safe space. We currently have a special 6-Week rolling program with our yoga teacher (Doula), and nurse (Paige Isley).
Mums can enter the program at any stage. Our class will allow you to join other like-minded mums in a relaxed and positive environment. Many of our participants have practiced with us for quite some time, and many are brand new to yoga. The class caters perfectly for both! Note: Before attending, please enquire and confirm with your doctor regarding the suitability of your return to an exercise program.
Calm Mum, Calm Baby – Here, you will learn pranayama (breathing techniques) and asana (yoga postures) to support and nourish your nervous system.
Reconnect with your Body – This involves a gentle flow to get you out of your head and into your heart.
Reinvigorate your Pelvic Floor – While we flow through this week’s yoga practice, learn how to bring awareness to pelvic floor muscles and activate them consciously.
Relieve Neck and Shoulder Pain – Here, we will focus on opening the front of the body and strengthening the posterior chain to improve posture and bring ease to your body.
Nourish your Mind and Body – This involves a flow to ease the mind, then we will dive into deeply restorative yin yoga practice for new mothers. To make matters even more blissful, there will be a guided Yoga Nidra to practice the skill of efficient deep rest; certainly a useful skill to have with a newborn baby!
Bond with your Baby – a beautiful practice for mum and a soft massage for baby, we will end the practice with a guided meditation to support connection.
