6-Week Mama and Me Yoga (Fridays 1.15pm)
Time & Location
About the Event
Bring your little cherubs along to this six week course which offers the opportunity to bond with your new baby, learn soothing tips for your little one (because we all know how hard those long nights can be!), practice pelvic-floor strengthening techniques and interact with other new mamas. This course is very much for mama AND baby... Whilst some modules may focus on baby (for example, either of our baby massage themed weeks) mama will be stretching, strengthening and rebuilding stamina as we go.
This course is perfect for absolute beginners to yoga too, provided that you have the consent and support to practice from your midwife or other medical practitioner (we advise waiting minimum six-weeks after vaginal birth, and twelve-weeks after c-section before getting started). Please do remember, that you practice yoga at your own risk. However, our highly qualified and experienced instructor will provide tuition, support and individual modifications as we move through each session to ensure that you and baby are both comfortable and confident throughout the practice.
PLEASE NOTE: We understand that babies are unpredictable! PLEASE do not worry if your little one is prone to reflux, needs walking around, cries often or even sleeps throughout the class. We are a breast-feeding friendly space, have baby-changing facilities and don't mind you bringing any quiet toys that help to soothe or entertain your baby. Please leave prams, pushchairs or strollers in the car (feel free to bring little one in their carseat, carrier/sling/wrap, or carry them in your arms).
The course takes place once per week on recurring Fridays (31/1, 7/2, 14/2, 28/2, 6/3 and 13/3) for one hour each time (12pm-1pm). Please note that we will have no class on February the 21st in order to coincide with local school half-term holidays.
