Post Natal & Baby Yoga

Venue: Canterbury Studio 10-11am. Social time and Refreshments till 11.45am.

These classes nurture both mums and babies and combines baby and postnatal yoga with therapeutic touch. Classes are suitable from one month old until your baby begins to crawl. The classes are progressive and over the course of a few terms you will build a creative repertoire of techniques and sequences that you may wish to play with at home.

In baby yoga we use multisensory play, loving touch and yoga based exercises to support our baby’s development. Our babies experience relaxed, nurturing closeness along with opening, stimulating stretches, enabling active relaxation. This helps them to regulate their responses to tension and discomfort that accompany many common baby ailments. It may also help to heal birth trauma. As baby yoga is relaxing it encourages the baby to be more settled. Classes are suitable from one month old until your baby begins to crawl.

Baby yoga is social and can enhance communication and emotional attachment. We incorporate some singing during movement sequences to engage our babies.

Postnatally, yoga can help to strengthen and tone the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, realign the spine and pelvis, readdress balance and posture, improve overall tone and fitness and release tension. Restorative postures and relaxations can help to replenish energy levels efficiently and rebalance postnatal emotions and hormones.

Breathing techniques can also be used in daily activities to reduce stress and to rejuvenate. Learning to relax with our babies helps to enhance our sense of wellbeing and our coping mechanisms.
