So you've had your baby, and now you're looking for something to do together. Perhaps you are keen to re-gain your pre-natal strength and muscle tone, would like to sleep better and meet other local Mums?
I am now offering Birthlight Postnatal Mum & Baby Yoga classes for £45 for a block of 5 sessions - booking is essential:
Tuesday mornings from 11.15am to 12.15pm - Burghfield Common Village Hall, RG7 3EN
Using a gentle, holistic approach, my small classes give Mums a chance to connect with their bodies, their babies and with other new Mums.
Classes can start from 6 weeks after giving birth (or earlier in a one to one setting), right up to when baby is crawling. The early weeks and months after having a baby are such a precious time, and it's so vital that you are allowed time to heal, re-energise and have some time just for YOU. Meeting in a non-judgemental, loving space using a gentle yoga practice, Mums will re-gain strength in the abdominal muscles, pelvic floor muscles and back as well as gently re-aligning posture after carrying a baby for 9 months. Core strength will gently be re-built as well as an emotional release and re-energise.
All encompassing, the course is tailored for you - no matter what kind of pregnancy and birth you may have had, we tailor it to be suitable for all.
AND THERE'S NO CRAZY LEGS BEHIND THE HEAD MOVES, IT'S ALL VERY GENTLE WITH NO PREVIOUS YOGA EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Mums and their babes will be given a warm welcome and a cup of tea (and even a hug if it's been a rough night and a struggle to get out!). The course is in blocks of five weeks, as we will work in a gentle progression from week one to five. The yoga is for Mum, and we interact with babies the whole time, giving them a wonderful show. It's really important for babies to watch their Mums enjoying themselves, doing something for themselves and connecting with their bodies.
We enjoy lots of laughter and smiles, and I fully expect your baby to need a nappy change or feed at some point (or even just a shout) - that is fine, Mums are all in the same experience and we will just go with the flow.
