Mum and baby yoga | White Rose Mills | Friday, 20. September 2019

This class will focus mainly on the mum to help strengthen muscles which have been stretched during labour and increase core stability aswell as body confidence.
Mum and Baby yoga is a safe welcoming space for you to attempt to squeeze in a little bit of yoga whilst your baby naps (if you are lucky) or plays on a blanket beside you.  
We will start with gentle stretches for the shoulder and neck (tight spots from all that feeding and constant lifting).  We flow into sun salutations, just like a normal class, and you are free to take a break at any time to attend to the needs of your little one.  We will incorporate the babies into some of the postures and then we will take some time at the end for relaxation and pranayama (breath work) with the babies.
Specific attention is given to retoning and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal area.  If there is time we will do some baby yoga and look at postures to help their digestion or prepare them for sitting up.   
 No yoga experience is necessary. There will also be a bit of time at the end to socialise with the other mums and babies.
Feel free to bring your babies favorite toy to keep them happy and a little blanket for them to lie on.  Some babies just like to watch the whole class from the safety of their portable car seat, while others really like to be involved!   
Tell your new mummy friends about this great class!
