Postpartum Yoga

Mommy & Me (Ages 6 weeks – 1 year) ~ This multi-level postpartum yoga class is specifically designed to strengthen your body after giving birth, and allow you to practice yoga with your baby. Through various yoga asanas, you will regain the strength of your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, develop inner and outer strength, and meet other new moms and babies. Classes are very relaxed, and accommodate the needs of both mother and baby. We practice poses which allow you to use your baby as resistance, or added weight, to help build strength. You will also learn some therapeutic massage and baby yoga techniques, which you can use at home. And, we always include some baby songs and chants! You can start taking the Mommy & Me as soon as you have approval from your doctor to resume physical activity. This is usually after the visit to your OB/GYN or Midwife at five or six weeks postpartum. This class is specifically for babies ages 6 weeks to approximately 1 year (pre-walkers).
