POSTNATAL YOGA

Yoga can allow postnatal students to focus on movements and breathing specifically tailored to a body after delivery. Special attention is placed on developing core strength and stability – involving a particular emphasis on strengthening the back, abdomen and pelvic floor, as well as relieving tension in areas such as the neck and shoulders
Previous yoga experience is not necessary to fully benefit, and women who have practiced yoga before will find these classes are a great way to transition back to their pre-pregnancy practice.
You are welcome to involve your baby in the movements or have them  close by on a blanket. Sometimes babies sleep all class, other times they may want to be fed and other times they are happy to see and hear the other babies around them. Fussing and crying is also totally normal, the babies are welcomed just as they are.
It is a good idea to wait for about 4 – 6 weeks after delivery before participating in postnatal yoga and 10 - 12 weeks if you have had a caesarian delivery (belly birth).
