Mom & Baby Yoga
Congratulations on becoming a new parent! Just as pregnancy is a time of transformation, so is the postnatal period.. If you’ve had your baby, you’ll be adjusting to the new role as a mother. How can mothers transition from expecting a child to a balanced life with baby and family while their minds and bodies are affected by hormonal changes, lack of sleep, and physical strain? Mom and Baby Yoga is a great way to start!
Mom and Baby yoga is a gentle way to help your body recover from childbirth while bonding and having fun with your baby. It is also an opportunity to connect with other mothers and share the experience and insights of raising a child. In these baby friendly cases, special attention is placed on rebuilding core strength of the back, abdomen, and pelvic floor, as well as relieving tension in the neck, and shoulders caused by/due to lifting, carrying and nursing. No previous yoga experience is required.
Staying home for a minimum of 4 weeks is optimum to foster the mother/baby relationship, get breastfeeding off to a good start, and allow your body to recover from pregnancy and birth. 4-6 weeks is a good time to wait before attending class. If you had a C- section, this time should be extended to about 8 weeks, or until you receive the go ahead from your doctor. The age range for babies are newborn to crawling which is around 7-10 months for most babies. You can join a class at anytime as movements are simple and easy to learn.
Regular practice of postnatal Mom and Baby Yoga can:
- Rebuild core strength of the back, abdomen, and pelvic floor
- Enhance strength, endurance, and overall well being
- Ease the emotional hardships by knowing you are not alone
- Make friends with other mothers and babies
- Increase calmness, focus and balance
- Allow a quicker recovery after birth
- Boost energy, lessen fatigue
