Mother Nurture Northumberland, yoga

Yoga for You and Your Baby Autumn 2020

Yoga and wellbeing for women and babies aged 6 weeks to 6 months, online or in Shilbottle (near Alnwick) Northumberland.

These unique classes combine gentle postpartum recovery exercise for new mums with songs, massages and movements for the babies. Postnatal Yoga is healing from within and includes breathing exercises, pelvic movements, postural awareness and lifting/carrying techniques as well as relaxation with your baby. Baby massage and yoga are woven into the class so you and your baby can both be soothed and restored.

You are welcome to get in touch if you have any concerns about the suitability of this class for you or your baby or schedule a free informal chat with Lucy before making a booking.

  • outdoors only, once a month in Alnwick (free)
  • online only, once a week (£15 for 4 weeks)
  • “The fourth trimester” full three month course, live and online (£90 for 3 months)
