A series of two workshops, each lasting two hours, for pregnant women and their birth partner/supporter. Ideally the workshop 1 would be taken at around 32 weeks pregnant and workshop 2 at around 36 weeks. However, they can be also be taken together as a one day or weekend retreat.
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.
I'm still practicing and teaching many of the things I learned during my first pregnancy and the postnatal recovery time that followed. Have I ever gone back to 'normal yoga'? Well, no, because frankly I have never gone back to 'normal' (whatever that means) and also, I discovered something exciting about my body in the process of having a baby - it's FEMALE!
Sound the bell, put your hands together and get ready for yoga time. A short yoga practice for parents and older babies or toddlers followed by sharing, snacks and playtime.
Monthly on Wednesdays, 9.30-10.45am.
