Coming along to a Mum & Baby postnatal yoga class can really help mums on so many levels – physical, mental and emotional. Postnatal mum & baby yoga uses movement, breath and relaxation to allow you to reconnect with your body after pregnancy and birth. It’s not an typical ‘exercise’ class as such, and is certainly not a ‘boot camp’, we are not trying to be some perfect instagramable, “look at me, I’m back in my pre-pregnancy jeans” type class. In these classes yes you will start to strengthen and gently work the muscles of your core, your lower back and the pelvic floor. But there is so much more to these classes, and so many brilliant benefits.
