Postnatal yoga – mum & baby yoga
Postnatal mum & baby yoga Croydon Thursdays 10-11am
A class for you as well as your baby
*Classes are continuing through February half term*
What is postnatal mum & baby yoga?
Hi, my name is Janice and I have been teaching postnatal mum and baby yoga in Croydon since 2013. I have a degree in midwifery and 15 years experience of teaching yoga.
I love teaching these classes as they are fun and informal. The mums make new friends and the babies love it. It is quality time for you and your baby whilst getting your body gently back into shape.
The first half of the class is mostly focused on strength, mobility and flexibility for mums with emphasis on pelvic floor health, back ache, tension release and any tummy separation (diastasis recti). The second half is more for the babies with massage, movements and play.
I’m always told that babies sleep well afterwards!
When to start postnatal yoga
For mum & babies from 6 weeks to around 9 – 11 months
(when your baby starts to crawl around and move a lot).
Check with your GP at you and your baby’s 6 week check that you are both fine to commence yoga classes if you had a vaginal delivery. It is usually safe to commence classes at 12 weeks after a c-section delivery.
